Mackey: Just making sure

So let me get this straight. The Penguins outhit the Kings, were the more responsible team, and Evgeni Malkin nearly fought Justin Williams? OK, just making sure. Seriously, though, that happened. Hits went 33-32 in the Penguins’ favor. Malkin did …

Pregame: Penguins vs. Kings, 7 p.m.

There’s probably one line in the NHL better than the Penguins’ grouping of Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby and Patric Hornqvist, and it will take the ice tonight at Consol Energy Center. Tyler Toffoli, Jeff Carter and Tanner Pearson have combined …

Defenseman Kris Letang can understand Olli Maatta’s diagnosis and impending surgery probably as well as, if not better than, anyone.

Postgame: More from the Pens’ 8-3 rout

Tuesday’s 8-3 win over the New Jersey Devils made little sense. There was Craig Adams, out of the penalty box, scoring on a breakaway. And the Penguins hanging eight on the defense-first Devils, seven of them unanswered. Also the local …

Pregame: Penguins vs. Devils, 7 p.m.

The Devils look like the Penguins a mere 11 days ago: The power play’s fantastic, but the penalty kill is a mess. New Jersey is second in the league behind the Penguins with the man-advantage, while they’re dead last down …

Postgame: Some thoughts from Joe Louis

DETROIT – Can you start practice two-thirds of the way through? Might not be the worst idea given the Penguins’ recent struggles late in games. First Dallas, now Thursday’s 4-3 loss at Detroit. Which was worse? I’m taking this one. …

Pregame: Penguins at Red Wings, 7:30 p.m.

Of all days where a practice would probably do some good. The Penguins had problems last night during a 5-3 loss to the Flyers at Consol Energy Center. In the neutral zone. Defensive breakdowns. On the power play. Plenty of …

Pregame: Penguins vs. Flyers, 8 p.m.

Mike Johnston has heard things. About the intensity of the Penguins-Flyers rivalry. The physicality, too. About the excitement and buildup for it. “I’ve heard a lot and watched it from afar,” the Penguins’ first-year coach said. “Certainly the playoff series’ …

Mackey: Q&A with Steve Downie

When Steve Downie talks, you listen. Or at least I do. Downie talked today and addressed crushing Frans Nielsen at the end of Saturday’s game against the Islanders, as well as the upcoming Flyers game, his first in the series …

Mackey: Harrington, too early for trends and the PK

What to make of defenseman Scott Harrington being sent to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey league? No clue. Was a bit of a surprise, I’ll admit. I was told – and had fairly strong reason to believe – that management …
