2014 Penguins Free Agents

pp0490 With the NHL free agent signing period set to begin July 1, here’s a list of Penguins free agents by category. Unrestricted free agents (such as Jussi Jokinen and Matt Niskanen) may sign with any team without compensation. Under certain conditions restricted free agents may sign with other teams. The Pens then would receive compensation in t [...]

Rangers Give Penguins the Boot

pp0484 While watching the Penguins fall to the Rangers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Tuesday night my friend and boss, Dave Wright, turned to me and said, “The Pens are missing something, aren’t they?” Truer words were never spoken. It wasn’t that our boys didn’t give their all. Unlike Games 5 and 6, when the Pens’ battle level w [...]

Penguins Push Rangers to the Brink

pp0481 Paced by two-point efforts from superstars Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby, the Penguins outclassed the fading New York Rangers, 4-2, on Wednesday night to grab a commanding 3-1 lead in their second-round series. Despite losing defenseman Brooks Orpik late in the first period to an apparent knee injury, the black and gold limited the Rangers [...]

Playoff Penguins Show True Colors

pp0479 At the end of each episode of the old Lone Ranger TV show someone would invariably ask, “Who was that masked man?” Following the Penguins’ 2-0 triumph over the Rangers in Game 3 on Monday night, local fans could be excused for asking, “Who are those guys wearing the black and gold?” After struggling to hold leads during their first-round seri [...]

Penguins Nearly Perfect in 3-0 Win

pp0477 There are so many positives to draw from the Penguins’ 3-0 whitewash of the New York Rangers in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Semifinals series I scarcely know where to begin. Indeed, following an undisciplined start on Sunday night that saw the black and gold whistled for three minor penalties in seven minutes, the Pens shifted into top [...]

Are the Penguins Jelling at the Right Time?

pp0461 Maybe it’s too early to ponder that question. There are a lot more games to be won before the Penguins can dream of hoisting the Stanley Cup. Yet there are reasons to believe. Remember Game 3, when the Pens were reeling from an overtime loss and Columbus had them in an early hole? Instead of folding like a cheap suit, our boys stung the Blue [...]

Penguins Roll Past Columbus 3-1

pp0459 Through the first four games of their opening-round series with Columbus—and ever since the Olympic break—the Penguins have looked like a team in search of an identity. They may have found one on Saturday night. Called out by coach Dan Bylsma for a less-than-stellar effort in Game 4 and under intense fire from the local media, the Pens circl [...]

Penguins Update: What a Comeback

pp0456 WOW. That was my initial reaction to the Penguins’ stunning 4-3 win over Columbus in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on Monday night. After spotting the Blue Jackets an early two-goal lead, the Pens erupted for four goals in the final 20 minutes and change to snatch a dramatic victory from the jaws of certain defeat. Just as im [...]

Game Two Loss a Microcosm of What Ails the Penguins

pp0455 There’s an old saying—idle hands are the devil’s workshop. It also applies to the Penguins when they play with a lead. Who knows what evil lurks in the minds of our Pens (and the coaching staff) when they’re up by a goal or two? Saturday night’s galling Game 2 loss to Columbus in double overtime was a prime example. Early in the second period [...]

Penguins Try Everyman Approach: Add Goc and Stempniak

pp0440 What a difference a year makes. Eleven months ago Penguins fans were dancing in the streets following GM Ray Shero’s blockbuster deadline deals for Jarome Iginla, Jussi Jokinen, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. And this season? Not so much. Shero tried to add some glitter. He vigorously pursued Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler, only to be rebuffed. [...]
