Penguins Come Alive with Sullivan

pp0567 There must’ve been times early in his tenure as Penguins coach when Mike Sullivan wondered what he’d gotten himself into. Especially after watching his new charges fold up like a cheap suit during a dismal 6-2 loss to Boston on home ice a week before Christmas. Fortunately for the Pens, “Sully” resisted the temptation to pack his bags and je [...]

Penguins Primed for a Freefall

pp0564 The disintegration of our Pittsburgh Penguins has begun. By my unofficial time table, a season or two early. It isn’t as much a prediction as a statement of fact. With a 1-5-1 record over the past seven games—including a pair of dismal losses to the Bruins—the Pens are hurtling toward the infernal regions of the NHL standings at breakneck spe [...]

Penguins Dismiss Mike Johnston

pp0547 The Penguins have dismissed head coach Mike Johnston. The move was announced today by general manager Jim Rutherford at a press conference at Consol Energy Center. Assistant coach Gary Agnew was relieved of his duties as well. “I felt with where we are right now (fifth place in the Metropolitan Division), and how we’ve played over the first p [...]

Penguins Update: Lapierre Deal a Step in the Right Direction

pp0507 At the risk of mimicking that annoying blue jay perched on a branch outside your window that just won’t shut up, I’m once more going to expound on my favorite hockey subject. The Penguins need to get bigger. Especially up front. In a hurry. Last week’s games were a case in point. After delivering a superhuman effort to beat an infinitely larg [...]

Powder-Puff Penguins Putrid in 3-1 Loss

pp0483 I was searching for a word that best described the Penguins’ pathetic showing during Sunday night’s abysmal 3-1 loss to the Rangers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Soft immediately came to mind. With a chance to wrap-up their second-round series and atone for a wretched showing in Game 5, the Penguins turned in one of the most [...]

Are the Penguins Jelling at the Right Time?

pp0461 Maybe it’s too early to ponder that question. There are a lot more games to be won before the Penguins can dream of hoisting the Stanley Cup. Yet there are reasons to believe. Remember Game 3, when the Pens were reeling from an overtime loss and Columbus had them in an early hole? Instead of folding like a cheap suit, our boys stung the Blue [...]

Penguins Update: Prelude to the Playoffs?

pp0438 In the wake of Team USA’s heartbreaking loss to Team Canada on Friday, a buddy of mine shook his head and muttered, “The damn Penguins lost again.” His eyes widened as he caught his mistake, and he quickly corrected himself. But the analogy was made. He was right, too. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear I was watching a replay of our season-e [...]

Penguins Update: The Boston Massacre

pp0410 More than any Penguins’ defeat in recent memory, last night’s gut-wrenching 3-2 loss at the hands of the Big, Bad Bruins at TD Garden left a bad taste in my mouth and set off a tidal wave of emotions. It wasn’t so much that the Penguins lost as how they lost. After giving a valiant effort for 58 emotionally charged minutes, they leaked for tw [...]

Penguins Set After Free-Agent Flurry

shero2 It didn’t take Penguins general manager Ray Shero long to wrap up his summer’s work. During the four short weeks that passed since the black and gold bowed to Boston in the Conference Finals, he resolved virtually all of the team’s looming personnel issues and laid the foundation for the upcoming campaign. Here’s a quick review of Shero’s mov [...]

Penguins Okay with Second Best

pp0397 After reading Phil Krundle’s passionate, well-thought, and superbly crafted feature on the state of the Penguins (and coach Dan Bylsma), I almost didn’t post this piece. It’s not nearly as comprehensive as Phil’s, but it represents a different point of view. In that spirit I decided to post it: I never thought I’d see the day when the Penguin [...]
