Bolts Jolt Penguins in Game 4, Even Series

Penguins’ fans were treated to a classic two-fer last night in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. As in two games rolled into one. The first part? Not so good. Playing with their backs to the wall, the Tampa Bay Lightning employed an aggressive forecheck to snatch the momentum and pile up a 30-22 edge in shots on goal through 40 minutes [...]

Penguins Kessel Shines on Big Stage

Phil Kessel isn’t your stereotypical hockey player. Indeed, in a sport dominated by athletes with lean, chiseled physiques, the round-faced Penguins’ winger sort of resembles your Uncle Walt.

The Lightning forward had blown past Murray’s teammate, Brian Dumoulin, at the Tampa Bay line to gain free and clear access to the Pens’ net. The Thunder Bay native was the only obstacle between Killorn and a certain go-ahead goal. Murray [...]

Penguins Stumble to Game 1 Loss

It may be a bit of an understatement to suggest that things didn’t go well for our Penguins last night. Indeed, after watching them stumble to a 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals at Consol Energy Center, one might be tempted to ask if the magic dust has worn off our glorious postseason run. Yes, the boys rang u [...]
