Islanders Ice Penguins 5-3

00ppfront “There are three kinds of lies,” celebrated 19th-Century author Mark Twain was fond of saying. “Lies, damned lies, and statistics.” Twain’s colloquialism seemed an all-too-fitting way to describe Tuesday night’s contest between the Penguins and Islanders at CONSOL Energy Center. The black and gold outshot the visitors 54-25. They dominated th [...]

Penguins Update: Fleury’s Got Hart

00ppfront Lately, the CONSOL Energy Center faithful have taken to chanting “MVP” whenever Penguins superstar Evgeni Malkin torches an opposing goalie with one of his patented highlight-reel goals. There’s no denying that Malkin’s enjoyed an extraordinary season (95 points and counting) or that the super Russian’s the odds-on favorite to capture the Har [...]

Dupuis Shines as Penguins Rake Leafs 3-2

00ppfront With temperatures hovering magically at 66 degrees, the Penguins unveiled a magnificent statue of their owner and all-time greatest player, Mario Lemieux, at a special midday ceremony on Wednesday outside of CONSOL Energy Center. Too bad Mario didn’t fare as well in the NBC Hockey Network broadcast booth that evening. Indeed, when No. 66 join [...]

Inspired Penguins Dim Stars 4-3

00ppfront Throughout Dan Bylsma’s tenure as coach the Penguins have displayed unflinching character in the face of overwhelming adversity. As so it was Wednesday night before a packed house at the in American Airlines Center in Dallas. After losing top point men Kris Letang and Steve Sullivan to injuries, the Pens responded with a gutsy, courageous eff [...]

Penguins Stand Pat at Trade Deadline

00ppfront Sometimes in hockey it’s the trades you don’t make that can best help your team. And so it was with Penguins general manager Ray Shero. As the 2012 NHL trade deadline approached he took a good, long look at his club, weighed the comparative strengths and weaknesses against a decidedly underwhelming pool of available talent, and chose to stick [...]

Penguins Cooke Crumbles Flyers 6-4

00ppfront Once upon a time the Penguins used to come down with a strange malaise called the “Philly Flu” whenever they traveled cross state to take on Philadelphia. While the Flyers remain one of the NHL’s elite teams, visiting the “City of Brotherly Shove” no longer evokes the same stomach-churning symptoms it once did. Take Saturday afternoon’s match [...]

Penguins Rattle Bruins 2-1

00ppfront Entering Saturday afternoon’s matchup of Eastern Conference heavyweights at TD Garden, both Pittsburgh and Boston were experiencing goal-scoring droughts. While the Penguins had been blanked by Toronto in their most recent outing, the Bruins were coming off a lackluster 3-0 whitewashing at the hands of Carolina. Neither team struck pay dirt u [...]

Penguins Bust Out Against Panthers 4-1

00ppfront Hockey players are famously superstitious. Many suffer from triskaidekaphobia—a fear of the number 13. Fortunately, the Penguins aren’t among them. On the contrary, 13 players have captained the black and gold on a full-time basis. Penguins superstars captured the Art Trophy 13 times. So perhaps it was fitting that the Pens snapped their wors [...]

What’s Ailing the Penguins?

00ppfront Following a typically strong start to the 2011-12 campaign, the Penguins have stumbled along at an unsightly 13-13 clip since the end of October. As the season reaches the halfway mark, the Pens suddenly find themselves in a dogfight to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot. So what’s wrong? The most obvious answer to what’s ailing the Pens is [...]

Tumbling Penguins Drop Fourth in a Row

00ppfront For the past 11 days Dan Bylsma has patiently awaited the victory that would move him past Michel Therrien on the Penguins’ all-time list for coaching wins. If the black-and-gold’s recent results are any indication of what’s in store, the affable skipper might have a long wait. Continuing a dismal stretch that harkens back to the dark final d [...]
