Penguins Update: Golden Knights Take Center Stage

The NHL arrived in Sin City last night with predictable glitz and fanfare. The Vegas Golden Knights officially revealed their picks last night at the NHL Awards Show before a hometown throng at T-Mobile Arena. Under the direction of owner William Foley and general manager George McPhee, the Golden Knights plucked 30 players from their NHL bre [...]

Fleury Shines as Penguins Topple Blue Jackets

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.

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?

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 [...]
