Penguins Stanley Cup Update: A Familiar Ring

pp0629 The history of the Pittsburgh Penguins is filled with anomalies and precursors. Consider, for example, the strange case involving three of the team’s brightest stars—Michel Briere, Mario Lemieux, and Sidney Crosby. If you add the uniform numbers of Briere (21) and Mario (66), it equals Sid’s 87. Stuff like that. Along those lines, the paths [...]

Penguins Update: An Evening with Pierre and Grover

00ppfront Okay, this really isn’t about the Penguins. But with my journalistic well a little dry, I thought I’d shift gears and take a moment to share about a great new app…and cool little experience…with our PP readers.

His dad, Erich Kuhnhackl, was a larger-than-life figure (6’5” 213) who cut a wide swath across his country’s hockey landscape. During a legendary career that spanned 19 seasons in Germany and two in Switzerland, the elder Kuhnhackl tallied an a [...]

Penguins Get Offensive

pp0599 It ain’t supposed to happen. Not in today’s National Hockey League. One dominated by gargantuan goalies in oversized pads who take away the bottom half of the net simply by dropping to their knees. Our Pittsburgh Penguins have been positively offensive. I’m not referring to on-ice behavior (fourth fewest penalty minutes in the league). I’m t [...]
