Penguins Release Protection List

The Penguins released their Protection List for the upcoming Expansion Draft. Opting to protect eight skaters and a goalie, the black and gold shielded forwards Sidney Crosby, Patric Hornqvist, Phil Kessel and Evgeni Malkin, defensemen Brian Dumoulin, Kris Letang, Olli Maatta and Justin Schultz, and goalie Matt Murray. Players in the first a [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: The Great Goalie Debate

WHOOSH. You could almost hear the lid on the can of worms pop open when Penguins coach Mike Sullivan pulled Marc-Andre Fleury in favor of Matt Murray 13 minutes into our disastrous Game Three loss to Ottawa. Sound as a pound and razor-sharp following an extended layoff, Murray stopped 19 of 20 shots. It’s sure to spark a reprise of the “Grea [...]

Playoff Preview: Penguins Can’t Afford a Letdown

After all, our guys haven’t exactly been lighting it up lately. Thank go [...]

Penguins Falter, Lose to Chicago

I hope last night’s 4-1 loss to Chicago at the United Center wasn’t somehow symbolic. Like in the Miss America pageant, when last year’s honoree hands her crown to the latest winner. Unfortunately, that’s what it felt like. A changing of the guard…or passing of the Cup, if you will. The King is dead, Long live the King. Talk about two teams [...]
