Penguins Playoff Update: Shades of ‘92

I remember the incident like it was yesterday. It was Tuesday, May 5, 1992. Game Two of the Patrick Division Finals. Fresh off a rousing come-from-behind conquest of Washington in the opening round of the playoffs, the Penguins had toppled the Rangers—Presidents’ Trophy winners—in Game One at Madison Square Garden.

Fleury Shines as Penguins Topple Blue Jackets

I may need therapy after this one. In terms of gut-wrenching momentum swings and plot twists, last night’s 5-2 series clincher over Columbus in Game 5 might well have been the most emotionally draining Penguins game I’ve ever witnessed.

As if our Penguins were somehow predestined or preordained to win the Cup. A notion reinforced yesterday morning at church. Following the service, I stopped to greet associate pastor an [...]

The Incredible Shrinking Penguins

One of the most popular Sci-Fi movies of the 1950s was The Incredible Shrinking Man. A businessman vacationing with his wife accidently gets exposed to a radioactive cloud, setting off a chain-reaction in his cells that caused his body to shrink. Hmmmm.
