"Obviously, you never expect to get grabbed by the guy and get punched like that," Talbot said Saturday. "I don't think I'm a guy that would stand down if someone comes to my face and asks me." "Ten games is pretty long, especially when we're in a tough spot right now with a lot of guys out of the lineup," Godard told The Associated Press. "Yes, I regret it, but no, I am going to try to defend my teammates. I am kind of torn with that."

Wallace, a recent recall from the AHL, going at Steckel instead of bruisers such as Engelland, Godard or even forward Mike Rupp, seemed somewhat odd. A popular theory among those around the Penguins daily held that injuries to Rupp and Godard prevented them from challenging Steckel. "Nope," Rupp said. "It takes two guys, and (Steckel) just didn't want to fight."

A Quick Look : 2010-2011 Pens & 2008-2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pens

The 2010-2011 Penguins look like one of the best Penguins teams ever assembled.  Currently in the NHL we are 2nd in the league in GA/G at 2.21, 7th in the league in G/G at 3.02, 1st in the league...

Caps’ Steckel can’t duck Crosby hit

I found this quote the most interesting... It has been almost three weeks since Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby curled into Washington Capitals center David Steckel, smacking his head into Steckel’s right shoulder.

Weather threatens puck-drop : Game moved back to 8:00 PM

Unseasonal temperatures in Pittsburgh may force the NHL to push its start time on the New Year's Day Winter Classic back to 7 p.m. ET, sources told Sportsnet. The annual outdoor game is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. ET, but temperatures creeping in to double-digits Friday have officials concerned that the ice surface will not be safe for play. The issue of 60,000-plus spectators showing up early may force the league to make a decision as soon as Friday evening. In a news conference Thursday, John Collins, the NHL's chief operating officer, said the league's priority remains to have the game begin at the planned 1 p.m. start time on Saturday, with an option to delay the contest until as late as 8 p.m. "We're planning to play at 1 o'clock," Collins said. "We've got maximum flexibility to do what we need to do to get that game in on Saturday. If for some reason it was completely unplayable, we have other options. But we fully expect to get the game in on Saturday." /update The game has been moved back to 8:00PM Pittsburgh time.

Statistical Analysis: Do the refs favor the Pittsburgh Penguins?

+

Wrap up from the article "Two-thirds of the season looms ahead and the sample from which to draw conclusions is small. The current data set lacks a "smoking gun" that would definitively support claims of referee favoritism, especially in the latter half of the games studied, wherein the Penguins were penalized equally to or more than the competition for three-quarters of the stretch. If any conclusion negative to the officiating could be drawn, it is this: The Penguins were given the benefit of the doubt to open the season, but that advantage (and a largely unfruitful advantage at that) eroded as the season developed. However, even that conclusion is a difficult one to credibly draw, as several other explanations may be possible (i.e. the Penguins played a less physical game to open the season, so were less penalized but ultimately less successful / the Penguins started the year with more seasoned players but began inserting rookies and otherwise inexperienced players, due to injury, as the season progressed, etc.). I'm curious to find out what the numbers say to you, the hockey fans, and what other arguments you'd make for either side."

"Top KHL squad Avangard managed to finish their home game against league underdogs Vityaz, 3-2, despite a mass brawl. The incident occurred almost immediately after face-off. The Vityaz players went on the offensive after only six seconds of play. Avangard's management says the brawl was a pre-planned act against their team. They have demanded that Vityaz be excluded from the KHL, and also want a lifetime disqualification for the club's management. In January 2010, a similar brawl occurred during the clubs' meeting in the Moscow region. Back then, the game was suspended, while Vityaz were considered to have struck the first blow, but avoided serious sanction from the KHL."

Playing with Crosby and Malkin... it's not as easy as you think

Presumptions aren’t always accurate in the NHL. A relatable example with the Penguins is the conventional opinion that playing alongside centers Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin should be easy.
