Penguins Defenseman Paul Martin’s Numbers Don’t Make the Point

pp0270 The Pittsburgh Penguins  powerplay ranks 23rd in the league.  The Nashville Predators are the only other team in the league that currently holds a playoff spot with a worse powerplay.  This has been a problem all season and is in no way a reflection of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin being out for the last two months.  The Powerplay was horri [...]

Penguins Flatten Florida in Shootout

00ppfront Buoyed by a sensational 37-save effort by Marc-Andre Fleury, the Penguins overcame another sluggish start to edge the Florida Panthers 2-1 in a shootout. The victory established a new NHL record with four consecutive shootout wins. Although the Penguins earned two points to keep the heat on the Flyers, it was hardly an effort to write home ab [...]

Streaking Penguins Dump the Devils

00ppfront Beating the nettlesome New Jersey Devils at their own game, the Penguins rode a 21-save shutout performance by Marc-Andre Fleury to a crisp 1-0 shootout victory over their Atlantic Division foes. The Pens’ third win in a row—all by shootout—narrowed the gap between the Steel City sextet and the front-running Flyers to two points. As a general [...]

Bombs Away: No, Chara, I Didn’t Forget About You

Zdeno-Chara-Max-Pacioretty Just over two weeks ago, Mike Murphy handed down one of the biggest joke decisions in supplementary discipline when he decided that the Bruins’ Zdeno Chara should receive no fine or suspension for his hit the night before on the Canadiens’ Max Pacioretty.  I bring this up again for several reasons.   First, the Habs and Bruins mee [...]

Penguins History: Dave Schultz – If I Had A Hammer

pp0430 During the summer of 1977, popular enforcer Bob “Battleship” Kelly signed a free-agent deal with Chicago, leaving the Penguins without a protector. Although general manager Baz Bastien imported rugged players Colin Campbell, Bob Paradise, and Brian Spencer to help with the policing chores, the Pens quickly fell prey to imposing cl [...]

Penguins Clip Red Wings in a Shootout

It wasn’t the prettiest of wins–certainly not one Dan Bylsma and the Penguins’ coaching staff will use for instructional video. However, given the fact that the Pens triumphed in the Motor City after blowing a 4-0 second-period lead, they’ll gladly take the two points. Following a disappointing loss to the Rangers on Sunday, the Penguin [...]

NHL Policy Forces Mario and the Penguins to Employ a Matt Cooke

Matt Cooke The media can “spin” the problems of the NHL onto Mario Lemieux’s shoulders all they want, but when push comes to shove, the NHL will still be the one that needs to correct their problem, not Mario. Until the NHL fixes the problem of leaving players to “police themselves” the Pittsburgh Penguins need to employ th [...]

Rangers Power Past Penguins

Taking full advantage of overlapping third-period penalties, the Rangers rode a pair of power-play goals to a 5-2 victory over the Penguins before a sellout matinee crowd at the CONSOL Energy Center. The Pens, who outshot the Blueshirts 40-27 while holding a decided edge in territorial play, deserved a better fate. James Neal set the tone on [...]
