  • Penguins Lose To Lighting: Must Be the Florida Sunshine Blues – October 27, 2010The way the first period was going, I thought the Pens might score like 10 goals in this game.  Unfortunately, I thought Tampa Bay might score 6 or 7.  The way Pens moved the puck on their first power play was magical.  I could have watched that all…

  • Penguins Finally Get First Win at Console - October 15, 2010All it took was for the Islanders to come to town without their three best players.  The Pens still look terribly sloppy.  Hopefully, it doesn’t take much longer before they begin to gel.

    This is the view from lower Center Avenue.     The is the view from upper Center Avenue.

    I got my opportunity to go down and see the new home of the Pittsburgh Penguins. I have to say, it was, in fact, very impressive.

    Ask any of the Penguins players which team they would rather face in the second round of the playoffs, and they’ll all most likely give the same stock answer, “It doesn’t matter to me”  On the other hand, I’m sure like me, you all…

  • Craig Adams is an Important Role Player for the Penguins – April 26, 2010To win in the playoffs, all hands have to be on deck.  With one series complete, the Pens have already used seven defensemen, 14 forwards, and one goalie.  All 22 of these players had a role to play in the win over Ottawa.   One player who does his…

  • As Predicted, Penguins Defeat Ottawa in Six – April 23, 2010Many people, including myself, predicted that the Penguins would win this series in six games.  So why should we be surprised when that is going to be the case?  For some reason, the Penguins cannot find a way to finish things up at home.  This is t…

  • Video: Sidney Crosby nets two of the Top Ten Goals of the Year – April 5, 2010The NHL network may have jumped the gun on this one a little being 50+ games left and all.  Though I’m pretty sure the goal of the year by Steven Stamkos will stick at #1.  Sidney Crosby had the #7 and #5 goals and I didn’t find them all that excitin…
