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 [...]

Penguins Cap-Sized

The trend, unfortunately, continues. Once again our Penguins fell prey to a key Metropolitan Division rival. A larger, more physical one to boot.

Penguins Quiet at Trade Deadline

For Penguins fans expecting a blockbuster, it must’ve been a disappointing day. Quiet, too.

The Penguins signed defenseman Olli Maatta to a six-year contract extension yesterday. The $24.5-million deal, which starts next season, will pay Maatta an average annual salary of $4.083 million through 2021-22. A bold move for a team more noted for trading young players than developing them. “It feels awesome,” Maatta told the Penguins web [...]

Penguins Update: Lovejoy’s Injury May Alter Deadline Approach

Poor Ben Lovejoy. He can’t seem to escape the eye of the storm. A year ago, the veteran defenseman’s arrival at the trade deadline created an unintended stir.
