Penguins Update: I Was Wrrrr…

00ppfront For those of us ancient enough to remember the TV show Happy Days, it was a classic episode. The one where Fonzie tried to admit he was wrong to Ralph Malph, but couldn’t get the words out. “I was wrrrr…,” stammered the Fonz. Well, the same goes for me. I was wrrrr… about our Penguins. Six weeks ago I predicted a black-and-gold im [...]

Penguins Lose Fehr to Lower-Body Injury

00ppfront Eric Fehr could miss at least a month with a lower-body injury, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan revealed today. The big forward’s legs folded awkwardly beneath him after he was checked by Senators defenseman Mark Borowiecki during the second period of Tuesday’s victory over Ottawa. He exited the ice in visible pain and had to be help [...]

Penguins Update: Looking Ahead

pp0575 “I believe that we will make the playoffs.” With a singular forceful statement, All-Star center Evgeni Malkin reflected the growing sense of optimism over the fortunes of our Pittsburgh Penguins. Almost overnight, it seems, they’ve transformed from a crew of rag-tag underachievers struggling to keep pace in the Eastern Conference playoff chas [...]

Penguins Update: Hagelin, Daley Provide a Spark

pp0574 It isn’t the easiest thing to do. Improving a team through trades. Indeed, there’s a certain hit-or-miss quality about the process that comes with the turf. Kind of like panning for gold nuggets in a partially played-out stream, hoping to strike it rich. Especially if your counterpart senses you’re itching to make a deal. Overplay your hand a [...]

Penguins Impress With 4-3 Win Over Flyers

pp0572 Speed kills. Penguins’ play-by-play announcer Paul Steigerwald bellowed that time-honored line after watching Phil Kessel and Carl Hagelin torch the Flyers on a two-on-one during the third period of last night’s scintillating 4-3 Penguins victory at the Consol. Philly forward and noted Penguin killer Jakub Voracek seconded the notion. “They’r [...]

Penguins Dynamic Duo

pp0571 There’ve been two distinct sets of Sidney Crosbys and Kris Letangs skating for the Pittsburgh Penguins this season. The initial pair languished under previous coach Mike Johnston, combining for a paltry seven goals during the Pens’ first 28 games. Since Mike Sullivan took over? It’s as if Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson popped into t [...]

Sullivan vs. Johnston: Comparing the Penguins’ First-Half Numbers

pp0569 With a couple of days between games and nothing in particular to write about, I thought I’d compare the Penguins’ stats under new coach Mike Sullivan to those compiled under former skipper Mike Johnston. While the impromptu analysis didn’t expose anything earth-shattering, it did reveal a few surprises. First, the expected. Based on the numb [...]

Penguins Show Fight; Crunch Blue Jackets 5-2

pp0565 It was a night of firsts on Monday evening at Consol Energy Center. The Penguins won their first game in five tries under new coach Mike Sullivan, beating Columbus for the first time this season. Rookie goalie Matt Murray made 22 saves to notch his first NHL win. Fellow rookie Scott Wilson registered his first NHL point. Defenseman David Wars [...]

Penguins Recall Murray, Porter and Sheary

pp0562 In the wake of injuries to goalie Marc-Andre Fleury and winger Beau Bennett, the Penguins have recalled forwards Kevin Porter and Conor Sheary—along with goalie Matt Murray—from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. After skating through the opening two months of the season relatively unscathed, the Pens have been wracked by ailments of late. Pascal Dupuis [...]

Penguins Plus/Minus

pp0560 As our Penguins prepare to enter a brand-new era under Mike Sullivan, I thought I’d take a moment to reflect on some pluses and minuses through the first third of the 2015-16 season. It’s not meant to be an all-inclusive list. Obviously, players such as Evgeni Malkin and Marc-Andre Fleury deserve praise, as do the unsung defensive tandem of [...]
