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 [...]

Penguins Defense Stands Tall

pp0480 Having posted consecutive shutouts against the stubborn New York Rangers, Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury has received tons of praise, and deservedly so. “Flower” is enjoying by far his best postseason since 2009, when he helped the Pens win the Cup. The oft-maligned defense deserves some love, too. As a group they’ve been nothing short of [...]

Are the Penguins Jelling at the Right Time?

pp0461 Maybe it’s too early to ponder that question. There are a lot more games to be won before the Penguins can dream of hoisting the Stanley Cup. Yet there are reasons to believe. Remember Game 3, when the Pens were reeling from an overtime loss and Columbus had them in an early hole? Instead of folding like a cheap suit, our boys stung the Blue [...]

Sweet Georgia Brown: Penguins on Shaky Ground

pp0441 During each of the past three seasons the Pittsburgh Penguins rocketed through March and April, only to pull an el foldo in the playoffs. This year Dan Bylsma’s crew seems to be trying a totally different approach—play as poorly as possible in the stretch run and hope to heat up in the postseason. With a 5-4-2 record since the Olympic break, [...]

Penguins Try Everyman Approach: Add Goc and Stempniak

pp0440 What a difference a year makes. Eleven months ago Penguins fans were dancing in the streets following GM Ray Shero’s blockbuster deadline deals for Jarome Iginla, Jussi Jokinen, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. And this season? Not so much. Shero tried to add some glitter. He vigorously pursued Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler, only to be rebuffed. [...]

Is the Penguins’ Defense Good Enough?

pp0431 Back in 1973 the Philadelphia Flyers drafted defenseman Larry Goodenough with their second-round pick. Cleverly nicknamed “Izzy,” Goodenough enjoyed some early success with Philly before fizzling later on. It made me think of the Penguins’ defense. As it’s currently constructed, is the black-and-gold blueline corps good enough to anchor a Sta [...]

Penguins Update: Injuries a Blessing in Disguise?

pp0413 It’s safe to say the Penguins have endured more than their share of hardship this year. With key performers such as Paul Martin and Rob Scuderi dropping like flies, the black and gold ranked fourth in the NHL with 161 man-games lost to injury as of December 15—a staggering total at this stage of the season. While it’s never a good thin [...]

Penguins Update: Despres Returns; D’Agostini Waived

00ppfront It’s getting so you can’t tell who’s on the ice and who’s in the hospital ward for the Penguins these days. In rapid succession the club lost Beau Bennett (wrist surgery), Tanner Glass (broken hand) and, now, top defenseman Paul Martin (broken tibia). Combined with previous injuries to defensive stalwart Rob Scuderi and forward Chuck Kobasew [...]

Penguins Update: First Quarter Report

pp0405 As the Penguins round the quarter pole of the 2013-14 season, I thought it might be an appropriate time to review the Top Five Pluses (and Minuses) so far. (more…)

Video: Penguins Sidney Crosby in Full Face Gear Skating and Shooting Pucks

Sidney Crosby Face Shield Penguins Sidney Crosby, James Neal and Paul Martin skated and shot pucks around before the Pittsburgh Penguins practice today.  Crosby wore a full face shield.  This is a great sign that Crosby may be ready to come back soon.  It is also good sign that James Neal may not have a severe concussion.  Paul Martin had surgery to repair a broken bo [...]
