Hossa… a Detroit Red Wing JINX

fleury-stops-hossa Here we are off to the JLA… and really – why the heck are we so happy? Our Flightless Birdies are 0 for 3 there. Crosby is a MINUS 3 and no points in those games. Our late season additions Guerin and Kunitz combined have ZIPPO points and are a combined MINUS 4. Someone must have done something there, right… yet Gonch [...]

Pens Dig Deep: Force Game 7 in Detroit

staalfingm6 Wow, what a game!  What a night.  These Penguins played a very desperate game just as they needed to.  This was a true team effort.  On a night where both Crosby and Malkin were held off of the scoresheet and had only two shots between them, the rest of the team picked up the slack and put the game away.  Everybody chipped in with gutsy effor [...]

GameDay Poop: Stanley Cup Game 6 Prediction – The Pittsburgh Penguins vs Detroit Redwings

To raise Lord Stanley’s silver chalice, all the Penguins need to do is win two games in a row. They have won two games in a row 18 times already this season including once already against Detroit a few days ago. They have already played a “must win or your playoffs are over” game and won it fairly easily, and they have alrea [...]

Pens Fall Flat: Detroit Takes 3-2 Advantage

fleuryfingm51 For the first part of the opening period I thought the the Pens were on track to take one in Detroit.  They were dominating play in a very fast-paced first period.  When Detroit’s Niklas Kronwall took a tripping penalty, I thought the Pens were poised to take this game over.  Unfortunately, momentum has a way of shifting the flow of a g [...]

Penguins Big 3 are the Keys to Victory

The Now and the Future The Now and the Future As a 35+ years Penguin fan, there is only one thing I truly need to witness — that is the Penguins skating around the Mellon Arena ice with the Stanley Cup.  In 1991 and 1992 we had to drive to the airport to be a part of the celebration.  In the Gypsy Pool, I picked the Penguins to win in six, knowing that mean [...]

Game Day Poop: Stanley Cup Game 5 Preview – The Pittsburgh Penguins Start of an Evolution

The Penguins MUST win a game in the Detroit Red Wing’s Joe Lewis Arena to win Lord Stanley’s Cup, it is that simple. Tonight the energized and confident Penguins are looking to repeat what happened in the Washington Capital series by winning their third game in a row after being down two. Detroit will be the one playing desperatio [...]

Pens Even the Series Up with 4-2 Victory at Mellon Arena

gm4celebration Could it be that the Penguins have “broken” another goaltender.  Eight times in the eighteen playoff games that Osgood has played, he has let in a goal or less.  This includes games 1 and 2 against the Pens where he allowed just one goal in each game.  In the last two games Pittsburgh has found the back of the net eight times.  Th [...]

Letang: He’s better than Gonchar & Lidstrom… RIGHT NOW

Experienced Trophy Lifter The pre-game storyline hype for tonight are mostly about Marian Hossa scoring 2 goals in another game 4 and that Pavel Datsyuk practiced with his team yesterday. Will Datsyuk play in Game 4 or will they keep him out until Game 5? Will Hossa continue his Game 4 – 2 goal production? If Datsyuk does play will he take some of the defensive pressu [...]

GameDay Poop: Stanley Cup Game 4 Preview – The Red Wings are Starting to Sweat

The Pittsburgh Penguins are heading into game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals in the exact way they headed into last years game four, down 2 games to one. The Red Wings won the first two games this year and last year, and this year the Penguins lost game 4.  They need to win it this year, The Penguins Must Change the Script. “we know how bi [...]

The Penguins Must Change the Script

00ppfront After three games of the Stanley Cup finals, Red Wings – Penguins II has the same results as last year.  Game 4 is where the Penguins have to change the script.  In 2008, the Pens failed to capitalize on a couple of five-on-three situations, and eventually came up on the short end of a 2-1 game.  This will be the fourth game in six days [...]
