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 [...]

Penguins Update: Nothing the Maatta with Olli

pp0408 When Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero selected defenseman Olli Maatta with the 22nd overall pick at the 2012 Entry Draft, it’s safe to say he was expecting good things from the London Knights star. He just wasn’t expecting them so soon. Following a solid 2012-13 season in junior, the 19-year-old native of Jyvaskyla, Finland wasted little time [...]

Penguins Update: Air Malkin Takes Flight

pp0407 Contact Pittsburgh International Airport and have them clear the runways. Better warn NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby to step aside, too. There’s a new jumbo jet cruising down the tarmac and it’s about to take flight. It’s called “Air Malkin.” Although my intro may be a bit clunky, I can assure you there’s nothing hokey about Evgeni Malkin’s [...]

Video: Ovechkin Nut Taps Crosby

13624-autosave-v1 This is one of the cheapest plays in the NHL.   NBC showed a video montage of all the cheap shots the Capitals took on Crosby Wednesday night, this Ovechkin nut tap was not included.    Call him Crysby, a diver or whatever, if you get the chance watch the abuse Crosby takes in just a single game, every game.  Watch Ovechkin’s stick, the [...]

Penguins Update: First Quarter Report

pp0405 As the Penguins round the quarter pole of the 2013-14 season, I thought it might be an appropriate time to review the Top Five Pluses (and Minuses) so far. (more…)

Penguins an Easy Opponent?

pp0404 There was a time in the not-too-distant past when Pittsburgh Penguins opponents hated visiting the Steel City. Not only would they have to face a lethal lineup featuring hungry young stars such as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but they knew they’d absorb more than a few bumps and bruises, too. Now it seems, opponents are having far too eas [...]

Penguins Update: Facing Flyers May Not Be Fun

00ppfront When the Penguins and Flyers resume the Commonwealth Cold War in Philadelphia on Thursday night, it’ll be the definitive case of two foes headed in opposite directions. While the Pens have zoomed to the top of the Metropolitan Division, the Flyers are off to a ghastly 1-6 start. Indeed, the Pens are firing on all cylinders while Philadelphia [...]

Penguins Okay with Second Best

pp0397 After reading Phil Krundle’s passionate, well-thought, and superbly crafted feature on the state of the Penguins (and coach Dan Bylsma), I almost didn’t post this piece. It’s not nearly as comprehensive as Phil’s, but it represents a different point of view. In that spirit I decided to post it: I never thought I’d see the day when the Penguin [...]

Penguins GM Shero put Coach Bylsma in a Very Tough Situation

pp0392 In March when Penguins coach Dan  Bylsma had the Penguins rocking out a 12 game winning streak, you would have thought Christmas came early. Penguins GM Ray Shero started to bring in 4 new seasoned veterans to add to the Penguins already rich lineup.  The Penguins brought in leadership, grit, skill & experience.  Everything a coach could [...]
