Penguins Show Spunk in Shootout Loss

I’ll admit. Writing about (and rooting for) our Penguins has been a pretty dreary affair of late. With the offense colder than those nasty polar vortexes that descend on the ‘Burgh each January, hopes for a quick start to the season have pretty much gone up in smoke. So has talk of a three-peat.

Are the Penguins a Team in Transition?

Transition is defined by Merriman-Webster as a “passage from one state, stage, subject or place to another.” In a word, change. The times definitely are a changin’ for our Pittsburgh Penguins.

Penguins Update: Leavin’ on a Jet Plane

All my bags are packed. I’m ready to go. I’m standin’ here outside your door. I hate to wake you up to say goodbye. Folks of a certain generation will instantly recognize those lyrics as the opening to John Denver’s timeless classic, Leaving on a Jet Plane.
