When Sidney Crosby became the youngest captain ever to hoist hockey’s Holy Grail in June of 2009, the only problem facing the Penguins seemed to be a lack of available space in the trophy case.

How many Stanley Cups will Crosby’s Penguins pile up? Is this the NHL’s next dynasty? These were legitimate questions pondered by hockey pundits.

The NHL salary cap is rumored to be as high as $71 million in 2014-15, which could be a major factor in how the Penguins approach the offseason.

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist made 35 saves as the Rangers beat the Penguins 2-1 in Game 7, capping their rally from a 3-1 series deficit and ousting the Penguins from the playoffs.

Despite a raucous home crowd, despite outshooting their opponents 36-20, despite 38-30 edge in faceoffs – another Penguins season ended on a disappointing note.

The salary cap era in the NHL means that every team has to change personnel every season. With several unrestricted free agents on the docket this summer—and the possibility of even greater turnover than the team has seen in some time—many eyes are turned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to produce next years’ Penguins.

If there’s one position where the Penguins continue to have quality organizational depth, it’s defense.

The Rangers scored two first-period goals and Henrik Lundqvist stoned the Penguins as New York forced a Game 7 with a 3-1 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday night at Madison Square Garden.

Those who claim momentum doesn't carry over from game-to-game in the Stanley Cup Playoffs--and that's a pretty large club--must have missed the opening 10 minutes of Game 6 of the Eastern...

Friday night New York looked like they were playing for their playoff lives. A dominating two-goal first period followed by an impressive second frame counter attack was good enough to send the teams back to the Big Apple on Sunday. Derick Brassard scored a pair of goals and Henrik Lundqvist denied 31 shots for a 5-1 Blueshirts win.

Marc-Andre Fleury faced a flurry of shots over the game's first twenty minutes.
