Pens have totally new medical staff with affiliation with U of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Head physician C. Harner, pres of American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine and he or 1 of 2 other specialists will travel to all Pit road games. Only Chi. does this. Interesting thing is the Drs. don't get paid. In NFL medical teams pay to be affiliated with teams.

Just a point on interest. Info (except NFL stuff) from today's Globe and Mail.

The Pittsburgh Penguins may once again be in danger of losing a marquee player due to a concussion. According to Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Evgeni Malkin is suffering from "severe headache and mild disorientation" after sliding hard into the boards during Friday's win over the Florida Panthers. He has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Full Story.

Alright!

Vokoun hasn't been very good since leaving Florida. i think it has something with the way they used him. He played a lot of games in Florida. In Washington he shared crease duties with the youngins. He's been pretty bad for the Pens this season.

This'll be a real test for our boys, we talked about depth this season... This will be a chance to test the depth of the team against one of the leagues tops.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have reportedly acquired defenceman Douglas Murray from the San Jose Sharks, according to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com.

From the Globe and Mail:

Kris Letang’s comeback didn’t last long.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have placed their star defenceman back on injured reserve with a lower body injury and recalled rookie Simon Despres from the AHL.

Letang returned from the IR on Tuesday night after missing three games due to the injury. He appeared in some discomfort following his first shift but played more than 24 minutes in a 1-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens

Further,,,,from TSN:

The streaking Pittsburgh Penguins could get Evgeni Malkin back soon but could lose Kris Letang again.

Malkin who was placed on injured reserve Sunday, retroactive to March 10, with an upper body injury, is expected to be back in the lineup soon.

However, defenceman Kris Letang has suffered a broken toe, and was placed on the injured reserve Wednesday.

Letang was placed on injured reserve on Monday but activated in time for Tuesday's game against the Montreal Canadiens, prompting the demotion of defenceman Simon Depres.

With Letang being placed back on injured reserve, Depres has been called back up.

Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, meanwhile, is battling a sore neck. Details should emerge later on Wednesday whether or not the injury will force him to miss any time.

Letang: Hmmm .... broken toe. Is that 'new', or was it a broken toe before?

It looked groin to me before. Maybe it was toe all along.

A new injury makes more sense to me than the same one ... Pens did not need to be rushing Letang back in the way they were going, and the standings place they were in.

Fleury -- well, "sore neck" made me think immediately of Reimer (oops, Gionta was around for that one too, wasn't he?). Reimer's was a "sore neck" until it was a multi-week concussion.

Morrow: I expect he gets better than he showed last night against the Habs (I didn't notice him at all; and he had 0 shots on goal). I understand that's the way he has shown in Dallas this season too.

Murray: going to Pitt, I'm not concerned overly about. "Big and slow" are the defensemen the Habs forwards are having the most success against.

Crosby: Huh. That's why he's called the best player in the world. One play, and he wins the game (well, yes, Fleury/Vokoun were great too.)

I am very very interested to see how Pittsburg does in the playoffs now. They were strong already (obviously, based on the win streak) but they just keep getting scarier on paper. I still think they are beatable (their defense and goaltending, while decent, are nowhere near as good as their offense).

When I look at their team, the way the season has gone & the way the analysts are talking about them, I cant help but think back to 1993. The pens were the undisputed best team in the league in the regular season. They had the best player in the world at that time as well as 2nd and 3rd liners that would be 1st on most other teams in the league. They had a decent defense and goaltending - but up front they were unparalleled. They had FOUR players break the 100 point mark. They set an NHL record (still holds today) winning streak of 17 games.

Every single analyst that year had the Pens in the finals. They were, as a young Bob McKenzie said "As close to unbeatable as a team can be."


Someone remind me who won that year? :)

Could be that they are peaking at the wrong time.

Oh,,,and we won the Cup that year. :P
