Penguins Update: Bylsma Pushes the Right Buttons

pp0350 There’s an old adage in sports—ride the horse that brung ya.’ (Or something like that.) Thank goodness Penguins coach Dan Bylsma paid it no mind as filled out his lineup card for Thursday’s critical Game 5 matchup with the pesky New York Islanders. I’ve been critical of the Pens’ skipper in the past for what I felt were questionable personnel [...]

Video: Sidney Crosby Goes All Mario Lemieux On The Islanders

pp0389 Here is Sidney Crosby & Mario Lemieux’s goal side by side.  Crosby’s amazing goal was almost identical to the goal that Mario Lemieux scored against the Islanders then had bronzed outside the Consol Energy Center.   Also,  videos of the goal from on 3 other broadcasts including the Islanders broadcast where they say Crosby did [...]

Malkin Could Use Some Help

pp0388 Penguins leading scorer in this young playoff season, Evgeni Malkin, has gotten a reputation in the NHL.  It’s not a good one.  It is the same reputation that Sidney Crosby had a few years ago and he’s having a little trouble shaking it. Every team knows right now that they can throw Malkin off his game by getting in his face.  Cr [...]

Penguins Replace Fading Flower for Game 5

pp0387 Before I begin, I must confess that it pained me to write this piece. The last thing I want to do is be hard on a player—in this case Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury—when he’s down. Not only is Fleury one of the longest tenured Penguins—his career dates back to 2003-04—but he’s been such a huge part of the team’s success. Plus, he seems lik [...]

Benching Fleury Solves Only One of Penguins Many Problems

vokoun While Penguins goaltender Marc-André Fleury has rightfully bore the brunt of the load for last nights loss.  The puck doesn’t stop there.  Literally and figuratively. Penguins coach Dan Bylsma sat before reporters last night and was asked “.. is there any thought to putting Vokoun in for game five?”  After he him-hawed aroun [...]

Who are these guys wearing Black and Gold and what have they done with the Penguins?

pp0381 OK, I was wrong.  Before the playoffs started, I predicted the Penguins would win their first round series against the Islanders four games to one.  After last night’s pathetic excuse of a hockey game, the series is now tied 2-2 and returns back to Pittsburgh for Game 5 Thursday night at the Consol Energy Center. But was I really wrong? [...]

Are Penguins Doomed to Repeat History?

pp0379 During a recent interview with Craig Adams, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette asked the Penguins forward if he thought history might play a part in the opening-round series between the Pens and Islanders. “I always laugh when I see historical statistics that don’t really mean anything,” Adams said. However, as Winston Churchill onc [...]

Video: Penguins Neal Viciously Slashed by Islanders Hamonic, Doesn’t Return

pp0376 James Neal was viciously slashed by NY Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic during a Penguins 5 on 3 powerplay in the second period of Wednesday night’s playoff game.  While it is being speculated that Neal had a lower body injury after a clean check by Hamonic, you can clearly see in the first video that it is Neal’s right hand th [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins Beat Tavares to Pulverize the New York Islanders

pp0377 Sid should send 91 a “Been there. Sucks to be the obvious best player on your emerging playoff team” fruit basket. And some ice packs. There was so much that went right last night for the Penguins that this post could focus on just about anything, but it feels good to be on the giving end of a seek-and-destroy strategy. The Pens r [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins: Too Many Players, So Little Time

pp0375 Sidney Crosby worked out with the Penguins conditioning coach and left the ice before the Penguins started their practice this morning. Odds are Crosby will not be playing tonight.  Coach Bylsma usually has the players attend the regular practice if they are playing, though he could make an exception for Crosby. While it is up in the air whet [...]
