Somebody Has to Stop the Puck!

Of the top 100 drafted players in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, only nine were goaltenders. Taken at number 83, late in the 3rd round, was the Penguins’ own Matt Murray. To date he has only played 62 NHL games. His career average numbers? A .925 save percentage and a very respectable 2.32 goals against average. Matt has two Stanley Cups to his n [...]

Penguins Pick Six

General manager Jim Rutherford and the scouting staff added six new players to the Penguins’ fold yesterday at the NHL Entry Draft in Chicago.

Or classier, [...]

Penguins Stanley Cup Update: A Familiar Ring

The history of the Pittsburgh Penguins is filled with anomalies and precursors. Consider, for example, the strange case involving three of the team’s brightest stars—Michel Briere, Mario Lemieux, and Sidney Crosby. If you add the uniform numbers of Briere (21) and Mario (66), it equals Sid’s 87. Stuff like that. Along those lines, the paths [...]
