9schin During the Penguins’ early years the Civic Arena faithful didn’t have a whole lot to cheer about. One of the few bright spots on an otherwise unimposing team was right wing Ken Schinkel.

Penguins Circle the Wagons, Hold Off Hurricanes 3-2

00ppfront In a game packed with all the drama of a classic shoot ‘em up Western, the Penguins overcame penalty woes and a furious last-minute barrage by Carolina to defeat the Hurricanes 3-2 at the RBC Center on Saturday night. Under newly minted coach Kirk Muller, Carolina implemented the aggressive, puck-possession style favored by the Penguins. Inde [...]

Penguins Clip Capitals 2-1

00ppfront Change is good, they say. So perhaps the Penguins felt heartened when they gazed at the Washington bench Thursday night at the Verizon Center and saw steely eyed Dale Hunter perched behind Alexander Ovechkin and company instead of the departed Bruce Boudreau. After all, the Pens had beaten the Capitals just twice in the previous 13 meetings w [...]

Justice is Served, Penguins Nip Canadiens 4-3 in OT

00ppfront Hockey players are taught from the time they lace up their first pair of skates to “play to the whistle.” Following the old adage to the hilt, the Penguins staged a furious rally from a 3-1 deficit Saturday night to beat Montreal on a disputed overtime goal by Kris Letang. In a carryover of their offensive frenzy from Friday night, the Pengui [...]

Penguins Update: He’s Baaaack

00ppfront It’s been a thrill to watch him again, hasn’t it? To see the Penguins’ center dangle with the puck in the slot, work the half-wall on the power play like a virtuoso, and scare the daylights out of opposing goalies with that rapier-like wrist shot. Oh, I’m not talking about Sidney Crosby. I’m referring to No. 71, Evgeni Malkin. Although it’s l [...]
