Penguins Update: Fehr Deal

pp0542 It sure was nice to watch forward Eric Fehr make his black-and-gold debut Saturday night. The Winkler, Alberta native didn’t disappoint, notching a goal and an assist to propel the Penguins to a 4-0 victory over Toronto. A key free-agent pick up, Fehr missed the first 10 games of the campaign due to off-season elbow surgery. Initially expect [...]

Penguins Update: Love for the Reverend

pp0545 It ranks among the most unpopular—and controversial—deals in recent Penguins history. To such an extent that GM Jim Rutherford felt compelled to absolve himself of sole responsibility, stating that a push for the trade came from above. An organizational decision. Heck, JR stopped just short of calling the swap a mistake. Yes, I’m refer [...]

Penguins Stun Capitals 3-1

pp0541 A springboard game. That’s what NBCSN analyst Pierre McGuire called Wednesday’s impressive 3-1 Penguins victory over a very good Capitals team on the road. Pierre may be right. A hockey team in search of an identity may have, indeed, found one. It wasn’t so much that the Penguins won as how they won. After failing to convert on an extended 5 [...]

Penguins Update: The Farnham (and Bailey) Circus

pp0540 Yesterday was a sad day for Penguins fans who like a little mustard on their hot dog. Bobby Farnham, the crowd-pleasing buzz-saw with the enormous heart, was claimed on waivers by the New Jersey Devils. The move was more symbolic than anything. The modestly skilled marauder wasn’t going to be an effective player for the Pens. Not with pacifi [...]

Penguins Update: Decline of a Champion

pp0539 To everything there is a season. While it may seem odd to open a blog post with a Bible verse (Ecclesiastes 3:1), it is appropriate. Everything in our world runs in cycles. The four seasons, for example. Winter, spring, summer, and fall. A time to plant and a time to harvest. The same holds true for hockey teams. They run in cycles, too. Ther [...]

Ex-Penguins Update: October 18, 2015

pp0538 Here’s a look at how former Penguins have performed thus far in 2015-16. Stats reflect games played through Saturday, October 17. (more…)

Penguins Update: Power-Play Woes Continue

pp0537 It’s bound to happen. Sooner and later, a puck will glance off of Patric Hornqvist and skitter across the goal line. Or Kris Letang will laser one in from the top of the circle. Or Evgeni Malkin will curl off the half-wall and rip one home. Yes, eventually the black and gold will score a power-play goal. In the meantime, our beloved “Boys of [...]

Penguins Show Moxie

492856814_slide With the wolves of change nipping at their heels, the Pittsburgh Penguins circled the wagons at the Consol Energy Center on Thursday night and slammed the door on an ugly 0-3 start with an impressive 2-0 victory over Ottawa. The turnaround was as stunning as it was unexpected. And most welcome. Everyone contributed. The black and gold got st [...]

Penguins Update: Split Up Crosby and Kessel?

pp0536 After watching the Penguins’ big guns struggle to produce through the early going, I’d like to pose a question. Is it time to split up Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel? I know. To even suggest such a move smacks of panic. Not to mention cruel and unusual punishment. After all, Sid’s waited his whole career—or at least since Marian Hossa l [...]

Penguins Update: First Impressions

pp0535 I know it’s early. Really early. And there’s a ton of hockey to be played this season. However, if first impressions mean anything, I don’t like what I saw from our Penguins on opening night. Sure, we had our moments during the 3-0 loss to Dallas. Evgeni Malkin made a supernatural power move out of the corner, only to be denied by Stars goal [...]
