The gleaming, glass-fronted Consol Energy Center is the house that Mario Lemieux built, a testament to his indomitable will during his Hall of Fame career and, later, in saving the Penguins from ruin and relocation by becoming their owner. Lemieux made the arena happen but it was constructed as a palace for Sidney Crosby, the next savior of hockey in Pittsburgh and the NHL's favorite face. Where Lemieux was regal and distant Crosby is built on a human scale, not quite six feet tall, polite and approachable.

Chris Conner, recalled from the minor leagues earlier in the day, scored two goals and the Pittsburgh Penguins scored twice one minute apart in the third period to beat the slumping New York Rangers, 4-2, on Monday night. After Artem Anisimov gave the Rangers their only lead 9:15 into the third with his second goal of the game, Evgeni Malkin got Pittsburgh even at 9:46 -- 16 seconds into a power play. Conner then fired in a rebound of Sidney Crosby's shot one minute later to put the Penguins back in front.

Now that the Detroit Red Wings have wrapped their octopus tentacles around the Stanley Cup, don't expect the 11-time champions to let it go anytime soon. Marian Hossa and the Pittsburgh Penguins gave it their best shot last spring before falling short in the finals. Hossa saw the writing on the wall, and didn't care about extra zeros on his check, so he jumped from the Steel City to Hockeytown. "He loves winning and he believes that that's the team that can do it for him," former Penguins teammate Jordan Staal said.

The Pittsburgh Penguins had enough of history repeating itself. Meeting the Detroit Red Wings in the Stanley Cup finals for the second year in a row, the Penguins had lost the first two games on the road before winning Game 3 at Mellon Arena -- just like last year. Consider history rewritten as instead of falling in Game 4 the way they did a year ago, the Penguins beat the Red Wings, 4-2. on Thursday night to even the best-of-seven series at 2-2. Game 5 will be Saturday night at Joe Louis Arena.

Pascal Dupuis scored his second goal of the game 1:24 into overtime and the Pittsburgh Penguins welcomed back forward Evgeni Malkin by ending their four-game losing streak with a 6-5 win against the Boston Bruins on Saturday night. Malkin, the reigning NHL scoring champion, had three assists in his return to the lineup after he missed seven games because of a shoulder injury. Dupuis scored when goalie Tim Thomas mistakenly left a puck along the boards. Pittsburgh's Jordan Staal picked it up and fed it to Dupuis, who tucked in his 100th NHL goal and fifth this season.

Jordan Staal scored twice and Sidney Crosby's goal and assist early in the first period amid a succession of fights lifted the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 6-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night in a feisty renewal of an intensifying rivalry. Crosby scored a power-play goal 3 minutes 30 seconds in -- and before a flurry of three fights in 16 seconds -- and set up Bill Guerin's goal about 2 1/2 minutes later, immediately after the first round of pushing, shoving and punching.
