Can Penguins Repeat Perfect Storm?

pp0624 I always welcome the NHL All-Star break. It gives me a chance catch my breath. To pause and reflect on the first part of the season and to look ahead for things to come. Last year at this time the Penguins were only beginning to coalesce. Carl Hagelin had just arrived. The kids, too. Justin Schultz was soon to follow. The HBK Line was still a [...]

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.

If you get challenged and renege, everyone wants to take a shot at you.” He didn’t know it at the time. But “Barc the Spark” could’ve been addressing our present-day Pens. The one [...]
