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 [...]

Jets Soar Past Penguins 2-1

00ppfront Following three dismal losses to open the season, Winnipeg Jets coach Claude Noel threw down the gauntlet for his struggling young team. “If they think this [the move from Atlanta] gives them an excuse to fail,” he fumed, “they’ve got another thing coming.” Apparently the Jets got the message. Playing before a frenzied sellout crowd at the MT [...]

Sabres Surprise Sloppy Penguins 3-2

Penguins vs. Sabres Oct 2011 Entering Saturday night’s contest at CONSOL Energy Center with Buffalo, the Penguins felt good about their chances. After all, the black and gold had dominated Lindy Ruff’s squad in recent seasons (15-4-1) and were riding a six-game winning streak against the Sabres to boot. However, the Penguins shot themselves in the foot with a stinker of [...]
