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 [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins Fans, Do the Unthinkable; Cheer For NY Rangers

RagsBs As vile as it tastes. As dirty as you feel. As much as this goes against every fiber of your Penguins-fan being… Cheer for the Rangers tonight. Or at the very least hope for a mutual massacre that results in a 1-0 Rangers win. Why? Because it’s the Cup, and that’s bigger than my disdain for any division rival. There is no su [...]

Can the Penguins Beat the Flyers?

00ppfront After watching Philadelphia cut through the black and gold like a knife going through a tub of warm butter in Games 1 and 2, the question on everyone’s mind is, “can the Penguins beat the Flyers?” The answer is yes. But first, a history lesson. Step into my time machine, if you will, and set the date for April 26, 1992. Fresh off a dismal 7-2 [...]

Penguins Crunch Rangers 5-2, Clinch Fourth Seed

00ppfront The Penguins passed a big test against the Rangers as they tuned up for the Stanley Cup playoffs at CONSOL Energy Center on Thursday night. Fueled by two-point games from Chris Kunitz, Kris Letang, Evgeni Malkin, and Jordan Staal—not to mention a tidy 35-save effort by Marc-Andre Fleury—the black and gold spanked the Eastern Conference champs [...]

Penguins History: Eddie “The Entertainer” Shack

Shack He wasn’t the best player to don a Penguins jersey. Not by a long shot. But few players in the history of the National Hockey League ever generated more press—or cultivated a more loyal following—than Edward Steven Phillip Shack. Born of hearty Ukrainian stock, Shack grew up in Sudbury, Ontario. As a teenager he worked in a coal mine and a lo [...]

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 [...]

Crosby’s Return v. Rangers More About Heart than Scoreboard

00ppfront This is awfully dramatic timing, isn’t it? Think about it: huge game in our series with the New York Rangers as the Pens sniff at a number-one seed; on the road in MSG against a bitter rival; our very own Charlie Conway… er… Sidney Crosby back in the lineup. We are one slow-motion action montage set to a Foo Fighters song aw [...]

Penguins Flower Power Stymies Rangers

00ppfront Entering Tuesday night’s contest between the Penguins and Rangers at CONSOL Energy Center, much of the pre-game buzz focused on Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, and rightfully so. After all, “King Henrik” had posted some extraordinary numbers, including a microscopic 1.77 goals against average and a stunning .940 save percentage. By compariso [...]

Penguins History: Duane Rupp

Rupp Next to Ron Stackhouse, perhaps no Penguin was less appreciated in his time than defenseman Duane Rupp. Ironically, the fans’ dissatisfaction stemmed from a similar cause. Like Stackhouse, Rupp was a big player for his day (6’1” 195) who didn’t fit the mold of a stay-at-home bruiser. A product of the “Original Six” era, Rupp became New York R [...]

Penguins Topple Mighty Rangers 4-1

00ppfront It’s hard to believe that scarcely seven days ago observers (like me) were ready to shovel dirt on the Penguins following their sixth-straight loss. What a difference a week makes. In arguably their finest effort of the season, the piping-hot Pens rode the stellar goaltending of Marc-Andre Fleury and another big-time performance by Evgeni Mal [...]
