*Feb 24th, 2011: The Penguins have just picked up Alexei Kovalev for a 7th round draft pick. The big question now is whether Craig Adams will give up his number so we can bring back the AK27.
There is a lot of talk right now about the Pens having interest in obtaining the services of Alexei Kovalev. Many sources report this as a possibilit [...]
It was nice to see Billy Guerin retire as a Pittsburgh Penguin. He was only here a short time, but there was a special bond between Billy and the fans. It is not often that a player can leave such an impression on city in such a short time. Billy is one of those special players that can and did.
I was fortunate enough to meet Billy. My co [...]
It seems that if the Pens keep doing what they are doing offensively, which is doing everything thing they can to get two goals against the red hot Halak, and limit the number of bad bounces that end up in their own net, they can come out on top.
To their credit, the Canadiens played a better game today. They actually outshot the Penguins 33 [...]
It’s time for the Penguins to stop tap dancing around and start playing hockey. Hit Somebody, get to the front of the net, clear the front of your net, hit somebody again. Start playing hard nosed, down and dirty, gritty hockey like you know how or take up golf.
The Penguins as a team have dished out more hits than any other team this [...]
All the talk is about Marc-André Fleury’s big shutout as well it should be. How about a big standing ovation for the Penguins defense! They held the Montreal Canadiens to 18 shots on net, the lowest amount of shots on net allowed in the playoffs by the Penguins since they allowed 17 once back in the early 70′s.
It’s that ga [...]
It took all the way until the completion of Game 2 this time before everyone decided to start panicking as opposed to after Game 1 of the Ottawa series. I just get the opinion that most folks in this city, judging by the callers on the talk shows and the letter writers, feel that the Penguins not only will win every series in four games but [...]
Unfortunately, I did not get to watch the whole game as I had to work a particularly long day today. I missed the first period. From the point that I started watching until the end of regulation, I thought the Pens dominated. The overtime period was a little bit different with the Senators showing more determination. Ottawa actually got so [...]
If anyone believes that the Penguins were out-worked Wednesday night by the Lightining, think again. The Lightning did NOT have to work to win that game. They just had to show up. The next time that the Penguins decide ‘as a group’ to go through the motions for 6O minutes, I would prefer if one of them would call me so that I t [...]
A few days ago former 56 goal scorer and Rocket Richard Trophy winner Jonathan Cheechoo was placed on waivers and the Penguins and every other team in the NHL passed on him and his 3 million dollar salary. Cheechoo cleared waivers and joined Ottawa’s AHL minor league team the Binghamton Senators. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been searc [...]
