Penguins Flower Power Stymies Rangers

00ppfront Entering Tuesday night’s contest between the Penguins and Rangers at CONSOL Energy Center, much of the pre-game buzz focused on Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, and rightfully so. After all, “King Henrik” had posted some extraordinary numbers, including a microscopic 1.77 goals against average and a stunning .940 save percentage. By compariso [...]

Penguins, Letang Lance Lightning 4-2

00ppfront Who said Penguins can’t fly? Certainly not the Tampa Bay Lightning. Entering Sunday night’s contest at CONSOL Energy Center on a red-hot 7-1-2 roll, the Bolts watched an early 2-0 lead evaporate in the face of yet another withering offensive assault by the black and gold. On the heels of an incendiary eight-goal outburst against Winnipeg, the [...]

Malkin Shines as Penguins Thrash Jets 8-5

00ppfront The last time Winnipeg visited the Steel City on March 5, 1996, Petr Nedved scored four goals to lead the Penguins to a 9-4 rout of the Jets. On Saturday afternoon at CONSOL Energy Center, it was déjà vu all over again as the clubs combined for another 13 goals. This time around NHL scoring leader Evgeni Malkin (67 points) led the cavalry cha [...]

Devils Deflate Penguins 5-2

00ppfront In 1978 rocker Bruce Springsteen collaborated with Jersey shore pal Southside Johnny Lyon on the tune Trapped Again. Although “the Boss” didn’t have hockey in mind when he wrote the lyrics, it could easily serve as the Penguins’ theme song whenever they play New Jersey. Following an all-too-familiar script, the Pens fell behind early at the P [...]

Toronto’s MacArthur Parks Penguins 1-0

00ppfront Just when it seemed the high-flying Penguins might never lose, Toronto snapped the black-and-gold’s eight-game winning streak Wednesday night in a taut defensive struggle at Air Canada Centre. Nemesis Clarke MacArthur (seven goals in 20 games versus the Pens) supplied the offense, while James Reimer (25 saves) outdueled Brent Johnson in a bat [...]

Penguins Burn Leafs 5-4 in Shootout

00ppfront I’ve pretty much given up trying to come up with superlatives to describe the Penguins’ 5-4 shootout win over Toronto at CONSOL Energy Center on Tuesday night. Awesome? Too trite. Spine-tingling? Close, but no cigar. Amazing? Gettin’ warm. It wasn’t enough that the Pens overcame a 4-1 third-period deficit—not to mention a stirring two-goal ef [...]

Penguins Roll (to) Lucky Seven Against Blues

00ppfront Hockey games can be an awful lot like shooting craps, especially when they go into overtime or a shootout. Games are won and lost on a single shot or a fortunate bounce of the puck, much like a lucky roll of the dice. That’s why it’s nice to have a goalie like Marc-Andre Fleury guarding the pipes. On Tuesday night in St. Louis, “Flower” took [...]

Penguins Malkin-ize Capitals in OT

00ppfront Ever since they were drafted No. 1 and No. 2 overall in 2004, Alex Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin have provided an intriguing contrast in styles—both on and off the ice. While the brash and colorful Ovechkin has grabbed the headlines and endorsement deals, Malkin has quietly gone about his business with a determined excellence. On Sunday afternoo [...]

Jeffrey and Malkin Shine: Penguins Beat Habs in a Thriller

00ppfront In the midst of a roller-coaster season filled with desperate lows and equally dizzying heights, one thing about the Pittsburgh Penguins is certain. Win, lose or draw, the boys from the ‘Burgh give the fans their money’s worth. Take Friday night’s contest with the Montreal Canadiens for example. After spotting the visitors a 4-2 lead through [...]

Penguins Topple Mighty Rangers 4-1

00ppfront It’s hard to believe that scarcely seven days ago observers (like me) were ready to shovel dirt on the Penguins following their sixth-straight loss. What a difference a week makes. In arguably their finest effort of the season, the piping-hot Pens rode the stellar goaltending of Marc-Andre Fleury and another big-time performance by Evgeni Mal [...]
