Penguins History: Remembering Jags

When I learned Jaromir Jagr had passed through waivers last week and returned to his native Czech Republic—effectively ending his NHL career—I started to tap out some memories as a comment to an earlier post. As the recollections came flooding back, I decided to pull my comments and honor ‘Jags’ with a full-blown post. My timing’s a bit off, [...]

Penguins Tumble to New Low

The date was February 8, 2016. On that chilly Monday evening, the Penguins—still transforming under new coach Mike Sullivan—gave a delicious preview of what was in store.

Indeed, just as the natural seasons go through cycles, so do the fortunes of sports teams. Even the mightiest of champions aren’t immune to the ravages [...]

Penguins Update: Ouch!

It was another Thursday evening. March 22, 1984, to be exact. Before Mario Lemieux, way before our first Stanley Cup. During the darkest era in Penguins history, the “Boys of Winter”—as eminently forgettable a bunch as ever stumbled around an NHL rink—waddled into their personal den of horrors, the Philadelphia Spectrum, and were annihilated [...]
