Penguins Get Kessel

pp0529 What’s the old saying? Desperate times call for desperate measures? In the wake of last season’s disappointing finish—not to mention the recent announcement that owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle are looking to sell—the Penguins went all out to regain their luster. In the biggest trade of the summer Pens GM Jim Rutherford sent [...]

Penguins Fall Short in Game 5

00ppfront I was hoping against hope our Penguins would win Game 5 of their first-round series against the Rangers. If not for themselves, then for goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. No one deserved a victory more. The willowy native of La belle province made 34 saves in a courageous performance that lit up the Madison Square Garden ice. Alas, it wasn’t enough. [...]

Penguins Give Their All

pp0528 Determined to even their series with the nettlesome New York Rangers, the Penguins played 60 minutes of passionate, playoff-style hockey last night at the CONSOL Energy Center. Actually, 63:14 to be exact. Unfortunately, their best wasn’t good enough. Three-plus minutes into overtime Rangers rookie Kevin Hayes poked a loose puck past Marc-An [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins vs NY Rangers 2015 Playoff Predictions

pp0524 Here we go again, It’s the Pittsburgh Penguins facing off against the New York Rangers for the eight playoff game in a row for the Penguins.  Since the Rangers won the Presidents’ Trophy and they beat the Penguins last year, the NHL should just hand the series to the Rangers…  Right? We’ve put together an incredible g [...]

Are the Penguins Primed for a Collapse?

pp0520 It was a pretty goal. Especially by recent black-and-gold standards. Beau Bennett cruised into the slot, gathered up a loose puck, and slipped it through the goalie’s five-hole. Problem is, it was Marc-Andre Fleury’s five-hole. Bennett’s wrong-way play seems to epitomize the plight of the Penguins, who’ve lost four straight. A team built to [...]

Penguins Update: How Important is Building Through the Draft?

pp0516 A while back I read an article that downplayed the importance of building through the Entry Draft. I beg to differ. Developing young talent is the life blood of any hockey team. Fail to do so, and eventually your team will collapse like a house of cards. Ever since the Penguins won the Cup in 2009, they’ve used draft picks as fodder to trade [...]

Penguins Update: The Unsung Heroes

pp0512 It’s been a topsy-turvy season in Penguin-land. For starters, there’s a new coach and GM. Not to mention tons of personnel changes and the usual spate of injuries and illnesses to contend with. Even team captain and reigning Art Ross and Hart Trophy winner Sidney Crosby hasn’t been immune, enduring an uncharacteristically epic scoring drought [...]

Penguins Update: The Comeback Kid

pp0509 Amid the kerfuffle that has become our Pittsburgh Penguins, one player has stood out from the pack. A year after suffering a potential career-ending stroke, Kris Letang has returned with a vengeance. The former Norris Trophy candidate and Second Team NHL All-Star has piled up nine goals and 39 points (in 44 games)—the third-best points total [...]

Penguins Impress with Hustle, Heart, and Desire

pp0504 Watching Blake Comeau circumnavigate the Colorado Avalanche not once but twice before scoring the winning goal in overtime on Thursday night was the perfect ending to a near-perfect 60 minutes of hockey. The Penguins fired off a season-high 48 shots. They outhit the Avs.  For good measure, they blocked 13 shots. Or, as Dan Bylsma used to say [...]

Penguins Report Card

00ppfront Few teams endured more upheaval over the summer than the Pittsburgh Penguins. In a shakeup of seismic proportions, the black and gold replaced their long-time coach and GM, allowed several key performers to depart through free-agency, and traded away a 40-goal man. It may have been worth it. While the 2014-15 NHL season is only a month old, t [...]
