Time to review my round 2 picks and look at my predictions for the Conference Finals. I went 75% again. Kudos again to the West for playing along! And, in the East, well…apparently no one told Tampa that they weren’t supposed to still be in the game.
Again, not a whole lot for me to say about how things went in the West. I [...]
It’s time to take a look back at my own predictions and see how I did. And, since I went 6-2, I have a little tweaking to do for the second round.
I know that we’re five days until the second round, but this will have to do given that it started the day after the Pens season ended. I needed a couple of days to get out of that pos [...]
Another season, another heck of a ride. It’s not the ride we feared we were in for back in October. It’s not the ride we were thrilled to be on in November. It’s not the one that punched us in the gut both in early January and again in February. The roller coaster that we rode with this team from mid February until last [...]

*Penguins signed 36 year old winger Steve Sullivan from Nashville for $1.5 mil [...]
Backed by the shutout goaltending of 41-year-old marvel Dwayne Roloson and a timely tally by Sean Bergenheim, the Lightning staved off a late charge by the Penguins to take Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals set 1-0.
It was playoff hockey at its finest as the rivals treated the partisan crowd of 18,507 at CONSOL Energy Center to a [...]
I know it’s probably considered heresy in these parts to criticize Penguins coach Dan Bylsma. After all, the guy won a Stanley Cup in his first season behind the bench. He’s already won more playoff games than any other skipper in franchise history. A terrific motivator, he richly deserves the Jack Adams Trophy for keeping the team on course [...]
Tonight the Penguins need to hit somebody. I’m not talking the soft checks the Pens have been throwing the last two games. I’m talking the Brooks Orpik type teeth rattling check he threw at Steven Stamkos the first game. For the last two games the Penguins have let Tampa skate in and around the net without consequences. It’s [...]
Paced by Dwayne Roloson’s sparkling 27-save performance and clutch goal scoring, Tampa Bay outslugged the gritty Penguins 4-2 to force a winner-take-all Game 7 in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night.
Determined to rebound from an 8-2 shellacking in Game 5, the Penguins capitalized on a puckhandling gaffe by Roloson to snatch the lead at 8:23 of the [...]
Drastic times call for drastic measures! The Pens power play is mired in drastic times. Coach Dan needs to take drastic measures to make the power play even remotely effective. I am not sure what the answer is, but I would start with taking Kris Letang off of the number one unit. He is trying too hard, gripping the stick too hard or whate [...]
The Penguins that will be wearing the Penguin uniform on the ice tonight and the coaches that will be standing behind them have played half a season without Crosby. They have worked their asses off to get the tiny crumb of respect that the media has given them. Why are Penguin fans not giving them any respect?
I’m sorry, today’s G [...]
