Penguins Beef Up

pp0530 Back in 1984 Wendy’s fast-food restaurant struck advertising gold with the catchphrase, “Where’s the beef?” The clever lament could apply to our recent Penguins squads, too. According to James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail, the Pens (with an average weight of 199.6 pounds) were the 25th heaviest team in the NHL to start the 2014-15 season. Th [...]

Penguins Get Kessel

pp0529 What’s the old saying? Desperate times call for desperate measures? In the wake of last season’s disappointing finish—not to mention the recent announcement that owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle are looking to sell—the Penguins went all out to regain their luster. In the biggest trade of the summer Pens GM Jim Rutherford sent [...]

Penguins Give Their All

pp0528 Determined to even their series with the nettlesome New York Rangers, the Penguins played 60 minutes of passionate, playoff-style hockey last night at the CONSOL Energy Center. Actually, 63:14 to be exact. Unfortunately, their best wasn’t good enough. Three-plus minutes into overtime Rangers rookie Kevin Hayes poked a loose puck past Marc-An [...]

Slow Start Dooms Penguins

pp0527 In the wake of Saturday’s scintillating victory over the Rangers, I was afraid the Penguins might be too fired up for the start of Game 3. I envisioned one of those first periods where the Pens come out in a ball of fury and outshoot the opposition, say 17-3, but don’t score any goals. Then the other club gets a lucky bounce and it’s all down [...]

Penguins Update: Cole a Keeper

pp0526 Jim Rutherford drew tons of criticism for his moves at the trade deadline. Clearly feeling the heat, the venerable GM felt compelled to defend the deals in an April 14 interview with Jason Mackey of the Tribune Review. While promising Simon Despres may prove to be the fish that got away, JR partly redeemed himself by plucking Ian Cole from t [...]

Penguins Stun Rangers 4-3

pp0525 Take that, New York. After playing the patsy in Game 1 of their opening-round matchup with the Rangers, the Penguins shoved back on Saturday night. Harkening back to their glory days, the Pens overcame adversity—not to mention atrocious officiating—to beat the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The pulse-pounding 4-3 victory snapped the Pens’ [...]

Ex-Penguins Update: Final 2014-15 Stats

pp0523 Here’s a look at how former Penguins performed during the 2014-15 season. Marian Hossa (Chicago) topped the scoring list with 61 points, while Jarome Iginla (Colorado) led the way with 29 goals. Former draft pick Jake Muzzin (Los Angeles) paced the defensemen with 10 goals and 41 points. (more…)

Penguins Update: Press Reset

00ppfront Suppose you’re out bowling with your buds and a pin falls on its own. What do you do? Press the reset button, of course. That’s what the Penguins need to do. Press reset. Bulldoze the previous 79 games of this turbulent and, at times, misbegotten season into the Mon and start over. Or, as the late Bob Johnson so eloquently put it after New Je [...]

Penguins Easy Pickins

00ppfront “We want to be a team that’s tough to play against.” Remember when former GM Ray Shero uttered those words? Shortly after he took over the reins from Craig Patrick in the summer of 2006? It seems like a lifetime ago. Shero backed up his words by building a team that could physically compete. Guys like Matt Cooke, Ryan Malone, Brooks Orpik, Ga [...]

Penguins Show Heart

pp0522 I don’t know about you. But when Logan Couture misfired on his shootout attempt to clinch a win for the Penguins on Sunday, I stood and cheered. After all, victories have been hard to come by. So have heart-and-soul efforts. That’s precisely what we got against San Jose. Forced to skate with only five defensemen due to cap constraints and in [...]
