Penguins Update: Adversity Arrives in the ‘Burgh

It’s hard to decide who looked more morose. Never one to hide his emotions, Mike Sullivan did a slow, sullen burn on the Penguins’ bench as he watched his team collapse in the late stages of an embarrassing 6-3 loss to Detroit last night. “We didn’t play the right way again; we are trying to outscore teams instead of outplaying them,” said th [...]

Penguins Projections

I don’t know about you. But for me, math and fun don’t often go together. Especially if we’re talking trigonometry or calculus (shudder).

Penguins Fall to Capitals

Eyeing goalie Andrei Vasi [...]

The Baby Pens have scored 117 goals (tied for third-best in the league) and allowed 77 (second fewest). Rookie Jake Guentzel leads the way with a league [...]

Penguins Update: Fleury Revival

There’s a revival of sorts going on in the ‘Burgh these days. One involving a slender 32 year old from Sorel, Quebec with dark, flashing eyes and a shy, ready smile. During his past four outings—all of them wins—Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury posted a microscopic 1.79 goals against average and equally gaudy .943 save percentage. A welcome [...]
