After the Black Friday of FA comes paying the bills of reality

Let me first say thanks to Rick and Phil for inviting me to write here on PenguinPoop. Hopefully, when I do contribute, I can at least maintain the quality of what they have always brought us. Rick Buker recently called July 1st the “Black Friday” of free agency. Rick, I think that was a pretty accurate allusion. As I read that little quip of [...]

Penguins Update: Who’s Out There—Part II

On day two of my Who’s Out There feature, let’s take a look at defensemen and goalies. Defensemen Penguins GM Jim Rutherford stated last week that free-agent Trevor Daley held the key to his off-season plans for the defense. If Daley stuck with the black and gold, JR would sign restricted free agents Brian Dumoulin and Justin Schultz and a d [...]

But they sure played like it in Game 5. From Alex Ovechkin’s clutch game-opening goal and two-point performance to a bounce-back 30-sav [...]

Penguins Push Capitals to Brink

Vying for control of their second-round series, the Penguins and Capitals served up a taut Game 4 thriller last night before a sellout throng at Consol Energy Center. Indeed, the Pens’ 3-2 overtime victory was packed with enough plot twists and momentum shifts to do Alfred Hitchcock proud. The opening scene bore an uncanny resemblance to the [...]
