Penguins Update: Farewell to 44

pp0493 I’ll never forget the day then-Penguins GM Craig Patrick chose defenseman Brooks Orpik with the 18th overall pick at the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. Having been fed a steady diet of Robert Domes, Milan Krafts, and Konstantin Koltsovs the selection of Orpik signaled an abrupt change in the Pens’ drafting philosophy. “In the past, we haven’t emphasiz [...]

Penguins Update: Malkin the Magnificent

00ppfront Back in 1963 Avis was determined to pry rent-a-car sales away from its giant rival Hertz. So president Robert C. Townsend devised a catchy new slogan to highlight his company’s underdog status—“We’re Only No. 2. We Try Harder.” Penguins superstar Evgeni Malkin can relate. The gifted center has spent virtually his entire career skating in the [...]

Penguins Malkin-ize Capitals in OT

00ppfront Ever since they were drafted No. 1 and No. 2 overall in 2004, Alex Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin have provided an intriguing contrast in styles—both on and off the ice. While the brash and colorful Ovechkin has grabbed the headlines and endorsement deals, Malkin has quietly gone about his business with a determined excellence. On Sunday afternoo [...]

Penguins Lose To Capitals

The goal scoring race is on The goal scoring race is on I cannot look at losing all of our games against New Jersey and Washington as anything but a negative.  I know Crosby and some others have downplayed the importance of not being swept by an inevitable playoff opponent, but I don’t see it.  I feel that it does not bode well for a playoff matchup. Now, I have h [...]

Gameday Poop: Penguins vs Capitals – Ovechkins Goal Drought

pp0215 If Alexander Ovechkin goes without a goal tonight it will match the second longest drought he has had in his career. Ovechkin has just 1 goal in the seven games since US Marshalls showed up at the Washington Capitals training facility to question players about their ties to the “Steroid Doctor”, Dr. Nagel. I’m not saying tha [...]

Will the Penguins be Ready for the Playoffs?

00ppfront In February of last year we had a very talented, under-achieving tenth place hockey team.  A team that had been to the Stanley Cup Finals the previous season.  An 18-3-4 finish to the regular season catapulted them to fourth in the East and gave them the confidence that they could beat any team in any fashion.  Right now we have a hockey team [...]

Gameday Poop: Penguins vs Flyers – Evgeni Malkin is Out

Max Talbot Goal With a win this afternoon the Penguins would clinch a Stanley Cup Playoff berth and if you could tell me a better way to do it than at home against the dreaded Philadelphia Flyers please let me know. A win would also dampen the Flyers playoff hopes. With all the talk about the Penguins being on a downward slide, not much is being made of the [...]

00ppfront The Washington Capitals are under investigation once again for being involved with steroids. US Marshals were at the Washington Capitals training facility investigating.  Dr. Doug Nagel who may or may not be the Capitals chiropractor was arrested yesterday.  The Capitals are saying “(Dr. Doug Nagel) is not affiliated with the Washington Capit [...]
