Penguins Update: The Boston Massacre

pp0410 More than any Penguins’ defeat in recent memory, last night’s gut-wrenching 3-2 loss at the hands of the Big, Bad Bruins at TD Garden left a bad taste in my mouth and set off a tidal wave of emotions. It wasn’t so much that the Penguins lost as how they lost. After giving a valiant effort for 58 emotionally charged minutes, they leaked for tw [...]

Penguins an Easy Opponent?

pp0404 There was a time in the not-too-distant past when Pittsburgh Penguins opponents hated visiting the Steel City. Not only would they have to face a lethal lineup featuring hungry young stars such as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but they knew they’d absorb more than a few bumps and bruises, too. Now it seems, opponents are having far too eas [...]

Penguins History: Toughest Fighters

pp0402 For my fourth and final installment on the toughest Penguins ever, I’ve listed the guys I’d most want to have with me if I were entering a dark alley. 1. Bob “Battleship” Kelly (1974-77) As a 27-year-old rookie with St. Louis, Kelly beat reigning heavyweight king Dave Schultz twice in a preseason game. Able to intimidate foes simply by skatin [...]

Should the Penguins Call Up Steve MacIntyre?

00ppfront I was mulling over the Penguins’ huge division rivalry game versus the Rangers tonight at Madison Square Garden when a thought popped into my head. Actually, it was more of a question. Should the Pens recall enforcer Steve MacIntyre from Wilkes-Barre for this evening’s contest? It’s no secret that John Tortorella’s crew likes to play nasty. W [...]

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 [...]

Hot Rangers Melt Slumping Penguins 3-1

00ppfront When the Penguins and New York Rangers clashed at CONSOL Energy Center on Friday night, it was a definitive case of two teams headed in opposite directions. While the streaking Rangers (8-1 in their last nine) had scaled to the top of the overall standings, the skidding Pens (7-7 since Nov. 29) were struggling to keep pace in the race for Atl [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins Power Play Needs a Big Change

00ppfront Drastic times call for drastic measures!  The Pens power play is mired in drastic times.  Coach Dan needs to take drastic measures to make the power play even remotely effective.  I am not sure what the answer is, but I would start with taking Kris Letang off of the number one unit.  He is trying too hard, gripping the stick too hard or whate [...]

Video: PK Subban Tries to Take Off Rupp’s Head – No Penalty!

00ppfront Surely everyone in Pittsburgh is familiar with PK Subban’s antics.  You remember the guy who purposely swung his leg out to trip Jordan Staal and had his skate blade go through the top of Staal’s foot.  This time Subban purposely swings his stick at Mike Rupp’s head trying to injure him because he is upset he got checked.  T [...]

Penguins Hitting on All Cylinders

00ppfront Last night the Pens pounded the Columbus Blue Jackets 7-2.  Pittsburgh now has points in the last 12 games.  Crosby extended his scoring streak to 15 games with two goals.  Letang had two more assists.  He is now two points behind Dustin Byfuglien for the scoring lead among defensemen. In addition, some of the “role” players also [...]

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 [...]
