What if we tried to make Pittsburgh not look stupid & petty tonight for the HBO 24/7 camera’s and national TV? Lemieux once got a standing ovation in Philadelphia when he showed up.
Today all I see and hear is reporters all over the radio, news print and social media telling me about how I should boo Jaromir Jagr tonight. I will n [...]
Jason Williams scored his first goal as a Pittsburgh Penguin 2 minutes into the game blasting a shot from the blue line past Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller tonight and the Penguins never looked back. Four minutes later Pens Simon Despres scored his first ever NHL goal and a few minutes after that Evgeni Malkin scored his first of thre [...]
Right now 3 or 4 Penguins are sidelined with concussions. After the NHL completely ignored Philadelphia Flyer Zac Rinaldo’s blind side head hit that gave the Penguins defenseman Bob Bortuzzo a concussion, I think it’s time Matt Cooke goes back to playing hockey the way only he knows how.
I’m not going to hide from the fact t [...]
Where have all the NHL Superstars gone? Even though he was sidelined for 10 1/2 months, Sidney Crosby in a mere five games has returned to his top post among the NHL’s elite.
Captain Crosby’s 11 points in 5 games leads the league with a points per game average of 2.20 points per game. By contrast the NHL leading scorer Phil Kessel [...]
The Penguins have afforded Sidney Crosby all the time he needs. There are many documented cases of players around the NHL coming back to soon after concussions. It would be stupid to push Sidney Crosby back onto the ice too soon at a time when the Penguins are tied for the lead in the Eastern Conference and have lost the least amount of game [...]
When I first learned that fellow PenguinPoop blogger Rick Buker had written a new book about the Pittsburgh Penguins, I must confess that I wondered what he could’ve found to write about. After all, his first book — “Total Penguins” — was 705 pages and covered just about everything you’d ever want to know about the team but was afraid to ask. [...]
A little over a week ago, PenguinPoop’s Art Vandelay’s bachelor party started out on Pittsburgh’s north shore at the Tilted Kilt and somehow ended up in Montreal. He got to hang with Marc Andre Fleury and Kris Letang up at an Allan Walsh – Octagon Pro Training Camp at Lower Canada College. Vandelay was invited to th [...]

*Penguins signed 36 year old winger Steve Sullivan from Nashville for $1.5 mil [...]
Tonight the Penguins need to hit somebody. I’m not talking the soft checks the Pens have been throwing the last two games. I’m talking the Brooks Orpik type teeth rattling check he threw at Steven Stamkos the first game. For the last two games the Penguins have let Tampa skate in and around the net without consequences. It’s [...]
