Hot Rangers Melt Slumping Penguins 3-1

00ppfront When the Penguins and New York Rangers clashed at CONSOL Energy Center on Friday night, it was a definitive case of two teams headed in opposite directions. While the streaking Rangers (8-1 in their last nine) had scaled to the top of the overall standings, the skidding Pens (7-7 since Nov. 29) were struggling to keep pace in the race for Atl [...]

Follow Up: Derek Boogaard

Derek-Boogaard At the start if the season, I did a look at those the hockey world tragically lost in 2011, including Derek Boogaard.  In early December, The New York Times ran a three-part series that had spent six months looking at the life and death of the NHL enforcer. It’s worth the time to read the lengthy pieces as the debate continues over what [...]

Sidney Crosby Needs to Re-Think Hockey

Sidney Crosby If your the best hockey player on the planet the whole idea of re-imagining your game probably sounds like a poor idea at best.  If you are the best player on the planet who has been injured and only able to play a handful of games over the course of a year then maybe it’s time to re-invent yourself. Three games back from his 10 1/2 mo [...]

Penguins History: Battleship Kelly

Battleship Kelly In the annals of Penguins history, perhaps no player cultivated a more fearsome reputation—or earned a more colorful nickname—than left wing Bob “Battleship” Kelly. “Kelly was the guy who took care of everybody,” former Pens teammate Rick Kehoe recalled. “He was our enforcer.” Fighting was his stock in trade, and few players of his era did it [...]

Leafs Trade former Penguin Luca Caputi to the Ducks

00ppfront Toronto has shipped out former Penguin prospect Luca Caputi to the Anaheim Ducks for prospect, Nick Deschamps. Looks like Shero knew what he was doing when that was all he gave up for Alexei Ponikarovsky. In 26 games with Toronto, Caputi had 1 Goal and 5 assists.

Penguins Update: Don’t Forget the Kids

00ppfront In the wake of the Penguins’ recent loss to the Flyers, I was struck by the pronounced difference in the makeup of the teams. While the Pens’ lineup was generously stocked with 30-somethings (nine to be exact), Philly featured a bevy of talented young forwards who are in their early twenties, including NHL scoring leader Claude Giroux, Sean C [...]

Baby Penguins Update: January 1, 2012

00ppfront Here’s a quick glance at how the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins are faring. The Baby Pens have a record of 18-10-5, good for third place in the East Division (AHL Eastern Conference). Stats are updated through December 31, 2011. Forwards and Defensemen               Player Pos Age GP G A PTS PIM +/- Colin McDonald RW 26 [...]

Devils Sting Slumbering Penguins 3-1

00ppfront Perhaps it was fitting that the Penguins closed out 2011 the way it began—with a disappointing 3-1 loss. After all, the year was none too kind to the boys from the ‘Burgh. Starting with Sidney Crosby’s concussion on New Year’s Day and continuing with a spate of misfortune to rival the Ten Plagues of Egypt, the Pens endured more than their sha [...]

23 Years ago today

00ppfront Against this very same New Jersey Devils team in a game that also started at 3:00, Mario Lemieux scored 5 goals 5 different ways(Even Strength, Power Play, Short Handed, Penalty Shot and Empty Net) in a feat that has never been duplicated. I was lucky enough to have been at that game. Where were you when it happened?

Jagr, Talbot Silence Penguins 4-2

Pens vs Flyers Through the years Pittsburgh fans have become accustomed to watching Jaromir Jagr score big goals. So it was nothing new, really, to see No. 68 find an open patch of ice and whip his patented backhander past an opposing goalie. Trouble is, the one-time Penguins’ great accomplished the feat Thursday night at the CONSOL Energy Center while wear [...]
