Penguins Plus/Minus

pp0560 As our Penguins prepare to enter a brand-new era under Mike Sullivan, I thought I’d take a moment to reflect on some pluses and minuses through the first third of the 2015-16 season. It’s not meant to be an all-inclusive list. Obviously, players such as Evgeni Malkin and Marc-Andre Fleury deserve praise, as do the unsung defensive tandem of [...]

Penguins Are WYSIWYG

pp0558 Like many Penguins fans, I’ve spent a good part of the season trying to get a read on our team. Hardly an easy task, given last summer’s significant turnover and the black-and-gold’s streaky nature. After waiting 25 games for the Pens to coalesce, I’ve concluded that the answer’s been right under our noses the whole time. We’re WYSIWYG. What [...]

Penguins Update: Perron a Plus

pp0557 It sure was great to see the Penguins’ offense bust loose in San Jose on Tuesday night. Indeed, the five-goal outburst represented the high-water mark for a team that has struggled to light the lamp all season long. Pacing the attack was the line of Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel, and David Perron. The trio combined for a whopping four goals and [...]

Penguins Update: Malkin Leads the Way

pp0556 Thus far, the 2015-16 season hasn’t been especially kind to the Penguins. Or their stars. Sidney Crosby? With points in each of his past five games—including a two-goal night against St. Louis—Sid’s on a bit of a roll. Yet our captain’s producing at a rate well below his customary clip. Kris Letang? Sans the steadying presence of Paul Martin, [...]

Penguins Find Winning Recipe

pp0553 Heading into Thanksgiving, our Pittsburgh Penguins may have discovered a winning recipe. Start with a generous portion of production from superstars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Skate hard for a full 60 minutes. Season with a total-team effort. And voila…a delicious 4-3 overtime victory over St. Louis. A fortnight after serving up a turk [...]

Malkin Shines; Penguins Tame Wild

pp0551 Leave it to Penguins star Evgeni Malkin to put a new spin on an old Teddy Roosevelt quote. Rather than “speak softly and carry a big stick,” as the former U.S. President was fond of saying? How about speak loudly and carry a big stick? Days after expressing his disappointment with the team’s dismal play, Malkin paced the re [...]

Penguins Bedeviled

pp0549 The Mike Johnston Watch has officially restarted. Indeed, in the wake of Saturday’s dismal 4-0 drubbing at the hands of New Jersey—one of the worst inflicted on a Penguins team in years—MJ may want to dust off his resume. Or deny any association with the team. Talk about lifeless. The Penguins could’ve saved ownership some bucks by seeking a [...]

Penguins Johnston Shows Character

pp0547 Few jobs in professional sports come with more pressure—and less security—than coaching in the National Hockey League. Indeed, the average tenure of an NHL head coach is 2.4 years, according to a 2014 study published by Peter Tanner on FiveThirtyEight. Coaching our Penguins? Given the expectations that throb like an extended hangover in the [...]

Penguins Update: The Sprong Conundrum

pp0543 It’s the white elephant in the Penguins’ dressing room. What to do with Daniel Sprong. Keep him? Or send him back to the Quebec League for another year of seasoning. Financial and contractual considerations loom large. If the speedy 6’0″ 180-pounder plays two more games, it’ll lop a year off his entry contract. If he skates in 40 [...]

Penguins Update: Fehr Deal

pp0542 It sure was nice to watch forward Eric Fehr make his black-and-gold debut Saturday night. The Winkler, Alberta native didn’t disappoint, notching a goal and an assist to propel the Penguins to a 4-0 victory over Toronto. A key free-agent pick up, Fehr missed the first 10 games of the campaign due to off-season elbow surgery. Initially expect [...]
