Penguins Update: Youth is Served…or Vice Versa

Why, it’s getting to be a regular routine. Each year around this time, the Penguins dip into their farm system and pluck out a youthful nugget or two to spice up the mix. In 2016, they mined a veritable bonanza of kid forwards, not to mention goalie Matt Murray. Last season? Mid-season call-up Jake Guentzel lit up scoreboards around the leagu [...]

Penguins Update: Dear Prudence

The actual title of my article was going to be, Sometimes the Best Trades Are the Ones You Don’t Make. Since it’s a bit long and unwieldy, I figured I’d borrow my title from an old Beatles tune and call it Dear Prudence. I liked my new title so much I decided to look up prudence in the dictionary. Merriman-Webster defines it as 1) the ability [...]

Penguins History: Remembering Jags

When I learned Jaromir Jagr had passed through waivers last week and returned to his native Czech Republic—effectively ending his NHL career—I started to tap out some memories as a comment to an earlier post.

The Caps called down the thunder; Malkin and the Penguins gave it to them

Wow! Just plain Wow! After watching that display of raw firepower, the Penguins win 7 – 4 over the Capitals, Wow! I was just sitting here thinking about this game; I was thinking about how Tom Wilson leaped up off his skates to hit Ian Cole with a high hit. I was thinking about T.j. Oshie crosschecking Kris Letang in the neck. I was thi [...]

The Penguins Murray takes the bite out of the Sharks

He’s back. Matt Murray in his return to the ice, robbed the San Jose Sharks, 5 – 2, lifting the Pittsburgh Penguins into sole possession of 2nd place in the Metropolitan Division; at least temporarily. It is hard to imagine a goalie stealing a game in a 5 – 2 win but that is exactly what happened last night. Even though Bryan Rust opened up t [...]
