Blackhawks Scalp Penguins 5-1

00ppfront Recently, I’ve spent lots of time lamenting the Penguins’ injury woes. And it sure is tough to watch our guys repeatedly take it on the chin. Like last night’s 5-1 loss to Chicago at PPG Paints Arena, a defeat that was equal parts humbling and stinging. Talk about a slap in the face. The Pens have lost four games in a row for the first time s [...]

Islanders Trip Penguins in Shootout

657476450_slide After watching our team absorb a second-straight shootout loss, it might be easy for us Penguins fans to lose heart. We’re so accustomed to success. Especially in shootouts, where until recently, we ruled. I’ll address the collective concerns of Penguins Nation with a riddle. What do Trevor Daley, Jake Guentzel, Carl Hagelin, Ron Hainsey, Kr [...]

Penguins Update: Points per Sixty

00ppfront Being a bit of a nerd, I’ve always had a fascination with numbers. And the myriad of today’s ever-evolving hockey statistics truly boggle my mind. Heck, you can track everything from a player’s zone starts to how their teammates perform with or without them (WOWY). Corsi, Fenwick…the list is endless. Lately, I’m enamored of a relatively [...]

Flames Singe Penguins in Shootout

653066644_slide The Penguins fell just short of a clean sweep of their swing through Western Canada last night, dropping a taut 4-3 decision to Calgary in a shootout. “I felt like we had our chances,” said Sidney Crosby, who snapped a seven-game goal drought with his league-best 35th tally of the season. “But it was a pretty good hockey game both ways.” “Ou [...]

Road Warrior Penguins Muzzle Canucks

652340698_slide It wasn’t supposed to happen this way. Not according to my admittedly flawed crystal ball. Starting with a physical clash with the revenge-minded Winnipeg Jets, the Penguins by all rights should be struggling on this road trip. Not thriving. Road weary, rather than road warriors. Instead, they’ve won five in a row to pull within a point of t [...]

Penguins Update: Whatever Happened to The HBK Line?

PITTSBURGH, PA - MAY 02:  Carl Hagelin #62 of the Pittsburgh Penguins celebrates his second-period goal against Braden Holtby #70 of the Washington Capitals in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Second Round during the 2016 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Consol Energy Center on May 2, 2016 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  (Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images) It was right around this time last season when the Penguins received a divine bit of inspiration, wrapped in the guise of a devastating injury. Remember? March 11, 2016 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus. Evgeni Malkin was checked awkwardly into the end boards during second-period action by Blue Jackets bruiser Dalton Prout and came away favorin [...]
