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 [...]

Penguins Top Line Shines

632418040_slide With the Penguins taking on the Bruins and the Steelers challenging the Patriots for a Super Bowl berth, it was a huge sports weekend in the ‘Burgh. One with a pronounced Pittsburgh-Boston flavor. While our Steelers fell short, dropping a lopsided 36-17 decision to the Pats, the Pens salvaged a split—not to mention a little local pride—with a [...]

During his past four outings—all of them wins—Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury posted a microscopic 1.79 goals against average and equally gaudy .943 save percentage. A welcome [...]

Penguins Halt Sharks 3-1 in Game 4

pp0630 Something old, something new. Something borrowed, something blue. You might be wondering what the heck an olde English bridal rhyme has to do with hockey. Guess it kind of reminds me of our Penguins. A true mulligan stew of superstars, grinders, castoffs and kids. Beautifully seasoned and stirred by head chefs Jim Rutherford and Mike Sullivan [...]
