Penguins-Capitals: A Playoff Primer

download (1) Thirty-four to twenty-one. Sounds like the score of a typical Steelers game, doesn’t it? Except in this case, the numbers represent the Penguins’ postseason won-loss record against the Washington Capitals, their opponent for the upcoming second-round series. Indeed, our Pens have dominated the Caps in Stanley Cup action like no other foe, to [...]

Penguins Update: Be Careful What You Wish For

669601358_slide I was standing in front of a big screen TV last night at Wright’s Gym, celebrating Toronto’s shocking Game 3 overtime victory over Washington when an unnerving thought popped into my head.

Why, following last Saturday night’s ugly 6-3 loss to Detroit the Penguins were sagging against the ropes and slipping in the standings. Losers of three in a row on the road—all by lopsided scores—there seemed to be definite cause for a [...]

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 [...]
