Sid-sational Penguins Mash Nashville, Grab Series Lead

“He’s done three things tonight I’ve never seen him do before.” Those words were uttered by good friend and Wright’s Gym member Dave Karpinski, shortly after Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby narrowly missed cashing in last night with an improbable, corkscrewing effort. I readily agreed. It seemed to me Crosby was inventing a new move nearly [...]

Penguins Need ‘O’ from ‘D’

A couple of games back Phil Krundle, esteemed founding father of PenguinPoop, opined that the Penguins seem to do a better job of getting pucks and bodies to the net when our defensemen join the attack.

So much for those victory parade plans, at least for the near future. Out [...]

It was theirs for the taking. After scoring the opening goal on a hustling second-effort tally by Jake Guentzel—his 13th of this magical p [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: Ramble On

I confess. When the Penguins beat Nashville in Game Two on Wednesday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Final, I started feeling giddy about our chances to repeat as champions. Then I was reminded that the last team to have a shot at winning back-to-back Cups had gone up 2-zip as well. Indeed, the Detroit Red Wings defeated our Pens [...]
