Penguins Stun Blue Jackets in Series Opener

A little over a year ago, Marc-Andre Fleury was in a groove. Entering a Thursday night clash with Nashville, the Pens goalie had won seven of his past eight starts. He’d win that one, too. Midway through the contest, however, a blast off the stick of former teammate James Neal caught “Flower” flush, dislodging his mask. Shortly after the game [...]

Playoff Preview: Can the Penguins Survive Columbus?

It’s the matchup I’ve dreaded since early in the season. Starting Wednesday night at PPG Paints Arena, the Penguins square off against the bristling Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

A victory that, coupled with a Columbus loss, enabled the black and gold to sew up home-ice advantage for the opening round of the playoffs. Although a [...]

Penguins Master Columbus, Gain Inside Track on Home-Ice Advantage

In a preview of their probable upcoming playoff series, the Penguins made a statement—and perhaps gained an edge—with a convincing 4-1 victory over Columbus last night before a packed house at PPG Paints Arena. Predictably, the contest was a clash of contrasting styles. Led by heavyweight forwards Josh Anderson, Scott Hartnell and Boone Jenne [...]
