Pens to meet up with the Wild and Sykora tonight, or not

00ppfront I’m pretty sure if you go into any 7/11 in the Minneapolis area right now and purchase a carton of milk you will see a picture of ex-Penguin Peter Sykora on it.  What has happened to the talented sniper who once patrolled the wing at times on both Crosby’s and Malkin’s lines?  We all know about the goal less drought he went [...]

Lets Not Be Those Kinds of Fans

pp0155 Last night at the Flyers game the boo birds came out at the end of both of the Penguins powerplays. This is the kind of behavior more befitting a Philadelphia fan. I realize that the 5 or so home games right after Christmas that there are way more fans at the games that do not usually go to the games. It is a younger crowd, many of which rece [...]

Penguins Continue Struggles Against the Dreaded Flyers

00ppfront So, I am very excited to go down to the Mellon Arena to see the Pens play the Philadelphia Flyers last night.  I remembered to bring my tickets with me to work, as I don’t often get out early enough to make it home before heading down to the game.  As it turns out, I get out early, so I head straight from work to a tavern near the arena [...]

Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin ?

pp0154 The Olympics are going to be here before you know it.  We here at PenguinPoop have a question for you. If Evgeni Malkin’s team takes on Sidney Crosby’s team, which team will you be rooting for to win the game? There are many things to take into consideration before just throwing your vote in. On Sidney Crosby’s side you have [...]

Penguins Beat Thrashers: Ho, Hum

00ppfront The Penguins playing the Atlanta Thrashers amidst this five game slide is the absolute best medicine they could have gotten. The Pens are 9-1 against the Thrashers in their past 10 meetings. If this could not get them out of their slump…..nothing would. The Pens showed some signs of getting their “A” game back, though it w [...]

Are you watching the World Junior Championships? You should be!!!

00ppfront I figure if you are a reader of this site that you’re not just a Pens fan but a hockey fan as well.  Well, right now, possibly the best hockey tournament of them all is about to conclude tonight, the World Junior Championships.  It is a multi country tournament for players under the age of 20 and takes place every year starting the day [...]

Kunitz out 4 – 6 weeks

00ppfront Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz will undergo surgery to repair a torn abdominal muscle Wednesday and will be sidelined for four to six weeks. Dr. William C. Meyers will perform the surgery in Philadelphia. “Chris has played with this injury for an extended period of time and although it is always difficult to lose a very talented pla [...]

Penguins PP… Who turned the lights out?

00ppfront Any hockey fan with half of a brain knows that the solution to the Pens situation hinges on fixing the PP success rate.  It can’t get any worse than 30th. Goaltending and the attention the PK gets from most teams when combined with the Pens playing the same-old PP with only minor modifications makes it one of the easiest to defend in th [...]

Dear Mike Yeo

pp0153 Dear Mike Yeo, I don’t know if you have noticed but the Pittsburgh Penguin powerplay is officially the worst powerplay in the entire NHL. All of the research that I have done on the subject points to you as being the gentleman in charge of the powerplay. If I am wrong, please stop reading now. I was wondering if you also happened to not [...]

Penguins Lose Another One

00ppfront What has happened to the system that Bylsma implemented when he first became the Penguin’s head coach?  The same system that turned this team around and and led them to the ultimate prize.  The system featured such strategies as a very aggressive forecheck and an emphasis on North and South play.  I am not seeing these things right now.
