Penguins Update: I Was Wrrrr…

00ppfront For those of us ancient enough to remember the TV show Happy Days, it was a classic episode. The one where Fonzie tried to admit he was wrong to Ralph Malph, but couldn’t get the words out. “I was wrrrr…,” stammered the Fonz. Well, the same goes for me. I was wrrrr… about our Penguins. Six weeks ago I predicted a black-and-gold im [...]

Penguins Rally Behind Crosby and Letang: Hunt Down Panthers

00ppfront For the better part of 55 minutes it looked like one of those nights for our Pittsburgh Penguins. You know. Second of back-to-back games. On the road, to boot. Tired legs. No puck luck. Then…BLAM. In a volcanic display of skill, Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang erupted for three goals in just over six minutes to stun the Florida Panthers and sna [...]

Penguins Lose Fehr to Lower-Body Injury

00ppfront Eric Fehr could miss at least a month with a lower-body injury, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan revealed today. The big forward’s legs folded awkwardly beneath him after he was checked by Senators defenseman Mark Borowiecki during the second period of Tuesday’s victory over Ottawa. He exited the ice in visible pain and had to be help [...]

Penguins Dynamic Duo

pp0571 There’ve been two distinct sets of Sidney Crosbys and Kris Letangs skating for the Pittsburgh Penguins this season. The initial pair languished under previous coach Mike Johnston, combining for a paltry seven goals during the Pens’ first 28 games. Since Mike Sullivan took over? It’s as if Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson popped into t [...]

Sullivan vs. Johnston: Comparing the Penguins’ First-Half Numbers

pp0569 With a couple of days between games and nothing in particular to write about, I thought I’d compare the Penguins’ stats under new coach Mike Sullivan to those compiled under former skipper Mike Johnston. While the impromptu analysis didn’t expose anything earth-shattering, it did reveal a few surprises. First, the expected. Based on the numb [...]

Penguins Not Ready for Prime Time

pp0568 After watching Chicago’s dynamic rookie Artemi Panarin shred our Penguins to the tune of four goals over the past two nights, the difference between the organizations became painfully apparent. The Blackhawks sign studs like the undrafted Panarin. We sign duds who struggle to score. Indeed, last night’s ugly 3-1 defeat in the Windy City serv [...]

Penguins Come Alive with Sullivan

pp0567 There must’ve been times early in his tenure as Penguins coach when Mike Sullivan wondered what he’d gotten himself into. Especially after watching his new charges fold up like a cheap suit during a dismal 6-2 loss to Boston on home ice a week before Christmas. Fortunately for the Pens, “Sully” resisted the temptation to pack his bags and je [...]

Penguins Recall Murray, Porter and Sheary

pp0562 In the wake of injuries to goalie Marc-Andre Fleury and winger Beau Bennett, the Penguins have recalled forwards Kevin Porter and Conor Sheary—along with goalie Matt Murray—from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. After skating through the opening two months of the season relatively unscathed, the Pens have been wracked by ailments of late. Pascal Dupuis [...]

Penguins Deal Scuderi to Blackhawks for Daley

pp0561 I remember smiling the day I learned that former GM Ray Shero had signed ex-Penguin Rob Scuderi to a free-agent deal back in the summer of 2013. Broadly. What wasn’t to like? “Scuds” had served as the defensive anchor on another Cup winner—this time in Los Angeles—while mentoring talented young Drew Doughty. I figured Shero had found the per [...]

Penguins Update: Malkin Leads the Way

pp0556 Thus far, the 2015-16 season hasn’t been especially kind to the Penguins. Or their stars. Sidney Crosby? With points in each of his past five games—including a two-goal night against St. Louis—Sid’s on a bit of a roll. Yet our captain’s producing at a rate well below his customary clip. Kris Letang? Sans the steadying presence of Paul Martin, [...]
