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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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,
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 [...]
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. [...]
At the end of the season the Pittsburgh Penguins will have 5 of the seven defensemen currently on the roster go to free agency unless Ray Shero starts signing them. Along with the biggest salary, Sergei Gonchar is the biggest question mark in the bunch. Shero and Gonchar’s agent JP Barry (you know, the guy who snuck Evgeni Malkin out of [...]
