Daily source of Pittsburgh Penguins and NHL news and stories.

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning one and all,

The Pens are in Vancouver, where they face the Canucks and former pal Brandon Sutter. There aren't any big news at the moment but Seth Rorabaugh answered many questions in his Penguins chat. [PPG]

For his part, Sutter has adjusted to the change of scenery and found himself at home with the Canucks. [PPG]

The lack of organizational tribute to Phil Kessel during Saturday's game was one thing, and it was odd considering teams do it routinely. The fanbase booing their best player of the last 6 seasons added another dimension, and yesterday it was discussed on our cousin blog. [Pension Plan Puppets]

The Nucks beat the Flyers last night and rookie Jake Virtanen had himself his first NHL goal. [Vancouver Sun]

Mixed in with the latest NHL power rankings is a story of how Marc-Andre Fleury got his groove back. [Sporting News]

Here is all that transpired last night in the NHL. The Kings and Hawks was the best matchup, but somehow I ended up watching Reimer frustrate the Stars and their high-flying offense. [Sportsnet]

Ottawa's Mark Stone was suspended two days for an illegal check to the head of Detroit's Landon Ferraro. [NHL]

Bobby Farnham finds himself in the new surroundings and is definitely trying to make the most out of his next chance. In his first game as a Devil, he found himself missing one piece for the Gordie Howe hat trick, and interestingly that was a fight. He said Duper and Sid were among those to text their congrats.

An update on the most important growth of this hockey season, which is happening on Jagr's head. The mullet is coming along nicely, and thanks to Roberto Luongo on keeping us up to speed. [PHT]

By now probably all of you heard the sad news that ESPN pulled the plug on Grantland. It's a shame because good sports writers are an endangered species and Grantland gave many of them a great outlet. But the archive will still be there, and here's a look at some of their best stories. [Down Goes Brown]
