Are the Penguins’ Injuries Due to a Lack of Size?

A number of faithful PenguinPoop readers and bloggers (myself included) have suggested in the recent past that the Penguins’ onerous injury situation may be related to our physical stature. 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.

What do Trevor Daley, Jake Guentzel, Carl Hagelin, Ron Hainsey, Kr [...]

Penguins Show Moxie in Shootout Loss to Ottawa

It didn’t show up on the score sheet. And it definitely won’t make a short list of Sidney Crosby’s career highlights. Unlike his fabulous one-handed goal against Buffalo on Tuesday night. But Crosby’s pushback during a first-period scrum against Ottawa last night spoke volumes of his character and leadership. Not to mention his banged-up team [...]
