Penguins Update: Looking Ahead

pp0575 “I believe that we will make the playoffs.” With a singular forceful statement, All-Star center Evgeni Malkin reflected the growing sense of optimism over the fortunes of our Pittsburgh Penguins. Almost overnight, it seems, they’ve transformed from a crew of rag-tag underachievers struggling to keep pace in the Eastern Conference playoff chas [...]

Penguins Get Hagelin from Ducks for Perron, Clendening

00ppfront The Pittsburgh Penguins have a new left wing. Burning the midnight oil in the wake of last night’s 5-4 overtime loss to Tampa Bay, general manager Jim Rutherford swapped underachieving forward David Perron and spare defenseman Adam Clendening to Anaheim for left wing Carl Hagelin. Impetus for the deal? Struggling offenses and disappointing ov [...]

Penguins Okay with Second Best

pp0397 After reading Phil Krundle’s passionate, well-thought, and superbly crafted feature on the state of the Penguins (and coach Dan Bylsma), I almost didn’t post this piece. It’s not nearly as comprehensive as Phil’s, but it represents a different point of view. In that spirit I decided to post it: I never thought I’d see the day when the Penguin [...]

Super Geno Powers Penguins Past Lightning 8-1

00ppfront Look … up in the sky. It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s “Super Geno!” Okay, maybe likening Penguins center Evgeni Malkin to Superman is a bit over the top. After all, he doesn’t wear a cape and he can’t exactly fly, although you might have a hard time convincing NHL goalies. However, there are a growing number of teams that wish they could [...]

Video: Evgeni Malkin Goal of the Year vs Tampa Bay Lightning

Video: Evgeni Malkin Goal of the Year vs Tampa Bay Lightning Evgeni Malkin opened up a can of Malkamania on the Tampa Bay Lightning after getting punched by the Tampa Bay Lightning goalie.  

Penguins, Letang Lance Lightning 4-2

00ppfront Who said Penguins can’t fly? Certainly not the Tampa Bay Lightning. Entering Sunday night’s contest at CONSOL Energy Center on a red-hot 7-1-2 roll, the Bolts watched an early 2-0 lead evaporate in the face of yet another withering offensive assault by the black and gold. On the heels of an incendiary eight-goal outburst against Winnipeg, the [...]

Penguins to Bolts: Let’s Make a Deal

00ppfront With the NHL trade deadline looming just around the corner, I was scanning the Penguins’ roster this morning and thinking of ways to improve the team. All of a sudden a potential deal popped into my head—ironically involving the Tampa Bay Lightning—who just happen to be in town. I thought I’d share it with our loyal PenguinPoop readers. I pro [...]

Malkin, Penguins Short Circuit Lightning 6-3

00ppfront The Tampa Bay Lightning entered Sunday afternoon’s contest with Pittsburgh lugging an unsightly six-game losing streak. If Guy Boucher’s crew was expecting any sympathy from the Penguins—who only recently snapped a six-game slide of their own—they were sadly mistaken. Paced by Evgeni Malkin’s natural hat trick and a pair of power-play tallies [...]

On to the Conference Finals

00ppfront Time to review my round 2 picks and look at my predictions for the Conference Finals.  I went 75% again.  Kudos again to the West for playing along!  And, in the East, well…apparently no one told Tampa that they weren’t supposed to still be in the game.  😉 Again, not a whole lot for me to say about how things went in the West.  I [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins Power Play Needs a Big Change

00ppfront Drastic times call for drastic measures!  The Pens power play is mired in drastic times.  Coach Dan needs to take drastic measures to make the power play even remotely effective.  I am not sure what the answer is, but I would start with taking Kris Letang off of the number one unit.  He is trying too hard, gripping the stick too hard or whate [...]
