Inspired Rangers Pound Penguins 5-1

pp0482 Inspired by the presence of veteran Martin St. Louis, whose mother passed away the day before, and fueled by a two-goal effort from Derick Brassard, the New York Rangers clobbered the Penguins, 5-1, in Game 5 on Friday night to stave off elimination. Along the way the Rangers snapped an ugly 0-for-36 streak on the power-play with a pair of ma [...]

Penguins Push Rangers to the Brink

pp0481 Paced by two-point efforts from superstars Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby, the Penguins outclassed the fading New York Rangers, 4-2, on Wednesday night to grab a commanding 3-1 lead in their second-round series. Despite losing defenseman Brooks Orpik late in the first period to an apparent knee injury, the black and gold limited the Rangers [...]

Penguins Defense Stands Tall

pp0480 Having posted consecutive shutouts against the stubborn New York Rangers, Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury has received tons of praise, and deservedly so. “Flower” is enjoying by far his best postseason since 2009, when he helped the Pens win the Cup. The oft-maligned defense deserves some love, too. As a group they’ve been nothing short of [...]

Playoff Penguins Show True Colors

pp0479 At the end of each episode of the old Lone Ranger TV show someone would invariably ask, “Who was that masked man?” Following the Penguins’ 2-0 triumph over the Rangers in Game 3 on Monday night, local fans could be excused for asking, “Who are those guys wearing the black and gold?” After struggling to hold leads during their first-round seri [...]

Penguins Nearly Perfect in 3-0 Win

pp0477 There are so many positives to draw from the Penguins’ 3-0 whitewash of the New York Rangers in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Semifinals series I scarcely know where to begin. Indeed, following an undisciplined start on Sunday night that saw the black and gold whistled for three minor penalties in seven minutes, the Pens shifted into top [...]

Penguins Fall to Rangers 3-2 in OT

pp0476 Following their Game 7 victory over Philadelphia on Wednesday night, the New York Rangers had less than 48 hours to prepare for their series opener with the Penguins. By contrast, the black and gold were rested and relaxed following three days off. Perhaps a little too relaxed. While the Rangers showed surprising hop to open Game 1, the Pens [...]

Are the Penguins Jelling at the Right Time?

pp0461 Maybe it’s too early to ponder that question. There are a lot more games to be won before the Penguins can dream of hoisting the Stanley Cup. Yet there are reasons to believe. Remember Game 3, when the Pens were reeling from an overtime loss and Columbus had them in an early hole? Instead of folding like a cheap suit, our boys stung the Blue [...]

Penguins Close Out Columbus 4-3

pp0460 I’ll say this about our Pittsburgh Penguins. They sure know how to make things interesting. Need proof? Then look no further than Monday night’s scintillating 4-3 victory over Columbus in Game 6 to clinch the opening-round series. Paced by Evgeni Malkin’s second playoff hat trick and Brandon Sutter’s breakaway tally, the high-flying Penguins [...]

Penguins Roll Past Columbus 3-1

pp0459 Through the first four games of their opening-round series with Columbus—and ever since the Olympic break—the Penguins have looked like a team in search of an identity. They may have found one on Saturday night. Called out by coach Dan Bylsma for a less-than-stellar effort in Game 4 and under intense fire from the local media, the Pens circl [...]

Baby Penguins Update: Final 2013-14 Stats

00ppfront Here are the final 2013-14 statistics for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. The Baby Pens (42-26-3-5) finished the regular season in second place in the AHL East Division with 92 points. (more…)
