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 [...]

Penguins Fall to Rangers 3-2 in OT

pp0476 Following their Game 7 victory over Philadelphia on Wednesday night, the New York Rangers had less than 48 hours to prepare for their series opener with the Penguins. By contrast, the black and gold were rested and relaxed following three days off. Perhaps a little too relaxed. While the Rangers showed surprising hop to open Game 1, the Pens [...]

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 Close Out Columbus 4-3

pp0460 I’ll say this about our Pittsburgh Penguins. They sure know how to make things interesting. Need proof? Then look no further than Monday night’s scintillating 4-3 victory over Columbus in Game 6 to clinch the opening-round series. Paced by Evgeni Malkin’s second playoff hat trick and Brandon Sutter’s breakaway tally, the high-flying Penguins [...]

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 Game Four Loss: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

pp0458 In the wake of the Penguins’ brutal 4-3 overtime loss to Columbus in Game 4, I decided to summarize the team’s Jekyll-and-Hyde performance by breaking it down into three categories: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. THE GOOD – The First Period (or at least the first 11 minutes): The Pens looked fast, crisp and confident as they bolted to [...]

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 Update: Stempniak Provides a Spark

pp0442 Lately the Pittsburgh Penguins haven’t had a whole lot to write home about. The black and gold is mired in an ugly 2-4-1 funk. They’re a mediocre 6-6-2 since the Olympic break. With superstar Evgeni Malkin (hairline foot fracture) joining the ranks of the wounded, the injury bug continues to take a wicked toll. While good news is decidedly to [...]

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. [...]
