Penguins Golden in 4-3 Win

pp0453 In the hit movie Forrest Gump, Tom Hanks’ character famously uttered the phrase, “Life is like a box chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna’ get.” Lately, that saying’s reminded me a lot of our Penguins. You truly never know what you’re going to get. Take their scintillating 4-3 “gold out” victory over Columbus in Game 1 of the Eastern [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Columbus Blue Jackets 2014 Playoff Predictions

pp0450 The Pittsburgh Penguins start the first round of the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs against a Columbus Blue Jackets team who have played in the NHL for 14 years and have yet to win a playoff game.  Should be a slam dunk right? We’ve put together an incredible group of writers to predict how the series will pan out and at the same time throw [...]

Penguins Dodge a Bullet

pp0445 At least one good thing resulted from the Penguins’ sloppy 4-3 overtime loss to archrival Philadelphia in the latest installment of the Commonwealth Cold War. The Flyers eliminated themselves as an opening-round opponent for the black and gold. Heck, if I were Flyers coach Craig Berube I would’ve kept goalie Ray Emery on the bench to start ov [...]

Up-and-Down Penguins Hard to Predict

pp0444 As the star-crossed 2013-14 season mercifully draws to a close, there’s one question on the mind of every black-and-gold fan. Are the Penguins legitimate Stanley Cup contenders? It sure is hard to tell. Talk about a roller coaster. On March 30 the Pens hammered Chicago with a lethal combination of ferocity and skill. Two nights later they rol [...]

Penguins Update: Stempniak Provides a Spark

pp0442 Lately the Pittsburgh Penguins haven’t had a whole lot to write home about. The black and gold is mired in an ugly 2-4-1 funk. They’re a mediocre 6-6-2 since the Olympic break. With superstar Evgeni Malkin (hairline foot fracture) joining the ranks of the wounded, the injury bug continues to take a wicked toll. While good news is decidedly to [...]

Penguins Try Everyman Approach: Add Goc and Stempniak

pp0440 What a difference a year makes. Eleven months ago Penguins fans were dancing in the streets following GM Ray Shero’s blockbuster deadline deals for Jarome Iginla, Jussi Jokinen, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. And this season? Not so much. Shero tried to add some glitter. He vigorously pursued Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler, only to be rebuffed. [...]

Penguins Update: A Tale of Two Cities

pp0439 Celebrated author Charles Dickens opened his classic novel, A Tale of Two Cities, with the famous phrase, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” It sounds like he was describing the present state of Penguins hockey. On one hand, the Pens remain perched atop the leaderboard of a weak Eastern Conference. However, in the wake of [...]

Penguins Answer the Bell

pp0435 It’s hard to say whether the Penguins have what it takes to win the Stanley Cup. Conventional wisdom says GM Ray Shero has some holes to fill—especially on the third line. While the team’s championship pedigree may be in question, its heart and soul are not. The Penguins displayed plenty of both against a surprisingly spirited Buffalo squad a [...]

Penguins Update: Hot ‘n’ Not

pp0418 Here’s a quick glance at who’s hot (and who’s not) for the Penguins over their last ten games leading up to Saturday’s contest with Calgary. The Pens were 7-2-1 during that span. (more…)

Penguins Show Lots of Heart

pp0412 I’ve written on numerous occasions that the Penguins need to be bigger and tougher in order to compete for the Stanley Cup. While I still feel the black and gold would benefit from some extra beef up front, the team’s collective heart is plenty big enough. Last night’s 4-1 victory over Detroit was one of the most courageous efforts I’ve witne [...]
