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 [...]

Penguins Clip ‘Canes 3-2, Snag Second Place in Metro

I was all set to write my summary of Sunday’s 3-2 triumph over Carolina when my community experienced an electrical outage. Plans temporarily short-circuited, I decided to make the best of things and went out for an early morning walk while the utility company restored our power. Reminded me a bit of yesterday’s contest.

Comparatively small, by NHL standards. With a little time to kill between games, I thought I’d do a quickie comparison to see what I could see. Beginning [...]

Blackhawks Scalp Penguins 5-1

Recently, I’ve spent lots of time lamenting the Penguins’ injury woes. And it sure is tough to watch our guys repeatedly take it on the chin. Like last night’s 5-1 loss to Chicago at PPG Paints Arena, a defeat that was equal parts humbling and stinging. Talk about a slap in the face. The Pens have lost four games in a row for the first time s [...]
