Senators Chill Hot Penguins 8-4

00ppfront Entering Saturday night’s contest with the Penguins at Scotiabank Place, the backpedaling Ottawa Senators had lost three straight, including an embarrassing 5-1 shellacking at the hands of Montreal on Friday. They were in desperate need of a win, not to mention some offense (nine goals in their past six games). Remarkably, the high-flying Pen [...]

Penguins Maul Predators 5-1

Sidney Crosby When the Nashville Predators rolled into town to take on the Penguins in a big cross-conference tilt on Thursday evening, all eyes were focused on an intriguing matchup between Marc-Andre Fleury and the Preds’ equally gifted Pekka Rinne. However, the battle of the league’s winningest goalies proved to be no contest. Paced by Fleury’s 29 [...]

Penguins Update: Cooke Reclaims Lost Season

00ppfront When Penguins winger Matt Cooke received his team’s Masterton Trophy nomination last Saturday, it provided a well-deserved moment of vindication. Indeed, few players in the annals of hockey history have undergone a more dramatic transformation than the former Public Enemy No. 1. “I’m honored,” he told Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Revie [...]

Piping-Hot Penguins Demolish Devils 5-2

00ppfront Entering Saturday’s matinee contest with New Jersey on St. Patrick’s Day, the Penguins could be forgiven if they were hoping for a little luck o’ the Irish. After all, victories at the Prudential Center have proven to be more elusive than the proverbial pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. As it turns out, the Pens didn’t need any luck (or go [...]

Penguins Matt Cooke is the Perfect Winger for Sidney Crosby

Cooke & Crosby Over the years the Penguins, a team known for their great locker room chemistry, have gotten by without great line chemistry on the ice. Sidney Crosby, not unlike Mario Lemieux in his heyday, has seen players come and go on his line. Sometimes players don’t last 60 minutes as his winger. Evgeni Malkin on the other hand has found the per [...]

Penguins Win Ninth in a Row: Blast Bruins 5-2

00ppfront As the old saying goes, “the bigger they are the harder they fall.” The adage certainly held true during Sunday afternoon’s matinee battle between Pittsburgh and Boston. Painting a bulls-eye on mammoth defenseman Zdeno Chara, the Penguins cut the Bruins’ captain and his teammates down to size with a relentless physical assault en route to a 5 [...]

Penguins Stand Pat at Trade Deadline

00ppfront Sometimes in hockey it’s the trades you don’t make that can best help your team. And so it was with Penguins general manager Ray Shero. As the 2012 NHL trade deadline approached he took a good, long look at his club, weighed the comparative strengths and weaknesses against a decidedly underwhelming pool of available talent, and chose to stick [...]

Super Geno Powers Penguins Past Lightning 8-1

00ppfront Look … up in the sky. It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s “Super Geno!” Okay, maybe likening Penguins center Evgeni Malkin to Superman is a bit over the top. After all, he doesn’t wear a cape and he can’t exactly fly, although you might have a hard time convincing NHL goalies. However, there are a growing number of teams that wish they could [...]

Penguins Flower Power Stymies Rangers

00ppfront Entering Tuesday night’s contest between the Penguins and Rangers at CONSOL Energy Center, much of the pre-game buzz focused on Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, and rightfully so. After all, “King Henrik” had posted some extraordinary numbers, including a microscopic 1.77 goals against average and a stunning .940 save percentage. By compariso [...]

Penguins Cooke Crumbles Flyers 6-4

00ppfront Once upon a time the Penguins used to come down with a strange malaise called the “Philly Flu” whenever they traveled cross state to take on Philadelphia. While the Flyers remain one of the NHL’s elite teams, visiting the “City of Brotherly Shove” no longer evokes the same stomach-churning symptoms it once did. Take Saturday afternoon’s match [...]
