Penguins Update: Flyers A Lot Like Smokin’ Joe

00ppfront The recently departed Joe Frazier was one of the greatest heavyweight boxing champions of all-time. Known as Smokin’ Joe for his relentless attacking style, Philadelphia’s favorite adopted son was a fighter of limited skills but enormous heart. Blessed with a granite chin, the squat and powerful Frazier would absorb an opponent’s best punches [...]

Pens’ Game 1 Loss to Flyers Best Outcome Short of Big Win

00ppfront While the Pittsburgh Penguins celebrated their first period victory down in the South Side, their stunt doubles let Game 1 slip away in the remaining two periods and change. That may actually be better than getting a win they didn’t deserve. For that last 42:23 the Pens were embarrassingly out shot, out hit, out hustled, and out hearted [...]

Flyers Feast, Penguins Fizzle in Game 1

00ppfront One of these days the Penguins are going to figure out how to play 60 minutes of solid hockey against the archrival Flyers. Steel City fans better pray that day comes soon—say, in time for Friday night’s Game 2 at CONSOL Energy Center. If not, it could be an awfully short postseason for the boys from the ‘Burgh. In a virtual replay of previou [...]

Penguins Strategy?

00ppfront I really hope that if the Pens are fortunate enough to have another large lead in this series, that they do not choose to use the “prevent defense” to protect that lead.  It never works out well.

Gameday Poop: Game 1 – Penguins vs Flyers – The Bloodbath

Penguins Vs. Flyers Don’t let these Flyers fool you. Flyers GM Paul Holmgren and coach Peter Laviolette have gone about rebuilding the team from the ground up. They started by removing the characters and keeping the players with character. In the off season they added and paid heavily for a player to come in that brought playoff experience.  Not only did h [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Philadelphia Flyers 2012 Playoff Predictions

00ppfront We have a saying here at PenguinPoop that “We have more hockey knowledge in our body than you have in your entire pinky“, that just being a little humor and all, the “body” of people writing here at PenguinPoop have probably been to more Penguins games than any other collection of Pittsburgh Penguins’ writers on the internet.  Two of us have [...]

Malkin Gets 50, Penguins Dump Flyers 4-2

00ppfront For a game that was meaningless in terms of its impact on the standings, Saturday afternoon’s contest between the Penguins and Flyers sure caused a stir. In the wake of last weekend’s brawl-marred Philly victory, neither team was letting its guard down. This would explain why the Pens summoned heavyweight Steve MacIntyre from their Wilkes-Bar [...]

Three Reasons the Penguins Should Sweep the Flyers

James Neal Actually there are WAY more than 3 reasons but this should be enough to convince Pens fans to wager early and heavily and Flyer fans to wish they liked soccer. Conditioning:   Consider the physical and mental fatigue that is endured during a best of 7 series especially when the opponent is a heated and hated rival (true hockey fans can total [...]
