In about 2 weeks, most countries will be announcing their rosters for the 2010 Winter Olympics, and the early word is that there could be as many as seven Penguins picked to play. For Canada, Sid is a lock, Fleury has certainly played his way onto the squad, and Jordan Staal is a long shot. For Russia, Malkin and Gonchar are definites, and [...]
If you scroll down the page a bit, you will see a post titled “When is Fleury Going to Win a Game?”. Well, tonight was the night. Fleury played awesome. He was the primary reason the Pens got out of this game with a win.
To their credit, the Flyers came out flying tonight. They looked like a different team. Maybe it was the fa [...]
There is a rumor going around the internet from a so called reliable source that Flyers Jeff Carter Slept with Scotty Hartnell’s wife and that is the reason that their locker room is split. We are here to set the record straight, it was not Hartnell’s wife, apparently Hartnell & his wife look the same from the back side.
The P [...]
You have to wonder what made the Flyers think that they could beat the Penguins by intimidating them. Ashem, Cote and Carcillo “three very talented hockey players”, think that they have to fight to keep their jobs in the NHL. Imagine that. They should realize that the Flyers need them to score goals in order for them to win hoc [...]
The Penguins practiced today with Malkin at the point on the power play. The Penguins play Philadelphia tonight and the last thing the Penguins need would be the Flyers being able to cheap shot them without any recourse. The Penguin power play is ranked 29th out of 30 in the NHL. The number one power play in the league at 24% has forward O [...]
The Penguins have a record of 22-10-1. One point behind the Capitals, and even with the Devils in the East. When you look at all of the things that are going on with this team, injury-wise and stat-wise, you have to wonder — how did they achieve this outstanding record? On the injury chart — Talbot has missed 2/3 of the season, [...]
Watching the refs lose sight of the puck and negate a goal for the Canadians on Thursday night which would have tied the score up late in the game, I started to wonder when the last time Marc-Andre Fluery won a game for the Penguins. I’m not talking about him putting a W in his win column, Fleury is ranked 2nd in the league in that. I& [...]
The first thing that comes to mind after having watched the Pens get 41 shots on goal tonight is; what is going to happen when more of these many opportunities start going in the net? The Penguins are shooting the puck with great frequency. It just seems that the shots are not going in with as much frequency as everyone would like. It is ju [...]
Philadelphia Flyers fired their coach John Stevens. I guess maybe the GM would like them to have a playoff spot.
As a matter of fact, 3 of the 4 teams the Penguins ousted from the playoffs last year would not be in the playoffs right now if the playoffs started today. Detroit, Philadelphia and Carolina are all below the Mendoza line. The [...]
