Penguins End Season on a Sour Note

00ppfront It was bound to happen. Sooner or later, the Penguins were going to lose a game. As inevitable as death and taxes. Might even do them some good, heading into the Stanley Cup playoffs. Remind them of how much it stinks to wind up on the short end of the stick. Lord knows, they haven’t had much experience with it lately. Still, I hate losing to [...]

Kuhnhackl Thriving With Penguins

pp0601 As a youngster growing up in Landshut, Germany, Tom Kuhnhackl had some awfully big skates to fill. His dad, Erich Kuhnhackl, was a larger-than-life figure (6’5” 213) who cut a wide swath across his country’s hockey landscape.

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 [...]
