Penguins Fall 2-1 in Battle of the Birds

00ppfront It’s hard to imagine that a team blessed with elite players such as Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, and Bobby Ryan could be on the outside of the NHL playoff picture looking in. Yet despite a recent 13-2-3 hot streak the Anaheim Ducks entered Wednesday night’s contest with the Penguins at CONSOL Energy Center mired in 13th place in the Western Con [...]

Devils Deflate Penguins 5-2

00ppfront In 1978 rocker Bruce Springsteen collaborated with Jersey shore pal Southside Johnny Lyon on the tune Trapped Again. Although “the Boss” didn’t have hockey in mind when he wrote the lyrics, it could easily serve as the Penguins’ theme song whenever they play New Jersey. Following an all-too-familiar script, the Pens fell behind early at the P [...]

Penguins Rattle Bruins 2-1

00ppfront Entering Saturday afternoon’s matchup of Eastern Conference heavyweights at TD Garden, both Pittsburgh and Boston were experiencing goal-scoring droughts. While the Penguins had been blanked by Toronto in their most recent outing, the Bruins were coming off a lackluster 3-0 whitewashing at the hands of Carolina. Neither team struck pay dirt u [...]

Penguins Burn Leafs 5-4 in Shootout

00ppfront I’ve pretty much given up trying to come up with superlatives to describe the Penguins’ 5-4 shootout win over Toronto at CONSOL Energy Center on Tuesday night. Awesome? Too trite. Spine-tingling? Close, but no cigar. Amazing? Gettin’ warm. It wasn’t enough that the Pens overcame a 4-1 third-period deficit—not to mention a stirring two-goal ef [...]

Penguins Bust Out Against Panthers 4-1

00ppfront Hockey players are famously superstitious. Many suffer from triskaidekaphobia—a fear of the number 13. Fortunately, the Penguins aren’t among them. On the contrary, 13 players have captained the black and gold on a full-time basis. Penguins superstars captured the Art Trophy 13 times. So perhaps it was fitting that the Pens snapped their wors [...]

What’s Ailing the Penguins?

00ppfront Following a typically strong start to the 2011-12 campaign, the Penguins have stumbled along at an unsightly 13-13 clip since the end of October. As the season reaches the halfway mark, the Pens suddenly find themselves in a dogfight to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot. So what’s wrong? The most obvious answer to what’s ailing the Pens is [...]

Devils Sting Slumbering Penguins 3-1

00ppfront Perhaps it was fitting that the Penguins closed out 2011 the way it began—with a disappointing 3-1 loss. After all, the year was none too kind to the boys from the ‘Burgh. Starting with Sidney Crosby’s concussion on New Year’s Day and continuing with a spate of misfortune to rival the Ten Plagues of Egypt, the Pens endured more than their sha [...]

Video: Making Sense of How the NHL Dishes Out Fines & Suspensions

Video:  Making Sense of How the NHL Dishes Out Fines & Suspensions I know people were upset about John Carlson from the Washington Capitals not getting a suspension or even a hearing for throwing his elbow through Matt Cooke’s head.  So I thought I would make a video to explain how the NHL works to try to dispel fans anger.      (more…)

Matt Cooke, Todd Bertuzzi & the Mistake that is the NHL.

Matt Cooke I wrote this piece just after the Matt Cooke suspension was assessed.  Unfortunately, my day jobs sometimes get in the way, I didn’t finish in a pertinent time frame.  Well, Todd Bertuzzi has opened the door for me to submit my thoughts again. The punishment that Matt Cooke got for his flagrant violation is appropriate.  What Matt Cooke did w [...]

First Quarter Report Card

reportcard Well, the season is now 20 games in which means that roughly one quarter of it is gone, and so, just like when you were back in school, it is time to issue the first quarter report card for  the team, the players and the coach. The Team: B- The team has had to make quite a few adjustments this year from welcoming in new players to learning t [...]
