Penguins Playoff Update: Ramble On

I confess. When the Penguins beat Nashville in Game Two on Wednesday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Final, I started feeling giddy about our chances to repeat as champions. Then I was reminded that the last team to have a shot at winning back-to-back Cups had gone up 2-zip as well. Indeed, the Detroit Red Wings defeated our Pens [...]

Penguins Acquire Streit, Corrado at Deadline

Laboring under the mistaken assumption that Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford stood pat at the trade deadline, I started to compose a piece for PenguinPoop based on Kenny Rogers C&W classic, The Gambler.

Fleury almost did, too [...]

Penguins Stanley Cup Update: Chinks in Murray’s Armor?

We’ve all heard the comparisons. He’s the next Ken Dryden. A sure-fire NHL All-Star for years to come. Maybe even a future Hall of Famer. The plaudits…and excitement…were understandable. Especially given the way Penguins rookie goalie Matt Murray wowed us down the homestretch and through the first couple of rounds of the playoffs. So cool. S [...]
