Dragnet 2017: The Case of the Missing Penguins

Since last night’s 4-0 loss to the Flyers wasn’t much to write home about, I thought I’d do an abbreviated game summary in the style of the old TV series, Dragnet 1967. Cue the opening music. Sergeant Joe Friday and Officer Bill Gannon, on loan from the LAPD, knock on the front door to the home of Polly Penzfan. Clad in a Penguins toque, Sidn [...]

Penguins Update: So Why Do We Hate the Flyers So Much?

As our Penguins prepare to square off with the Philadelphia Flyers tonight in the latest installment of “The Battle of Pennsylvania,” it occurred to me that many younger fans may not understand or fully appreciate the deeply rooted hatred between the two clubs.

Czechs, Finns, Germans (Tom Kuhnhackl), Italians (Nelson Debenedet), Latvians (Peter Skudra), Lithuanians (Darius Kasparaitis), Poles (Nick Harbaruk), Russians, South Koreans (Jim Paek), Slovaks, Swedes and Ukrainians [...]

Penguins Falter, Lose to Chicago

I hope last night’s 4-1 loss to Chicago at the United Center wasn’t somehow symbolic. Like in the Miss America pageant, when last year’s honoree hands her crown to the latest winner. Unfortunately, that’s what it felt like. A changing of the guard…or passing of the Cup, if you will. The King is dead, Long live the King. Talk about two teams [...]
