The move was more symbolic than anything. The modestly skilled marauder wasn’t going to be an effective player for the Pens. Not with pacifi [...]

Penguins Update: Power-Play Woes Continue

pp0537 It’s bound to happen. Sooner and later, a puck will glance off of Patric Hornqvist and skitter across the goal line. Or Kris Letang will laser one in from the top of the circle. Or Evgeni Malkin will curl off the half-wall and rip one home. Yes, eventually the black and gold will score a power-play goal. In the meantime, our beloved “Boys of [...]
