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 [...]

When you break it down scientifically, the numbers never lie

With their methodical 3 – 0 victory over the New York Islanders last night at the Nassau County Colosseum, the Penguins now find themselves with a 7-2-2 record after 11 games, a pace, if kept up, that would see them record 119 points and surely the top overall seed going into the playoffs.  Now none of us expects them to continue at thi [...]

Brooks Orpik and Tyler Kennedy Away From the Ice

orpikppshirt On Thursday, November 18th, Art Vandelay and I had a chance to see some Pens in a little off-ice action.  Fidelity Bank welcomed Brooks Orpik and Tyler Kennedy to their newest location at new McCandless Crossing development off of McKnight Road in the North Hills. For the first hour, Orpik and Kennedy mingled with a smaller group of fans in a [...]

First Quarter Report Card

reportcard Well, the season is now 20 games in which means that roughly one quarter of it is gone, and so, just like when you were back in school, it is time to issue the first quarter report card for  the team, the players and the coach. The Team: B- The team has had to make quite a few adjustments this year from welcoming in new players to learning t [...]

Penguins Break Losing Streak Against the Devils

00ppfront As disheartning as it may have been to see the Pens lose their first two games at the CEC, it was that much of a relief that they beat the New Jersey Devils yesterday afternoon.  The Pens lost all 8 games against the Devils last season, so it is like getting that perverbial monkey off your back by beating the Devils last night.  The bad news [...]

Brooks Orpik and Jordan Staal named Alternate Captains

00ppfront Before I dive right in to the subject of the alternate captains, there is a lot of “new” stuff going on right now.  The “new” look Pens are about to start a “new” season in a brand “new” arena.  So, it seems like a good time for me to become the “new” kid on the block around here.  I [...]

Penguins Bounce Back to Tie Series 1-1

Pens and Senators having a meet and greet in front of the net. Apparently, the Penguins needed some kind of an emotional event to allow them to play hockey better.  Maybe they were just not emotionally invested in game 1.  Is that the reason for the lackluster play?  The Pens got emotionally invested in game 2.  The Sutton hit on Jordan Leopold sparked that emotional aspect of the game. Pens and Senators [...]

Gameday Poop: Penguins vs Sabres – March 2 – He’s Back!

pp0182 Sidney Crosby returns home to the igloo tonight irrefutably the best player in hockey right now. In nine months this 22 year old has won both the Stanley Cup and the Gold medal in style. Captain Crosby led the Penguins in goals last playoff season and he got the game winner in overtime of the Gold Medal Game at the Olympics. Even though he is [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins: The Birth of a Dynasty

dynasty600 You are currently witnessing the birth of a new hockey dynasty in Pittsburgh and if ownership plays it’s cards right, it could be one for over a decade. 21 year old Sidney Crosby and 22 year old Evgeni Malkin, two of the last three Art Ross Trophy winners are a tandem like modern day hockey has never seen. Evgeni Malkin was drafted 2nd [...]
