Penguins Cure Road Woes: Whip Montreal 4-1

I confess. I really wasn’t sure what to expect from our Penguins when they visited the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre last night. Would the chaos that reigned supreme in Monday’s wild 8-7 victory over Washington carry over? Would the wheels fall off the wagon, as they had in the Pens’ previous three road games—all defeats? Thankfully, [...]

Penguins Win Shootout at PPG Paints Corral

“I don’t even know how to assess it,” said Penguins coach Mike Sullivan, when asked about his team’s incendiary 8-7 overtime triumph over Washington last night before an amped-up capacity crowd at PPG Paints Arena. That’s okay, Mike. I’m not sure I can describe it, either. Except to say that in my 40-plus years of watching Penguins hockey, I’ [...]

Penguins Update: Adversity Arrives in the ‘Burgh

It’s hard to decide who looked more morose.

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. Turned out to be a pretty good metaphor for the entire game. At least from a black-and-gold standpoint [...]

Penguins’ Wilson Finds His Niche

It was a pretty goal. A goal scorer’s goal. One born of hustle, desire and determination. Chasing a loose puck through the neutral zone late in the Penguins’ 6-2 victory on Monday night, Scott Wilson streaked past Tampa Bay defenseman Anton Stralman with a jet-pack burst and retrieved the rubber in the Lightning end. Eyeing goalie Andrei Vasi [...]
