Penguins Got ‘Dem Heavy Team Blues

632626098_slide (1) Sounds like a line from a Muddy Waters song. The Penguins got ‘dem heavy team blues. A shame I’m not referring to an old Delta Blues tune. Or even the St. Louis Blues, the bruising denizens of the Western Conference who delivered more than a few lumps en route to a 3-0 drubbing of the black and gold at PPG Paints Arena last night. I’m talking [...]

Penguins Update: All I Want for the Trade Deadline

00ppfront Maybe it’s a little late for Christmas, and a tad early for Valentine’s Day. But since we’ve been talking (writing) all around the subject in our comments, I thought I’d come right out and ask. What would you, faithful PenguinPoop readers, do to improve our Penguins for another run at the Stanley Cup? You can identify players you wish to trad [...]

Penguins Top Line Shines

632418040_slide With the Penguins taking on the Bruins and the Steelers challenging the Patriots for a Super Bowl berth, it was a huge sports weekend in the ‘Burgh. One with a pronounced Pittsburgh-Boston flavor. While our Steelers fell short, dropping a lopsided 36-17 decision to the Pats, the Pens salvaged a split—not to mention a little local pride—with a [...]

Ex-Penguins Update: January 22, 2017

00ppfront Here’s a look at how former Penguins have fared thus far in 2016-17. Stats include games played through Saturday, January 21. Marian Hossa tops the ex-Pens with 17 goals. James Neal is second with 15. Hossa and Jaromir Jagr are tied for the scoring lead with 29 points, four ahead of David Perron and Matt Niskanen (25 apiece). Niskanen leads t [...]

The Wow Factor: Penguins Crush Carolina 7-1

632252364_slide I’ve surely used this lead-in before. But, at the risk of repeating myself, what a difference a week makes. Why, following last Saturday night’s ugly 6-3 loss to Detroit the Penguins were sagging against the ropes and slipping in the standings. Losers of three in a row on the road—all by lopsided scores—there seemed to be definite cause for a [...]

Penguins Cure Road Woes: Whip Montreal 4-1

632015840_slide I confess. I really wasn’t sure what to expect from our Penguins when they visited the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre last night. Would the chaos that reigned supreme in Monday’s wild 8-7 victory over Washington carry over? Would the wheels fall off the wagon, as they had in the Pens’ previous three road games—all defeats? Thankfully, [...]
