Penguins-Capitals: A Playoff Primer

Thirty-four to twenty-one. Sounds like the score of a typical Steelers game, doesn’t it? Except in this case, the numbers represent the Penguins’ postseason won-loss record against the Washington Capitals, their opponent for the upcoming second-round series. Indeed, our Pens have dominated the Caps in Stanley Cup action like no other foe, to [...]

Penguins History: Hardest Hitters

A while back I noticed that Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette had asked the readers of his blog to list their toughest Penguins of all-time. With nothing in particular to write about (always a dangerous thing), I decided to compile my own list of toughest Penguins by category, starting with the Hardest Hitters. Here’s my top five [...]
