Penguins Update: The Farnham (and Bailey) Circus

pp0540 Yesterday was a sad day for Penguins fans who like a little mustard on their hot dog. Bobby Farnham, the crowd-pleasing buzz-saw with the enormous heart, was claimed on waivers by the New Jersey Devils. The move was more symbolic than anything. The modestly skilled marauder wasn’t going to be an effective player for the Pens. Not with pacifi [...]

Penguins Update: Toughness Still an Issue

00ppfront January 28 at the Verizon Center in Washington. Six minutes to play. Then-Pens defenseman Christian Ehrhoff attempts to ram Alex Ovechkin into the sideboards.

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 [...]
