Penguins Nip Hurricanes 2-1 in Shootout

00ppfront It wasn’t a pretty win. Especially by recent standards. Indeed, if the Penguins perhaps deserved a better fate during Wednesday’s 3-0 home-ice loss to the Rangers, they were downright lucky to escape from Raleigh last night with a point, let alone two. Contrary to their preferred style of play under Mike Sullivan, the Pens spent a significant [...]

Penguins Update: Looking Ahead

pp0575 “I believe that we will make the playoffs.” With a singular forceful statement, All-Star center Evgeni Malkin reflected the growing sense of optimism over the fortunes of our Pittsburgh Penguins. Almost overnight, it seems, they’ve transformed from a crew of rag-tag underachievers struggling to keep pace in the Eastern Conference playoff chas [...]

Penguins Update: Hagelin, Daley Provide a Spark

pp0574 It isn’t the easiest thing to do. Improving a team through trades. Indeed, there’s a certain hit-or-miss quality about the process that comes with the turf. Kind of like panning for gold nuggets in a partially played-out stream, hoping to strike it rich. Especially if your counterpart senses you’re itching to make a deal. Overplay your hand a [...]

Penguins Get Hagelin from Ducks for Perron, Clendening

00ppfront The Pittsburgh Penguins have a new left wing. Burning the midnight oil in the wake of last night’s 5-4 overtime loss to Tampa Bay, general manager Jim Rutherford swapped underachieving forward David Perron and spare defenseman Adam Clendening to Anaheim for left wing Carl Hagelin. Impetus for the deal? Struggling offenses and disappointing ov [...]

Penguins Give Their All

pp0528 Determined to even their series with the nettlesome New York Rangers, the Penguins played 60 minutes of passionate, playoff-style hockey last night at the CONSOL Energy Center. Actually, 63:14 to be exact. Unfortunately, their best wasn’t good enough. Three-plus minutes into overtime Rangers rookie Kevin Hayes poked a loose puck past Marc-An [...]

Slow Start Dooms Penguins

pp0527 In the wake of Saturday’s scintillating victory over the Rangers, I was afraid the Penguins might be too fired up for the start of Game 3. I envisioned one of those first periods where the Pens come out in a ball of fury and outshoot the opposition, say 17-3, but don’t score any goals. Then the other club gets a lucky bounce and it’s all down [...]

Penguins Stun Rangers 4-3

pp0525 Take that, New York. After playing the patsy in Game 1 of their opening-round matchup with the Rangers, the Penguins shoved back on Saturday night. Harkening back to their glory days, the Pens overcame adversity—not to mention atrocious officiating—to beat the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The pulse-pounding 4-3 victory snapped the Pens’ [...]

Rangers Give Penguins the Boot

pp0484 While watching the Penguins fall to the Rangers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Tuesday night my friend and boss, Dave Wright, turned to me and said, “The Pens are missing something, aren’t they?” Truer words were never spoken. It wasn’t that our boys didn’t give their all. Unlike Games 5 and 6, when the Pens’ battle level w [...]

Powder-Puff Penguins Putrid in 3-1 Loss

pp0483 I was searching for a word that best described the Penguins’ pathetic showing during Sunday night’s abysmal 3-1 loss to the Rangers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Soft immediately came to mind. With a chance to wrap-up their second-round series and atone for a wretched showing in Game 5, the Penguins turned in one of the most [...]

Inspired Rangers Pound Penguins 5-1

pp0482 Inspired by the presence of veteran Martin St. Louis, whose mother passed away the day before, and fueled by a two-goal effort from Derick Brassard, the New York Rangers clobbered the Penguins, 5-1, in Game 5 on Friday night to stave off elimination. Along the way the Rangers snapped an ugly 0-for-36 streak on the power-play with a pair of ma [...]
