Penguins History: Randy Cunneyworth

Cunnyworth During the mid-1980s, then-Penguins general manager Eddie Johnston worked hard to build a competitive team around budding superstar Mario Lemieux. One of the club’s cornerstones during those developmental years was a feisty left wing named Randy Cunneyworth. An eighth-round pick of Buffalo in the 1980 Entry Draft, Cunneyworth established hims [...]

Crosby’s Return v. Rangers More About Heart than Scoreboard

00ppfront This is awfully dramatic timing, isn’t it? Think about it: huge game in our series with the New York Rangers as the Pens sniff at a number-one seed; on the road in MSG against a bitter rival; our very own Charlie Conway… er… Sidney Crosby back in the lineup. We are one slow-motion action montage set to a Foo Fighters song aw [...]

Sidney Crosby Returns

00ppfront   Wow, Sidney Crosby is a third line center between Cooke and Kennedy.  I wonder how long that will last.  Either way, I can’t wait to see him play.  Here is to having a healthy 87 from here on out.

Penguins Update: Adams a Keeper

00ppfront You won’t find Craig Adams on any All-Star ballots. Nor will you see his name listed among the NHL scoring leaders—or among the top Penguins scorers for that matter. Indeed, his major claim to fame would seem to be his exotic birthplace (Seria, Brunei Darussalam). However, Adams is a rare commodity—a player whose value can’t be fully measured [...]

Penguins Win Ninth in a Row: Blast Bruins 5-2

00ppfront As the old saying goes, “the bigger they are the harder they fall.” The adage certainly held true during Sunday afternoon’s matinee battle between Pittsburgh and Boston. Painting a bulls-eye on mammoth defenseman Zdeno Chara, the Penguins cut the Bruins’ captain and his teammates down to size with a relentless physical assault en route to a 5 [...]

Penguins Trim Panthers 2-1 on Neal’s Shootout Winner

Penguin vs Panthers Mixing it Up Missing three regulars on defense, the Pittsburgh Penguins overcame a spirited effort by the Florida Panthers—not to mention a superb 33-save performance by goaltender Jose Theodore—to capture a hard-earned 2-1 shootout victory at CONSOL Energy Center on Friday night. Leading the way was Marc-Andre Fleury, who stopped 28 shots to pace the whi [...]

Dupuis Shines as Penguins Rake Leafs 3-2

00ppfront With temperatures hovering magically at 66 degrees, the Penguins unveiled a magnificent statue of their owner and all-time greatest player, Mario Lemieux, at a special midday ceremony on Wednesday outside of CONSOL Energy Center. Too bad Mario didn’t fare as well in the NBC Hockey Network broadcast booth that evening. Indeed, when No. 66 join [...]

Can A Single Statue Honor Everything Mario Lemieux Has Done?

Lemieux Statue Today’s unveiling was almost perfect. One thing that would have made it perfect would have been the absence of the woman next to me who kept yelling, “WE CAN’T HEAR YOU,” and we were only 10 rows deep from the barrier. I can’t imagine what fans stacked all the way back to Washington Place thought was going on whe [...]

Mario Lemieux Bronzed

00ppfront Long before the green was out in the store windows, the Pens had what was labeled the Irish Line. For about a week, Kennedy, Sullivan and O’Reilly laced up together. Well, that line didn’t last long and neither did O’Reilly’s time in Pittsburgh, yet have no fear, thanks to the marketing gurus and retail proprietors, we can sport some Irish gr [...]
