Penguins Update: The Recchin’ Ball Crashes the Hall

When the Penguins took Mark Recchi in the fourth round of 1988 Entry Draft, it was hardly a lock he’d make the team, let alone go on to a Hall-of-Fame career. Despite scoring 61 goals during his final season of junior hockey, he was passed over by the 21 NHL teams—including the Pens—not once, but three times. Too small, the scouts whispered. [...]

Penguins Playoff Preview: Preds No Easy Prey

It was Thursday, April 13. While working the evening shift at Wright’s Gym, I intermittently glanced up at the Chicago-Nashville hockey game on the big screen TV behind the front desk. Much to my surprise, the visiting Predators shutout the heavily favored Blackhawks, 1-0. Like many fans, I’d envisioned the high-flying ‘Hawks soaring through [...]

Penguins Torch Blue Jackets 4-1

Bracing as it was, the third period of the Penguins’ 4-1 Game 2 triumph over Columbus seemed almost anticlimactic.

After all, our guys haven’t exactly been lighting it up lately. Thank go [...]

Blue Jackets Waste Penguins 7-1

On March 8, 1971, heavyweight boxing champion Joe Frazier met former champ Muhammad Ali in the first of an epic three-fight trilogy. Appropriately dubbed the “Fight of the Century,” the bout hung in the balance until Frazier floored Ali with a vicious left hook in the 15th round to earn a unanimous decision. A different type of slugger-vs-bo [...]

Rust, Penguins Kayo Lightning in Game 7

Lord Stanley, here we come. Or, as inimitable Penguins play-by-play announcer Mike Lange once chirped, “You can spit-shine your shoes. We’re going dancing with Lord Stanley.” The Penguins edged the Tampa Bay Lightning, 2-1, last night in a pulsating Game 7 that virtually throbbed with passion and intensity. Indeed, the 18,638 Consol Energy Ce [...]
