Flyers Feast, Penguins Fizzle in Game 1

00ppfront One of these days the Penguins are going to figure out how to play 60 minutes of solid hockey against the archrival Flyers. Steel City fans better pray that day comes soon—say, in time for Friday night’s Game 2 at CONSOL Energy Center. If not, it could be an awfully short postseason for the boys from the ‘Burgh. In a virtual replay of previou [...]

Malkin Gets 50, Penguins Dump Flyers 4-2

00ppfront For a game that was meaningless in terms of its impact on the standings, Saturday afternoon’s contest between the Penguins and Flyers sure caused a stir. In the wake of last weekend’s brawl-marred Philly victory, neither team was letting its guard down. This would explain why the Pens summoned heavyweight Steve MacIntyre from their Wilkes-Bar [...]

Flyers Rally, Smoke Sputtering Penguins 6-4

00ppfront In all likelihood the Penguins and the Flyers will clash in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs during the very near future. If Sunday’s matinee contest at CONSOL Energy Center was a preview, the Pens could be in big trouble. After striking for two quick goals, the home team crumbled like the dome on the old Civic Arena en route to [...]

Crosby, Penguins Carve Up Sabres 5-3

00ppfront Fresh off a pair of dismal losses to the New York Islanders, the Penguins traveled to Buffalo to take on the Sabres at First Niagara Center on Friday night. Arguably the league’s hottest team, Lindy Ruff’s crew hardly fit the bill of a patsy. Indeed, the hungry young Sabres entered the contest on a five-game winning streak. Fortunately, the P [...]

Penguins Stand Pat at Trade Deadline

00ppfront Sometimes in hockey it’s the trades you don’t make that can best help your team. And so it was with Penguins general manager Ray Shero. As the 2012 NHL trade deadline approached he took a good, long look at his club, weighed the comparative strengths and weaknesses against a decidedly underwhelming pool of available talent, and chose to stick [...]

Penguins Starch Blue Jackets 4-2

00ppfront Entering Sunday afternoon’s contest with Columbus at CONSOL Energy Center, the Penguins were keenly aware of their recent penchant for tanking in the second of back-to-back games. Determined to beat the “back-end blues,” the Pens rode a pair of power-play goals and a 22-save performance by rookie Brad Thiessen to a 4-2 win over the visiting B [...]

Super Geno Powers Penguins Past Lightning 8-1

00ppfront Look … up in the sky. It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s “Super Geno!” Okay, maybe likening Penguins center Evgeni Malkin to Superman is a bit over the top. After all, he doesn’t wear a cape and he can’t exactly fly, although you might have a hard time convincing NHL goalies. However, there are a growing number of teams that wish they could [...]

Penguins Pay a Price; Fall to Habs in a Shootout

00ppfront Entering Tuesday night’s contest at the Bell Centre, the Penguins had a chance to accomplish something they’ve never done during their 45-year history. Namely, sweep a season series with Montreal. Too bad the Canadiens weren’t in a cooperative mood. Paced by Carey Price’s 32 saves, the Habs nipped the Pens 3-2 on a shootout winner by Tomas Pl [...]

Penguins Burn Leafs 5-4 in Shootout

00ppfront I’ve pretty much given up trying to come up with superlatives to describe the Penguins’ 5-4 shootout win over Toronto at CONSOL Energy Center on Tuesday night. Awesome? Too trite. Spine-tingling? Close, but no cigar. Amazing? Gettin’ warm. It wasn’t enough that the Pens overcame a 4-1 third-period deficit—not to mention a stirring two-goal ef [...]

Hot Rangers Melt Slumping Penguins 3-1

00ppfront When the Penguins and New York Rangers clashed at CONSOL Energy Center on Friday night, it was a definitive case of two teams headed in opposite directions. While the streaking Rangers (8-1 in their last nine) had scaled to the top of the overall standings, the skidding Pens (7-7 since Nov. 29) were struggling to keep pace in the race for Atl [...]
