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 [...]

Fleury Ices Islanders as Penguins Prevail 3-0

00ppfront To borrow a refrain from an old Aerosmith tune, the Penguins’ train kept a rollin’ at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum Tuesday night. Buoyed by the return of superstar Evgeni Malkin and Marc-Andre Fleury’s 20th career shutout, the Pens bounced the New York Islanders 3-0 for their fourth-straight win. If the 10,681 patrons in attendance were [...]

Penguins Update: In Shero We Trust

00ppfront They say confession is good for the soul. And I must confess, here and now, that I was not pleased with the moves made by Penguins’ GM Ray Shero over the summer. (It should be noted the last time I felt this way the Pens won the Stanley Cup.) I grudgingly accepted the defection of one of my all-time favorites, Max Talbot, because I knew pluck [...]

Penguins Bedevil New Jersey 4-1

00ppfront It wasn’t supposed to be this easy for the Penguins. Not with top guns Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin out of the lineup and a murderous schedule that would wear out even the hardiest team of Alaskan sled dogs. But the plucky Pens continue to find a way. Powered by a three-goal third-period outburst and a pair of tallies by Jordan Staal, the [...]

Penguins Near Perfect in 3-1 Win Over Montreal

Asham 700 In the wake of the Penguins’ 3-1 win over Montreal at CONSOL Energy Center Thursday night, Dan Bylsma had every reason to feel positively giddy. Not only did the black and gold prevail over a Canadiens club that has given his team fits the past couple of seasons, but they accomplished the feat precisely the way Bylsma draws it up on the chalk [...]

Gritty Penguins Conquer Wild 4-2

00ppfront A night after suffering perhaps their most disheartening loss of the young season, the gritty Penguins rebounded with an inspired effort to defeat the Minnesota Wild 4-2. The game marked a reunion of sorts. Minnesota GM (and former Pens executive) Chuck Fletcher hired ex-Pittsburgh assistant Mike Yeo, who dumped the Wild’s traditional trap in [...]
