Penguins Update: Malkin on the Rise

He’s been skating in Sidney Crosby’s considerable shadow for most of the season. Hiding in plain sight, as the old saying goes. Well, don’t look now. But Evgeni Malkin has quietly been stealing the spotlight of late. Not to mention the club scoring lead. It’s a welcome turnaround from an uneven start to the campaign, when questionable decisi [...]

Penguins Schultz a Bargain

Aside from the fact that they both hail from western Canada, Justin Schultz has little in common with his lone Penguins namesake. Indeed, Dave “the Hammer” Schultz was a ferocious left wing of modest ability who brawled his way to 535 penalty minutes in 113 games with the locals back in the day.

Baby Penguins Update: December 15, 2016

Or more to the point, what’s the matter with Olli Maatta’s skating? A puzzler, to be sure. While the 22-year-old Penguins defenseman still possesses keen instincts and skills, not to mention the c [...]

Penguins Hit Their Stride

Ask any NHL coach or general manager. Ask a player. Heck, ask anyone associated with an NHL team and they’ll tell you. It’s next to impossible to maintain a consistent pace over an 82-game schedule. So much can effect a team. Illness and injuries, for one. Not to mention the occasional slump. Or…like two years ago…an unexpected case of the mu [...]
