If you haven’t heard yet, Sergei Gonchar yesterday suffered a broken wrist that will keep him out at least 6-8 weeks and Dan Bylsma announced that recently signed Martin Skoula will be replacing him. Ray Shero signed Skoula to a one year contract on September 29th after Skoula’s crazy summer. Skoula played the last three plus sea [...]
The hockey season is now three weeks old, and we have gotten a glimpse of how teams are shaping up for the 09-10 campaign. Some teams are playing over their heads (NY Rangers), some are just feeling their way into the year (Carolina and Boston), and some have already established themselves as awful (Toronto).
My initial thought [...]
I can remember playing dek hockey where my team was up by 6 or 7 goals and in an effort to minimize embarrassment for the other team, we would play keep away rather than trying to score more goals. That is what it looked like for a good portion of this game. Unfortunately, the Pens were not up by 6 or 7 goals. It would have been nice to se [...]
Saturday October 17th starts the return of the Penguins ugly “Bad Luck” blue jerseys and Penguin management has a plan. The plan is to change the image of the jerseys from bad luck to good luck. How are they going to do that you ask. If you must know, they scheduled the jersey only to be worn against the worst teams in the league. [...]
The Stanley Cup banners are now all in a row!
Here’s a conundrum. Do you touch the cup?
The Penguin Pooper above opted not to touch the cup as to not ruin his chances of winning it someday, while the Penguin Pooper below opted to not only to touch it, but he had his kid touch it also.
Man, did Cam Ward make a couple of amazing glove saves. If he had not, the game most certainly would not have gone to overtime or a shootout. The Pens definitely could have been due for a let down on this five game road trip, but they showed some good character and were able to pull out the shoot-out victory.
It was great to see Kun [...]
Do you think that Tyler Kennedy read my recent post where I challenged his ability to finish. If he did, he apparently set out to prove me wrong tonight. He had two goals tonight. One of those goals was a wonderful slapshot. He is really playing well. In fact, the third line in general is playing consistently well. Even when Staal has sp [...]
I don’t know if Penguin Poop poster STH35′s kid “GotMalkin” spent every minute since the Pens won the cup making this video but it sure looks like it. Mike Lange fans will like how his calls have been edited in. Enjoy! Thanks GotMalkin!
After Kris Letang dropped Scottie Hartnell to the ice like a rag doll last night Hartnell decided to fight like a girl by biting Letangs hand. I do not have Hartnell video but below is the video of Semin’s fight with Jordan Staal’s brother:
We already know which one looks more like a girl the question is:
As is always the case when these two teams get together, the game had a lot to offer. There was some good physical play, exciting moments, a fight, lots of pushing and shoving, some great play and a tight game to the end. I certainly feel like the Pens got back on track tonight. They definitely looked like they came to play. They played be [...]
