Dragnet 2017: The Case of the Missing Penguins

Since last night’s 4-0 loss to the Flyers wasn’t much to write home about, I thought I’d do an abbreviated game summary in the style of the old TV series, Dragnet 1967. Cue the opening music. Sergeant Joe Friday and Officer Bill Gannon, on loan from the LAPD, knock on the front door to the home of Polly Penzfan. Clad in a Penguins toque, Sidn [...]

Penguins Update: So Why Do We Hate the Flyers So Much?

As our Penguins prepare to square off with the Philadelphia Flyers tonight in the latest installment of “The Battle of Pennsylvania,” it occurred to me that many younger fans may not understand or fully appreciate the deeply rooted hatred between the two clubs.

Road Warrior Penguins Muzzle Canucks

It wasn’t supposed to happen this way. Not according to my admittedly flawed crystal ball. Starting with a physical clash with the revenge-minded Winnipeg Jets, the Penguins by all rights should be struggling on this road trip. Not thriving. Road weary, rather than road warriors. Instead, they’ve won five in a row to pull within a point of t [...]

Penguins Slip Past Oilers in Shootout

From opposite sides of the ice, the two players glided toward the faceoff circle. Knees flexed, bent over at the waist, sticks resting across their legs. One clad in Pittsburgh gold, black and white. The other in blue, orange and white. Eighty-seven vs. ninety-seven. The Old Kid vs. the New Kid. Sidney Crosby vs. Connor McDavid. The much ant [...]
