Pittsburgh vs Tampa Bay: Keys to the Matchup

Pittsburgh:

  • Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin being out gives other players a chance to step up. Guys like Jordan Staal and….
  • Limit the lethal Lightning power play by refusing to put a player in the box after being penalized
  • Kick a soccer ball around before the game because that seems like the cool thing to do these days
  • You don’t wanna rush Sidney Crosby into playing if he’s not 100% healthy, but if he’s 30% healthy then I guess thats close enough

Tampa Bay:

  • Keep Steven Stamkos out of the Florida sun, he doesn’t look like he would tan well
  • Guy Boucher might be a rookie head coach in the NHL, but he is very good at telling which players to go on the ice
  • Is it really that big of a deal if Tampa tries to put two goalies in at once?
  • Martin St. Louis seems to do just fine using a stick that is too long for him. The other players should stop being babies and try it too.

Matt Cooke Mad That He Is Still Yet To Kill Someone

Cooke hopes that this picture can ring true in the near future

Following Sunday’s loss to the New York Rangers, Pens forward Matt Cooke expressed his disappointment that he still hasn’t been able to kill an opposing player on the ice. Cooke, who was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for elbowing Rangers rookie defenseman Ryan McDonagh in the head, said he doesn’t know what he has to do in order to kill a human being during a hockey game. “It is starting to get really frusturating,” said Cooke. “I mean, I’ve tried everything I can possibly think of and every time the guy pops up and is able to play again.  Continue reading

The defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins find themselves in an unexpected elimination game tonight when they host the Montreal Canadiens in game 7 of their Eastern Conference semi-final series.

Following their defeat in game 6 at the Bell Centre, Pittsburgh players admitted that now that the series is going seven games they might just have to start taking the opposition seriously.

Partying Pittsburgh Penguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins are off to a 12-3-0 start, and are ripping through the NHL’s Eastern Conference.  This comes despite a slow start for captain Sidney Crosby (by his elite standards) and an injury to superstar centre Evgeni Malkin. What’s keeping the Pens so loose and on top of their game? I believe we’ve found the answer here at DKM, and it’s their remarkable team chemistry.  This team of young guns is growing up together. We got a recent look at their interactions after a recent team practice.

Sidney Crosby: Whew, good job so far boys.  If we keep working hard and improving every day, we’ll be drinking from that cup again in no time.

(Sid gets bowled over by a large shape)
