Penguins Find Winning Recipe

pp0553 Heading into Thanksgiving, our Pittsburgh Penguins may have discovered a winning recipe. Start with a generous portion of production from superstars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Season with a total-team effort. And voila…a delicious 4-3 overtime victory over St. Louis. A fortnight after serving up a turkey in New Jersey, the Pens gave th [...]

Penguins Update: What’s Wrong With Sid?

pp0552 It’s a question asked by virtually every Penguins fan. What’s wrong with Sidney Crosby? A prickly one, to be sure. With no easy answers. Heck, this was supposed to be a breakout season for Sid. Especially with sniper Phil Kessel rolling into town to ride shotgun. Instead, the Nova Scotia native’s been held off the scoresheet a stunning 13 ti [...]

Penguins Bedeviled

pp0549 The Mike Johnston Watch has officially restarted. Indeed, in the wake of Saturday’s dismal 4-0 drubbing at the hands of New Jersey—one of the worst inflicted on a Penguins team in years—MJ may want to dust off his resume. Or deny any association with the team. Talk about lifeless. The Penguins could’ve saved ownership some bucks by seeking a [...]

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 [...]

The Jagr Saga: Time for Penguins Fans to Bury the Hatchet

pp0411 When New Jersey winger Jaromir Jagr stepped onto the ice last night at CONSOL Energy Center, I was hoping against hope that the partisan crowd would let bygones be bygones and treat the future Hall-of-Famer with some dignity and class. Alas, an all-too predictable chorus of boos rained down from the rafters whenever Jagr touched the puck. Rou [...]

Penguins Rebound, Whip Devils 5-2

00ppfront As they prepared to square off at CONSOL Energy Center for Sunday night’s tilt, both the Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils felt they had something to prove. The Penguins were determined to bounce back from a sloppy 8-4 loss to Ottawa on Saturday. For the visiting Devils, it was more personal. They hoped to atone for an embarrassing 5- [...]

Piping-Hot Penguins Demolish Devils 5-2

00ppfront Entering Saturday’s matinee contest with New Jersey on St. Patrick’s Day, the Penguins could be forgiven if they were hoping for a little luck o’ the Irish. After all, victories at the Prudential Center have proven to be more elusive than the proverbial pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. As it turns out, the Pens didn’t need any luck (or go [...]

Devils Deflate Penguins 5-2

00ppfront In 1978 rocker Bruce Springsteen collaborated with Jersey shore pal Southside Johnny Lyon on the tune Trapped Again. Although “the Boss” didn’t have hockey in mind when he wrote the lyrics, it could easily serve as the Penguins’ theme song whenever they play New Jersey. Following an all-too-familiar script, the Pens fell behind early at the P [...]

Tumbling Penguins Drop Fourth in a Row

00ppfront For the past 11 days Dan Bylsma has patiently awaited the victory that would move him past Michel Therrien on the Penguins’ all-time list for coaching wins. If the black-and-gold’s recent results are any indication of what’s in store, the affable skipper might have a long wait. Continuing a dismal stretch that harkens back to the dark final d [...]

Devils Sting Slumbering Penguins 3-1

00ppfront Perhaps it was fitting that the Penguins closed out 2011 the way it began—with a disappointing 3-1 loss. After all, the year was none too kind to the boys from the ‘Burgh. Starting with Sidney Crosby’s concussion on New Year’s Day and continuing with a spate of misfortune to rival the Ten Plagues of Egypt, the Pens endured more than their sha [...]
