Gameday Poop: Pittsburgh Penguins vs Buffalo Sabres – February 1

pp0167 The Pens chased Buffalo Sabre’s goaltender and most likely Team USA’s Olympic starting goaltender Ryan Miller from the game on December 29th by scoring 3 times on 11 shots just to have ex-Penguin Patrick Lalime come in and shut them out the rest of the way. The Pens are looking for a little revenge tonight and Crosby, Malkin & [...]

Gameday Poop: Pittsburgh Penguins vs Detroit Red Wings – January 31

pp0166 Game time is 12:30PM and can be seen in Super HD at the Igloo or on NBC  When the Penguins knocked off the reining Stanley Cup Champs last June, Detroit started to slowly fall apart. It started with Marian Hossa saying he wanted to keep playing in Detroit and then jumping ship for Chicago (sound familiar?) along with the Red Wings Tomas Kope [...]

NHL Trade Deadline Predictor Extraordinaire

00ppfront The NHL Trade Deadline this year is March 3rd, and as you know Ray Shero the Pittsburgh Penguins GM has been very active this time of year the last few years landing players and “rental” players to help the Pens make it to the playoffs. Everyone seems to have a prediction or idea about who the Penguins will be or should be acquiri [...]

Gameday Poop: Pittsburgh Penguins vs Ottawa Senators – January 28

pp0165 Game time is 7:00PM and can be seen in Super HD at the Igloo or on FSN  The Pens take on the red hot Ottawa Senators who have won their last seven games in a row tonight. Maybe I should say the streaky Senators. Before they won seven in a row they lost 5 in a row. When everyone was looking the other way the Senators double secretly amassed qu [...]

Overrated Olympics could cost the Pens another shot

Me like Russian TANK! Are you looking forward to seeing Konstantin Koltsov and how well he does?  Me either.  Can you really Me like Russian TANK! and truly name two players on TEAM Latvia?  I didn’t think you could. You see IMHO this is a mostly overblown event and many of the hockey lemmings jump on the Olympic bandwagon without ……       (more [...]

Penguins Win, Top Rangers 4-2.

00ppfront Back to back wins over the division rival New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers ain’t bad.  It is even more impressive when you consider the games were on back-to-back days.  They did get a few extra hours due to the 12:30 start yesterday, but still….. The Pens played a pretty darn good defensive game tonight.  For much of the game, the Pe [...]

Gameday Poop: Pittsburgh Penguins vs Rangers – January 25

pp0164 Game time is 7:00PM and can be seen in Super HD at MSG or regular HD on Versus Where is Marion Gaborik, where are the Rangers? The Rangers have been shut out in 4 of their last 7 games and are slowly playing themselves out of playoff contention. The big thing going for the Rangers this evening is that the Penguins have yet to ring up a shutou [...]

Gameday Poop: Pittsburgh Penguins vs Flyers – 1/24/10

When Pittsburgh played Philadelphia 17 days ago, Philadelphia played a very disciplined game. Only 7 minor penalties were handed out the whole game.  Philly ended up winning 7-4 and it was the first time I remember Pittsburgh playing Philadelphia without a fight.  Since then Philadelphia has won 5 out of their last 7 including three in a row [...]

Penguins MUST Improve Defensive Play

00ppfront The Penguins are 6-10-0 in their last 16 games.  They are giving up goals at an alarming rate.  58 in this span of games for a 3.63 goals against.  It seems that the only way they can get a victory lately is to score a handful or more of goals, or get a goaltending performance that is above the call of duty.  Against a mediocre New York Islan [...]

Penguins Fall Short Against Capitals

How can the Pittsburgh Penguins lack energy and intensity against the dreaded rival Washington Capitals?  This is a match up that I expected to have similar intensity to that of a playoff game.  This was the first meeting of the season with the Caps, you have the whole Ovechkin vs. Crosby thing, the recent playoff history, all those things th [...]
