Are the Penguins Playoff-Ready?

Not long ago the Penguins were the hottest team in the National Hockey League. Toast of the ‘Burgh. Winners of eight in a row and 14 out of 15. Before a season-ending loss to the Flyers in a meaningless game (for the Pens) splashed a little cold water on the flames. That was then. This is now. It’s a brand-new season. The Stanley Cup playoffs [...]

Penguins End Season on a Sour Note

It was bound to happen. Sooner or later, the Penguins were going to lose a game. As inevitable as death and taxes. Might even do them some good, heading into the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Maybe it’ll be good for ’em to lose one, I reasoned. Get it out of their system before the playoffs begin. The Penguins didn’t agree. Sparked by a typically grimy Patric Hornqvist tally and [...]

Penguins Get Offensive

It ain’t supposed to happen. Not in today’s National Hockey League. One dominated by gargantuan goalies in oversized pads who take away the bottom half of the net simply by dropping to their knees. Our Pittsburgh Penguins have been positively offensive. I’m not referring to on-ice behavior (fourth fewest penalty minutes in the league). I’m t [...]
