Tortorella, Milbury & Berube Resolve to Calling Crosby & Malkin Names

Torterella Whining The NHL is a game played by men.  To ensure this the NHL has a strict rule that a player be the age of 18 or more before September 16th of the year of Entry Draft eligibility.  For coaches and TV analysts the rules are a bit less strict. This week in Penguins history started with NBC analyst Mike Milbury saying this about Sidney Crosby on a [...]

Penguins Crunch Rangers 5-2, Clinch Fourth Seed

00ppfront The Penguins passed a big test against the Rangers as they tuned up for the Stanley Cup playoffs at CONSOL Energy Center on Thursday night. Fueled by two-point games from Chris Kunitz, Kris Letang, Evgeni Malkin, and Jordan Staal—not to mention a tidy 35-save effort by Marc-Andre Fleury—the black and gold spanked the Eastern Conference champs [...]

Penguins Update: Quote of the Week

00ppfront In the wake of the Penguins-Flyers game-ending brawl on Sunday—which featured a heated verbal exchange between Philly coach Peter Laviolette and black-and-gold assistant Tony Granato—NBC Hockey analyst Mike Milbury criticized Pens skipper Dan Bylsma for not getting involved. “I thought Dan Bylsma should have taken off his skirt and gone over [...]

Crosby Nets Two as Penguins Bop Bruins 5-3

00ppfront While it wasn’t exactly an ode to better puck management, the Penguins rebounded from a galling loss to the Flyers to whip the equally tough Bruins, 5-3, at TD Garden on Tuesday night. Pacing the win for the locals were Sidney Crosby, who collected two goals and an assist, and defenseman Kris Letang (three assists). Backup goalie Brent Johnso [...]

Flyers Rally, Smoke Sputtering Penguins 6-4

00ppfront In all likelihood the Penguins and the Flyers will clash in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs during the very near future. If Sunday’s matinee contest at CONSOL Energy Center was a preview, the Pens could be in big trouble. After striking for two quick goals, the home team crumbled like the dome on the old Civic Arena en route to [...]

Penguins Doin’ Fine without Jagr

00ppfront As our Penguins prepare to battle archenemy (and likely first-round playoff opponent) Philadelphia on Sunday, I thought it might be a good time to reflect on the Flyers’ signing of free agent Jaromir Jagr last summer. Kind of a hockey version of Back to the Future, if you will. Just to refresh your memory, the former Steel City great decided [...]

Crosby, Penguins Carve Up Sabres 5-3

00ppfront Fresh off a pair of dismal losses to the New York Islanders, the Penguins traveled to Buffalo to take on the Sabres at First Niagara Center on Friday night. Arguably the league’s hottest team, Lindy Ruff’s crew hardly fit the bill of a patsy. Indeed, the hungry young Sabres entered the contest on a five-game winning streak. Fortunately, the P [...]

Bailey, Okposo Power Islanders Past Penguins 5-3

00ppfront In the wake of his team’s sloppy 5-3 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma clearly wasn’t a happy camper. He made it plain during Wednesday’s practice session that he expected better defensive play from his troops. “They realize the situation,” Bylsma said. “Players spoke. Coaches spoke.” To make sure his charges got the [...]

Penguins Update: Bylsma a Dapper Dan

00ppfront To say Dan Bylsma has accomplished a lot during his three-plus seasons as Penguins coach would be an understatement roughly the size of Texas. In his first year at the helm Bylsma guided the Pens to a Stanley Cup. Last season he coaxed 106 points out of a team that was walloped by injuries, earning him the Jack Adams (coach of the year) Award [...]

Penguins History: Eddie “The Entertainer” Shack

Shack He wasn’t the best player to don a Penguins jersey. Not by a long shot. But few players in the history of the National Hockey League ever generated more press—or cultivated a more loyal following—than Edward Steven Phillip Shack. Born of hearty Ukrainian stock, Shack grew up in Sudbury, Ontario. As a teenager he worked in a coal mine and a lo [...]
