The Pittsburgh Penguins start the first round of the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs against a Columbus Blue Jackets team who have played in the NHL for 14 years and have yet to win a playoff game. Should be a slam dunk right?
We’ve put together an incredible group of writers to predict how the series will pan out and at the same time throw [...]
Saturday, the Penguins & Bruins throw down in the first all black & gold NHL Eastern Conference Finals game since 1992 when the Penguins steamrolled through the Bruins on their way to winning their second Stanley Cup. We’ve been around the block. What happened in the 1990′s has nothing to do with these two teams today, o [...]
There are many questions the Penguins need to answer going into round two against the Ottawa Senators. The biggest question is who’s going to be the goaltender that stands up in between the pipes. Will it be the playoff experienced Marc-Andre Fleury or the hot guy right now Tomas Vokoun?
We’ve put together an incredible group [...]
When the puck drops Wednesday night in downtown Pittsburgh you can throw the 15 game win streak, the finishing first in the Eastern Conference and the Penguins beating the Islanders four out of the 5 games played this season out the window. Get rid of the pre-conceived notion that the New York Islanders are just going to roll over and hand th [...]
I hope that the Penguins management team had a close eye on the Flyer-Devils series. The Devils put on a clinic as to how to win a playoff series. First and foremost, play hard every shift. The Penguins most certainly did NOT do that. Next is play with a strong defensive posture – know what man you are responsible for and pressure him eve [...]
Over the next week or so each of us here at PenguinPoop will be taking a hard look at whether or not the Pittsburgh Penguins organization needs to make any changes. Second up is Horse.
The most important thing that has to be done if the Penguins are going to win another Stanley Cup is fix Marc Andre Fleury. He shows spurts of brillia [...]
I have been a Penguin fan for 40 years. I have had season tickets for 37 years. Watching the performance of this team in game 3 has to be the low point of the 40 years for me.
A part of being a Penguin fan has always included hating the Flyers. We hated the Flyers because of the stupid and childish things that they did. On Sunday I had to w [...]
We have a saying here at PenguinPoop that “We have more hockey knowledge in our body than you have in your entire pinky“, that just being a little humor and all, the “body” of people writing here at PenguinPoop have probably been to more Penguins games than any other collection of Pittsburgh Penguins’ writers on the internet. Two of us have [...]
It’s the halfway point of the Penguins season and right now the Penguins are in the midst of one of their biggest downturns in recent history. They say you can learn from the past so we’ve put together a group of long time Penguins fans, one of whom who wrote a couple books on the Pens, to review how the Penguins season has shape [...]
We thought we would post some of our emails that are going back and forth here at PenguinPoop about how we think the playoffs will go down. We are doing this informally, so some of us are only talking about the first round Eastern Conference, while some of us talk about both conferences and who will win the cup. Enjoy.
If you are interest [...]
