Penguins Lose Fehr to Lower-Body Injury

00ppfront Eric Fehr could miss at least a month with a lower-body injury, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan revealed today. The big forward’s legs folded awkwardly beneath him after he was checked by Senators defenseman Mark Borowiecki during the second period of Tuesday’s victory over Ottawa. He exited the ice in visible pain and had to be help [...]

Baby Penguins Update: January 31, 2016

00ppfront Including games played through the All-Star break, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Baby Pens lead the AHL Atlantic Division with a 29-13-2 record and 60 points (third overall). They’ve scored 144 goals (fourth most in the league) and allowed the third fewest (102). Following a red-hot start, the Baby Pens have cooled a bit (8-8-1) under new coach C [...]

Penguins Update: Looking Ahead

pp0575 “I believe that we will make the playoffs.” With a singular forceful statement, All-Star center Evgeni Malkin reflected the growing sense of optimism over the fortunes of our Pittsburgh Penguins. Almost overnight, it seems, they’ve transformed from a crew of rag-tag underachievers struggling to keep pace in the Eastern Conference playoff chas [...]

Penguins Update: Hagelin, Daley Provide a Spark

pp0574 It isn’t the easiest thing to do. Improving a team through trades. Indeed, there’s a certain hit-or-miss quality about the process that comes with the turf. Kind of like panning for gold nuggets in a partially played-out stream, hoping to strike it rich. Especially if your counterpart senses you’re itching to make a deal. Overplay your hand a [...]

Ex-Penguins Update: January 23, 2016

pp0573 Here’s a look at how former Penguins have performed thus far in 2015-16. Stats reflect games played through Friday, January 22. Lee Stempniak tops the list in points (34) and assists (22). James Neal leads the ex-Pens with 17 goals. Ageless wonder Jaromir Jagr has 15 goals and 32 points. Fellow future Hall-of-Famer Jarome Iginla has 13 goals [...]

Penguins Impress With 4-3 Win Over Flyers

pp0572 Speed kills. Penguins’ play-by-play announcer Paul Steigerwald bellowed that time-honored line after watching Phil Kessel and Carl Hagelin torch the Flyers on a two-on-one during the third period of last night’s scintillating 4-3 Penguins victory at the Consol. Philly forward and noted Penguin killer Jakub Voracek seconded the notion. “They’r [...]

Penguins Dynamic Duo

pp0571 There’ve been two distinct sets of Sidney Crosbys and Kris Letangs skating for the Pittsburgh Penguins this season. The initial pair languished under previous coach Mike Johnston, combining for a paltry seven goals during the Pens’ first 28 games. Since Mike Sullivan took over? It’s as if Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson popped into t [...]

Penguins Rutherford Evokes Memories of Bastien

00ppfront As I was thinking about yesterday’s trade and how it might affect our Penguins—artistically and financially—it brought to mind a general manager from the past. His name was Aldege “Baz” Bastien. Like present-day GM Jim Rutherford he, too, was a former goalie who had once backstopped a Steel City hockey team. In Baz’s case, the old Pittsburgh [...]

Penguins Get Hagelin from Ducks for Perron, Clendening

00ppfront The Pittsburgh Penguins have a new left wing. Burning the midnight oil in the wake of last night’s 5-4 overtime loss to Tampa Bay, general manager Jim Rutherford swapped underachieving forward David Perron and spare defenseman Adam Clendening to Anaheim for left wing Carl Hagelin. Impetus for the deal? Struggling offenses and disappointing ov [...]

Penguins Hornqvist Keeps Bangin’

!504209824_slide As our Penguins enter the second half on the outside of the Eastern Conference playoff picture looking in, it’s safe to say the season hasn’t gone as planned. Dreams of an offensive dynamo were dashed early on as a squad built to score goals struggled to produce under former coach Mike Johnston. Stars like Sidney Crosby experienced epic droug [...]
