Do the Penguins Need a Tocchet?

00ppfront It sure was great to see our Penguins trim New Jersey last night before a big holiday crowd at PPG Paints Arena. The black and gold seemed remarkably unfazed by the pasting they received only 24 hours earlier at the hands of red-hot Columbus. Credit Mike Sullivan and the coaching staff for helping the team turn the page so quickly. The player [...]

Blue Jackets Waste Penguins 7-1

630437838_slide On March 8, 1971, heavyweight boxing champion Joe Frazier met former champ Muhammad Ali in the first of an epic three-fight trilogy. Appropriately dubbed the “Fight of the Century,” the bout hung in the balance until Frazier floored Ali with a vicious left hook in the 15th round to earn a unanimous decision.

Penguins Update: Malkin on the Rise

630317724_slide He’s been skating in Sidney Crosby’s considerable shadow for most of the season. Hiding in plain sight, as the old saying goes. Well, don’t look now.

Justin is quite the opposite—a sublimely skill [...]

00ppfront Back in the day, the Italian-American Mafia and Jewish mob carried out their nefarious activities with the aid of well-established enforcement groups. Headed by notorious gangsters such as Louis “Lepke” Buchalter and Albert “The Mad Hatter” Anastasia, “Murder, Inc.” was believed to have iced as many as 1000 unfortunate souls during the 1930s [...]

Penguins Update: What’s the Maatta with Olli?

628980202_slide It’s a question I’ve posed—and had posed to me—by numerous hockey pals. Especially over the past year. What’s the Maatta with Olli (pun intended)? Or more to the point, what’s the matter with Olli Maatta’s skating? A puzzler, to be sure. While the 22-year-old Penguins defenseman still possesses keen instincts and skills, not to mention the c [...]
