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 [...]

Hot Rangers Melt Slumping Penguins 3-1

00ppfront When the Penguins and New York Rangers clashed at CONSOL Energy Center on Friday night, it was a definitive case of two teams headed in opposite directions. While the streaking Rangers (8-1 in their last nine) had scaled to the top of the overall standings, the skidding Pens (7-7 since Nov. 29) were struggling to keep pace in the race for Atl [...]

Gameday Poop: Pittsburgh Penguins vs Rangers – January 25

pp0164 Game time is 7:00PM and can be seen in Super HD at MSG or regular HD on Versus Where is Marion Gaborik, where are the Rangers? The Rangers have been shut out in 4 of their last 7 games and are slowly playing themselves out of playoff contention. The big thing going for the Rangers this evening is that the Penguins have yet to ring up a shutou [...]

Pens Win Opener: Beat Rangers 3-2

00ppfront It was an electrifying evening at the old Igloo last night.  I think the town was buzzing more last night then any of the Stanley Cup games.  Everyone was in town early last night.  All of the usual watering holes were extra crowded, traffic was crazy and everywhere you looked you could see Penguin’s gear.  For a miserable, rainy night, [...]
