No Jokin[en]: Penguins’ Jussi for Real

Jussi Jokinen When Penguins GM Ray Shero acquired veteran Jussi Jokinen from Carolina at the trade deadline for a conditional draft pick it almost seemed like an afterthought. After all, Shero had spent the previous week snatching up three of the hottest commodities on the market—Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. But make no mistake—Jokine [...]

Penguins Need Malkin More Than Ever

malkin There’s a rather ominous Bible verse in the book of Hosea that warns, “… they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.” While I may be guilty of taking this passage of scripture out of context, it sure seems like an apt description for what has been an exhilarating yet tumultuous couple of weeks for Penguins hockey. On the plus [...]

Penguins Update: A Funny Thing Happened on the Road to the Cup

pp0361 It sure is a wonderful time to be a Penguins fan. With a little help from friends Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby has reestablished himself as the finest player in the game. Our boys are making mincemeat out of the rest of the NHL to the tune of 14-straight wins. They’ve allowed only 9 goals in the past 10 games—including three [...]

Penguins Update: Time to Trade Malkin?

pp0111 There was a time when the thought of trading superstar Evgeni Malkin would’ve seemed so preposterous that it wouldn’t have entered my mind. After all, we’re talking about a Hart Trophy winner and two-time NHL scoring champ—a player of such singular brilliance and magnitude that he’s already carved out a prominent place among the pantheon of S [...]

Pens Comeback Win Against Bs Most Meaningful of the Season

bruins There are few things more gratifying than erasing a four-goal lead against a hated rival on their own ice, then proceeding to go on to beat them. One thing that is better, though, is coming back to win against a team with a suffocating D by watching your game systematically dismantle theirs with a few small tweaks in the waning minutes. Let&# [...]

Black-and-Gold Update: Penguins Show Tons of Heart in Victory Over Philly

Kunitz Celebration They say confession is good for the soul. If so, I must confess here and now that this isn’t my favorite Penguins team. I think they’re too small. They lack defensive structure, especially in their own end. And coach Dan Bylsma seems rigidly resistant to making meaningful adjustments. Still, I couldn’t be more proud of our boys for the way th [...]

Plug ‘N’ Play Penguins Too Predictable?

Coach Bylsma For the past couple of seasons I’ve watched with increasing alarm as the Penguins have downsized (and defanged) in order to better fit Dan Bylsma’s “damn-the-torpedoes, full-steam-ahead” system. It’s no secret that Bylsma’s approach is predicated on wearing the other team down with a relentless attack. While speed certainly is an asset in tod [...]

Penguins Update: History Repeating Itself

Neal & Niskanen In nature everything runs in cycles. Seasons change from winter to spring to summer to fall, and back again. The same holds true in sports. Championship teams are cultivated and nurtured through a combination of drafts, trades and free-agent signings until they peak. Then they gradually diminish until they enter a rebuilding phase. Only three [...]

Flyers Outclass Penguins 8-4

00ppfront Prior to the “Battle of Pennsylvania,” Flyers forward Scott Hartnell boldly proclaimed, “It’s going to be a bloodbath.” The Philly villain’s prediction came true—in spades—on Sunday afternoon during a raucous Game 3 at the Wells Fargo Center. In an ugly affair that featured 158 penalty minutes and battles galore, the Flyers outclassed the Pen [...]

If the Penguins are going to win Bylsma must pull in the reins

00ppfront The Penguins have tried to win it their way. The Penguins war of attrition has failed and it’s time to look at what does work.  What has worked is the New York Rangers game plan. The Rangers are 6-0 against the Flyers this year and the most goals the Flyers have scored against them in a game is 3. There are a few simple changes Penguins [...]
