Penguins Jolt Jets in OT

642157124_slide I had my lead-in for last night’s Penguins-Jets game all but written. In deference to the upcoming Academy Awards, I’d nominated Marc-Andre Fleury for Best Performance by a Losing Goalie. Perfectly fitting, given that “Flower” literally stood on his head to make 44 saves. None more spectacular that his sensational glove save on Nikolaj Ehlers [...]

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. Reasoning that his netminders had to physically react to a broader range of on-ice stimuli than merely shots on goal, Corsi decided to track missed shot attempts and blocked shots as well. L [...]

Penguins Kunitz Thrives in New Role

00ppfront Back in mid-January, I suggested in one of my follow-up comments that the Penguins consider moving Chris Kunitz at the upcoming trade deadline. 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.

Yet Penguins winger Phil Kessel inexplicably was passed over when the United States team was assembled for the World Cup tournament last summer. Bad idea. Especially for Columbus skipper John Tortorella, who coache [...]

Penguins Tame Predators 4-2

633218246_slide Sidney Crosby had a choice. He could’ve taken the day off after jetting from Los Angeles, where he helped pace the Metropolitan Division to victory in last weekend’s NHL All-Star game. Standard procedure for most participants. Or he could join his teammates for a Monday afternoon practice. Sid chose the latter. His black-and-gold teammates ha [...]

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 [...]
