  • Gary Bettman praises the NHL’s new website and app (which are currently awful)

    Puck Drunk Love "If you haven’t noticed, the NHL has a new look on its digital properties. The reaction has been poor to say the least, but it goes beyond the usual criticisms that come with a major redesign. As fans struggle to find features they used to use and adapt to the new look, Gary Bettman is more than..." February 12

  • Reading the trade market tea leaves

    TSN "Another week, another exercise in trying to put 10 pounds of fertilizer in a five-pound bag. It’s T-minus 19 days and counting to the NHL trade deadline, so let’s try to size up some of the situations/players we’ll be watching and talking about between now and then. In honour of the Dustin..." February 10

  • What if an NHL goalie has to go to the bathroom?

    SI "Unlike his fellow NHL players who tailor their game day meals with an eye on fuel and nutrition, Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby follows his gut whenever he is scheduled to start. “It’s all based around what’s not going to make my stomach upset,” the current Vezina Trophy frontrunner says. “It’s..."

  • Penguins win 6-2; Crosby scores two breakaway goals

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Wasn’t so long ago that the Penguins seemed lucky to scratch out two goals in a game. On good nights.

  • Can Sidney Crosby catch Patrick Kane in scoring race?

    The Score "The NHL's scoring race is over. Except, maybe it isn't.

But if there's anyone who might be able to challenge..." February 08

  • Penguins take down Panthers in OT, 3-2

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Kris Letang was taking nothing for granted. Not while he watched as Sidney Crosby slid a pass onto his stick from the far side of the ice.

  • Crosby gets hat trick, Penguins hold off Senators

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "Just a couple of days into his tenure as the Penguins' coach, Mike Sullivan attempted to draw the distinction between outplaying and outscoring the opposition as he explained the up-tempo style he planned to emphasize.

  • Letang's lead is for Penguins to follow

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "Only a few days before the NHL's All-Star break, Kris Letang called out to the Penguins' top prospect, the one some refer to as the next Kris Letang.

  • John Scott, NHL All-Star Game set ratings record for NBCSN

    Yahoo! Sports "There was no doubt that the perfect storm of The John Scott Phenomenon and the NHL’s reinvigorated 3-on-3 All-Star Game format had provided an uptick in attention for the midseason classic. The only question was if that would actually translate into a spike in viewership as well, or if the..." February 01

  • As much as anyone, All-Star Malkin's steady game has helped Penguins stay afloat

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "When Penguins center Evgeni Malkin scans the ice here at the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday, he'll see plenty of players with traits worth admiring. Patrick Kane's nasty wrist shot. Jamie Benn's overwhelming power-forward game. Erik Karlsson's offensive artistry. There is one attribute of a..." January 31

  • Komarov makes amends with Letang at All-Star weekend

    The Score "Leo Komarov used his unlikely All-Star inclusion to clear some outstanding air.

  • There are barely any good NHL teams and it sucks

    New York Post "Parity? Yes. Good hockey? No. The prevalent idea that permeates down from the NHL offices on Sixth Avenue states having so many teams so closely bunched makes for good entertainment.

  • Self-aware NHL all-star John Scott has many in his corner

    Toronto Sun "Midway through the second period, John Scott began to grow antsy. The hulking enforcer, who had been sitting for nearly 15 minutes in a 2-2 game, stood up, shook loose his legs, and looked pleadingly in the direction of the head coach. But it was no use. It was clear Scott’s place was on the..." January 28
