Zamboni Hits Player?!?!

Well not quite.  During a recent Penguins game the Zamboni developed a fluid leak that made the ice surface look like a horror film.  I am sure it brought back memories of the Richard Zednik throat cut incident or a scene from the oscar winner There Will be Blood.

They had to scrape the ice and then use the other Zamboni to re-flood the ice , quite the time consuming process. 

Luckily it wasn’t Hossa, Malkin or Crosby. 


Better Without Crosby?

Since losing all-star forward Sidney Crosby the Pittsburgh Penguins have gone on a tear thanks to Russian sniper Evgeni Malkin.  After losing their captain to a high ankle sprain Jan 21 the Pens have gone 5-4-1, although they have lost their last two games in close contests. 

Malkin has been on fire with 7 goals and 12 assists in the 10 game stretch. 

 If they keep this up who needs Sid the Kid?  Maybe they do but they are no slouch without him.
