Penguins Update: Ouch!

It was another Thursday evening. March 22, 1984, to be exact. Before Mario Lemieux, way before our first Stanley Cup. During the darkest era in Penguins history, the “Boys of Winter”—as eminently forgettable a bunch as ever stumbled around an NHL rink—waddled into their personal den of horrors, the Philadelphia Spectrum, and were annihilated [...]

Despite scoring 61 goals during his final season of junior hockey, he was passed over by the 21 NHL teams—including the Pens—not once, but three times. Too small, the scouts whispered. [...]

“Oh no.” Not very expressive, I’ll grant you. But those were my exact words when the NBCSN cameras showed an up-close-and-personal shot of Penguins forward Conor Sheary grimacing on the bench. Shortly after he blocked a shot during the first period of last night’s dismal 6-2 loss to the Flyers. Followed moments later by the inevitable, soul- [...]
