Devils Deflate Penguins 5-2

00ppfront In 1978 rocker Bruce Springsteen collaborated with Jersey shore pal Southside Johnny Lyon on the tune Trapped Again. Although “the Boss” didn’t have hockey in mind when he wrote the lyrics, it could easily serve as the Penguins’ theme song whenever they play New Jersey. Following an all-too-familiar script, the Pens fell behind early at the P [...]

Penguins Burn Leafs 5-4 in Shootout

00ppfront I’ve pretty much given up trying to come up with superlatives to describe the Penguins’ 5-4 shootout win over Toronto at CONSOL Energy Center on Tuesday night. Awesome? Too trite. Spine-tingling? Close, but no cigar. Amazing? Gettin’ warm. It wasn’t enough that the Pens overcame a 4-1 third-period deficit—not to mention a stirring two-goal ef [...]

Penguins Roll (to) Lucky Seven Against Blues

00ppfront Hockey games can be an awful lot like shooting craps, especially when they go into overtime or a shootout. Games are won and lost on a single shot or a fortunate bounce of the puck, much like a lucky roll of the dice. That’s why it’s nice to have a goalie like Marc-Andre Fleury guarding the pipes. On Tuesday night in St. Louis, “Flower” took [...]

Penguins Malkin-ize Capitals in OT

00ppfront Ever since they were drafted No. 1 and No. 2 overall in 2004, Alex Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin have provided an intriguing contrast in styles—both on and off the ice. While the brash and colorful Ovechkin has grabbed the headlines and endorsement deals, Malkin has quietly gone about his business with a determined excellence. On Sunday afternoo [...]

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 [...]

Malkin, Penguins Short Circuit Lightning 6-3

00ppfront The Tampa Bay Lightning entered Sunday afternoon’s contest with Pittsburgh lugging an unsightly six-game losing streak. If Guy Boucher’s crew was expecting any sympathy from the Penguins—who only recently snapped a six-game slide of their own—they were sadly mistaken. Paced by Evgeni Malkin’s natural hat trick and a pair of power-play tallies [...]

What’s Ailing the Penguins?

00ppfront Following a typically strong start to the 2011-12 campaign, the Penguins have stumbled along at an unsightly 13-13 clip since the end of October. As the season reaches the halfway mark, the Pens suddenly find themselves in a dogfight to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot. So what’s wrong? The most obvious answer to what’s ailing the Pens is [...]

Penguins Defenseman Paul Martin’s Numbers Don’t Make the Point

pp0270 The Pittsburgh Penguins  powerplay ranks 23rd in the league.  The Nashville Predators are the only other team in the league that currently holds a playoff spot with a worse powerplay.  This has been a problem all season and is in no way a reflection of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin being out for the last two months.  The Powerplay was horri [...]

Penguins Hitting on All Cylinders

00ppfront Last night the Pens pounded the Columbus Blue Jackets 7-2.  Pittsburgh now has points in the last 12 games.  Crosby extended his scoring streak to 15 games with two goals.  Letang had two more assists.  He is now two points behind Dustin Byfuglien for the scoring lead among defensemen. In addition, some of the “role” players also [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins Getting on Track

Crosby Skating Hi again folks.  Old Reg has been invisible for a while now.  It turns out my day jobs and other responsibilities have been taking over recently.  I did want to take a few minutes to jot down a few thoughts I had at this point.  1.  It turns out that maybe Sidney Crosby was right about Marc-Andre Fleury.  Crosby told reporters that MAF needed [...]
