If there were any die hard Michel Therrien fans out there, I’m sure their opinion swayed the second the clocked stopped in game 7 of the finals. That is of course not including his close family members.
There has always been one thing hanging over Dan Bylsma’s head like plastic mistletoe and that is the question of whether it was [...]
Man, it is hard to watch the Devils play hockey. What a boring game. In their defense, it is effective; as evidenced by tonight’s loss. The Pens looked a bit out of sorts tonight. There were a bunch of bad passes, missed shots, bad offsides, mishandled pucks and other mental errors. It could be contributed to having played on back [...]
If your going to compare yourself to a goaltender, you might as well compare yourself to the best in the NHL. As luck would have it, this Saturday when the Penguins play Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils, Marc-André Fleury will have a chance to bypass the pace that Brodeur has set on his way to most wins in NHL history for a goaltender [...]
If you haven’t heard yet, Sergei Gonchar yesterday suffered a broken wrist that will keep him out at least 6-8 weeks and Dan Bylsma announced that recently signed Martin Skoula will be replacing him. Ray Shero signed Skoula to a one year contract on September 29th after Skoula’s crazy summer. Skoula played the last three plus sea [...]
The hockey season is now three weeks old, and we have gotten a glimpse of how teams are shaping up for the 09-10 campaign. Some teams are playing over their heads (NY Rangers), some are just feeling their way into the year (Carolina and Boston), and some have already established themselves as awful (Toronto).
My initial thought [...]
I can remember playing dek hockey where my team was up by 6 or 7 goals and in an effort to minimize embarrassment for the other team, we would play keep away rather than trying to score more goals. That is what it looked like for a good portion of this game. Unfortunately, the Pens were not up by 6 or 7 goals. It would have been nice to se [...]
Saturday October 17th starts the return of the Penguins ugly “Bad Luck” blue jerseys and Penguin management has a plan. The plan is to change the image of the jerseys from bad luck to good luck. How are they going to do that you ask. If you must know, they scheduled the jersey only to be worn against the worst teams in the league. [...]
The Stanley Cup banners are now all in a row!
Here’s a conundrum. Do you touch the cup?
The Penguin Pooper above opted not to touch the cup as to not ruin his chances of winning it someday, while the Penguin Pooper below opted to not only to touch it, but he had his kid touch it also.
Man, did Cam Ward make a couple of amazing glove saves. If he had not, the game most certainly would not have gone to overtime or a shootout. The Pens definitely could have been due for a let down on this five game road trip, but they showed some good character and were able to pull out the shoot-out victory.
It was great to see Kun [...]
Do you think that Tyler Kennedy read my recent post where I challenged his ability to finish. If he did, he apparently set out to prove me wrong tonight. He had two goals tonight. One of those goals was a wonderful slapshot. He is really playing well. In fact, the third line in general is playing consistently well. Even when Staal has sp [...]
