Penguins Impress With 4-3 Win Over Flyers

pp0572 Speed kills. Penguins’ play-by-play announcer Paul Steigerwald bellowed that time-honored line after watching Phil Kessel and Carl Hagelin torch the Flyers on a two-on-one during the third period of last night’s scintillating 4-3 Penguins victory at the Consol. Philly forward and noted Penguin killer Jakub Voracek seconded the notion. “They’r [...]

Penguins Dynamic Duo

pp0571 There’ve been two distinct sets of Sidney Crosbys and Kris Letangs skating for the Pittsburgh Penguins this season. The initial pair languished under previous coach Mike Johnston, combining for a paltry seven goals during the Pens’ first 28 games. Since Mike Sullivan took over?

Dreams of an offensive dynamo were dashed early on as a squad built to score goals struggled to produce under former coach Mike Johnston. Stars like Sidney Crosby experienced epic droug [...]

pp0569 With a couple of days between games and nothing in particular to write about, I thought I’d compare the Penguins’ stats under new coach Mike Sullivan to those compiled under former skipper Mike Johnston. While the impromptu analysis didn’t expose anything earth-shattering, it did reveal a few surprises. First, the expected. Based on the numb [...]
