Fleury Shines as Penguins Topple Blue Jackets

670899800_slide I may need therapy after this one. In terms of gut-wrenching momentum swings and plot twists, last night’s 5-2 series clincher over Columbus in Game 5 might well have been the most emotionally draining Penguins game I’ve ever witnessed. I’ve seen some doozies over the years, but this one tops ‘em all. Seated squarely atop a razor’s edge for [...]

Stayin’ Alive, Blue Jackets Nip Penguins 5-4

670020768_slide Say this for our Penguins. They’re consistent. While Columbus charged out of the starting gate in Game 4, snorting and blowing like the proverbial bull in search of a china shop, the Pens once again seemed content to shuffle along like their Antarctic namesake. Hoping, no doubt, to overtake the Blue Jackets in tortoise vs. the hare fashion, a [...]

At least until the Blue Jerkets …er Jackets…tried to extract a pound of flesh in the final minute of play. The first period? Heart-attack city. You see, I was under the misguided impression the teams couldn’t possibly duplicate t [...]

Playoff Preview: Can the Penguins Survive Columbus?

664635790_slide It’s the matchup I’ve dreaded since early in the season. Starting Wednesday night at PPG Paints Arena, the Penguins square off against the bristling Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. I’ll begin my post with an affirmation. I believe the Pens have enough skill, speed and grit to beat Columbus. I firmly belie [...]

Penguins Master Columbus, Gain Inside Track on Home-Ice Advantage

664648728_slide (1) In a preview of their probable upcoming playoff series, the Penguins made a statement—and perhaps gained an edge—with a convincing 4-1 victory over Columbus last night before a packed house at PPG Paints Arena. Predictably, the contest was a clash of contrasting styles. Led by heavyweight forwards Josh Anderson, Scott Hartnell and Boone Jenne [...]
