Don’t look now, but the Pens have won 3 straight and actually beat a division rival.

Okay, you can look now.

With last nights 2 points, the Penguins now sit 3 points back of the pace being set by the Islanders with a game in hand.  They’re 3rd in the division as well.  More importantly, after a little stretch of bad luck for the big guns, Crosby (1G) and Malkin (3A) seem to really be hitting their strides.  The pucks are starting to go in and last night makes it 13 goals in the last 3 games.

Everything looks like it’s finally starting to click again and that does not bode well for the rest of the league.

We’ll have a bit of a scouting report and some information on Winnik as this unfolds.

The Leafs are reportedly retaining 50% of Winnik’s $1.3 MegaDillyBar salary.

The Penguins will look to avoid the sweep and take some points out as they close out their up-and-down month of February.

REPORT: Sidney Crosby Does NOT Age

Yesterday, an article was published on Internet dot com claiming that as the years, months, days, minutes, seconds, and even nanoseconds pass by us during the Sun’s revolution around Planet Earth, Sidney Crosby has aged in direct relation to aforementioned units of time.

Amid this article, we decided to do some research of our own last night as well as utilizing the Penguins Sauce Laboratory to test this theory.  The results were staggering.

In short, using traditional Eastern Science and Medicine, we determined that this claim of Sidney Crosby getting older is in fact, 100% unsubstantiated and flat out false.
