Penguins Quarter-Pole Review

Twenty games being a nice, round number—not to mention roughly a quarter of the season—I thought I’d review the Penguins’ performance thus far. It’s been a mixed bag, to say the least. Following two grueling postseasons (and corresponding short summers), it’s safe to say the Pens are suffering the effects of a Stanley Cup hangover. They’ve pl [...]

Penguins Update: The Back-to-Back Games Conspiracy

During a recent lull at work, I decided to look up the Penguins’ schedule on line. As I gazed at the computer screen, I was struck by the yawning gaps in our upcoming slate.

Penguins Zapped by Bolts: Acquire Sheahan

I confess…I arrived at The Pennsbury Pub and Grille a little late last night, so I didn’t view the first 35 minutes or so of the Penguins-Lightning game. After bellying up to the bar and glancing at one of the big screen TVs, maybe it was all for the best.
