So much for Carolina going undefeated in games that Eric Staal finds the scoresheet. In the playoffs, until tonight, the Hurricanes were 7-0 when Staal scored. Staal was responsible for the only goal Carolina could muster in this game. Unfortunately for him, he got no scoring support from any of his teammates on the way to losing the series [...]
The Penguins have taken their game to a level that hasn’t been seen in Pittsburgh since the early nineties when Lemieux and company used to torment the opposition. Desire to prove themselves is deep seated in these youths and unfortunately for the Carolina Hurricanes they’re all that’s standing in the way of the Penguins ret [...]
It appears that the Penguins have broken another goalie. First Varlamov. It took a few games. And now Ward. It took one game. I don’t include Biron because he was already broken. It has been more than just breaking a goalie for the Penguins. The goaltender has no control over how many or what types of shots he faces. He just has [...]
Bill Guerin, from his interview on the PENS WOOHOO Train (Click here: Guerin BEST TEAM ) says this year’s Pens are the best offensive team he’s played for in his entire career… ”Sid and Geno bring their talent level and they make everybody else better. They make everybody else’s tal [...]
Lets face it, the inevitable is going to happen and the Pittsburgh Penguins are going to be face to face with the Detroit Redwings on June 5 when the puck is dropped inside Joe Lewis Arena for the beginning of the Stanley Cup finals. The one thing that is on every Penguin fans mind is showing Marian Hossa how stupid he was for leaving.
I hav [...]
RALEIGH, N.C. – If the Pittsburgh Penguins continue to play the way have against the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference Finals, they may be able to lay claim to being the most offensively dynamic team since the dynastic Oilers of the late ’80s.

The Penguins are up 2 games to none and are heading into the eye of the hurricane at the RBC Center and unfortunately for the Canes the eye is the calm part of the storm. The Hurricanes are 4-2 on home ice in the playoffs and lost their last game at home 4-2 to the Bruins. How calm is Carolina home ice? So calm that that they haven’t so [...]
Heading into last night’s game against the Hurricanes, Sidney Crosby held the playoff scoring lead by one point over teammate Evgeni Malkin. Crosby had his sixth first goal of a game (tying an NHL record) and added an assist. The two points were not enough to retain the scoring lead, as Malkin had three goals and an assist to take ove [...]
A handful of things came out of this game. I believe, after witnessing this game, that there is now some hatin’ to do. The Hurricanes, after they had gotten out of the game, decided to take the physical play to a different level. They were taking runs at guys after whistles, cheap shots and whatever other liberties they thought they [...]
Hurricane? Monday night’s performance by the Hurricanes would barely rate as a Tropical Storm. The Penguins owned the game from the beginning up until about 3 minutes left when Carolina’s cardiac kids whipped up a storm and came close to tying the game. These two teams have been traveling the same road the last few months, coming [...]
