Penguins Tumble to New Low

The date was February 8, 2016. On that chilly Monday evening, the Penguins—still transforming under new coach Mike Sullivan—gave a delicious preview of what was in store. Displaying an astonishing blend of supreme skill and withering speed, they torched a very good Anaheim team, 6-2, at Consol Energy Center. To gain a little perspective, the [...]

We’re going dancing with Lord Stanley.” The Penguins edged the Tampa Bay Lightning, 2-1, last night in a pulsating Game 7 that virtually throbbed with passion and intensity.
