Penguins Falter, Drop Game 5 in OT

pp0622 Displaying remarkable resilience, the Tampa Bay Lightning overcame a two-goal deficit and a pair of late-period tallies to defeat the Penguins, 4-3, in overtime last night at Consol Energy Center. In the process, the Lightning ended the Pens’ 46-0 streak when leading after two periods and took a 3-games-to-2 lead in their Eastern Conference F [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: Time to Switch Part II

pp0621 Back in the day, before the evils of smoking were fully understood, a popular cigarette brand used to boast, “Tareyton smokers would rather fight than switch!” Mind you, I’m not trying to start a battle among Penguins faithful.

Penguins Short-Circuit Lightning in Game 3

pp0617 Flash back with me, if you will, to last Friday night. At the risk of wearing out a familiar theme, I approached my good friend, Tom Blanciak, who was gazing up at one of the Pennsbury Pub and Grille’s big-screen TVs. Shortly after the Penguins dropped Game 1 of their Eastern Conference Finals matchup to Tampa Bay in thoroughly dismal f [...]

Murray or Fleury: Should the Penguins Switch Goalies?

pp0616 A buddy and I were rehashing the Penguins’ scintillating Game 2 triumph over Tampa Bay when the subject turned to goalie Matt Murray. My friend commented that Murray seemed “off.” I agreed. Not that the kid didn’t tough it out and make some huge saves. He’s got a wonderful mental makeup—a resilience between the pipes that his teammates rever [...]
