Penguins Lose To Lighting: Must Be the Florida Sunshine Blues

00ppfront The way the first period was going, I thought the Pens might score like 10 goals in this game.  Unfortunately, I thought Tampa Bay might score 6 or 7.  The way Pens moved the puck on their first power play was magical.  I could have watched that all night.  On the other hand, Fleury seemed to be very shaky.  He let in the first shot he faced, [...]

The NHL’s Eastern Conference

NHL Eastern Conference logo As we near the end of the first month of the season, let’s take a look at the Eastern Conference.  Fifteen teams, eight will make the playoffs and seven will not.  You only have to look back to last year to see the importance of every point.  The Flyers got into the playoffs on their last game of the season by winning a shootout.  Then [...]

Tales from the Road: Pittsburgh Penguins in Nashville

nashville2 If you follow us on Twitter, you have already seen these pictures.  Or you might have seen the tweets on our Twitter feed on the right hand side of our site.  But, since I’m sure some of you are wondering what Twitter is or cursing it as you read this, I’m posting it here as well.  Phil Krundle, Reg Dunlop, Champ Kind, and their b [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins: Breaking Curses Since 2010

00ppfront How about those Pens?!?!  Breaking the Consol and power play curses in the same weekend!  Just a few quick thoughts: I’m glad to see that the league did the right think and revoked Letang’s 5 minute major and game misconduct.  This means that he will have a clean slate and that his next violation of the hit to head rule will not [...]

Sidney Crosby is off to the worst start in his NHL career

Sidney Crosby Through five games Sidney Crosby has less points than at the beginning of any of his 6 NHL seasons. The Penguins aren’t quite ready to send him down to the minors, but there seems to be something missing from Crosby’s game. Each year it would seem that Sidney Crosby adds something to his repertoire. Last year he worked on his shot [...]

Penguins Finally Get First Win at Console

00ppfront All it took was for the Islanders to come to town without their three best players.  The Pens still look terribly sloppy.  Hopefully, it doesn’t take much longer before they begin to gel. Brent Johnson looked good again.  I  certainly am not a Fleury basher, but Johnson has the only victories.  I like Fleury and I think he is the guy, b [...]

Penguins Cannot Afford Home Losses

00ppfront      For just the fourth time in Penguin history, the Pens have started the season 0-3 at home.  The other three times that happened, it was somewhat expected.  This year in the brand new CEC it was not.  All three losses have been earned in basically the same fashion — poor passing, poor puck management, poor powerplays, and poor goalt [...]

So Much for Home Sweet Home: Pens Lose to Maple Leafs

00ppfront 14 shots on goal….4 goals ….and I am not necessarily blaming Fleury Why can’t the Pens play with the same intensity that they have with one minute remaining and down by a goal, for any other part of the game? The difference between a winning team and a losing team is the difference between Clarke MacArthur burying a nice pas [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins Eric Tangradi the New Number 26

tangradi The Pittsburgh Penguins’ final piece from the Ryan Whitney trade, Eric Tangradi has appeared to have finally landed for good. Here are some hockey adjectives that have been used by people in the hockey world to describe the rookie power forward from of all places Philadelphia:  high hockey IQ, gritty, net front presence, intense, and de [...]

Penguins Break Losing Streak Against the Devils

00ppfront As disheartning as it may have been to see the Pens lose their first two games at the CEC, it was that much of a relief that they beat the New Jersey Devils yesterday afternoon.  The Pens lost all 8 games against the Devils last season, so it is like getting that perverbial monkey off your back by beating the Devils last night.  The bad news [...]
