Penguins Game Four Loss: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

pp0458 In the wake of the Penguins’ brutal 4-3 overtime loss to Columbus in Game 4, I decided to summarize the team’s Jekyll-and-Hyde performance by breaking it down into three categories: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. THE GOOD – The First Period (or at least the first 11 minutes): The Pens looked fast, crisp and confident as they bolted to [...]

Penguins Update: Sid and Geno by the Numbers

pp0457 There seems to be a growing perception among Penguins fans that superstars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin haven’t done much in the playoffs since achieving total domination during the black-and-gold’s Cup run of 2009. This prompted me to do a little research. Here are Crosby and Malkin’s postseason numbers since ’09, including Games 1-3 of t [...]

Penguins Update: What a Comeback

pp0456 WOW. That was my initial reaction to the Penguins’ stunning 4-3 win over Columbus in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on Monday night. After spotting the Blue Jackets an early two-goal lead, the Pens erupted for four goals in the final 20 minutes and change to snatch a dramatic victory from the jaws of certain defeat. Just as im [...]

Game Two Loss a Microcosm of What Ails the Penguins

pp0455 There’s an old saying—idle hands are the devil’s workshop. It also applies to the Penguins when they play with a lead. Who knows what evil lurks in the minds of our Pens (and the coaching staff) when they’re up by a goal or two? Saturday night’s galling Game 2 loss to Columbus in double overtime was a prime example. Early in the second period [...]

Penguins Update: Time to Sit Scuderi

pp0454 Few decisions in sports are more gut-wrenching than choosing whether or not to bench a time-honored veteran. But the Penguins face such a dilemma with defenseman Rob Scuderi. To put things in perspective, the black and gold never would have hoisted the Stanley Cup in 2009 without Scuderi. Who can forget his game-saving play in the waning seco [...]

Penguins Golden in 4-3 Win

pp0453 In the hit movie Forrest Gump, Tom Hanks’ character famously uttered the phrase, “Life is like a box chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna’ get.” Lately, that saying’s reminded me a lot of our Penguins. You truly never know what you’re going to get. Take their scintillating 4-3 “gold out” victory over Columbus in Game 1 of the Eastern [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Columbus Blue Jackets 2014 Playoff Predictions

pp0450 The Pittsburgh Penguins start the first round of the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs against a Columbus Blue Jackets team who have played in the NHL for 14 years and have yet to win a playoff game.  Should be a slam dunk right? We’ve put together an incredible group of writers to predict how the series will pan out and at the same time throw [...]

Ex-Penguins Update: Final 2013-14 Stats

pp0406 Here’s a quick glance at how former Penguins fared during the 2013-14 regular season. (more…)

Penguins Dodge a Bullet

pp0445 At least one good thing resulted from the Penguins’ sloppy 4-3 overtime loss to archrival Philadelphia in the latest installment of the Commonwealth Cold War. The Flyers eliminated themselves as an opening-round opponent for the black and gold. Heck, if I were Flyers coach Craig Berube I would’ve kept goalie Ray Emery on the bench to start ov [...]

Up-and-Down Penguins Hard to Predict

pp0444 As the star-crossed 2013-14 season mercifully draws to a close, there’s one question on the mind of every black-and-gold fan. Are the Penguins legitimate Stanley Cup contenders? It sure is hard to tell. Talk about a roller coaster. On March 30 the Pens hammered Chicago with a lethal combination of ferocity and skill. Two nights later they rol [...]
