Penguins Update: The Recchin’ Ball Crashes the Hall

When the Penguins took Mark Recchi in the fourth round of 1988 Entry Draft, it was hardly a lock he’d make the team, let alone go on to a Hall-of-Fame career. Despite scoring 61 goals during his final season of junior hockey, he was passed over by the 21 NHL teams—including the Pens—not once, but three times. Too small, the scouts whispered. [...]

Penguins Update: Revisiting Ray’s Drafts

In Ray we trust. Remember that axiom? Indeed, it wasn’t all that long ago that former Penguins (and current Devils) general manager Ray Shero was the toast of the town.

The Penguins can finish anywhere from second to fourth and there are three teams not named the Penguins fighting for their playoff lives. Pens winger Alexei Ponikarovsky has been suspended by the NHL for two games for boardi [...]

Pens Bounce Back to Beat Atlanta in Overtime

Maybe the closed door meeting held by the players after the horrible performance against the Lightning helped, or maybe it was something else.  The Pens played a better game today against the Thrashers.  The win was made a bit better when considering that Atlanta is a team scrapping for a playoff berth and that former Penguin goalie Johan Hed [...]
