Hallelujah Hollywood: Penguins Repeat!

“We could have clubs for the next eight or nine years like this.” Venerable Eddie Johnston, then the Penguins’ senior advisor, uttered those words shortly after the team won the Stanley Cup back in 2009. How prophetic he was. However, for the longest time—through an unending string of playoff disappointments—it seemed the promise of those day [...]

Sid-sational Penguins Mash Nashville, Grab Series Lead

Here’s a look at how former Penguins performed during the 2016-17 NHL regular season. David Perron and ageless Jaromir Jagr took the scoring honors with 46 points apiece. Marian Hossa and Jordan Staal finished a close second. Each tallied 45 points. Hossa paced the Ex-Pens with 26 goals, followed by James Neal (23). Perron finished a distant [...]
