Up-and-Down Penguins Hard to Predict

pp0444 As the star-crossed 2013-14 season mercifully draws to a close, there’s one question on the mind of every black-and-gold fan. Are the Penguins legitimate Stanley Cup contenders? It sure is hard to tell. Talk about a roller coaster. On March 30 the Pens hammered Chicago with a lethal combination of ferocity and skill. Two nights later they rol [...]

Penguins Update: Stempniak Provides a Spark

pp0442 Lately the Pittsburgh Penguins haven’t had a whole lot to write home about. The black and gold is mired in an ugly 2-4-1 funk. They’re a mediocre 6-6-2 since the Olympic break. With superstar Evgeni Malkin (hairline foot fracture) joining the ranks of the wounded, the injury bug continues to take a wicked toll. While good news is decidedly to [...]

Sweet Georgia Brown: Penguins on Shaky Ground

pp0441 During each of the past three seasons the Pittsburgh Penguins rocketed through March and April, only to pull an el foldo in the playoffs. This year Dan Bylsma’s crew seems to be trying a totally different approach—play as poorly as possible in the stretch run and hope to heat up in the postseason. With a 5-4-2 record since the Olympic break, [...]

Penguins Try Everyman Approach: Add Goc and Stempniak

pp0440 What a difference a year makes. Eleven months ago Penguins fans were dancing in the streets following GM Ray Shero’s blockbuster deadline deals for Jarome Iginla, Jussi Jokinen, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. And this season? Not so much. Shero tried to add some glitter. He vigorously pursued Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler, only to be rebuffed. [...]

Penguins Update: Hot ‘n’ Not

pp0418 Here’s a quick glance at who’s hot (and who’s not) for the Penguins over their last ten games leading up to Saturday’s contest with Calgary. The Pens were 7-2-1 during that span. (more…)

Penguins Update: Nothing the Maatta with Olli

pp0408 When Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero selected defenseman Olli Maatta with the 22nd overall pick at the 2012 Entry Draft, it’s safe to say he was expecting good things from the London Knights star. He just wasn’t expecting them so soon. Following a solid 2012-13 season in junior, the 19-year-old native of Jyvaskyla, Finland wasted little time [...]

Penguins Update: First Quarter Report

pp0405 As the Penguins round the quarter pole of the 2013-14 season, I thought it might be an appropriate time to review the Top Five Pluses (and Minuses) so far. (more…)

Penguins an Easy Opponent?

pp0404 There was a time in the not-too-distant past when Pittsburgh Penguins opponents hated visiting the Steel City. Not only would they have to face a lethal lineup featuring hungry young stars such as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but they knew they’d absorb more than a few bumps and bruises, too. Now it seems, opponents are having far too eas [...]

Penguins Set After Free-Agent Flurry

shero2 It didn’t take Penguins general manager Ray Shero long to wrap up his summer’s work. During the four short weeks that passed since the black and gold bowed to Boston in the Conference Finals, he resolved virtually all of the team’s looming personnel issues and laid the foundation for the upcoming campaign. Here’s a quick review of Shero’s mov [...]

Penguins Update: Bylsma Pushes the Right Buttons

pp0350 There’s an old adage in sports—ride the horse that brung ya.’ (Or something like that.) Thank goodness Penguins coach Dan Bylsma paid it no mind as filled out his lineup card for Thursday’s critical Game 5 matchup with the pesky New York Islanders. I’ve been critical of the Pens’ skipper in the past for what I felt were questionable personnel [...]
