Penguins Playoff Update: By the Numbers

A win is a win. If I’ve heard that adage once, I’ve heard it a thousand times. And I certainly won’t disagree. Still, while our Penguins have captured a remarkable seven of nine playoff contests thus far, they haven’t earned many style points along the way. With an extra day between games and a little time to kill, I thought I’d share some nu [...]

Penguins Stave Off Capitals 3-2

They say all is fair in love and war. Perhaps in hockey, too. Two nights after Washington kayoed our captain, Sidney Crosby, in dastardly fashion, the Penguins resorted to a little chicanery in Game 4 to ensure a win.

Penguins Playoff Update: Shades of ‘92

I remember the incident like it was yesterday. It was Tuesday, May 5, 1992. Game Two of the Patrick Division Finals.

Indeed, there’s something downright dangerous ab [...]

Penguins Plunder Capitals in Game 2

To borrow from the theme song to the old tearjerker “Love Story,” where do I begin? I have so many impressions of the Penguins’ stunning 6-2 conquest of Washington at the Verizon Center last night…not all of them good. Guess I’ll start at the beginning. How we survived another hellish first period, when the Capitals piled up an astounding 35 [...]
