The Penguins MUST win a game in the Detroit Red Wing’s Joe Lewis Arena to win Lord Stanley’s Cup, it is that simple. Tonight the energized and confident Penguins are looking to repeat what happened in the Washington Capital series by winning their third game in a row after being down two. Detroit will be the one playing desperatio [...]
Could it be that the Penguins have “broken” another goaltender. Eight times in the eighteen playoff games that Osgood has played, he has let in a goal or less. This includes games 1 and 2 against the Pens where he allowed just one goal in each game. In the last two games Pittsburgh has found the back of the net eight times. Th [...]
The pre-game storyline hype for tonight are mostly about Marian Hossa scoring 2 goals in another game 4 and that Pavel Datsyuk practiced with his team yesterday. Will Datsyuk play in Game 4 or will they keep him out until Game 5? Will Hossa continue his Game 4 – 2 goal production? If Datsyuk does play will he take some of the defensive pressu [...]
The Pittsburgh Penguins are heading into game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals in the exact way they headed into last years game four, down 2 games to one. The Red Wings won the first two games this year and last year, and this year the Penguins lost game 4. They need to win it this year, The Penguins Must Change the Script. “we know how bi [...]
After three games of the Stanley Cup finals, Red Wings – Penguins II has the same results as last year. Game 4 is where the Penguins have to change the script. In 2008, the Pens failed to capitalize on a couple of five-on-three situations, and eventually came up on the short end of a 2-1 game. This will be the fourth game in six days [...]
Well, maybe the Penguins were shooting too much in the first two games. In both of those games, which were losses, the Pens outshot the Red Wings. Tonight, a victory, the Pens were outshot 29-21. On this night, the Pens made their shots count more as they went on to a 4-2 victory.
The Pittsburgh Penguins played a very physical game tonigh [...]
In order to win the Stanley Cup, every player on the team has to contribute their fair share. Everyone must do what the team needs them to do and more. That is the difference in this series so far. The Red Wings have gotten that type of effort. The Penguins have not. In fact, hardly any Penguin has played up to their capability to date. [...]

Champ Kind ran into Pittburgh Penguin goalie coach Gilles Meloche this morning while on his way to the morning skate and had this to report:
I explained that I had recently w [...]
Alright, This is a must win, the Pens are down but not out, they have looked decent the first two games, but have nothing to show for it. I’m not hearing anything positive from the fans, but my plan is to see one of the greatest comebacks in Penguin history and to have it start with tonights game.
The Penguins have been through this be [...]
The NHL idea of putting it’s most tenured referee’s instead of it’s best referee’s in charge of the nationally televised Stanley Cup Finals is making it fall flat on it’s face. TV rating are down almost 20% over last year, and one of the first places to post that the ratings are down on their website was ESPN. Fo [...]
