Sidney Crosby is a dominant force on the ice, one which always gives the Pittsburgh Penguins a shot at victory. After falling in the first round of last year’s playoffs, Sid the Kid looks to be locked-in and ready for redemption. He’ll be joined once again by fellow stars Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin, but Pittsburgh also took the step of adding premier wing Phil Kessel in hopes of making a deep playoff run. With the very capable Marc-Andre Fleury returning to work between the posts, the Penguins are most definitely a team to be reckoned with in 2015-16.

Pittsburgh Penguins 2015-2016 News and Updates
11/19/15 - Several of the Pittsburgh Penguins players took some time out of their busy schedules to volunteer at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank to help get Thanksgiving dinners to 100 families in the area. Taking the time to support a good cause when days off are few and far between says a lot about these guys. You can support the Pens by being at one of their upcoming games at the Consol Energy Center. On Thursday, Nov. 19, they will host the Avalanche and on Saturday, Nov. 21, the San Jose Sharks will be in town. Don’t forget to get your tickets from us today! Prices start at $34 and $55, respectively.
11/12/15 - We’re halfway through the month of November, and the Pittsburgh Penguins are evenly split between wins and losses for the month. This last week they bested Montreal 4-3, but then lost twice in a row to the Blue Jacket and the Devils. Hopefully they will feel a little more comfortable the next few weeks, as they are slated to play their next four at home. On Tuesday, Nov. 17, they will face the Minnesota Wild. After a day’s rest, they will play the Avalanche on Thursday, Nov. 19. Tickets for either game at the Consol Energy center in Pittsburgh start at right around $40. Come support the Penguins as they tackle on these tough teams!
11/6/15 - It’s officially month two of the NHL season, and the Pittsburgh Penguins are playing especially well. They are on a five-game-long winning streak, and four of those games have been earned on the road. Wednesday evening, they took a fast 3-0 lead over the Canucks, thanks to goals from David Perron, Sidney Crosby and Eric Fehr. The Canucks later shrunk that lead by scoring two of their own late in the game. Pittsburgh managed to hold on to the lead and came out with the win. Hopefully that momentum will carry them through yet another road game against the Flames this Saturday. On Tuesday, Nov. 11, they will return home to face the Canadiens.
10/29/15 - The rivalry between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals may not be portrayed as fiercely in the media as it once was, but for players, it’s still intense. The fire was perhaps renewed somewhat last season, as the typically dominant Penguins lost three of four total games. The teams met Wednesday evening for the first time this year. Scoreless until the third period, both teams scored to render a tie at 1-1. Pittsburgh then had a great pass from Evgeni Malkin to Phil Kessel, who was able to score in the front. The Pens sealed the win after a long score on an empty net. They will play four on the road before returning to the Consol Energy Center on Nov. 11.
10/22/15 - The NHL has many prominent players, but perhaps none are as fun to watch as Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He is playing especially well right now, but according to him, “I’m just playing my game. No changes.” He helped his team earn an overtime victory against the Panthers this week after scoring during a power play, a component of the game that has been essential to the team’s success. Are you on the fence about getting tickets to see him and the rest of the Penguins play? You have your chance on Thursday evening (Oct. 22), as they are playing at home against the Dallas Stars. Tickets are on sale now for $37 and up.
10/13/15 - The Pittsburgh Penguins have had better starts to the season. They lost their opener game against the Dallas Stars on October 8 and were shut out an embarrassing 3 – 0. The Penguins were hoping to get back on track against the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday, but ultimately lost again 2 – 1. Both defeats have been on the road, so the Penguins will look to improve when they take on the Montreal Canadiens tonight with the support of the loyal home crowd. You will definitely want to be there for this matchup, so get your ticket before they are gone. Prices currently start at $52 and tickets are nearly sold out.
10/8/15 - Even though it seems as if the NHL just finished their last game of the season, all teams are getting revved up to start again this month. The Pittsburgh Penguins barely made it into postseason play in the final week of the 2014-2015 season, by beating out Buffalo. Unfortunately, the Penguins playoff play was very short when they took on one of the best teams in the league, the New York Rangers. They did incur a lot of injuries on the defensive side late in the season, which could be why they had such a brief showing in the playoffs. Watch the Penguins live this season by grabbing your tickets today and see what they can do this year.
9/17/15 - Dropping four out of five games to the NY Rangers sent the Pittsburgh Penguins home early in last year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs. This year, Sidney Crosby aims to take his team to the second round and beyond. The Kid will have plenty of firepower to help make it happen, too: the Penguins stacked the deck this offseason in hopes of remedying last year’s issues. They brought in Eric Fehr, Sergei Plotnikov, Phil Kessel and Nick Bonino to form what might be the most potent offensive attack in the league. You can get your first look at this year’s players with preseason tickets for Consol Energy Arena! Come out on Tuesday night for Hurricanes vs. Penguins—with tickets starting at just $11, it’s a great value and a great way to spend an evening!
4/23/15 - Sid the Kid broke out of his offensive slump just in time for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who managed to steal home ice advantage from the New York Rangers—at least for a short time. Sidney Crosby put in two goals for his squad, lifting the Penguins to a critical 4-3 victory on Saturday night to even their first round series versus the Rangers at one game apiece. New York recovered two nights later, however, taking a 2-1 win in Pittsburgh to reclaim the series lead. Crosby and company will look to even things up once again on Wednesday night as the series remains at the Consol Energy Center for Game Four. Tickets are on sale now so you can be a part of all the action and excitement!
4/14/15 - Clawing their way into the NHL postseason by claiming the second and final wild card position in the East, the Pittsburgh Penguins are ready to start fresh in their search for the Stanley Cup. They will open their first round series on the road, heading to Madison Square Garden to take on the New York Rangers, who finished with a league-leading 113 points in the regular season. Superstar center Sidney Crosby will try to lead his squad to an upset victory, as his offense faces off with feared goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. Can Pittsburgh steal a game at the Garden to claim home ice advantage? Get in to MSG on April 16th for as low as $170, or be a part of the action at Consol Energy Arena for Game Three starting at just $58!
4/8/15 - The Pittsburgh Penguins have practically sealed their spot in this season’s playoffs. Unfortunately, they are currently on a three game losing streak to end their regular season play. The Penguins were ready and anxious to take on the Philadelphia Flyers on April 5. On April 1, the Penguins and Flyers faced off and the Flyers left with the W, giving the Penguins more reason to take home the win on April 5. Because of the lack of offense the Penguins had on Sunday and the Flyers goalie making 46 saves, the Penguins left with a 1-4 defeat. Every game is incredibly important going forward to determine playoff contention. See them try to grasp their last regular season win against the New York Islanders on April 10. Tickets start at $9 a piece.
3/31/15 - On a good winning streak, the Pittsburgh Penguins are getting ready for the upcoming playoff games. On March 29, 2015 the Penguins took on the San Jose Sharks. They were determined to skate away the victors after they lost their last match up against the Sharks in a nail biting shootout. Some things never change, because the Penguins once again took the Sharks to a shootout situation. The Penguins started out strong with two first period goals and the Sharks came back to tie it up in the second period. Even though the Penguins were short a defenseman the whole game and short a player during most of overtime, they were able to claim the shootout and add a win to their record. Watch them hit the ice on April 1 against the Flyers. Tickets are available for $29.
3/27/15 - The Pittsburgh Penguins are trying to finish off their regular season play with a bang before heading into the playoffs. Luckily they ended their four game losing streak when they played the Arizona Coyotes on March 21, 2015. The Penguins got off to a rough start when one of their best defensive guys was injured during the warm up process. They also let the Coyotes score easily in the first two minutes of the game. However, after the first quarter the Penguins offensive line played intensely and aggressively resulting in a 3-1 win against the Coyotes. Watch how they match up against the Coyotes when they play them again on March 28 at the Consol Energy Center. Tickets for that game start at an affordable $9.
3/18/15 - The Pittburgh Penguins were on a good role winning four games in a row, followed by one loss and another two wins. Unfortunately the tides have turned and the Penguins have lost their last three games. They played against the New Jersey Devils on March 17 and were unable to get the puck in the net, leaving their home turf silenced with a 0-2 ending. Cory Schneider, the goalie for the Devils saved all 35 shot attempts and completed his fifth shutout of the season. The Penguins had plenty of offensive opportunities, but weren’t able to seal the deal. Watch the Penguins dig themselves out of this losing streak at the Consol Energy Center on March 24. They face off against the St. Louis Blues, which is sure to be an exciting game. Tickets range from $5-$377.
3/13/15 - The Pittsburgh Penguins have been doing very well in the last few weeks, but they ran into a small bump when they took on the San Jose Sharks. Sidney Crosby was able to tie the game up seven minutes into the final period, but they were unable to take the lead. No one scored in overtime either. Then, in the shootout, they went all the way to the eighth round before, sadly, losing the match. Despite this small setback, the Penguins are still only five points behind the leading team, the New York Rangers. In fact, they have won six of their last eight games. Additionally, the Penguins now have three consecutive home games, so it's an excellent chance for them to take the lead and for you to catch them in action.
3/6/15 - The Pittsburgh Penguins continued their winning streak, managing to get up to four consecutive wins, but unfortunately it seems the Colorado Avalanche were too much for them. Marking the first in a series of away games, the Penguins were shut out in both the first and the second period. The gap between them and the top of the Metropolitan Division has grown slightly, so they cannot afford too many more rough games. Additionally, Pittsburgh only has eight home games remaining in the regular season. Starting on March 12th, the Penguins will have three back to back home games. Tickets for the first, against the Edmonton Oilers, begin at $67. Hopefully the Penguins can gain some momentum and catch up to the New York Islanders before the season winds down.
2/25/15 - The Pittsburgh Penguins are starting to turn things around. Their most recent game, against the Florida Panthers, is their strongest victory yet and is their second win in a row. They started strong, shutting the Panthers out in both the first and the second period, but the final period is when the Penguins really took off. They got three unanswered goals within nine minutes. While Florida did manage to get one past Pittsburgh's goalie, Marc-Andre Fleury, he was a brick wall for the rest of the game, stopping 34 shots, even more than the Penguins themselves took. Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist were the stars of the game, each getting two goals and adding one assist. Pittsburgh takes on the Washington Capitals next, then will return to play the Columbus Blue Jackets on March 1st. Tickets start at $95.
2/18/15 - Sadly, the Pittsburgh Penguins continue to struggle on the ice. They would be considered doing well in any other situation, but with the season winding down and the Penguins in a tight race for the top of their division, they simply cannot afford to perform only okay. Losing two of their last four games, the New York Rangers managed to barely edge Pittsburgh out for 2nd in the Metropolitan Division. They are close behind, but catching up to the New York Islanders, who have six more wins, will be a little more difficult. Penguins fans should watch the team closely because their next few games are pivotal to their entire season. The next game to look out for is against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Feb. 19th and tickets start at $76.
2/12/15 - The Pittsburgh Penguins seem to be taking control of the ice again for the most part. Strangely, their play has been greatly binary lately. Both of the games they won this week saw the Penguins shut out their opponents, but they lost their third game and failed to score even once. The Vancouver Canucks seemed to be just too much for Pittsburgh as they give up five points throughout the three periods. On the positive side, the Penguins took more shots than the Canucks, they just had trouble getting it into the goal. Also, this marks the end of Pittsburgh’s series of away games. Hopefully, they will be able to make a strong comeback as they play the Redwings on their home ice on Feb. 11th. Tickets start at $71.
2/4/15 - The Pittsburgh Penguins got out of their winning streak last week, but they are not in the clear yet. Uncharacteristically, they continue to struggle, losing half of their last four games. Most recently, they just could not get their game together when they played the Nashville Predators on Feb. 1st. Even worse, the Penguins got shut out for the second time in three games. This loss brings their record to 28-14-8. Despite their recent losses, the Penguins are still in second place for the Metropolitan Division, right on the heels of the New York Islanders. If they can get their momentum back in the coming weeks, they could have a real shot at the Stanley Cup. They Travel to Edmonton next to play the Oilers and will return on Feb. 11th.
1/30/15 - Coming off a five game losing streak, the Pittsburgh Penguins got back into the winning column when they hosted the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday. At the end of the second period, the teams were tied. The Penguins came on strong in the third period with three goals and held the Jets at one. The Penguins come back home on Sunday (2/1) to face the Nashville Predators. Tickets are going fast for this game, because everyone loves the Penguins. Razorgator has tickets starting at $85. After they play the Predators, the Penguins will back on the road for 10 days. Get your hockey fix now while they’re in town. Penguins’ Sidney Crosby should be back on the ice after an injury kept him out of the All-Stars game.
1/22/15 - The Pittsburg Penguins have a chance to close the gap between them and New York Islanders for first place in the Metropolitan Division when they face the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday, Jan. 20. They lost their most recent game 5-2 against the New York Rangers on Sunday, Jan. 18. The Rangers started the game strong, with a score in the first minute of the game, followed by a second in minute six. Pittsburg finally responded with a power play goal by Sidney Crosby in the 15th minute of the first period, but the Rangers already had the momentum for the game and continued to dominate. The Penguins next face the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday, Jan. 27, after the break for the NHL All Star Weekend. Tickets remain on sale for the Blackhawks game, starting at $29.
1/15/15 - The Pittsburgh Penguins are just one point behind the New York Islanders for first position in the Metropolitan Division after beating the Minnesota Wild 7-2 on Tuesday, Jan. 13th. The Penguins' first shot came from Maracel Goc about six minutes into the game. David Perron scored the second goal six minutes later, but Wild player Jonas Bordin scored early in the second period to bring it to a close game. It wasn't long before Chris Kunitz answered, and during the third period, the Penguins ensured the victory by scoring four more times. This win marks the second consecutive win, and they will be looking for a third when they face the Islanders on Friday, January 16th. Both teams will want that first place ranking, ensuring it will be a good game. Tickets remain on sale, starting at $71.
1/9/15 - The Pittsburg Penguins lost 3-2 in overtime to the Boston Bruins in their latest bought on Wednesday, Jan. 7. Despite the loss, the Penguins remain ranked 1st in the Metropolitan Division, with a record of 24-10-6. The Bruins' Patrice Bergeron scored the winning goal in overtime, which was also his second goal of the game. The Penguins were down 2-1 when they entered the third period, but a goal by Evgeni Malkin early on brought the game to a tie. The Penguins played well and had the chance to score in four different power plays and outshot the Bruins 26-14; however, the team was unable to capitalize on their efforts for a win. The Penguins next meet the Montreal Canadiens in Montreal on Jan. 10. Tickets remain on sale, starting at $141.
1/2/15 - The Pittsburg Penguins lost 1-3 against the New Jersey Devils on December 29. Despite the loss, they remain ranked 1st in the Metropolitan Division, with a 22-9-5 record. The team has faced several injuries and illnesses in their players, which has led to a four game losing streak that is the longest losing streak for the team since 2012. However, a few players will soon be returning from the injured reserve list and see the ice. Several may even be ready when the Penguins face the Carolina Hurricanes on New Year's Eve for the last game of 2014. The team will be looking for a win to break their losing streak. They begin 2015 with a home match on the 2nd against the Tampa Bay Lightening. Tickets starting at $10 remain available.
12/22/14 - The Penguins defeated the Colorado Avalanche in overtime on Thursday with a final score of 1-0.

This marks his sixth shutout of the season. The Penguins also faced the Florida Panthers recently, coming away with a 3-1 victory on Saturday. Pittsburgh is now at a 22-6-4 record for the season. With 45 saves, Fleury again helped his team win. After missing three games for illness, Sidney Crosby returned to his team and scored a goal against the Panthers.

12/19/14 - The two top teams in the Atlantic Division and Metropolitan Division, the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Pittsburgh Penguins, faced off on Monday. They each scored once in the first period, but the Penguins took off in the second with two unanswered points. Steve Downie led the Penguins with one goal and one assist. A strong victory for Pittsburgh, and a final score of 2-4, strengthens their position on the top of their division. Now at 21-6-4, Pittsburgh has been doing incredible this season, but the New York Islanders are tied with them for wins, so they can't let their guard down quite yet. They will be taking on the Florida Panthers next on the 20th. Tickets are available starting at $29.
12/12/14 - The Pittsburgh Penguins are continuing to dominate the Metropolitan Division, but they were dealt a disappointing loss by the New York Rangers. After Nick Spaling gave Pittsburgh an early lead in the first period, they fell behind in the second. Then a whirlwind third period tied the game up at the end of the final period. Unfortunately, the Rangers were able to edge ahead in overtime by a single point, which brought the final score to 3-4. Steve Downie and Nick Spaling each got one score and one assist. The Penguins maintain the top position for their division, having 18-6-3. Hopefully, they will return to dominating the ice when they take on the Calgary Flames on the 12th. Tickets are available starting as low as $10.
12/5/14 - In a very close game on Tuesday, the Pittsburgh Penguins were able to come out with a victory, their second in a row. They managed to beat out their opponents, the New Jersey Devils, by a single point. Both teams’ strong defenses were able to shut out the other in the first two periods. It wasn’t until the beginning of the final period that Evgeni Malkin was able to score the game’s only point. Blake Comeau and Jayson Megna assisted. This brings Pittsburgh to 17-5-2 and helps reinforce their position at the top of the Metropolitan Division. They actually have one less win than the number 2 team, but 2 less losses. They will be looking to expand their wins on the 4th when they take on the Vancouver Canucks.
11/26/14 - Following two frustrating losses in a row to the New York Islanders last week, the Pittsburgh Penguins are looking to bounce back in their upcoming match against the Boston Bruins on Monday night. Despite the double loss to the Islanders, Pittsburgh continues to have one of the NHL’s top-rated offenses, and is one of the top scoring teams per game in the league. With the absence of right wing Pascal Dupuis because of blood clots in his lungs, the Penguins are looking to other key players to shore up their defense. Luckily the Penguins have goaltender Marc Andre-Fleury, who continues to be a standout for the team, performing above his save percentages from past years. Don’t miss your chance to see the Penguins take on the Bruins this Monday night, with tickets starting at just $62.
11/21/14 - After a loss to the New York Rangers last week, the Pittsburgh Penguins were looking to regain their traction in a rematch against the Rangers on Saturday night. A stunning shootout resulted in a tricky situation: both teams walked off the ice believing they had won the game. Dan Boyle’s supposed game-winning shot hit the goalpost, bounced off, and then hit Boyle’s stick to bounce back into the goal, past Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. Luckily a replay caught the double hit, and both teams were called back out onto the ice to finish out the game. The Penguins’ achieved a win 3-2 after Brandon Sutter got the puck past Ranger’s goalie Henrik Lundqvist, and Fleury managed a tough glove save. The Penguins are currently 1st in the Metropolitan Division.

11/14/14 - The Pittsburgh Penguins had an exciting season with a seven game winning streak up until they met the New York Rangers this last week. Pittsburgh hasn’t played New York since the playoff last year, so the tension in the air was thick. The Penguins started off hot and nearly scored a goal first, getting through the Ranger’s Henrik Lundqvist only to have it go off the goal line. The Penguins were not able to recover after that, and the Rangers went on to score several goals. Although it seemed like the Penguins went into the game with the upper hand and even skated better, they fell to the Rangers 5-0. The Penguins play the Rangers again on Saturday, November 15th in Pennsylvania. Tickets are still available starting at $29.
11/7/14 - The Pittsburgh Penguins are a solid team at 1st in the Metropolitan Division with an 8-2-1 record. They’re on five game winning streak after a blowout game against the Minnesota Wild.

10/30/14 - The Pittsburgh Penguins came from behind to win against the New Jersey Devils in a Tuesday night game on home ice. At 5:14 into the second period, the Penguins were down by 2 goals, but they rallied after a power play and scored 4 goals in the remainder of the period. Then, the Penguins gained 3 more goals in the third period. On November 1, they face off against the Buffalo Sabres, who are currently ranked 8th in the Atlantic Division. The Penguins are 2nd in the Metropolitan Division and getting stronger. It was just announced that Olli Maatta is facing a serious surgery next week that will take him out of the game for a time. He is expected to appear in this home game, but it will leave a hole in the lineup for future games.
5/12/14 – The Pens need you! Get loud for Game 7 in Consol as Pittsburgh looks to lock up the series that began to their advantage 3-1. Tuesday’s decisive game is down 61 percent in price since the start of the NHL Divisional Finals against the Rangers, with tickets starting at $82 (SRO) to see the two Metropolitan Division rivals face off. 100 level Penguins playoff tickets May 13 are as little as $149, while club level seats start at $273.

The Penguins went 5-0-0 against the Blue Jackets during the 2013-14 season series, finishing 16 points ahead of fourth place Columbus. However, a Game 2 win in Pittsburgh on Saturday with a 4-3 double-overtime decision, and Columbus evened the first round playoff series 1-1 and will head home for Monday’s Game 3 (min. $95) and Wednesday’s Game 4 (min. $93). Can Pittsburgh get back to momentum and make sure that Columbus fans do not see their first postseason victory in 14 years? Forcing a Game 5, the Pens will return home to Consol Energy Center Saturday (min. $78).
4/17/14 – Is the close proximity and budding rivalry between the Pens and Blue Jackets contributing to one of the most expensive ticket prices in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs?

Pittsburgh rallied past neighboring Columbus in Game 1, one in which Marc-Andre Fleury showed confidence as he faced playoff pressures. Pittsburgh Penguins playoff tickets for the Divisional Semifinals are averaging $312 over four home games – Game 1 ($125), Game 2 ($216), Game 5 ($364), and Game 7 ($398). Last year, first round playoff tickets at Consol Energy Center averaged $270.
4/8/14 – Wednesday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings is looking more and more like a first round preview. While an opening round matchup would not put the Stanley Cup on the line per say as it has the last two times these teams have met in the postseason, still expect fast-paced, high-scoring games. Pittsburgh Penguins tickets to tomorrow’s heated showdown begin at $34, one-third the cost of Saturday’s contest against the Flyers. While the weekend game may or may not have playoff implications, the two teams always play hard; Philadelphia has won both of their previous two meetings and will likely have something to play for as they try to avoid a wild-card spot.
4/1/14 - Pittsburgh will try to sweep their four-game season series with the Hurricanes and win back-to-back division titles for the first time in 20 years Tuesday night when they host Carolina. Having already clinched their eighth consecutive postseason berth, the Penguins hold a 13-point lead over the second-place New York Rangers. Surpassing the 100-point mark for the sixth time in eight years with a win over the Chicago Blackhawks Sunday, the Pittsburgh Penguins boast 8-1 odds of winning the Stanley Cup this year.
3/27/14 – The Pens have already run away with the Metropolitan Division and are looking to improve on their last postseason run. As they prep for a run at the Stanley Cup, they’ll be without center Evgeni Malkin who is out two to three weeks while recovering from a foot injury. Pittsburgh has just six games left at Consol Energy Center before the playoffs start. Don’t miss the Penguins final regular season home games as they look to shorten the gap between them and the Eastern Conference leading Bruins.
3/19/14 – After dropping a weekend home-and-home series to rivals Philadelphia, the Pens bounced back and topped the Dallas Stars 5-1 Tuesday night. Forwards Chris Kunitz (lower body) and James Neal (concussion), who missed Pittsburgh's past two games, returned to the Penguins’ lineup. Kunitz scored his 32nd goal and Crosby netted two goals. Following tomorrow’s road game in Detroit, the Penguins will return home for four straight - Tampa Bay Lightning (avg. $156), St. Louis Blues (avg. $192), Phoenix Coyotes (avg. $142), Los Angeles Kings (avg. $168).
3/10/14 – In a possible Stanley Cup Final preview, the Penguins beat the Ducks in a SO to overcome a 5-3 loss a night earlier at San Jose. In the most anticipated game heading into the weekend, Brandon Sutter’s had the deciding goal in the sixth round of a shootout to give Pittsburgh just their second win in six games. The Penguins will try to end a rollercoaster road trip (2-2-0) on a high tonight, when they take on the Capitals in Washington. Now second best in the East (behind Boston Bruins), Pittsburgh will return to Consol Energy Center Tuesday night in a rematch of Monday night’s Metropolitan Division battle. Pittsburgh Penguins tickets are limited, ranging from $236-$284.
3/3/14 – The Penguins will try to snap their two-game losing streak since the Olympic break Tuesday in Nashville when they take on the Predators in their second of five straight road games. Pittsburgh was bested by the Blackhawks in the Stadium Series finale Saturday at Soldier Field, in harsh conditions. Sidney Crosby was held to just three shots in the star’s first Chicago appearance since his rookie season in 2005-06. Looking forward though, the Pittsburgh Penguins schedule is hopeful; the team’s next five opponents come against teams they’ve recorded two points against in their last meeting – Nashville (3/4), San Jose (3/6), Anaheim (3/7), and Washington (3/10, 3/11).
2/25/14 - Pittsburgh's fears have been confirmed: in the aftermath of Sochi, defenseman Paul Martin will be sidelined for 1-2 months from a broken hand. Additionally, Pittsburgh coach Dan Blysma is now under the microscope for Team USA's uncanny reenactment of the Pens' 2013 playoff run by failing to place, let alone win gold, in the Olympics—still, fans know the big-moment collapse overseas is independent of the Penguins' shot at the Cup this year.
