Penguins Free-Agent Bulletin Board

The first day of free agency was a busy one for the Penguins. General manager Jim Rutherford added six new players, including defenseman Matt Hunwick and goaltender Antti Niemi. Likewise, six players departed, including forwards Nick Bonino and Chris Kunitz and defensemen Trevor Daley and Ron Hainsey. Here’s a list of the Pens’ arrivals and d [...]

Penguins Update: The Recchin’ Ball Crashes the Hall

When the Penguins took Mark Recchi in the fourth round of 1988 Entry Draft, it was hardly a lock he’d make the team, let alone go on to a Hall-of-Fame career. Despite scoring 61 goals during his final season of junior hockey, he was passed over by the 21 NHL teams—including the Pens—not once, but three times. Too small, the scouts whispered. [...]

Penguins Cure Road Woes: Whip Montreal 4-1

I confess. I really wasn’t sure what to expect from our Penguins when they visited the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre last night.

It ain’t over till it’s over. Whether the Washington Capitals used that time-honored Yogi Berra-ism as motivation to claw back from the brink in their second-round series with the Penguins is anybody’s guess. But they sure played like it in Game 5. From Alex Ovechkin’s clutch game-opening goal and two-point performance to a bounce-back 30-sav [...]

Penguins A Cup Contender

After watching the Penguins clinch their tenth-consecutive playoff berth with a 5-0 drubbing of the New York Islanders on Saturday, I couldn’t help but reflect on last year. When we squeaked past a woeful Buffalo Sabres squad on the final day of the regular season to literally crawl into the playoffs on our belly. Remember? Now we enter the [...]
