Earlier today I questioned what they were doing at the 7th Street Grille turning over “pro Penguin propaganda” to make a few Capital players comfortable while dining there late afternoon yesterday on word from an article in the Washington Post – “Two Games, Two Nights,“. So this afternoon our new PenguinPoop rep [...]
The Penguins played “desperation” hockey Wednesday and it paid off, the Penguins are in the same boat for today’s game, and would be best served playing desparation hockey for the rest of the series. “We have to bring the same effort. We know they expect more of themselves, so we expect a tougher game here in Game 4. [...]
The Pens are back in the series. Many feel that they should be ahead in the series except for the play of one man. Apologies to 8 but Varlamov has been the Capitals best player in all three games. Now it is Mark Andre Fleury’s turn. The Pens still need some other players to help out — Jordan Staal 0 – 1 – 1 -4 [...]
Wow, what can you say? Another fantastic game. So far, this series has exceeded all of the expectations. The league has to be incredibly satisfied with match up. The Pittsburgh Penguins win a great one, 3-2 in overtime.
It took and extra period to settle this one, but our Pittsburgh Penguins came out victorious. This, much like the ot [...]
The Penguins are in a hole and need to dig themselves out and a little home ice advantage is going to go a long way. There are three things that the Penguins need to do to win tonight:
Be more aggressive on the power play, shoot more. Having an extra player on the ice doesn’t mean it’s time to lollygag. You have to play more int [...]
If there is anyone out there reading this that didn’t enjoy the game they are more ‘hockey homers’ than they are ‘hockey fans’.
Anyone who has read my posts know I don’t complain about the referees very much at all. It’s a very tough job and decisions have to be made in a second. They don’t get [...]
As soon as the game ended last night, I started to write my piece for PenguinPoop. I was going to write about all the bad things that happened. We all know the reasons the Penguins are down 2-0 in the series. Instead I am going to look at the bright side. At this point the Penguins have lost two one-goal games on the road to a team, one [...]
I have got to say, that was an exciting hockey game. It had everything. The stars were out, great plays, better saves, big hits, drama and a fantastic finish. Unfortunately, the Pens come home down by two. This game could have gone either way. Both goaltenders played incredibly well. Varlamov played a hair better. He made some huge sav [...]
According to the New York Post – 35 year old, 1st round Penguin draft pick Markus Naslund is retiring. The New York Rangers signed Naslund last year to a 2 season $8 Million dollar contract, but his low production of 24 goals and 46 overall points has had the New York fans and media all over him for the bulk of the year.
If Naslund ret [...]
