Penguins Rutherford Deserves Praise

PC_140606_098i5_jim_rutherford_sn635-450x252 I’ll be honest. Jim Rutherford wasn’t my choice to succeed Ray Shero as the Penguins’ general manager back in the summer of 2014. I’m not sure he was the Pens’ top choice, either. The club was considering associate GM Jason Botterill and analyst Pierre Maguire, among others, before JR emerged—seemingly from left field—to win the job. Now? It [...]

Penguins Stun Capitals for Sixth-Straight Win

pp0594 As I took my seat at the Pennsbury Pub and Grille last night to view the Penguins-Capitals game on the big screen, I felt an odd blend of excitement tinged with trepidation.

pp0592 Bam. BAM. Emerging from their corner at the opening bell last night, the Penguins got tagged right on the kisser with the ol’ one-two. Scarcely five minutes into their Metro Division tilt with Carolina at the CONSOL, the hosts were down by a pair and reeling on the canvas. They didn’t stay down for long. Paced by a two-goal effort from Sidne [...]

Penguins Update: Wilson on the Shelf

pp0591 The Penguins’ drive to the playoffs took another hit today. Coach Mike Sullivan revealed this morning that left wing Scott Wilson will be out long-term. Although the nature of the injury was not disclosed, it’s believed to involve Wilson’s right foot or ankle. “Scott is going to need surgery,” Sullivan told Jenn Menen [...]
