Penguins Oleksy a Hit

pp0644 With his steel grey eyes and angular jaw, Steve Oleksy bears more than a passing resemblance to former Penguins hit man Ulf Samuelsson. Plays a lot like him, too. Indeed, since replacing injured defenseman Trevor Daley on December 17, Oleksy’s added some much-needed spice to the Pens’ backline. Through his first five regular-season games wear [...]

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.

pp0607 It was a delicious win. One that featured a little bit of everything for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Timely scoring, clutch goaltending, superb penalty killing, a relentless forecheck…even physical play. Indeed, last night’s 3-1 victory over the New York Rangers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals reflected a return to the form th [...]

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 [...]
