Hallelujah Hollywood: Penguins Repeat!

“We could have clubs for the next eight or nine years like this.” Venerable Eddie Johnston, then the Penguins’ senior advisor, uttered those words shortly after the team won the Stanley Cup back in 2009. How prophetic he was. However, for the longest time—through an unending string of playoff disappointments—it seemed the promise of those day [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: Let’s Hope History Doesn’t Repeat Itself

Buried deep within the Penguins’ glorious Game Five victory over the Predators on Thursday night is a most disturbing pattern.

So much for those victory parade plans, at least for the near future. Out [...]

Predators Feast on Floundering Penguins, 5-1

Unlike the king-sized catfish that landed with a splat on the otherwise pristine Bridgestone Arena ice before the opening faceoff, the Penguins let Game Three of the Stanley Cup Final wriggle off the hook.
