Crosby cleared for light workouts

Penguins fans rejoiced Friday at the news that Sidney Crosby, sidelined following a concussion suffered early this month, has been cleared to resume light workouts.

This got me wondering what kind of activities Sid might be engaged in as he prepares for his return to the ice...

See what else Sid may be up to after the jump.

Game Photos: Pens vs Canes 1/22/2011

The Pittsburgh Penguins took on the Carolina Hurricanes Saturday night at Consol Energy Center. The Pens were trying to prove they could win without a couple of their top guns. Going back to the third period of the Winter Classic, and including the game against the Wild two weekends ago, Knitting Lady and I had seen the Pens fail to score through four straight periods. We just wanted to see the boys in black and gold blue tickle the twine once or twice. Well, we got more than that, and though the Canes made things interesting in the final minutes, the home team came away with the 3-2 win. Check out our photos and video from the game after the jump.

Game Photos: 1/8/11 Pens vs Wild

Contrary to popular opinion, the Pens did play a game Saturday night.  Unfortunately that game was against the Minnesota Wild, whose style of play is somewhat contrary to what their name might suggest.  When the schedule first came out and I saw that the Pens only had six Saturday home games, and one of them was against Minnesota, I knew it wouldn't be pretty but I also knew that we'd be there.  Check out our photos after the jump.

Winter Classic

The NHL threw a huge New Year's Day party in Pittsburgh. The Caps tried to spoil the fun with their 3-1 victory in the team's first Winter Classic appearance. They played well, the Pens not so much, but it didn't ruin an otherwise fun weekend of hockey in the great outdoors.
