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

00ppfront 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 Answer the Bell

pp0435 It’s hard to say whether the Penguins have what it takes to win the Stanley Cup. Conventional wisdom says GM Ray Shero has some holes to fill—especially on the third line. While the team’s championship pedigree may be in question, its heart and soul are not. The Penguins displayed plenty of both against a surprisingly spirited Buffalo squad a [...]

Penguins Update: The Juice is Loose

pp0434 When Ray Shero acquired Jussi Jokinen from Carolina at last season’s trade deadline it barely caused a stir. After all, the Pens’ GM had already amped our emotions to a fever pitch by trading for Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. These days Iginla, Morrow, and Murray are skating for other teams. And Jokinen? Heading int [...]

Penguins Update: Hot ‘n’ Not

pp0418 Here’s a quick glance at who’s hot (and who’s not) for the Penguins over their last ten games leading up to Saturday’s contest with Calgary. The Pens were 7-2-1 during that span. (more…)

Penguins Show Lots of Heart

pp0412 I’ve written on numerous occasions that the Penguins need to be bigger and tougher in order to compete for the Stanley Cup. While I still feel the black and gold would benefit from some extra beef up front, the team’s collective heart is plenty big enough. Last night’s 4-1 victory over Detroit was one of the most courageous efforts I’ve witne [...]

Penguins Update: Air Malkin Takes Flight

pp0407 Contact Pittsburgh International Airport and have them clear the runways. Better warn NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby to step aside, too. There’s a new jumbo jet cruising down the tarmac and it’s about to take flight. It’s called “Air Malkin.” Although my intro may be a bit clunky, I can assure you there’s nothing hokey about Evgeni Malkin’s [...]

Penguins Update: First Quarter Report

pp0405 As the Penguins round the quarter pole of the 2013-14 season, I thought it might be an appropriate time to review the Top Five Pluses (and Minuses) so far. (more…)

Penguins Update: Bylsma Pushes the Right Buttons

pp0350 There’s an old adage in sports—ride the horse that brung ya.’ (Or something like that.) Thank goodness Penguins coach Dan Bylsma paid it no mind as filled out his lineup card for Thursday’s critical Game 5 matchup with the pesky New York Islanders. I’ve been critical of the Pens’ skipper in the past for what I felt were questionable personnel [...]

Video: Penguins Neal Viciously Slashed by Islanders Hamonic, Doesn’t Return

pp0376 James Neal was viciously slashed by NY Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic during a Penguins 5 on 3 powerplay in the second period of Wednesday night’s playoff game.  While it is being speculated that Neal had a lower body injury after a clean check by Hamonic, you can clearly see in the first video that it is Neal’s right hand th [...]

Video: Penguins Sidney Crosby in Full Face Gear Skating and Shooting Pucks

Sidney Crosby Face Shield Penguins Sidney Crosby, James Neal and Paul Martin skated and shot pucks around before the Pittsburgh Penguins practice today.  Crosby wore a full face shield.  This is a great sign that Crosby may be ready to come back soon.  It is also good sign that James Neal may not have a severe concussion.  Paul Martin had surgery to repair a broken bo [...]
