Penguins a Special Bunch

It was a milestone game of sorts for our Pittsburgh Penguins. Skating before a raucous sellout crowd at the Verizon Center, the black and gold withstood a furious rally by the home-standing Capitals to pocket their eighth-straight win, courtesy of a stunning backhand tally by captain Sidney Crosby with a minute left in overtime. Thursday nigh [...]

Kuhnhackl Thriving With Penguins

As a youngster growing up in Landshut, Germany, Tom Kuhnhackl had some awfully big skates to fill. His dad, Erich Kuhnhackl, was a larger-than-life figure (6’5” 213) who cut a wide swath across his country’s hockey landscape.

When we squeaked past a woeful Buffalo Sabres squad on the final day of the regular season to literally crawl into the playoffs on our belly. Remember? Now we enter the [...]

Penguins Stay Hot; Melt Rangers in OT

It wasn’t all that long ago that the New York Rangers had the Penguins’ number. Especially goalie Henrik Lundqvist. How times have changed. Exuding a grit and resilience that’s come to typify their efforts under Mike Sullivan, the Penguins overcame two deficits on Sunday–not to mention tired legs–to beat New Yor [...]
