Penguins’ Defense Rests

No Vokoun Is it me, or did the Penguins’ 6-5 loss to Philadelphia Wednesday night look eerily familiar? It was almost as if we entered a space/time vortex and were watching a game from last season’s disastrous first-round playoff matchup. The game featured an all-too-familiar script. The Penguins rocketed from the starting gate to snatch a quick lead. [...]

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: Malkin the Magnificent

00ppfront Back in 1963 Avis was determined to pry rent-a-car sales away from its giant rival Hertz. So president Robert C. Townsend devised a catchy new slogan to highlight his company’s underdog status—“We’re Only No. 2. We Try Harder.” Penguins superstar Evgeni Malkin can relate. The gifted center has spent virtually his entire career skating in the [...]

Flyers Throttle Penguins 5-1, Advance to Second Round

00ppfront The Sports Illustrated jinx is alive and well. Seven days after SI posed the question—“Who Will Stop the Penguins?”—on the cover of its April 15 issue the new-look Flyers provided the answer. Paced by Claude Giroux’s three-point effort and some stingy defense (40 blocked shots), the Flyers eliminated their surprisingly subdued rivals in Game [...]

Penguins Can Still Beat the Flyers in Six

00ppfront Figuratively, of course, but if the Pens knot this series at 3-3 this afternoon, the Flyers won’t have what it takes to finish the series back here in the ‘burgh. Why? I think Phil hit on the #1 reason in his last post The Penguins Are Now in the Flyers’ Heads: they are showing tell-tale signs of being a shell-shocked team o [...]

Flower Powers Penguins Past Flyers 3-2

00ppfront During the first four games of their incendiary opening-round series, the Penguins and Flyers provided enough fireworks to rival any Fourth of July pyrotechnics display. On Friday night Marc-Andre Fleury stole the show with a goaltending effort for the ages. In perhaps the most brilliant performance of his career “Flower” made 24 saves—includ [...]

Flyers finally show their true colors or Anyone want to buy a broom cheap?

00ppfront No matter the result of last night’s Game 4 between the Penguins and the Flyers at “Whatever the hell bank bought us this week” Arena, the Penguins would be coming back to Pittsburgh today either to get the golf clubs out of the closet or start preparing for Game 5 at the Consol Energy Center Friday night, and thanks to the [...]

I’m not Embarrassed by the Pittsburgh Penguins Actions

I’m not Embarrassed by the Pittsburgh Penguins Actions Oh, I was embarrassed Sunday.  I was extremely embarrassed when the NBC announcers were sticking up for Scotty Hartnell and claiming along with Hartnell that he was getting his hair pulled.  I have never been more embarrassed for the NHL as a sport in my 37 years of watching hockey. I’m not one to kick my team when they are down so no m [...]

Penguins Get an ‘A’ for Atrocious

00ppfront I’ve been a die-hard Penguins fan for nearly 40 years. During that span there have been precious few times—especially since the arrival of Mario Lemieux—when I haven’t been proud of our team. But this is one of ‘em. It isn’t that the Pens lost a crucial Game 3 to the piping-hot Flyers yesterday. Every team loses. Rather, it’s the way they los [...]

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 [...]
