Penguins Stay Hot; Melt Rangers in OT

pp0596 It wasn’t all that long ago that the New York Rangers had the Penguins’ number. Especially goalie Henrik Lundqvist. How times have changed. Exuding a grit and resilience that’s come to typify their efforts under Mike Sullivan, the Penguins overcame two deficits on Sunday–not to mention tired legs–to beat New Yor [...]

Penguins Rutherford Deserves Praise

PC_140606_098i5_jim_rutherford_sn635-450x252 I’ll be honest. Jim Rutherford wasn’t my choice to succeed Ray Shero as the Penguins’ general manager back in the summer of 2014. I’m not sure he was the Pens’ top choice, either. The club was considering associate GM Jason Botterill and analyst Pierre Maguire, among others, before JR emerged—seemingly from left field—to win the job. Now? It [...]

Crosby Ignites Penguins

pp0592 Bam. BAM. Emerging from their corner at the opening bell last night, the Penguins got tagged right on the kisser with the ol’ one-two. Scarcely five minutes into their Metro Division tilt with Carolina at the CONSOL, the hosts were down by a pair and reeling on the canvas. They didn’t stay down for long.

The Pens certainly had their moments during last night’s disappointing 3-2 loss to Washington at the Verizon Center. They were the quicker, more vibrant team to open the game. When Patric Hornqvist [...]

Penguins Nip Hurricanes 2-1 in Shootout

pp0576 It wasn’t a pretty win. Especially by recent standards. Indeed, if the Penguins perhaps deserved a better fate during Wednesday’s 3-0 home-ice loss to the Rangers, they were downright lucky to escape from Raleigh last night with a point, let alone two. Contrary to their preferred style of play under Mike Sullivan, the Pens spent a significan [...]

Penguins Primed for a Freefall

pp0564 The disintegration of our Pittsburgh Penguins has begun. By my unofficial time table, a season or two early. It isn’t as much a prediction as a statement of fact. With a 1-5-1 record over the past seven games—including a pair of dismal losses to the Bruins—the Pens are hurtling toward the infernal regions of the NHL standings at breakneck spe [...]
