Penguins Playoff Update: Let’s Hope History Doesn’t Repeat Itself

Buried deep within the Penguins’ glorious Game Five victory over the Predators on Thursday night is a most disturbing pattern. One I feel compelled to write about in hopes of dispelling any bad juju or lingering negative mojo. Go back with me eight years, if you will, to June of 2009. Led by superstar Pavel Datsyuk and perennial Norris Trophy [...]

Gameday Poop: Pittsburgh vs Montreal – Game 7 – Down & Dirty

Pens Win Big on Closing Night at Mellon Arena

I Just got back from the Igloo.  That was quite an experience tonight.  The celebration for the closing of the Mellon Arena was quite cool.  There was a lot of nostalgia to be had this evening.  From the very beginning when they brought out all of the past great Penguin players to the TV commercials from eras past that they played on the jumb [...]
