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. The second-period highlights (or lowlights, depending on your perspective) confirmed my [...]

Penguins Update: Nothin’ the Maatta with Olli

Last season, right around this time, I posted an article titled, “What’s the Maatta with Olli?” on PenguinPoop. I delved into why, at least to my admittedly imperfect eye, Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta seemed to have regressed since his promising rookie season of 2013-14, when the then 19-year-old rearguard sent our expectations soaring wit [...]

Penguins Update: Too Early to Worry?

As the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end. It’s time for us to put our hard-earned Cup on the line. There’ll be challenge [...]

Somebody Has to Stop the Puck!

Of the top 100 drafted players in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, only nine were goaltenders. Taken at number 83, late in the 3rd round, was the Penguins’ own Matt Murray. To date he has only played 62 NHL games. His career average numbers? A .925 save percentage and a very respectable 2.32 goals against average. Matt has two Stanley Cups to his n [...]
