pp0366 As a rookie hopeful fresh out of the University of Minnesota-Duluth, Pat Boutette received a baptism by fire … from his own teammate.

Boutette’s sp [...]

Penguins Need Malkin More Than Ever

malkin There’s a rather ominous Bible verse in the book of Hosea that warns, “… they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.” While I may be guilty of taking this passage of scripture out of context, it sure seems like an apt description for what has been an exhilarating yet tumultuous couple of weeks for Penguins hockey. On the plus [...]

Today is the 25th Anniversary of Mario Lemieux’s Greatest Game and Greatest Goal

pp0362 It’s funny how history works. If the Penguins didn’t go on to win the Stanley Cup in the 1990-91 season, most Pittsburgh Penguin fans wouldn’t be familiar with “The Save” that Frank Pietrangelo made that turned the playoffs around. If the Pittsburgh Pirates didn’t have a defensive lapse in the ninth inning [...]

Penguins Update: A Funny Thing Happened on the Road to the Cup

pp0361 It sure is a wonderful time to be a Penguins fan. With a little help from friends Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby has reestablished himself as the finest player in the game.

Now That Iginla is a Penguin, Is This Cup Bylsma’s to Lose?

pp0350 I’m not completely sold that adding Iginla to the roster is all it’s cracked up to be, but that conversation has already happened in an earlier post, and the deal is already done. Let’s all put down our etching machines for a minute to ask an important question: Now that the Pens have an embarrassment of riches in terms of b [...]
