Penguins Show Grit in OT Loss

00ppfront At first blush, there wasn’t a whole lot in the Penguins’ 2-1 overtime loss to Columbus to write about. Indeed, the Pens’ lone goal occurred at 6:13 of the second period on a seemingly innocuous Ian Cole shot from the point that hugged the ice and somehow escaped the detection of Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. Sometimes you need to loo [...]

Penguins Update: Rating Rutherford’s Trades

PC_140606_098i5_jim_rutherford_sn635-450x252 With the NHL trade deadline fast approaching, I thought it’d be fun to glance in the rearview mirror and do a quick summary of general manager Jim Rutherford’s trades since he arrived in Pittsburgh. Of course, the ratings are completely subjective, based on the observations of yours truly. Feel free to chime in if you disagree. Minor-league [...]

Penguins’ Possession Numbers Dip

00ppfront While serving as Buffalo’s goaltending coach in the early 2000s, Jim Corsi sought to devise an accurate barometer for measuring a goalie’s true workload.

To digress for a moment, I’ve been a huge Kunitz fan ever since he arrived from Anaheim in a trade for Ryan Whitney back in February 2009. They simply don’t come any tougher or grittier. Or classier, [...]

Can Penguins Repeat Perfect Storm?

pp0624 I always welcome the NHL All-Star break. It gives me a chance catch my breath. To pause and reflect on the first part of the season and to look ahead for things to come. Last year at this time the Penguins were only beginning to coalesce. Carl Hagelin had just arrived. The kids, too. Justin Schultz was soon to follow. The HBK Line was still a [...]

The Wow Factor: Penguins Crush Carolina 7-1

632252364_slide I’ve surely used this lead-in before. But, at the risk of repeating myself, what a difference a week makes. Why, following last Saturday night’s ugly 6-3 loss to Detroit the Penguins were sagging against the ropes and slipping in the standings. Losers of three in a row on the road—all by lopsided scores—there seemed to be definite cause for a [...]
