Penguins Playoff Update: Let’s Hope History Doesn’t Repeat Itself

Buried deep within the Penguins’ glorious Game Five victory over the Predators on Thursday night is a most disturbing pattern. One I feel compelled to write about in hopes of dispelling any bad juju or lingering negative mojo. Go back with me eight years, if you will, to June of 2009. Led by superstar Pavel Datsyuk and perennial Norris Trophy [...]

Sid-sational Penguins Mash Nashville, Grab Series Lead

“He’s done three things tonight I’ve never seen him do before.” Those words were uttered by good friend and Wright’s Gym member Dave Karpinski, shortly after Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby narrowly missed cashing in last night with an improbable, corkscrewing effort. I readily agreed. It seemed to me Crosby was inventing a new move nearly [...]

Standard procedure for most participants. Or he could join his teammates for a Monday afternoon practice. Sid chose the latter. His black-and-gold teammates ha [...]

Penguins Stanley Cup Preview: Jaws Alert

I’ll be honest. I don’t know a whole lot about the Penguins’ opponent for the upcoming Stanley Cup Finals. A quick scan of the San Jose Sharks’ roster tells me they’re for real. Their postseason stats literally leap off the computer screen. Captain Joe Pavelski tops all NHL playoff scorers with 13 goals. Logan Couture leads the way in [...]
