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). Still, having reached the halfway mark of the 2016-17 NHL season, I thought it might be kind of enjoyable to do some Penguins projections. There’s no rocket science involved, but some subjectivity. For skat [...]

Penguins Fall to Capitals

“Crap.” That was the only word I could think to utter as I watched Alex Ovechkin cut unimpeded into the slot and whip a bullet past Marc-Andre Fleury a mere 35 seconds into last night’s rivalry matchup between the Penguins and the Capitals.

Penguins’ Wilson Finds His Niche

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 [...]

Penguins Fab Fours

Being an old geezer who loves classic rock ‘n’ roll nearly as much as hockey, I’m a big fan of The Beatles. Groovin’ to the timeless tunes of John, Paul, George and Ringo brought to mind our own Fab Four–Sid, Phil, Tanger and Geno. In honor of the mop-topped Liverpool lads and their Steel City counterparts, I compiled [...]
