Reaves Applies Muscle as Penguins Rebound

Few moves in recent Penguins history earned more criticism, or drew a more divided reaction among the fan base, than GM Jim Rutherford’s acquisition of Ryan Reaves over the summer. While it remains to be seen whether the heavyweight forward can measure up, he went a long way toward proving his worth last night. Determined to make a statement, [...]

Cole Penguins’ Unsung Hero

He doesn’t have the highest profile among Penguins’ defensemen. Nor the greatest potential. Perhaps the highest pain threshold. Indeed, while his defensive mates have fallen to the right and left, Ian Cole’s stood in the breach each and every game since the start of the regular season. Seventy-seven and counting.

Penguins Halt Sharks 3-1 in Game 4

Something old, something new. Something borrowed, something blue. You might be wondering what the heck an olde English bridal rhyme has to do with hockey. Guess it kind of reminds me of our Penguins. A true mulligan stew of superstars, grinders, castoffs and kids. Beautifully seasoned and stirred by head chefs Jim Rutherford and Mike Sullivan [...]
