Penguins Primed for a Freefall

pp0564 The disintegration of our Pittsburgh Penguins has begun. By my unofficial time table, a season or two early. It isn’t as much a prediction as a statement of fact. With a 1-5-1 record over the past seven games—including a pair of dismal losses to the Bruins—the Pens are hurtling toward the infernal regions of the NHL standings at breakneck spe [...]

The Incredible Shrinking Penguins

pp0563 One of the most popular Sci-Fi movies of the 1950s was The Incredible Shrinking Man. A businessman vacationing with his wife accidently gets exposed to a radioactive cloud, setting off a chain-reaction in his cells that caused his body to shrink. Hmmmm. I wonder if the same cloud passed over Consol Energy Center sometime in the recent past. A [...]

Penguins Recall Murray, Porter and Sheary

pp0562 In the wake of injuries to goalie Marc-Andre Fleury and winger Beau Bennett, the Penguins have recalled forwards Kevin Porter and Conor Sheary—along with goalie Matt Murray—from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. After skating through the opening two months of the season relatively unscathed, the Pens have been wracked by ailments of late. Pascal Dupuis [...]

Penguins Deal Scuderi to Blackhawks for Daley

pp0561 I remember smiling the day I learned that former GM Ray Shero had signed ex-Penguin Rob Scuderi to a free-agent deal back in the summer of 2013. Broadly. What wasn’t to like? “Scuds” had served as the defensive anchor on another Cup winner—this time in Los Angeles—while mentoring talented young Drew Doughty. I figured Shero had found the per [...]

Penguins Plus/Minus

pp0560 As our Penguins prepare to enter a brand-new era under Mike Sullivan, I thought I’d take a moment to reflect on some pluses and minuses through the first third of the 2015-16 season. It’s not meant to be an all-inclusive list. Obviously, players such as Evgeni Malkin and Marc-Andre Fleury deserve praise, as do the unsung defensive tandem of [...]

Penguins Dismiss Mike Johnston

pp0547 The Penguins have dismissed head coach Mike Johnston. The move was announced today by general manager Jim Rutherford at a press conference at Consol Energy Center. Assistant coach Gary Agnew was relieved of his duties as well. “I felt with where we are right now (fifth place in the Metropolitan Division), and how we’ve played over the first p [...]

Penguins Update: Au Revoir Pascal

pp0559 He was a throw-in. A warm body to plug one of the gaps created when then-GM Ray Shero sent fan favorite Colby Armstrong and Erik Christensen to Atlanta as part of a blockbuster five-player deal for sniper Marian Hossa at the 2008 trade deadline. Indeed, when Pascal Dupuis first arrived in Pittsburgh, he was regarded as little more than a 28-y [...]

Penguins Are WYSIWYG

pp0558 Like many Penguins fans, I’ve spent a good part of the season trying to get a read on our team. Hardly an easy task, given last summer’s significant turnover and the black-and-gold’s streaky nature. After waiting 25 games for the Pens to coalesce, I’ve concluded that the answer’s been right under our noses the whole time. We’re WYSIWYG. What [...]

Penguins Update: Perron a Plus

pp0557 It sure was great to see the Penguins’ offense bust loose in San Jose on Tuesday night. Indeed, the five-goal outburst represented the high-water mark for a team that has struggled to light the lamp all season long. Pacing the attack was the line of Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel, and David Perron. The trio combined for a whopping four goals and [...]

Penguins Update: Malkin Leads the Way

pp0556 Thus far, the 2015-16 season hasn’t been especially kind to the Penguins. Or their stars. Sidney Crosby? With points in each of his past five games—including a two-goal night against St. Louis—Sid’s on a bit of a roll. Yet our captain’s producing at a rate well below his customary clip. Kris Letang? Sans the steadying presence of Paul Martin, [...]
