Updated: Pens 4087th M*A*S*H Unit and welcome to the new guys

Orpik, Kennedy and now Brent Johnson have reported to the 4087th while Letestu and Jeffrey rotated back to the real world. We may be getting Kunitz and Martin back soon as well. Beej is day-to-day. Best wishes go out to Clover the feline Pens fan.

Follow after the jump for a welcome to a couple of the newest Penguins.

Enjoying some Hockey Day in America. Looking forward to the 3:30pm start of the Pens-Hawks game. It will be nice to have Matt Cooke back out there, but we're still missing a few bodies.

Game Photos: Kings, Islanders and Rangers

Photos of games that are nearly a week old either age like fine wine or go stale like an old bag of Ruffles. You be the judge. Go beyond the jump to join Knitting Lady and me on our epic 3-game, 4-day, 4-state, 900-mile adventure.

Game Photos: 2/6/2011 Pens @ Caps

Not unlike Pascal Dupuis in the photo above, the Pens at times Sunday looked like they just wanted out of DC. Not that they weren't putting forth the effort, but the puck just wasn't bouncing their way. That will happen. Good thing about this month is, before you know it there will be another game, and a chance to put games like this behind you. More photos and a fight video after the jump.

Pittsburgh Penguins Greatest Games Vol. 2

Volume 2 of the Pittsburgh Penguins Greatest Games series is due to be released March 1. There are some real gems in here, such as game 1 of the 1992 Stanley Cup Final. I could have done without the 2008 Winter Classic since I've seen it so many times and it wasn't exactly a great hockey game, but who's complaining? They added the bonus sixth game so I'm happy. Anyway, we'll look forward to enjoying these discs during the off-season. I don't know who to thank for this so I'll just assume it's the Pens continuing to be the most fan-friendly franchise in the NHL!
