Penguins Answer the Bell

649834930_slide “Where the hell have you been Jimmy Braddock?” Actor Paul Giamatti, playing the part of fight manager Joe Gould in the movie Cinderella Man, exclaimed those very words after watching his down-but-not-out fighter dismantle No. 2 heavyweight contender Corn Griffin. I would imagine coach Mike Sullivan uttered a similar phrase on the Penguins’ be [...]

Penguins Update: When the Goin’ Gets Tough…

642144056_slide …the tough get goin.’ At least according to the old adage. It’s crunch time for our Penguins…in more ways than one. Over the next eight days, the black and gold play a murderous stretch of five games. All on the road. Starting Wednesday night with the Winnipeg Jets. Yes, those Winnipeg Jets. The ones who kayoed star defenseman Justin S [...]

Penguins Rally, Skewer Sabres 4-3

(Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images) It was right around this time last season when the Penguins received a divine bit of inspiration, wrapped in the guise of a devastating injury. Remember? March 11, 2016 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus. Evgeni Malkin was checked awkwardly into the end boards during second-period action by Blue Jackets bruiser Dalton Prout and came away favorin [...]

Are the Penguins a Tired Hockey Team?

645413342_slide I don’t have much to go on other than the eye test. Which we all know, hardly qualifies as an exact science. And I truly hate to be the harbinger of bad news.
