It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's The Penguins?

Don't look now, but the Pittsburgh Penguins are on a roll, and looking quite dangerous. Crosby had a six point night, while Gonchar broke out notching five points, as the Penguins doubled up the Flyers 8-4. If there was one positive for the Flyers, it's that Kyle Calder finally scored his first goal of the season. Rumour has the Blackhawks interested in bringing him back, but the Flyers are really hoping the kid finds his groove and can produce for them.

As you will notice on the main page, Crosby now takes over the league lead in points with 47, three ahead of second place Jagr. Staal also pulled into first place on the shorthanded goals list with four. The one surprise of the night? Pittsburgh scores eight goals, and Malkin doesn't get a point. Things are starting to click for the Penguins, they're an exciting team to watch.

I'd like to welcome our newest writer, Marc Valeri, to the team. He has a great article that I just posted on in the articles section on the main page, looking at who he calls: the reddest of the wings. Want to know who that is? Check it out, it's a great read.

Also, I'd like to announce that we now have an OHL specialist writing for Hockeyleaks. TJ Hurst will debut soon here, and you can expect articles quite often from him, involving the OHL.

We'd love to add to our writing roster, so email me at if your interested.

Other things to look forward to on in the coming week or so is a brand new Q & A session with someone well known in the online hockey rumour world, as well as the return of the power rankings (expect those tomorrow night!). Check for all the latest information, as it will be updated much more often than the blog, usually two or three times daily, as things happen.

A rumour before I pack it in for the night: Philly is in heavy talks with Boston, with the Flyers very interested in one of Boston's defenseman. I'll keep you posted if I learn more. Also heard one about the Canucks looking to dump some salary, before the pull off a bigger move. Stay Tuned
