Penguins: Odds and Sods

A big welcome back to the ‘burgh to Marc-Andre Fleury. Welcome back Fleury! You may be donning a different uniform tonight but you haven’t been forgotten. We Penguins’ fans still remember everything you did here for our team while wearing the Black-and-Gold. We also remember everything you did off the ice; your friendliness and generosity. Wh [...]

The Penguins: Bedeviled in New Jersey

Where did the Penguins go? Who were those guys wearing the Black-and-Gold, skating around so clueless in New Jersey? What a difference 24hrs makes (and not in a good way). After dismantling the division leading Washington Capitals on Friday night 7 – 4, our Penguins did a 180 and pulled a Mr. Hyde on Saturday. On Friday, they had all the answ [...]

The Caps called down the thunder; Malkin and the Penguins gave it to them

Wow! Just plain Wow! After watching that display of raw firepower, the Penguins win 7 – 4 over the Capitals, Wow! I was just sitting here thinking about this game; I was thinking about how Tom Wilson leaped up off his skates to hit Ian Cole with a high hit. I was thinking about T.j.

It is hard to imagine a goalie stealing a game in a 5 – 2 win but that is exactly what happened last night. Even though Bryan Rust opened up t [...]

The Penguins Go Wild Against Minnesota

To steal a quote from Mike Lange, “”If you missed this one, shame on you for six weeks”. Well, after all, it was a throwback to the 80s night last night at the arena. The Big Three got together again last night and waged a “Shock and Awe” campaign against the Minnesota Wild. Our boys in Black and Gold poured it on for just a little over 2 per [...]

The Penguins DeSmith Beats the Canes

Great goaltending can negate a lot of sins and the Penguins got some great goaltending from Casey DeSmith last night in a 3 – 1 win over Carolina. It was DeSmith’s first home win and second overall of the season. The good news is that our Penguins do have DeSmith and he was able to put them back into the play-off picture, rejecting 34 of 35 s [...]
