My Favorite Penguins Team

Over the course of their storied 50-year-history, the Penguins have iced all sorts of hockey teams. From the sublime to the hapless…and worse. They’ve literally come in all shapes and sizes. Different colors, too. Until January 1980, the team sported Columbia blue, navy blue and white. Thus, I decided to break with the present and write [...]

Penguins Update: When the Goin’ Gets Tough…

…the tough get goin.’ At least according to the old adage. It’s crunch time for our Penguins…in more ways than one. Over the next eight days, the black and gold play a murderous stretch of five games. All on the road. Starting Wednesday night with the Winnipeg Jets. Yes, those Winnipeg Jets.

The one where he sings, “Know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em.” I was convinced JR had held ’ [...]

Are the Penguins a Tired Hockey Team?

I don’t have much to go on other than the eye test. Which we all know, hardly qualifies as an exact science. And I truly hate to be the harbinger of bad news. Especially when it concerns our Penguins. But it seems to me we’re a tired hockey team. Thinking back to last season’s incendiary second half, I remember two games in particular where [...]
