Penguins Beef Up

pp0530 Back in 1984 Wendy’s fast-food restaurant struck advertising gold with the catchphrase, “Where’s the beef?” The clever lament could apply to our recent Penguins squads, too. According to James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail, the Pens (with an average weight of 199.6 pounds) were the 25th heaviest team in the NHL to start the 2014-15 season. Th [...]

Penguins Get Kessel

pp0529 What’s the old saying? Desperate times call for desperate measures? In the wake of last season’s disappointing finish—not to mention the recent announcement that owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle are looking to sell—the Penguins went all out to regain their luster. In the biggest trade of the summer Pens GM Jim Rutherford sent [...]

Penguins Fall Short in Game 5

00ppfront I was hoping against hope our Penguins would win Game 5 of their first-round series against the Rangers. If not for themselves, then for goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. No one deserved a victory more. The willowy native of La belle province made 34 saves in a courageous performance that lit up the Madison Square Garden ice. Alas, it wasn’t enough. [...]

Penguins Give Their All

pp0528 Determined to even their series with the nettlesome New York Rangers, the Penguins played 60 minutes of passionate, playoff-style hockey last night at the CONSOL Energy Center. Actually, 63:14 to be exact. Unfortunately, their best wasn’t good enough. Three-plus minutes into overtime Rangers rookie Kevin Hayes poked a loose puck past Marc-An [...]

Slow Start Dooms Penguins

pp0527 In the wake of Saturday’s scintillating victory over the Rangers, I was afraid the Penguins might be too fired up for the start of Game 3. I envisioned one of those first periods where the Pens come out in a ball of fury and outshoot the opposition, say 17-3, but don’t score any goals. Then the other club gets a lucky bounce and it’s all down [...]

Penguins Stun Rangers 4-3

pp0525 Take that, New York. After playing the patsy in Game 1 of their opening-round matchup with the Rangers, the Penguins shoved back on Saturday night. Harkening back to their glory days, the Pens overcame adversity—not to mention atrocious officiating—to beat the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The pulse-pounding 4-3 victory snapped the Pens’ [...]

Penguins Show Heart

pp0522 I don’t know about you. But when Logan Couture misfired on his shootout attempt to clinch a win for the Penguins on Sunday, I stood and cheered. After all, victories have been hard to come by. So have heart-and-soul efforts. That’s precisely what we got against San Jose. Forced to skate with only five defensemen due to cap constraints and in [...]

Are the Penguins Primed for a Collapse?

pp0520 It was a pretty goal. Especially by recent black-and-gold standards. Beau Bennett cruised into the slot, gathered up a loose puck, and slipped it through the goalie’s five-hole. Problem is, it was Marc-Andre Fleury’s five-hole. Bennett’s wrong-way play seems to epitomize the plight of the Penguins, who’ve lost four straight. A team built to [...]

Penguins Update: How Important is Building Through the Draft?

pp0516 A while back I read an article that downplayed the importance of building through the Entry Draft. I beg to differ. Developing young talent is the life blood of any hockey team. Fail to do so, and eventually your team will collapse like a house of cards. Ever since the Penguins won the Cup in 2009, they’ve used draft picks as fodder to trade [...]

Penguins Update: The Unsung Heroes

pp0512 It’s been a topsy-turvy season in Penguin-land. For starters, there’s a new coach and GM. Not to mention tons of personnel changes and the usual spate of injuries and illnesses to contend with. Even team captain and reigning Art Ross and Hart Trophy winner Sidney Crosby hasn’t been immune, enduring an uncharacteristically epic scoring drought [...]
