Penguins Answer the Bell

pp0435 It’s hard to say whether the Penguins have what it takes to win the Stanley Cup. Conventional wisdom says GM Ray Shero has some holes to fill—especially on the third line. While the team’s championship pedigree may be in question, its heart and soul are not. The Penguins displayed plenty of both against a surprisingly spirited Buffalo squad a [...]

Is the Penguins’ Defense Good Enough?

pp0431 Back in 1973 the Philadelphia Flyers drafted defenseman Larry Goodenough with their second-round pick. Cleverly nicknamed “Izzy,” Goodenough enjoyed some early success with Philly before fizzling later on. It made me think of the Penguins’ defense. As it’s currently constructed, is the black-and-gold blueline corps good enough to anchor a Sta [...]

Penguins Show Lots of Heart

pp0412 I’ve written on numerous occasions that the Penguins need to be bigger and tougher in order to compete for the Stanley Cup. While I still feel the black and gold would benefit from some extra beef up front, the team’s collective heart is plenty big enough. Last night’s 4-1 victory over Detroit was one of the most courageous efforts I’ve witne [...]

Penguins Update: The Boston Massacre

pp0410 More than any Penguins’ defeat in recent memory, last night’s gut-wrenching 3-2 loss at the hands of the Big, Bad Bruins at TD Garden left a bad taste in my mouth and set off a tidal wave of emotions. It wasn’t so much that the Penguins lost as how they lost. After giving a valiant effort for 58 emotionally charged minutes, they leaked for tw [...]

Penguins Update: Facing Flyers May Not Be Fun

00ppfront When the Penguins and Flyers resume the Commonwealth Cold War in Philadelphia on Thursday night, it’ll be the definitive case of two foes headed in opposite directions. While the Pens have zoomed to the top of the Metropolitan Division, the Flyers are off to a ghastly 1-6 start. Indeed, the Pens are firing on all cylinders while Philadelphia [...]

Penguins History: Toughest Fighters

pp0402 For my fourth and final installment on the toughest Penguins ever, I’ve listed the guys I’d most want to have with me if I were entering a dark alley. 1. Bob “Battleship” Kelly (1974-77) As a 27-year-old rookie with St. Louis, Kelly beat reigning heavyweight king Dave Schultz twice in a preseason game. Able to intimidate foes simply by skatin [...]

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 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 [...]

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 [...]

Penguins Rebound, Whip Devils 5-2

00ppfront As they prepared to square off at CONSOL Energy Center for Sunday night’s tilt, both the Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils felt they had something to prove. The Penguins were determined to bounce back from a sloppy 8-4 loss to Ottawa on Saturday. For the visiting Devils, it was more personal. They hoped to atone for an embarrassing 5- [...]
