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 [...]

Buffalo Shuffles Past Penguins 6-2

00ppfront Fresh off an emotional victory over Philadelphia the day before, the Penguins traveled north to take on the slumping Buffalo Sabres with high hopes of securing a four-point weekend. After all, the Pens had beaten the Sabres in seven out of their previous eight meetings, including an 8-3 laugher at CONSOL Energy Center on December17. However, [...]

Penguins Cooke Crumbles Flyers 6-4

00ppfront Once upon a time the Penguins used to come down with a strange malaise called the “Philly Flu” whenever they traveled cross state to take on Philadelphia. While the Flyers remain one of the NHL’s elite teams, visiting the “City of Brotherly Shove” no longer evokes the same stomach-churning symptoms it once did. Take Saturday afternoon’s match [...]

Jeffrey and Malkin Shine: Penguins Beat Habs in a Thriller

00ppfront In the midst of a roller-coaster season filled with desperate lows and equally dizzying heights, one thing about the Pittsburgh Penguins is certain. Win, lose or draw, the boys from the ‘Burgh give the fans their money’s worth. Take Friday night’s contest with the Montreal Canadiens for example. After spotting the visitors a 4-2 lead through [...]

Penguins Topple Mighty Rangers 4-1

00ppfront It’s hard to believe that scarcely seven days ago observers (like me) were ready to shovel dirt on the Penguins following their sixth-straight loss. What a difference a week makes. In arguably their finest effort of the season, the piping-hot Pens rode the stellar goaltending of Marc-Andre Fleury and another big-time performance by Evgeni Mal [...]

Penguins Edge ‘Canes 2-1 in Shootout

00ppfront The Penguins continued to distance themselves from an ugly six-game slide with a crisp 2-1 shootout win over Carolina at CONSOL Energy Center on Tuesday night. The victory—the club’s third in a row—vaulted the black and gold past idle Florida and into sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings. Although the Hurricanes entered the contest [...]

Sidney Crosby Needs to Re-Think Hockey

Sidney Crosby If your the best hockey player on the planet the whole idea of re-imagining your game probably sounds like a poor idea at best.  If you are the best player on the planet who has been injured and only able to play a handful of games over the course of a year then maybe it’s time to re-invent yourself. Three games back from his 10 1/2 mo [...]

Devils Sting Slumbering Penguins 3-1

00ppfront Perhaps it was fitting that the Penguins closed out 2011 the way it began—with a disappointing 3-1 loss. After all, the year was none too kind to the boys from the ‘Burgh. Starting with Sidney Crosby’s concussion on New Year’s Day and continuing with a spate of misfortune to rival the Ten Plagues of Egypt, the Pens endured more than their sha [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins Power Play Needs a Big Change

00ppfront Drastic times call for drastic measures!  The Pens power play is mired in drastic times.  Coach Dan needs to take drastic measures to make the power play even remotely effective.  I am not sure what the answer is, but I would start with taking Kris Letang off of the number one unit.  He is trying too hard, gripping the stick too hard or whate [...]
