Sidney Crosby clapped back, Kris Letang weighed in on home-ice advantage, and Malkin was thinking about Magnitogorsk. All that and more in today’s Pens Points!

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins at Winnipeg Jets Terrence Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Winnipeg Jets will meet tonight at PPG Paints Arena, with the Pens looking to continue their red-hot streak of play. Before the Pens try to cool the Jets...

Here are your Pens Points for this Friday morning...

Sidney Crosby takes A LOT of flak for being the league’s poster boy. Criticism and all, Crosby deflects pretty much all of it with class. Except for his most recent interaction with an opposing fan. Sid was so impressed with the chirps, he even gave the fan a signed stick.[Pensburgh]

Speaking of Crosby, it’s pretty remarkable how consistent Crosby’s level of play has been now at the midway point of the season. [Pensburgh]

With the “fan voting” aspect of the NHL All-Star Game yet to be determined, we’re asking the question of whether or not Penguins fans should be voting for Kris Letang. [Pensburgh]

During the last game against the Rangers, Evgeni Malkin was thinking of his hometown of Magnitogorsk, after the city was the center of attention due to an apartment building partially exploding and collapsing. [Pensburgh]

Kris Letang thinks home-ice advantage doesn’t carry as much weight as it used to. [Trib Live]

There’s a case to be made for Sidney Crosby to be the eventual recipient of the Selke Trophy. [Post-Gazette]

News and notes from around the league...

An unorthodox, but fun topic: the ten heaviest goal songs in the NHL. [Kerrang!]

Spanish NHL announcers are creating their own language for the complex terminology of the game they love. [ESPN]
