Penguins Clip ‘Canes 3-2, Snag Second Place in Metro

663847094_slide I was all set to write my summary of Sunday’s 3-2 triumph over Carolina when my community experienced an electrical outage. Plans temporarily short-circuited, I decided to make the best of things and went out for an early morning walk while the utility company restored our power. Reminded me a bit of yesterday’s contest. Although the Penguins [...]

Cole Penguins’ Unsung Hero

662192964_slide He doesn’t have the highest profile among Penguins’ defensemen. Nor the greatest potential. Perhaps the highest pain threshold. Indeed, while his defensive mates have fallen to the right and left, Ian Cole’s stood in the breach each and every game since the start of the regular season. Seventy-seven and counting.

Penguins Head Off Rangers 4-3

662046118_slide Okay, now I’m worried. I’ve purposely refrained from being too hard on our Penguins, given their banged-up state. And there was a lot to like about last night’s 4-3 shootout victory over the Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

Comparatively small, by NHL standards. With a little time to kill between games, I thought I’d do a quickie comparison to see what I could see. Beginning [...]

Blackhawks Scalp Penguins 5-1

660343674_slide Recently, I’ve spent lots of time lamenting the Penguins’ injury woes. And it sure is tough to watch our guys repeatedly take it on the chin. Like last night’s 5-1 loss to Chicago at PPG Paints Arena, a defeat that was equal parts humbling and stinging. Talk about a slap in the face. The Pens have lost four games in a row for the first time s [...]

Penguins Update: Injuries Taking a Toll

658108472_slide “Oh no.” Not very expressive, I’ll grant you. But those were my exact words when the NBCSN cameras showed an up-close-and-personal shot of Penguins forward Conor Sheary grimacing on the bench. Shortly after he blocked a shot during the first period of last night’s dismal 6-2 loss to the Flyers. Followed moments later by the inevitable, soul- [...]
