Penguins Playoff Update: The Comeback Kids?

pp0623 The time for a more traditional post had long since passed when I got to wondering. How many times have the Penguins rallied from a 3-games-to-2 deficit to win a playoff series? I decided to do some digging. The Pens have overcome 3-2 series deficits (or worse) to emerge victorious six times in their storied postseason history. Coincidence o [...]

Penguins Falter, Drop Game 5 in OT

pp0622 Displaying remarkable resilience, the Tampa Bay Lightning overcame a two-goal deficit and a pair of late-period tallies to defeat the Penguins, 4-3, in overtime last night at Consol Energy Center. In the process, the Lightning ended the Pens’ 46-0 streak when leading after two periods and took a 3-games-to-2 lead in their Eastern Conference F [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: Time to Switch Part II

Playing with their backs to the wall, the Tampa Bay Lightning employed an aggressive forecheck to snatch the momentum and pile up a 30-22 edge in shots on goal through 40 minutes [...]

Penguins Kessel Shines on Big Stage

pp0619 Phil Kessel isn’t your stereotypical hockey player. Indeed, in a sport dominated by athletes with lean, chiseled physiques, the round-faced Penguins’ winger sort of resembles your Uncle Walt. Even after he trained last summer with ex-Pens hard rock Gary Roberts. Nor does he possess a common skill set. Keen anticipation. Excellent vision. Grea [...]

Murray or Fleury: Should the Penguins Switch Goalies?

pp0616 A buddy and I were rehashing the Penguins’ scintillating Game 2 triumph over Tampa Bay when the subject turned to goalie Matt Murray. My friend commented that Murray seemed “off.” I agreed. Not that the kid didn’t tough it out and make some huge saves. He’s got a wonderful mental makeup—a resilience between the pipes that his teammates rever [...]
