Can the Penguins Beat the Flyers?

00ppfront After watching Philadelphia cut through the black and gold like a knife going through a tub of warm butter in Games 1 and 2, the question on everyone’s mind is, “can the Penguins beat the Flyers?” The answer is yes. But first, a history lesson. Step into my time machine, if you will, and set the date for April 26, 1992. Fresh off a dismal 7-2 [...]

Penguins Update: Flyers A Lot Like Smokin’ Joe

00ppfront The recently departed Joe Frazier was one of the greatest heavyweight boxing champions of all-time. Known as Smokin’ Joe for his relentless attacking style, Philadelphia’s favorite adopted son was a fighter of limited skills but enormous heart. Blessed with a granite chin, the squat and powerful Frazier would absorb an opponent’s best punches [...]

Crosby Nets Two as Penguins Bop Bruins 5-3

00ppfront While it wasn’t exactly an ode to better puck management, the Penguins rebounded from a galling loss to the Flyers to whip the equally tough Bruins, 5-3, at TD Garden on Tuesday night. Pacing the win for the locals were Sidney Crosby, who collected two goals and an assist, and defenseman Kris Letang (three assists). Backup goalie Brent Johnso [...]

Flyers Rally, Smoke Sputtering Penguins 6-4

00ppfront In all likelihood the Penguins and the Flyers will clash in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs during the very near future. If Sunday’s matinee contest at CONSOL Energy Center was a preview, the Pens could be in big trouble. After striking for two quick goals, the home team crumbled like the dome on the old Civic Arena en route to [...]

Bailey, Okposo Power Islanders Past Penguins 5-3

00ppfront In the wake of his team’s sloppy 5-3 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma clearly wasn’t a happy camper. He made it plain during Wednesday’s practice session that he expected better defensive play from his troops. “They realize the situation,” Bylsma said. “Players spoke. Coaches spoke.” To make sure his charges got the [...]

Flyers Stun Penguins 3-2 in Overtime

00ppfront Just when it seemed as if the Penguins might never lose another game, the bottom fell out against the archrival Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on Sunday. After piling up a two-goal lead (not to mention a 27-10 advantage in shots) through 40 minutes of play, the Pens watched as the Flyers roared back to snatch a 3-2 victory on Scott Hartnell’s d [...]

Penguins Update: Adams a Keeper

00ppfront You won’t find Craig Adams on any All-Star ballots. Nor will you see his name listed among the NHL scoring leaders—or among the top Penguins scorers for that matter. Indeed, his major claim to fame would seem to be his exotic birthplace (Seria, Brunei Darussalam). However, Adams is a rare commodity—a player whose value can’t be fully measured [...]

Penguins Rocky Mountain High in 5-1 Win

00ppfront Entering Saturday night’s contest at the Pepsi Center (a.k.a. “the Can”) both the Penguins and the Colorado Avalanche were on a bit of a roll. While Colorado had posted an impressive 7-3-2 mark in their previous 12 games, the piping-hot Pens had won four in a row and seven of their last nine. Battling to keep pace in the chase for a playoff b [...]

Inspired Penguins Dim Stars 4-3

00ppfront Throughout Dan Bylsma’s tenure as coach the Penguins have displayed unflinching character in the face of overwhelming adversity. As so it was Wednesday night before a packed house at the in American Airlines Center in Dallas. After losing top point men Kris Letang and Steve Sullivan to injuries, the Pens responded with a gutsy, courageous eff [...]

Penguins Stand Pat at Trade Deadline

00ppfront Sometimes in hockey it’s the trades you don’t make that can best help your team. And so it was with Penguins general manager Ray Shero. As the 2012 NHL trade deadline approached he took a good, long look at his club, weighed the comparative strengths and weaknesses against a decidedly underwhelming pool of available talent, and chose to stick [...]
