  1. Usually any NHL outdoor game creates a lot of anticipation for fans. The Winter Classics and the Stadium Series are an event almost every fan, regardless of what team you cheer for, take interest in. The one thing that piques the most curiosity on these games is always the grand, jersey reveal. There’s just one problem: The Flyers jersey was leaked. Not once, but twice. Also, the Penguins jersey was leaked along with the second time the Flyers jersey was leaked. Ouch! Someone was way too excited to show these off! The leaks soured any excitement fans had left about the official reveal. It was a bad kept secret. We got wind of these photos 4 days before the official unveiling and it was reported everywhere amongst Hockey focused Facebook pages and Instagram fan pages. It is clearly stated that these Stadium Series jerseys are supposed to resemble the “black and yellow construction signs” of Steel City to honour Pittsburgh’s history and all of those bright yellow bridges the city is famous for. What came out was an NFL colour rush jersey which is coincidentally similar to the Pittsburgh Steelers jersey they wore this season. The fade between the yellow and black along the detailed parts of the jersey is a nice touch to modernize the look. The “A Great Day For Hockey” punchline along the neckline is unoriginal for two reasons: 1) The font used for the lettering is the same as the letter font as the name lettering used for the 2017 Stadium Series jerseys. 2) The punchline itself is very generic and doesn’t pay tribute to anything connected with anything Pittsburgh specific at all. The Penguins would of made up for the blandness of the sweater by adding a patch honouring their back-to-back Stanley Cup championships during the 2016 and 2017 cup runs. That is missed opportunity because there isn’t knowing when the Pens will get another chance of participating in an outdoor game. Besides the differing shades of yellow and the striping, there isn’t much of difference between the Steelers Color Rush and Penguins Stadium Series jerseys. POSITIVES: The fade of the logo is a nice touch Modernization is apparent and distinguishable Letter kits are simple and match the jersey seamlessly CRITIQUES: Slanted yellow sleeves makes the overall pattern of the jersey awkward Punchline along neck is generic and cheesy Missed opportunity to utilize patch for back-to-back Stanley Cups (stripes along sleeves don’t count) Looks too much like the Steelers Color Rush jersey PHILADELPHIA FLYERS To go with the theme for the 2019 Stadium Series, the Flyers added a nice fade along the logo cutting out the white between the wing and orange dot in the middle of the logo. It’s clean and the orange and black were utilized the right way. The black name plate is a great touch to with the Flyer’s unique theme of adding offsetting name plates on most off their jersey designs. The black stripes along the sleeves are simple yet welcome feature about the jersey. The “Philly” signature along the neckline is used with an original font and it’s crisp. That feature might be used in future marketing efforts on how to effectively use it as a shoulder patch or along somewhere on the neck for a new jersey in the future. POSITIVES: Orange and black go well with modern twist on the jersey overall Black stripes along lower sleeve fit in nicely Fade along logo is clean Capitalized opportunity of the off-setting nameplate “Philly” along the neckline is a good touch CRITIQUES: A patch or punchline along the neck commemorating the “The City of Brotherly Love” would of been a great add-on since the Flyers are hosting.
  2. THE DEBATE – Hockey Podcast | Episode 41 Panic in Pittsburgh and Players Under the Radar Brad Burud and Blake Friars talk Pittsburgh Penguins. Should there be panic in the “Steel City” or is all the panic premature. The Penguins find themselves in last place and the hockey world is so not used to seeing that. Then its time to breakdown all the players off to hot starts that were not expected to be doing this well. What players are flying under the radar? Then it’s time to go around the horn and talk injuries, Buffalo Sabres, the “Battle of Alberta”, playoff projections, and a very heated and frustrating listener question. Yes, he is a rat! PODCAST
  3. The Instigator - Episode 19 - Malkin Hit on Oshie | Overreaction? When Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Evgeni Malkin drove his shoulder in to the head of Washington Capitals forward TJ Oshie the hockey world went crazy. Half of the people were screaming for a suspension and half thought the match penalty was outrageous. It was an interesting play and call. Brad Burud breaks down the hit and discusses his opinion on what the penalties or suspensions should have been. PODCAST
  4. The Pittsburgh Penguins have experienced a plethora of highs and lows since the tale of the club first began in 1967. The Penguins are a team of destiny. When they were down and ready to fold as a franchise, a superstar was there to save them. Mario Lemieux led the Penguins to back-to-back Stanley Cup victories in the early 1990’s after a miserable decade in the 1980’s. Same scenario played out in the early 2000’s when the franchise was playing terrible on the ice plus it was on the verge of bankruptcy. Sidney Crosby came into the league in 2005 to lead the Penguins to 10 consecutive years making the playoffs and that includes two Stanley Cup championships branded to the history books. Now that the Penguins are fifty years young and counting, here lies the history of the Penguins expressed through the form of their outdoor sweaters: Pittsburgh Penguins 2008 Winter Classic Worn on January 1st, 2008 in Ralph Wilson Stadium – Orchard Park, New York As part of the league’s first ever Winter Classic, the Penguins went back to their colour scheme from 1967 and quickly adopted the retro jerseys as alternates for the following season. These alternates were short lived as they only wore them in 10 games for the rest of the 2008-09 season and another 10 games in the 2009-10 season. They were retired shortly after. It’s hard to believe at first glance that the light blue base and Penguins logo would work well together but indeed it has. The blue is supposed to resemble ice overlapping the glare of water, the habitat of a penguin. The large white stripe coupled with the dark blue strips is an excellent complement to the light blue body of the jersey. The logo offers a great presentation of boldness to balance the mild colours on the rest of the jersey. The large white “Pittsburgh Penguins” letters shows a strong message on letting everyone else who they are when they are worn. The letters also adds a nice vintage feel to it. The yellow and black Penguins logo in the center of the circular crest adds a healthy contrast to the blue and white base of the sweater. Overall, this jersey is very well put together. Pittsburgh Penguins 2011 Winter Classic Worn on January 1st, 2011 in Heinz Field – Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Although most Winter Classic jerseys are supposed to replicate the jerseys worn in each team’s past, this particular sweater features different aspects multiple past jerseys from the Penguins franchise. While the jersey may look like a classic, the overall design is actually brand new but it’s still based from the team’s history – not a common theme for most Winter Classic jerseys. We once again go back to the late 1960’s for the inspiration of the design for this sweater. This jersey is a lot like the 2008 Winter Classic but vice-versa. The body of the sweater is navy blue which was used prominently by the Pens in the 1970’s. The bold, baby blue striping on the waist and wrist portions is a standout that was inspired by the very first Penguins jerseys with the diagonal “Pittsburgh” lettering in the inaugural year of 1967. Those jerseys were only worn for just one season. The unique, baby blue striping of the jersey was widely criticized because it didn’t look like it matched with the rest of the jersey but it was part of team history so why blow that detail out of proportion. The logo was an improvement from the 2008 Winter Classic as the circular base is now vintage white plus it’s coupled with retro-style “Pittsburgh Penguins” letters circling the penguin. That very same penguin logo that was used in 2008 now has a scarf and that detail was by far the best aspect about this jersey. The logo itself is also very large and it sticks out well to onlookers. The only criticism I have with this jersey is that the blue letters circling the penguins doesn’t standout, instead, it blends in to the navy blue body of the sweater a little too much. Overall, this is a nice jersey that has standout features but it was a little overdone. Pittsburgh Penguins 2014 Stadium Series Worn on March 1st, 2014 in Soldier Field – Chicago Illinois 2014 marks the first year of the Stadium Series outdoor games. Unlike the Winter Classic where historic elements are used for their main theme of the sweaters, the Stadium Series theme moves into a modern direction by trying out new designs and features that were never displayed before. For this jersey, the Penguins unveiled a jersey that still uses the same logo and colours, but in an entirely different layout. The black shoulder yokes are a welcome detail as well as the mid-size black and gold stripes along the waist and elbows portions of the sweater. The jersey features a chrome-treated Penguins logo design inspired from the chrome details of the NHL shield, a dynamic and modern look to conventional team identity. The numbering on the back of the jerseys is enlarged and sleeve numbers are angled to improve visibility in outdoor venues. The font on them looks really good too. Overall, this jersey looks better than their primary road whites they have used from 2007 to 2016 but the Pens really should of have tried to think ”outside-of-the-box” more with this one. The New York Islanders, Anaheim Ducks and L.A. Kings took a chance on some brand new concepts that turned out to be huge winners in their Stadium Series games so that left fans wanting more so that was a slight disappointment. Pittsburgh Penguins 2017 Stadium Series Worn onFebruary 25, 2017 in Heinz Field – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania This is probably the most standout outdoor NHL jersey that has ever been unveiled. There are so many features this jersey has that makes it unique and there is no other like it. This jersey is mean’t to look industrial because Pittsburgh is also known as “Steel City.” The captaincy patches have the gold triangle around it and that golden triangle is normally behind the logo but instead they have it integrated with the “A” and “C” captaincy patches. The most attention-grabbing feature is the giant patch on the left sleeve touting “City of Champions” in big silver letters. This is the largest secondary patch that was ever featured on a NHL jersey. Inside the patch there are four gold stars, marking the Penguins’ Stanley Cup championships, with crossed hockey sticks all inside a keystone shape — for the Keystone State. The overall body of the jersey is representative of the first alternate jersey ever used in the NHL and that honour belonged to the Penguins. Those jerseys were worn between 1982 to 1985.

  5. Tonight at the FN Center the Buffalo Sabres will honor their fans. We deserve a lot of praise for putting up with the horrible start and constant stress that comes with a playoff push. Some of the things that will occur tonight include the "Shirt off our Back" Promotion, where at the end of the game, 20 lucky fans will be randomly selected to receive the game worn jerseys of all the Sabres dressed. Also a 50/50 raffle with a minimum prize of 25K (or you could $640 million with the mega millions). The Sabres will also give you the fanciest noise makers I have ever seen, they are blue and gold with the words "Lets Go Sabres", should be super annoying to anyone over 9 in attendance. However should make for one heck of a dual outside the arena after the game. Other prizes will be given away tonight and the much loved "Party in the Plaza" is back tonight. Two huge screens outside for fans without tickets to enjoy the game. Now onto the Sabres opponent tonight the Pittsburgh Penguins enter on a two game losing streak, after losing a home and home to the Islanders. Buffalo leads the season series 2-1 with crazy games. A 2-1 Jhonas Enroth win on the 4th night of the season, a 8-4 beating by the Pens in Pittsburgh, and a 6-2 beat down by Buffalo just last month. The Pens will be without Ben Lovejoy and Kris Letang tonight, they are also giving the fans a prize by putting Brent Johnson between the pipes. However you got to feel the Pens will come hard tonight they are fighting for home ice with the Flyers in that nasty 4-5 matchup. The Pens are pretty much out of the division title race with the current slide. Sidney Crosby took a puck to the face last night and after the NHL was deciding whether or not to cancel the season, Crosby did return and only has a busted up nose. On the injury front for Buffalo Christian Ehrhoff will miss tonights game and probably the remaining four after tonight. Mike Weber will step in and will need to play well. The Sabres D will get a full blast of offense tonight. Nathan Gerbe is still not 100% and will not play tonight. Crazy PK36 will play tonight after blocking a shot with his broken thumb Tuesday. Yes his thumb was broken before the game and he still went all out and blocked a puck on purpose with said hand and thumb. Dedication. Andrej Sekera also good to go after blocking a shot from Ovechkin. Miller in goal of course. Red hot, he will need to be on his game tonight. My hatred for the Bruins grew last night a little more with their 3-2 shootout loss to Washington. The game was boring and the Caps had a commanding 2-0 lead late in the 3rd. However Boston teased Buffalo fans by scoring two goals in the final three minutes to send it to extra time. Only to lose in a break away contest, in which they were only a Tim Thomas save on Alex Semin away from a W. Thanks Boston. Two big points on the line tonight and with two games with the train wreck Maple Leafs coming up soon, the Sabres can try to distance themselves from the Caps. Let the playoff hockey continue. Projected Lineup: Foligno-Ennis-Stafford Vanek-Hodgson-Tropp Leino-Roy-Pominville Kaleta-Boyes-McCormick Myers-Leopold Regehr-Sekera Weber-Sulzer Miller (Enroth)
  6. *taken from NHL.com* In the midst of his best NHL season, things just got a little bit better for Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal. Neal, who scored his 30th goal of the season in Saturday's 6-4 win against the Philadelphia Flyers, signed a six-year, $30 million contract extension on Sunday that binds him to the team through the 2017-18 season. "I love everything about what goes on here and how we play the game," Neal told the team's website. "I just couldn't see myself anywhere else." Neal could have been a restricted free agent July 1. "As we've gotten to know Neal over past year, he really fits with our group," Penguins General Manager Ray Shero told the team's website. "It's really difficult to find players like this. Neal has size, uncanny release, heavy shot, goes to the net hard, can skate. There's a lot to like even beyond the 30 goals." Playing on Evgeni Malkin's left wing for most of the season, Neal is tied for third in the League in goals heading into Sunday's game in Buffalo (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC), and he's tied for the League lead with 13 power-play goals. He's also leads the League in shots on goals (242), has set career-highs in goals and points (56), and played in his first NHL All-Star Game. Acquired by the Penguins from the Dallas Stars last Feb. 21, Neal had just one goal in 20 games with the Pens, and one goal in seven playoff games as the Penguins were eliminated in the first round by the Tampa Bay Lightning. The 6-foot-2, 208-pound left wing has 103 goals and 90 assists in 292 games with the Stars and Penguins. He's scored at least 20 goals in all four of his NHL seasons.
