Penguins Stun Rangers 4-3

00ppfront Take that, New York. In a gutsy effort that harkened back to their glory days, the Penguins overcame adversity—not to mention atrocious officiating—to beat the New York Rangers Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. With the pulse-pounding 4-3 victory, the Pens snapped a four-game postseason losing streak and evened the series at one game a [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins vs NY Rangers 2015 Playoff Predictions

pp0524 Here we go again, It’s the Pittsburgh Penguins facing off against the New York Rangers for the eight playoff game in a row for the Penguins.  Since the Rangers won the Presidents’ Trophy and they beat the Penguins last year, the NHL should just hand the series to the Rangers…  Right? We’ve put together an incredible g [...]

Penguins Easy Pickins

00ppfront “We want to be a team that’s tough to play against.” Remember when former GM Ray Shero uttered those words? Shortly after he took over the reins from Craig Patrick in the summer of 2006? It seems like a lifetime ago. Shero backed up his words by building a team that could physically compete. Guys like Matt Cooke, Ryan Malone, Brooks Orpik, Ga [...]

Penguins Show Heart

pp0522 I don’t know about you. But when Logan Couture misfired on his shootout attempt to clinch a win for the Penguins on Sunday, I stood and cheered. After all, victories have been hard to come by. So have heart-and-soul efforts. That’s precisely what we got against San Jose. Forced to skate with only five defensemen due to cap constraints and in [...]

Are the Penguins Primed for a Collapse?

pp0520 It was a pretty goal. Especially by recent black-and-gold standards. Beau Bennett cruised into the slot, gathered up a loose puck, and slipped it through the goalie’s five-hole. Problem is, it was Marc-Andre Fleury’s five-hole. Bennett’s wrong-way play seems to epitomize the plight of the Penguins, who’ve lost four straight. A team built to [...]

Penguins Update: How Important is Building Through the Draft?

pp0516 A while back I read an article that downplayed the importance of building through the Entry Draft. I beg to differ. Developing young talent is the life blood of any hockey team. Fail to do so, and eventually your team will collapse like a house of cards. Ever since the Penguins won the Cup in 2009, they’ve used draft picks as fodder to trade [...]

Penguins Update: Rutherford Pulls Two Shockers

pp0514 Just when you thought it was safe to toss your old Ben Lovejoy jersey, GM Jim Rutherford pulled off two buzzer-beaters at the trade deadline. Seeking to improve the Penguins’ defense for the postseason, JR swapped rugged Robert Bortuzzo and a 7th-round pick in the upcoming draft to St. Louis for sturdy Ian Cole. He followed up by dealing tal [...]

Penguins Update: The Unsung Heroes

pp0512 It’s been a topsy-turvy season in Penguin-land. For starters, there’s a new coach and GM. Not to mention tons of personnel changes and the usual spate of injuries and illnesses to contend with. Even team captain and reigning Art Ross and Hart Trophy winner Sidney Crosby hasn’t been immune, enduring an uncharacteristically epic scoring drought [...]

Solution to Penguins Power-Play Woes: Shoooooot!

00ppfront I never played hockey. Can’t skate a lick. But even I know you have to shoot the puck to score. I wonder if the Penguins do? For all their wondrous talent, the Pens’ power play has morphed into a black hole where scoring chances go to die. There’s a reason our boys are 0-for-18 and counting with the man advantage. They don’t shoot the puck. N [...]

Penguins Update: Rutherford Proving His Worth

pp0511 Two seasons ago Ray Shero won the NHL’s General Manager of the Year Award. Back then the Penguins’ mantra was “In Ray We Trust.” A confidence well-earned…until chronic playoff failures, salary-cap issues, and an uninspired season at the helm cost him his job. Could Shero’s successor win the award this year? Given the fact that the Pens may f [...]
