Penguins Nearly Perfect in 3-0 Win

pp0477 There are so many positives to draw from the Penguins’ 3-0 whitewash of the New York Rangers in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Semifinals series I scarcely know where to begin. Indeed, following an undisciplined start on Sunday night that saw the black and gold whistled for three minor penalties in seven minutes, the Pens shifted into top [...]

Penguins Fall to Rangers 3-2 in OT

pp0476 Following their Game 7 victory over Philadelphia on Wednesday night, the New York Rangers had less than 48 hours to prepare for their series opener with the Penguins. By contrast, the black and gold were rested and relaxed following three days off. Perhaps a little too relaxed. While the Rangers showed surprising hop to open Game 1, the Pens [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins vs NY Rangers 2014 Playoff Predictions

pp0467 It’s the Pittsburgh Penguins facing off against the New York Rangers for the first time as Metropolitan division foes.  Since the last time the Rangers beat the Penguins in a playoff series was never, the NHL should just hand the series to the Penguins right? We’ve put together an incredible group of writers to predict how the se [...]

Penguins Fans: Winning the Stanley Cup Isn’t Easy

pp0462 For all of you ‘so-called’ Penguin fans who want to continually criticize the Penguin organization and players for not winning the Stanley Cup every year, I would like to present to you some historical data on the NHL.      Without another victory this season, the Penguins will already have had a better year than 22 other teams in the league. [...]

Penguins Close Out Columbus 4-3

pp0460 I’ll say this about our Pittsburgh Penguins. They sure know how to make things interesting. Need proof? Then look no further than Monday night’s scintillating 4-3 victory over Columbus in Game 6 to clinch the opening-round series. Paced by Evgeni Malkin’s second playoff hat trick and Brandon Sutter’s breakaway tally, the high-flying Penguins [...]

Penguins Game Four Loss: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

pp0458 In the wake of the Penguins’ brutal 4-3 overtime loss to Columbus in Game 4, I decided to summarize the team’s Jekyll-and-Hyde performance by breaking it down into three categories: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. THE GOOD — The First Period (or at least the first 11 minutes): The Pens looked fast, crisp and confident as they bolted to [...]

Penguins Update: Sid and Geno by the Numbers

pp0457 There seems to be a growing perception among Penguins fans that superstars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin haven’t done much in the playoffs since achieving total domination during the black-and-gold’s Cup run of 2009. This prompted me to do a little research. Here are Crosby and Malkin’s postseason numbers since ’09, including Games 1-3 of t [...]

Game Two Loss a Microcosm of What Ails the Penguins

pp0455 There’s an old saying—idle hands are the devil’s workshop. It also applies to the Penguins when they play with a lead. Who knows what evil lurks in the minds of our Pens (and the coaching staff) when they’re up by a goal or two? Saturday night’s galling Game 2 loss to Columbus in double overtime was a prime example. Early in the second period [...]

Penguins Golden in 4-3 Win

pp0453 In the hit movie Forrest Gump, Tom Hanks’ character famously uttered the phrase, “Life is like a box chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna’ get.” Lately, that saying’s reminded me a lot of our Penguins. You truly never know what you’re going to get. Take their scintillating 4-3 “gold out” victory over Columbus in Game 1 of the Eastern [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Columbus Blue Jackets 2014 Playoff Predictions

pp0450 The Pittsburgh Penguins start the first round of the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs against a Columbus Blue Jackets team who have played in the NHL for 14 years and have yet to win a playoff game.  Should be a slam dunk right? We’ve put together an incredible group of writers to predict how the series will pan out and at the same time throw [...]
