Penguins Oust Senators 3-2 in Double OT Thriller

688493374_slide Elation. Relief. The purest of joy. Those were my emotions as I raced through the Pennsbury Pub and Grille last night like a little kid who’d just gotten that special toy he wanted for Christmas, fist pumping the air and high-fiving friends in frenzied celebration. “God bless Chris Kunitz,” I yelled. “Sign him to another three-year deal!” Oka [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: Rowney on the Rise

686418314_slide He leads the Penguins with 50 postseason hits. To put that in perspective, it’s one more than Washington bad boy Tom Wilson dished out over the same number of games (13). For good measure, the sandy-haired winger with the ready smile registered three assists during Game Five last Sunday to earn the No. 1 star, an honor usually reserved for bl [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: Shades of ‘92

Image12 I remember the incident like it was yesterday. It was Tuesday, May 5, 1992. Game Two of the Patrick Division Finals. Fresh off a rousing come-from-behind conquest of Washington in the opening round of the playoffs, the Penguins had toppled the Rangers—Presidents’ Trophy winners—in Game One at Madison Square Garden. They were up 1-0 in Game Tw [...]

Penguins Update: NHL Needs to Fix Playoff Format

Image8 No offense to the good citizens of Ottawa, or their hockey team. But every time I ponder the second-round playoff matchups in the Eastern Conference, I see red. Senators red. In one bracket, you have the Penguins and the Capitals duking it out. Arguably the two best teams in the league, they were the two top point-getters in the National Hock [...]
