Penguins Stun Capitals 3-1

pp0541 A springboard game. That’s what NBCSN analyst Pierre McGuire called Wednesday’s impressive 3-1 Penguins victory over a very good Capitals team on the road. Pierre may be right. A hockey team in search of an identity may have, indeed, found one. It wasn’t so much that the Penguins won as how they won. After failing to convert on an extended 5 [...]

Penguins Update: Decline of a Champion

pp0539 To everything there is a season. While it may seem odd to open a blog post with a Bible verse (Ecclesiastes 3:1), it is appropriate. Everything in our world runs in cycles. The four seasons, for example. Winter, spring, summer, and fall. A time to plant and a time to harvest. The same holds true for hockey teams. They run in cycles, too. Ther [...]

Penguins Update: Power-Play Woes Continue

pp0537 It’s bound to happen. Sooner and later, a puck will glance off of Patric Hornqvist and skitter across the goal line. Or Kris Letang will laser one in from the top of the circle. Or Evgeni Malkin will curl off the half-wall and rip one home. Yes, eventually the black and gold will score a power-play goal. In the meantime, our beloved “Boys of [...]

Penguins Show Moxie

492856814_slide With the wolves of change nipping at their heels, the Pittsburgh Penguins circled the wagons at the Consol Energy Center on Thursday night and slammed the door on an ugly 0-3 start with an impressive 2-0 victory over Ottawa. The turnaround was as stunning as it was unexpected. And most welcome. Everyone contributed. The black and gold got st [...]

Penguins Update: Split Up Crosby and Kessel?

pp0536 After watching the Penguins’ big guns struggle to produce through the early going, I’d like to pose a question. Is it time to split up Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel? I know. To even suggest such a move smacks of panic. Not to mention cruel and unusual punishment. After all, Sid’s waited his whole career—or at least since Marian Hossa l [...]

Penguins Update: First Impressions

pp0535 I know it’s early. Really early. And there’s a ton of hockey to be played this season. However, if first impressions mean anything, I don’t like what I saw from our Penguins on opening night. Sure, we had our moments during the 3-0 loss to Dallas. Evgeni Malkin made a supernatural power move out of the corner, only to be denied by Stars goal [...]

2015-16 Penguins Preview

pp0534 As the Pittsburgh Penguins prepare to open the 49th season of their rich and storied history on Thursday night in Dallas, there’s a palpable sense of anticipation in the air. Just ask team captain Sidney Crosby. “You get excited when you see some of the players we’ve added,” Sid said. If the Penguins feel like a brand [...]

Penguins Sign “Sarge” to a Tryout

00ppfront In his latest in a string of head-turner moves, Penguins GM Jim Rutherford signed veteran defenseman Sergei Gonchar to a tryout contract yesterday. One of the most popular and revered players ever to don the black and gold, Sergei’s happy about the prospect of returning to the ‘Burgh. “I just wanted to play for that team,” he said. “It’ [...]

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.
