Foes Beating Penguins at Their Own Game

pp0642 Let’s go back in time. To Sunday, June 12, 2016. Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Up 3-games-to-2 on the San Jose Sharks, our Pittsburgh Penguins had snatched a 1-0 first period lead on a power-play goal by Brian Dumoulin. Employing their withering puck-possession style to perfection, they dominated the first-period shot clock, 9-4. Everyth [...]

Especially after watching his new charges fold up like a cheap suit during a dismal 6-2 loss to Boston on home ice a week before Christmas. Fortunately for the Pens, “Sully” resisted the temptation to pack his bags and je [...]

Penguins Search for Right Mix on D

pp0505 It’s a no-brainer, right? If you want to be a puck-possession team, you need defensemen who can move the puck. On that count our Penguins get high marks. Kris Letang, Christian Ehrhoff, Paul Martin, and Simon Despres handle the puck with equal parts ability and aplomb. As do Olli Maatta (shoulder surgery) and hot prospect Derrick Pouliot.
