The NHL network may have jumped the gun on this one a little being 50+ games left and all. Though I’m pretty sure the goal of the year by Steven Stamkos will stick at #1. Sidney Crosby had the #7 and #5 goals and I didn’t find them all that exciting, but I’ve been watching him do that stuff game after game for years now. [...]
I want to give the Capitals their due as they are a very good hockey team. They have so much talent all through their line-up. The only weakness that anyone might find is the goaltending, but Theodore has been playing well lately — maybe that problem is solved.
Are they really 17 points better than anyone else in the East? I decide [...]
Maybe the closed door meeting held by the players after the horrible performance against the Lightning helped, or maybe it was something else. The Pens played a better game today against the Thrashers. The win was made a bit better when considering that Atlanta is a team scrapping for a playoff berth and that former Penguin goalie Johan Hed [...]
The Penguins had a big “closed door” meeting to discuss what needs fixed after that horrendous performance against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night. Whatever they came up with can be fixed with two words: Malkin & Gonchar. These two are coming back and not a minute too soon.
I’m not calling this a no brainer [...]
If anyone believes that the Penguins were out-worked Wednesday night by the Lightining, think again. The Lightning did NOT have to work to win that game. They just had to show up. The next time that the Penguins decide ‘as a group’ to go through the motions for 6O minutes, I would prefer if one of them would call me so that I t [...]
On April 8, the Pittsburgh Penguins will be having more than 50 former players, coaches & GM’s take to the ice for the final regular season game at the Mellon Arena one week from now. While the list so far is impressive in itself, I have a few questions about some old favorites and whether they will be there or not. I know Ron Franc [...]
The Pittsburgh Penguins are taking on the Tampa Bay Lightning at home tonight and for the second game in a row, if the Penguins win, they mathematically eliminate their opponent from the playoffs. Evgeni Malkin and Sergei Gonchar have been back practicing with the Pens and Sergei Gonchar had been penciled back into the lineup after his bout [...]
The Pittsburgh Penguins announced that defenseman Kris Letang was signed for four more years and seriously it’s about time Ray Shero started shoring up the Penguins defense for the future or for next year which ever comes first. The Sergei Gonchar vs Ray Shero signing has taken center stage and because of that there hasn’t been mu [...]
In February of last year we had a very talented, under-achieving tenth place hockey team. A team that had been to the Stanley Cup Finals the previous season. An 18-3-4 finish to the regular season catapulted them to fourth in the East and gave them the confidence that they could beat any team in any fashion. Right now we have a hockey team [...]
There are 2 weeks left in the NHL regular season, and currently the Penguins sit 2nd in the Eastern Conference. The Washington Capitals have pretty much locked up the the #1 seed so 2nd is the best the Penguins can hope for, and they need to do everything in their power to make sure they get it. New Jersey, currently sitting in 4th, is only [...]
