Penguins Find Identity, Thump Senators 3-2

Desperate times call for desperate measures. The thought no doubt flashed through the mind of Penguins coach Mike Sullivan as he scanned the visitors’ locker room at Canadian Tire Centre following Wednesday’s dismal Game Three loss to Ottawa. He’d just witnessed the Pens’ worst effort since assuming the coaching job 17 months earlier—certainl [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: The Great Goalie Debate

WHOOSH. You could almost hear the lid on the can of worms pop open when Penguins coach Mike Sullivan pulled Marc-Andre Fleury in favor of Matt Murray 13 minutes into our disastrous Game Three loss to Ottawa.

Assuming the role of Avis, the Senators outskated, outworked…heck…pretty much out [...]

Playoff Preview: Penguins Can’t Afford a Letdown

Has it really been ten years since Ottawa schooled an up-and-coming Penguins team in the opening round of the 2007 playoffs? I guess so. Heck, Colby Armstrong, Ryan Malone, Max Talbot and Ryan Whitney—young guns back then—have all retired from the NHL. That doesn’t seem possible, does it? Enough musing. Suffice it to say, there’s a wee bit of [...]
