Sidney Crosby is Back, Has the NHL Made it a Safer League?

Devo & Sid It’s been about 11 months since hockey fans have seen the NHL’s best player Sidney Crosby play. With his return to the Pittsburgh Penguins Lineup tonight versus the New York Islanders. I thought it would be a good time to take a look at the changes, if any, the NHL has made to protect players since the beginning of January. On Ja [...]

Panthers Pounce on Skidding Penguins 3-2

00ppfront Each year the Penguins invite the fathers to join their sons on a road trip. And while the “Dads’ Trip” is undoubtedly one of the most popular events of the season, the Pens’ brass may want to consider inviting the moms next time in the wake of this year’s 0-for-Florida trip. Determined to atone for Thursday night’s disappointing loss to Tamp [...]

Bolts Zap Punchless Penguins 4-1

00ppfront If you’d spent the past six months marooned on a tropical island and tuned into the Penguins-Lightning game at St. Pete Times Forum on Thursday night, you’d have sworn you were watching an extension of last spring’s Eastern Conference Quarterfinals match-up. Employing their nettlesome 1-3-1 trap to perfection, coach Guy Boucher’s crew rode th [...]

Penguins Bury Avalanche 6-3

Penguins vs. Avalanche Beware all you unsuspecting NHL clubs. The banged-up Penguins are finally getting healthy. With 20-goal man Tyler Kennedy returning to action (and Sidney Crosby sure to follow), the Pens spotted Colorado a 3-1 lead before roaring back to dismantle the Avalanche, 6-3, at CONSOL Energy Center. Paced by rising star Matt Duchene, the frisky Avs p [...]

When is Sidney Crosby returning?

Sidney Crosby The Penguins have afforded Sidney Crosby all the time he needs.  There are many documented cases of players around the NHL coming back to soon after concussions. It would be stupid to push Sidney Crosby back onto the ice too soon at a time when the Penguins are tied for the lead in the Eastern Conference and have lost the least amount of game [...]

Penguins Need More from Martin

00ppfront Through the first 17 games of the season Paul Martin has, quite literally, served as the Penguins’ defensive anchor. He’s registered a team-worst plus/minus rating of minus-11—and it’s sinking fast. On a club packed with overachievers Martin sticks out like a sore thumb, for all the wrong reasons. This could hardly be what Pens general manage [...]

Stars Neal to Penguins 3-1

Matt Cooke In a battle for overall supremacy in the league standings, the Penguins overcame an early deficit and two no-goal calls to torpedo Dallas 3-1 Friday night before a sellout throng at CONSOL Energy Center. Pacing the Pens’ attack was ex-Star James Neal, who came back to haunt his former team with a pair of power-play goals. “Of course when you [...]

Book Review of “Behind the Moves: NHL General Managers Tell How Winners are Built”

00ppfront For anyone who’s ever fancied himself as a closet general manager, Behind the Moves: NHL General Managers Tell How Winners Are Built is an absolute must read. Frankly, I was floored by the depth and sheer volume of information packed into this brilliant, one-of-a-kind work. Nestled within its 252 crisply designed pages are five main parts: Th [...]

The Pittsburgh Penguins: Big on Talent, even Bigger on Heart

078 In this day and age of negativity, it is not often you get to witness the nicer side of sports.  Thanks to Dick’s Sporting Goods and Jennifer Mercer and Matt Ciesluk of Catalyst Public Relations, I was able to witness the pure unadulterated joy that professional athletes can bring to children through the Pittsburgh Penguins’ parti [...]
