Penguins History: When Durby and Battleship Ruled

I was going about my business last Tuesday when a good friend, Tom Blanciak, reminded me that it was the 44th anniversary of one of the most epic games in Penguins history. Given that it’s All-Star weekend and there isn’t a whole lot to write about, I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane. So step into the WABAC Machine with me and enjoy t [...]

Penguins Update: It Could Work!

“It…could…work!” Actor Gene Wilder, playing frazzle-haired Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (that’s Fronk-un-STEEN) in the all-time comedy classic Young Frankenstein, shouted those very words during a wild-eyed moment of clarity when he realized his grandfather’s efforts to restore life to the dead might bear fruit.

After a grueling opening month that culminated in a torturous five-game western road trip, we’re off four out of five days next week, abruptly followed by yet another in [...]

Penguins Update: Nothin’ the Maatta with Olli

Last season, right around this time, I posted an article titled, “What’s the Maatta with Olli?” on PenguinPoop. I delved into why, at least to my admittedly imperfect eye, Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta seemed to have regressed since his promising rookie season of 2013-14, when the then 19-year-old rearguard sent our expectations soaring wit [...]
