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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Bailey, Okposo Power Islanders Past Penguins 5-3

00ppfront In the wake of his team’s sloppy 5-3 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma clearly wasn’t a happy camper. He made it plain during Wednesday’s practice session that he expected better defensive play from his troops. “They realize the situation,” Bylsma said. “Players spoke. Coaches spoke.” To make sure his charges got the [...]

Penguins Update: Bylsma a Dapper Dan

00ppfront To say Dan Bylsma has accomplished a lot during his three-plus seasons as Penguins coach would be an understatement roughly the size of Texas. In his first year at the helm Bylsma guided the Pens to a Stanley Cup. Last season he coaxed 106 points out of a team that was walloped by injuries, earning him the Jack Adams (coach of the year) Award [...]

Islanders Ice Penguins 5-3

00ppfront “There are three kinds of lies,” celebrated 19th-Century author Mark Twain was fond of saying. “Lies, damned lies, and statistics.” Twain’s colloquialism seemed an all-too-fitting way to describe Tuesday night’s contest between the Penguins and Islanders at CONSOL Energy Center. The black and gold outshot the visitors 54-25. They dominated th [...]

Penguins Rebound, Whip Devils 5-2

00ppfront As they prepared to square off at CONSOL Energy Center for Sunday night’s tilt, both the Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils felt they had something to prove. The Penguins were determined to bounce back from a sloppy 8-4 loss to Ottawa on Saturday. For the visiting Devils, it was more personal. They hoped to atone for an embarrassing 5- [...]

Piping-Hot Penguins Demolish Devils 5-2

00ppfront Entering Saturday’s matinee contest with New Jersey on St. Patrick’s Day, the Penguins could be forgiven if they were hoping for a little luck o’ the Irish. After all, victories at the Prudential Center have proven to be more elusive than the proverbial pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. As it turns out, the Pens didn’t need any luck (or go [...]

Penguins Update: Adams a Keeper

00ppfront You won’t find Craig Adams on any All-Star ballots. Nor will you see his name listed among the NHL scoring leaders—or among the top Penguins scorers for that matter. Indeed, his major claim to fame would seem to be his exotic birthplace (Seria, Brunei Darussalam). However, Adams is a rare commodity—a player whose value can’t be fully measured [...]
