Penguins Pay a Steep Price for Victory

September 29, 1973. Brantford (Ontario) Civic Centre. The Pittsburgh Penguins squared off against their arch-nemesis—the truculent St. Louis Blues—in an NHL exhibition game. Early in the second period all hell broke loose. The Pens’ pint-sized policeman Bryan Watson—an early version of Bobby Farnham—was hunched forward into the wheelhouse of [...]

Penguins Shuffle Forwards

Anticipating the return of forwards Eric Fehr and Carl Hagelin, the Penguins sent Conor Sheary to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton following practice yesterday. Fehr has missed the past 17 games with a lower-body injury sustained against Ottawa on February 2. The Pens were 9-7-1 during the big forward’s absence.

Penguins Rattle Lundqvist: Dump Rangers 4-1

Oh no. Here we go again. Those were my thoughts last night as I watched the Rangers celebrate Chris Kreider’s second-period goal on the big-screen TV at Wright’s Gym. Indeed, the game was following an all-too-familiar script. An on-ice version of the movie Groundhog Day, where the same scenario keeps repeating. One that’s resulted in a horrid [...]
