Penguins Update: I Was Wrrrr…

00ppfront For those of us ancient enough to remember the TV show Happy Days, it was a classic episode. The one where Fonzie tried to admit he was wrong to Ralph Malph, but couldn’t get the words out. “I was wrrrr…,” stammered the Fonz. Well, the same goes for me. I was wrrrr… about our Penguins. Six weeks ago I predicted a black-and-gold im [...]

Penguins Rally Behind Crosby and Letang: Hunt Down Panthers

00ppfront For the better part of 55 minutes it looked like one of those nights for our Pittsburgh Penguins. You know. Second of back-to-back games. On the road, to boot. Tired legs. No puck luck. Then…BLAM. In a volcanic display of skill, Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang erupted for three goals in just over six minutes to stun the Florida Panthers and sna [...]

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 [...]
