The Slumping Pittsburgh Penguins

from Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

After the Penguins’ 4-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center — their sixth in seven games following that terrific Canadian road trip — Malkin preached, above all else, togetherness.

“We understand we’re a great team,” Malkin said. “We need to be shoulder-to-shoulder with each other. We go back home. We have a couple practices. We just have to keep working.”

Malkin has a point.

The Penguins did not lose to the Devils because they’re an inferior team. Far from it. They also did not lose to the Devils because they failed to turn in the proper amount of effort. They did, although the consistency could use some work.

The Penguins have scored 9 goals in their past six losses.

Sportsbook Comes To The Prudential Center

from Kirstie Chiappelli at the Sporting News,

The Devils are the latest NHL franchise to partner with a major sportsbook.

Las Vegas-based sportsbook William Hill US has signed a sponsorship deal with the New Jersey club after partnering with the Golden Knights last month, ESPN reported.

As part of the agreement, Prudential Center will open a lounge area with TVs and odds boards that has all the appeal of a sportsbook without windows and kiosk. Instead, William Hill US CEO Joe Asher revealed company ambassadors will assist bettors in downloading their betting app.

The Edmonton Oilers Started The Season With A Thud

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

The Edmonton Oilers proved last season that you can have the Art Ross Trophy winner, yet still miss the playoffs by a mile. This season is about the other 19 players having fans walking out of the rink talking about them more often, rather than the conversation always centring on Connor McDavid.

Well, one game in, the evidence was clear: Edmonton simply did not have enough puck possession when McDavid wasn’t on the ice. McDavid was a force, but the rest of the troops? For most of them, not enough on this night.

For a team that has harped all September on “having a strong start,” Saturday’s season-opening 5-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils in Gothenburg was terribly disappointing. Not just because of the loss, but because of the number of passengers wearing Oilers whites on a Swedish Saturday night.

Brian Boyle Feeling “Normal Again”

from Matt Porter of the Boston Globe,

“Obviously I feel a hell of a lot better than I did last summer,” he said.

A year ago, his workouts were half-speed, half-enthusiasm. By August, he was struggling to get out of bed. Training-camp tests revealed chronic myeloid leukemia, a form of blood and bone cancer. Doctors treated it with medicine, rather than chemotherapy. He missed training camp and returned Nov. 1 to continue writing his inspirational story....

All the while, as he and his wife Lauren revealed in December, their 2-year-old son Declan was being treated for an arteriorvenous malformation in his jaw, a condition that causes pressure and pain and necessitated several surgeries. Doctors originally believed he had Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of aggressive cancer. It was a scary time for the Boyles.

Declan’s condition is under control. Boyle has had no remission. “Two weeks on medicine and I was fine again,” he said. “Been fine ever since.” Life feels normal again. He works out in Foxboro and returns home to spend time with Declan, 3, and Isabella, 1.

At 33, the 12-year veteran has one year left on his contract. Boyle has between 13 and 15 goals in each of the last five years. Tucking closer to 20 would ensure a comfortable deal.

“I’d like to play as long as I can,” he said.
