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 [...]

Plug ‘N’ Play Penguins Crown Kings 3-2

00ppfront Boasting an injury list that would keep a hospital staff fully employed, the plug ‘n’ play Penguins continue to find a way. Paced by Marc-Andre Fleury’s 24 saves and timely scoring from Chris Kunitz, the Steel City sextet staged a late rally at the Staples Center Saturday night to nip the Kings in a shootout. The contest featured a match-up o [...]

Penguins Update: Size Matters

00ppfront In the wake of the post-lockout rule changes, there’s a popular notion that demon speed prevails in the new NHL. The Penguins certainly have subscribed to that theory. Over the past few summers they’ve allowed bigger players like Hal Gill and Mike Rupp to leave town, while adding a host of quick but vertically challenged skaters. A note to th [...]

Sharks Put the Bite on Penguins 4-3

00ppfront Okay, so it ain’t exactly “the Streak,” when the Penguins went a dismal 0-39-3 in Philadelphia over an infamous 15-year stretch. But the black and gold extended its winless skein in San Jose to 10 games (0-8-2) on Thursday night with a heartbreaking 4-3 shootout loss at the Shark Tank (HP Pavilion). In many ways the contest brought out the be [...]

Penguins History: Colin Campbell

pp0428 It’s somewhat ironic that former Penguin Colin Campbell earned lasting fame while serving as the NHL’s czar of discipline. After all, the rugged little defenseman was no stranger to the penalty box. Over the course of a 636-game NHL career that spanned 11 seasons he piled up 1,292 penalty minutes. Described in an early scouting report as “squ [...]

Maple Leafs Topple Penguins in a Thriller

00ppfront In a game befitting a clash of Eastern Conference titans, the Penguins and Maple Leafs put on a show Saturday night for the 19,526 fans in attendance at Air Canada Centre. Powered by Jonas Gustavsson’s 34-save effort and NHL scoring leader Phil Kessel’s 10th goal of the season, the Leafs prevailed 4-3 in a riveting, seesaw battle. Toronto was [...]

Penguins Catch a Wave, Surge Past Islanders 3-2

Penguins vs Islanders 10/27/2011 During the course of Thursday night’s telecast of the Penguins-Islanders game, it was duly noted that the black and gold hadn’t earned a comeback victory in quite a while. Almost on cue, the Pens rallied from a two goal third-period deficit to scrape past the Islanders in a shootout. Squaring off with the Isles for the second time in three ni [...]

When you break it down scientifically, the numbers never lie

With their methodical 3 – 0 victory over the New York Islanders last night at the Nassau County Colosseum, the Penguins now find themselves with a 7-2-2 record after 11 games, a pace, if kept up, that would see them record 119 points and surely the top overall seed going into the playoffs.  Now none of us expects them to continue at thi [...]
