    PensBurgh: NHL Trade deadline: Maatta injury should re-align Penguins' priorities back to defensive add

    NHL

    There's only ten days left to the NHL trade deadline and the Pittsburgh Penguins are in wait and see mode.

    First and foremost, they need to see how the team responds to the big trade already made. They really haven't had Evgeni Malkin available much to fit in with Nick Bjugstad (1 goal, 1 assist as a Penguin in 7 games) and Jared McCann (3 goals, no assists).

    Will Bjugstad be their third line center? It seems like reports are true he's better served on the wing.

    ESPN.com: How Muggsy Bogues saved his brother's life, and found the meaning of his own

    NHL

    In the Muggsy Bogues family suite on Muggsy Bogues Night in Charlotte, North Carolina, last December, high-top tables are covered in Muggsy Bogues bobbleheads and chicken tenders, Muggsy Bogues' favorite stadium food.

    Muggsy Bogues is downstairs standing in a crowd near the corner of the hardwood, a few minutes away from a halftime ceremony in his honor at a game between the Hornets and Knicks at the Spectrum Center.

    NHL

    One of the best days of the year, the Penguins charity event night.

    Phil Kessel is always great in the caption game, and he's also looking like the guy she told you not to worry about.

    The Penguins defense, collectively, has been, uh, not good. Pucks are often finding their way past the pairings, but Matt Murray has been there to save the day. [Trib Live]

    Evgeni Malkin had some pretty choice words when speaking to the media about the scuffle with Michael Raffl.

    PensBurgh: Patric Hornqvist continues on offensive dry spell

    NHL

    Ever since returning from his second concussion this season, Patric Hornqvist has severely cooled off in on-ice production.

    His six points (three goals, three assists) in his last 20 games played appears as a huge stain, especially when you consider he hasn't made it onto the score sheet in any of his last 10 contests. His last point (an assist) dates all the way back to January 8 vs. Florida. At even-strength, Hornqvist has been a total ghost, failing to drive offense as a third and fourth-line winger on the Penguins' bottom-six.

    PensBurgh: Pens Points: Well-Oiled Machine

    NHL

    For the first time in a month, the Penguins won back-to-back games with a 3-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night. It was a comeback effort from the Pens who trailed 1-0 after the first period of play but battled back to score three unanswered goals. Bryan Rust notched his 16th goal of the season with a shorthanded tally then Teddy Blueger put home the eventual game winner less than four minutes later. Matt Murray put on another dazzling performance in goal, stopping 38 shots, including a Connor McDavid penalty shot with the Pens in front 2-1 in the second period.

    PensBurgh: Weekes: "Murray could put 10 pounds of muscle on that frame and become resilient to injury"

    NHL

    NHL broadcaster Kevin Weekes joined Episode 12 of the show and immediately dropped a bomb within the first minute of our interview with him after complimenting Matt Murray's stellar 50-save performance against the Flyers on Monday.

    "My biggest thing for Matt Murray now as he goes forward is that I want to see him make some gains off the ice," said Weekes. "I think he can put on 10 pounds of muscle on that frame and become a little bit more resilient to injury. He certainly has a lot of talent, he has the mentality having won two Stanley Cups already, and he's learned a lot from (Marc-Andre Fleury) as well.

    PensBurgh: The "What Ifs" with Sidney Crosby and Mario Lemieux

    NHL

    The Pittsburgh Penguins organization, and by extension its fans and city, have been kind of spoiled over the past 30 years in terms of on-ice success and the caliber of player that has played for the team.

    The five championships are tied for the second-most in the NHL in the post-Original Six era, and from 1984 on the Penguins have pretty much consistently had what is arguably the best player in the league (or at least a top-three player) playing on their team, from Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr, to Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

    PensBurgh: Pens Points: That Winning Feeling

    NHL

    Ending a losing streak against one of the hottest teams in hockey is nice. Ending a losing streak against one of the hottest teams in hockey who happens to be one of your biggest rivals is even better. With a 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night, the Penguins ended a four game losing streak while ending the Flyers 10 game point streak in the process. Sidney Crosby welcomed young Carter Hart to the league with his 40th career goal against the cross-state rivals while Matt Murray returned to the crease, stopping a career high 50 shots.

    My NHL Trade Rumors: NHL News: Habs-Kings Trade, Pens-Jackets Trade, Waivers and a Blackhawks Signing

    NHL

    The Los Angeles Kings trade forward Nate Thompson and 2019 5th round pick (Chicago) for a 2019 4th round pick (Calgary)

    Joey Alfieri: "#Habs trade away the fourth-rounder they got from the Flames, but they land the fifth-rounder the Kings got from Arizona. Canadiens have their own fourth and they now have three fifths (ARZ, CHI, EDM)"

    Jon Rosen: The Kings had acquired the 5th round pick from the Blackhawks for the rights to Dominik Kubalik.

    Some thoughts from the media

    Cap Friendly: "Montreal acquiring Thompson with 55 days left in the season, means the #Habs will only use $487,903 of their projected cap space as a result of today's trade.

    PensBurgh: Penguins vs. Oilers Recap: The Matt Murray Redemption tour rolls on. Pens down Edmonton 3-1

    NHL

    No Evgeni Malkin (suspension) or Olli Maatta (injury) makes for the returns of Teddy Blueger and Chad Ruhwedel from healthy scratch land. Zach Aston-Reese is also back from injury and bumps Dominik Simon (healthy).

    After a brief period of two out of conference teams feeling out the first few minutes, the Oilers strike on a counter-attack. Kris Letang steps up to lead a rush, which is fine. Tanner Pearson maybe loses the puck too easily, but really here you have to tip your cap to Edmtonton defenseman Oscar Klefbom.

    Pens Labyrinth: Pittsburgh Penguins Take Down Rival From Philly

    NHL

    The Pittsburgh Penguins knew that last night would bring a very grueling and difficult challenge. They were facing the Flyers, a team that had not lost a game in regulation time since January 12th. So to say that the Flyers were very confident heading into last night would be underplaying the facts. And the Penguins, just as they have done all season long, found a way to get the victory.

    Whenever you are facing a rival, the outcomes are always going to be at least a little bit unexpected, and that is what we had last night. For starters, Crosby put up three points, this coming after he has not been himself over the past couple of weeks.
