Penguins Show Grit in OT Loss

00ppfront At first blush, there wasn’t a whole lot in the Penguins’ 2-1 overtime loss to Columbus to write about. Indeed, the Pens’ lone goal occurred at 6:13 of the second period on a seemingly innocuous Ian Cole shot from the point that hugged the ice and somehow escaped the detection of Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. Sometimes you need to loo [...]

Kessel, Penguins Get Revenge

640964464_slide He’s the second-leading active goal scorer among American-born players. One with a history of livin’ large on a big stage. Yet Penguins winger Phil Kessel inexplicably was passed over when the United States team was assembled for the World Cup tournament last summer. Bad idea.

Do the Penguins Need a Tocchet?

00ppfront It sure was great to see our Penguins trim New Jersey last night before a big holiday crowd at PPG Paints Arena.

This week in Penguins history started with NBC analyst Mike Milbury saying this about Sidney Crosby on a [...]

Penguins Crunch Rangers 5-2, Clinch Fourth Seed

00ppfront The Penguins passed a big test against the Rangers as they tuned up for the Stanley Cup playoffs at CONSOL Energy Center on Thursday night. Fueled by two-point games from Chris Kunitz, Kris Letang, Evgeni Malkin, and Jordan Staal—not to mention a tidy 35-save effort by Marc-Andre Fleury—the black and gold spanked the Eastern Conference champs [...]
