There are many questions the Penguins need to answer going into round two against the Ottawa Senators. The biggest question is who’s going to be the goaltender that stands up in between the pipes. Will it be the playoff experienced Marc-Andre Fleury or the hot guy right now Tomas Vokoun?
We’ve put together an incredible group [...]
There’s an old adage in sports—ride the horse that brung ya.’ (Or something like that.) Thank goodness Penguins coach Dan Bylsma paid it no mind as filled out his lineup card for Thursday’s critical Game 5 matchup with the pesky New York Islanders.
I’ve been critical of the Pens’ skipper in the past for what I felt were questionable personnel [...]
Here is Sidney Crosby & Mario Lemieux’s goal side by side. Crosby’s amazing goal was almost identical to the goal that Mario Lemieux scored against the Islanders then had bronzed outside the Consol Energy Center. Also, videos of the goal from on 3 other broadcasts including the Islanders broadcast where they say Crosby did [...]
Penguins leading scorer in this young playoff season, Evgeni Malkin, has gotten a reputation in the NHL. It’s not a good one. It is the same reputation that Sidney Crosby had a few years ago and he’s having a little trouble shaking it.
Every team knows right now that they can throw Malkin off his game by getting in his face. Cr [...]
While Penguins goaltender Marc-André Fleury has rightfully bore the brunt of the load for last nights loss. The puck doesn’t stop there. Literally and figuratively.
Penguins coach Dan Bylsma sat before reporters last night and was asked “.. is there any thought to putting Vokoun in for game five?” After he him-hawed aroun [...]
OK, I was wrong. Before the playoffs started, I predicted the Penguins would win their first round series against the Islanders four games to one. After last night’s pathetic excuse of a hockey game, the series is now tied 2-2 and returns back to Pittsburgh for Game 5 Thursday night at the Consol Energy Center.
But was I really wrong? [...]
Sidney Crosby worked out with the Penguins conditioning coach and left the ice before the Penguins started their practice this morning. Odds are Crosby will not be playing tonight. Coach Bylsma usually has the players attend the regular practice if they are playing, though he could make an exception for Crosby.
While it is up in the air whet [...]
Sidney Crosby has been skating in full gear and working out at home. You can read “They have yet to set a timetable on when Sidney Crosby will return” all over the internet. It is this simple, Crosby doesn’t have a concussion, he sets his own timetable. Penguins Evgeni Malkin appeared out of the blue yesterday afternoon a [...]
After attending another routine Penguins’ victory at the Consol Energy Center last night, you would think I would have been riding high knowing the Penguins are just one victory over the Bruins Friday night from clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference and getting guaranteed home ice advantage for at least the first three rounds [...]
Penguins Sidney Crosby, James Neal and Paul Martin skated and shot pucks around before the Pittsburgh Penguins practice today. Crosby wore a full face shield. This is a great sign that Crosby may be ready to come back soon. It is also good sign that James Neal may not have a severe concussion. Paul Martin had surgery to repair a broken bo [...]
