Kuhnhackl Thriving With Penguins

pp0601 As a youngster growing up in Landshut, Germany, Tom Kuhnhackl had some awfully big skates to fill. His dad, Erich Kuhnhackl, was a larger-than-life figure (6’5” 213) who cut a wide swath across his country’s hockey landscape. During a legendary career that spanned 19 seasons in Germany and two in Switzerland, the elder Kuhnhackl tallied an a [...]

Penguins Roll to Lucky Seven

pp0600 When the Penguins went down by three goals to the Ottawa Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre last night, I found myself thinking strange thoughts.

Exuding a grit and resilience that’s come to typify their efforts under Mike Sullivan, the Penguins overcame two deficits on Sunday–not to mention tired legs–to beat New Yor [...]

Penguins Clip Wings: Kessel and Bonino Shine

pp0595 After absorbing a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of nettlesome New Jersey on Thursday night, the Penguins desperately needed a bounce-back effort against the Red Wings yesterday afternoon. They got one…in spades. Sparked by five-point performances from Nick Bonino and Phil Kessel and Carl Hagelin’s two-goal game, the Pens erupted for a seas [...]
