Is/Was The Kid Really Back?

Their 15 game win streak was snapped by…the Buffalo Sabres? The first full game missed by Sidney Crosby since breaking his jaw, and the Pens can’t get the W. Coincidence? […]

Retire the Penguins Blue Jerseys of Doom!

Following in the Footsteps of the 1992-93 Pittsburgh Penguins

There is something to be said about a team in search of history. The Miami Heat captivated the entire sports world with their assault on the NBA consecutive wins record. In the end it was not meant to be; the Heat’s streak ended at 27 games, a mere six games shy of the 1972-32 Los Angeles Lakers record of 33. Now our attention shifts to the Pittsburgh Penguins and their pursuit of the NHL’s record for wins in a row, which at the moment stands at 17 and is held by, you guessed it, the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Waking Up in Boston to Jarome Iginla in Pittsburgh

Jarome Iginla is a Boston Bruin–at least that’s what you thought if you went to bed before midnight, much like I did.

In a strange turn of events, he’s not. In case you haven’t already heard, the Penguins swooped in and acquired Iginla in a shocking last minute deal. Iginla chose to waive his no-trade clause for Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and a 13-game winning streak over a team that can’t hold a lead in the 3rd period. Iginla chose to be a supporting cast member rather than the go-to guy in a pivotal game. Iginla wants to win a Stanley Cup, after all.
