Penguins Stun Capitals 3-1

pp0541 A springboard game. That’s what NBCSN analyst Pierre McGuire called Wednesday’s impressive 3-1 Penguins victory over a very good Capitals team on the road. Pierre may be right. A hockey team in search of an identity may have, indeed, found one. It wasn’t so much that the Penguins won as how they won. After failing to convert on an extended 5 [...]

Penguins Update: Decline of a Champion

pp0539 To everything there is a season. While it may seem odd to open a blog post with a Bible verse (Ecclesiastes 3:1), it is appropriate. Everything in our world runs in cycles. The four seasons, for example. Winter, spring, summer, and fall. A time to plant and a time to harvest. The same holds true for hockey teams. They run in cycles, too. Ther [...]

Penguins Show Moxie

492856814_slide With the wolves of change nipping at their heels, the Pittsburgh Penguins circled the wagons at the Consol Energy Center on Thursday night and slammed the door on an ugly 0-3 start with an impressive 2-0 victory over Ottawa. The turnaround was as stunning as it was unexpected. And most welcome. Everyone contributed. The black and gold got st [...]

2015-16 Penguins Preview

pp0534 As the Pittsburgh Penguins prepare to open the 49th season of their rich and storied history on Thursday night in Dallas, there’s a palpable sense of anticipation in the air. Just ask team captain Sidney Crosby. “You get excited when you see some of the players we’ve added,” Sid said. If the Penguins feel like a brand [...]

Penguins Update: Toughness Still an Issue

00ppfront January 28 at the Verizon Center in Washington. Six minutes to play. Then-Pens defenseman Christian Ehrhoff attempts to ram Alex Ovechkin into the sideboards. With an almost excuse-me sweep of his forearm, the Caps’ superman turns the tables and flattens the black-and-gold defender. Ehrhoff sustains a concussion. There were other incidents li [...]

Penguins Defense a Worry

pp0531 Give Penguins GM Jim Rutherford credit. Under less-than-ideal circumstances, he’s done his utmost to breathe new life into a franchise that’s dropped a peg or two over the past couple of seasons. The acquisition of super-sniper Phil Kessel? A bold stroke. Ditto the flurry of moves that saw the Pens add Nick Bonino, Eric Fehr and [...]

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 [...]
