Are the Pittsburgh Penguins a .500 Hockey Team?

photo_image9-smallest As of November 4th, the Penguins are a .500 hockey team.  With the way that they have played so far this season, they are lucky to be at .500.  To put the 13 points that they have so far this season in perspective, they are only four points ahead of the New Jersey Devils in the standings, and the Devils have been absolutely horrible.  Why ar [...]

The Penguins Will Get Better

00ppfront The Penguins are 6-5-1 through their first twelve games.  They have been short of a completely healthy lineup by at least two players and as many as four players throughout the entire beginning stretch.  It appeared that Staal was going to play Wednesday in Dallas.  Word is now that he suffered an upper body injury at practice today.  Neither [...]

The NHL’s Eastern Conference

NHL Eastern Conference logo As we near the end of the first month of the season, let’s take a look at the Eastern Conference.  Fifteen teams, eight will make the playoffs and seven will not.  You only have to look back to last year to see the importance of every point.  The Flyers got into the playoffs on their last game of the season by winning a shootout.  Then [...]

Penguins Cannot Afford Home Losses

00ppfront      For just the fourth time in Penguin history, the Pens have started the season 0-3 at home.  The other three times that happened, it was somewhat expected.  This year in the brand new CEC it was not.  All three losses have been earned in basically the same fashion — poor passing, poor puck management, poor powerplays, and poor goalt [...]

The Stanley Cup Blues

00ppfront The day after the Penguins were eliminated from the playoffs by the Canadiens, I was disappointed and upset.  Over the next few days, my mood improved as I started to put together some reasons as to why the Pens lost.  I was accepting the fact that it just wasn’t in the cards for the Penguins this year. After watching the Flyers complet [...]

Penguins/Canadiens – Game Seven

00ppfront The Montreal Canadiens have forced a Game Seven.  You have to give them credit.  Once they got behind, facing elimination, they played their best hockey of the series.  The Penguins were not able to create the same level of desperation.  As Steigy once said, “You can’t play with desperation unless you’re desperate.”  N [...]

Penguins Win in Six

00ppfront Game Six at the Bell Center.  The Penguins have a chance to close out another series on the road.  One thing we know for sure — they’ve done it before.  I predicted the Pens would win this series in five games.  I really didnt’ think that Halak and the Canadiens could continue on this emotional high for so long.  They have p [...]

Penguins Need A Positive Push

00ppfront With a chance to take a stranglehold in this series and 20 minutes to play in Game 4, the Penguins lost their way.  A stat that is often looked at in the NHL is the team’s record when leading or trailing after the second period.  Trailing after two, the Canadiens were 4-29 this season and 0-2 during the playoffs.  Leading after two peri [...]

Penguins’ American Coach Has Been Very Successful

250px-Dan_Bylsma The Penguins needed Gorges and Gill in the penalty box at the same time, a fresh sheet of ice, and a 5 on 4 man advantage to score a goal against Halak.  Fortunately it was all that they needed to win their fourth straight playoff game in Canada and take a 2-1 series lead over the Canadiens.  Montreal played their best hockey of the series i [...]

Penguins Need To Be Better At Home

00ppfront Five home games into the 2010 playoffs and the Pens are 2-3 against inferior opponents. Hopefully this is a trend that will not continue. It took three wins in Ottawa to advance to the 2nd round. In order to advance to the conference finals, the Pens will now have to continue their excellent road play. In order to keep the series rom going th [...]
