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 [...]

Gameday Poop: Pittsburgh Penguins vs Capitals – 1/21/10

pp0113 How stupid is the NHL? On the ice tonight will be the last 3 Art Ross trophy winners, the Conn Smythe trophy winner, the last 3 Hart Memorial trophy (MVP) winners, the two guys with the highest points per game average for the last 5 years, the Stanley Cup Champions playing the East Division’s number one team and the match up everybody w [...]

Crosby and Ovechkin are Headed Two Different Directions Together

pp0162 Since the 2005/2006 season when Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin vaulted into the NHL there were two things you could count on more than Marion Gaborik getting injured. Crosby was a passer and was always going to have more assists than goals and Ovechkin was a shooter and was always going to have more goals than assists. You can’t c [...]

Is Geno Climbing Out of His Slump?

00ppfront Malkin recorded a hat trick last night in the Penguins victory over the streaking New York Islanders.  This seems like a good thing.  Malkin got a lucky bounce against Vancouver the other night to record his first goal since the 1st grade picnic.  Maybe it was that kind of fortunate bounce that has allowed Geno to loosen his grip on the stick [...]
