Penguins Update: Stempniak Provides a Spark

pp0442 Lately the Pittsburgh Penguins haven’t had a whole lot to write home about. The black and gold is mired in an ugly 2-4-1 funk. They’re a mediocre 6-6-2 since the Olympic break. With superstar Evgeni Malkin (hairline foot fracture) joining the ranks of the wounded, the injury bug continues to take a wicked toll. While good news is decidedly to [...]

Penguins History: Nick Harbaruk

pp0414 Few players have overcome greater obstacles to play in the NHL than former Penguin Mikolaj Nicholas “Nick” Harbaruk. Born in Nazi-occupied Drohiczyn, Poland on August 16, 1943, Harbaruk escaped his war-torn country as a young boy and settled in Toronto with his family. Nick quickly adapted to his new home. Like most Canadian youths, he develo [...]

Penguins History: Pat Boutette

pp0366 As a rookie hopeful fresh out of the University of Minnesota-Duluth, Pat Boutette received a baptism by fire … from his own teammate. While trying to make an impression during a Toronto Maple Leafs training camp he engaged in several fights with NHL penalty king Dave “Tiger” Williams. The scrappy youngster passed his first test. Boutette’s sp [...]

Penguins History: Eddie “The Entertainer” Shack

Shack He wasn’t the best player to don a Penguins jersey. Not by a long shot. But few players in the history of the National Hockey League ever generated more press—or cultivated a more loyal following—than Edward Steven Phillip Shack. Born of hearty Ukrainian stock, Shack grew up in Sudbury, Ontario. As a teenager he worked in a coal mine and a lo [...]

Dupuis Shines as Penguins Rake Leafs 3-2

00ppfront With temperatures hovering magically at 66 degrees, the Penguins unveiled a magnificent statue of their owner and all-time greatest player, Mario Lemieux, at a special midday ceremony on Wednesday outside of CONSOL Energy Center. Too bad Mario didn’t fare as well in the NBC Hockey Network broadcast booth that evening. Indeed, when No. 66 join [...]

Toronto’s MacArthur Parks Penguins 1-0

00ppfront Just when it seemed the high-flying Penguins might never lose, Toronto snapped the black-and-gold’s eight-game winning streak Wednesday night in a taut defensive struggle at Air Canada Centre. Nemesis Clarke MacArthur (seven goals in 20 games versus the Pens) supplied the offense, while James Reimer (25 saves) outdueled Brent Johnson in a bat [...]

Penguins Burn Leafs 5-4 in Shootout

00ppfront I’ve pretty much given up trying to come up with superlatives to describe the Penguins’ 5-4 shootout win over Toronto at CONSOL Energy Center on Tuesday night. Awesome? Too trite. Spine-tingling? Close, but no cigar. Amazing? Gettin’ warm. It wasn’t enough that the Pens overcame a 4-1 third-period deficit—not to mention a stirring two-goal ef [...]

Penguins History: Duane Rupp

Rupp Next to Ron Stackhouse, perhaps no Penguin was less appreciated in his time than defenseman Duane Rupp. Ironically, the fans’ dissatisfaction stemmed from a similar cause. Like Stackhouse, Rupp was a big player for his day (6’1” 195) who didn’t fit the mold of a stay-at-home bruiser. A product of the “Original Six” era, Rupp became New York R [...]

So Much for Home Sweet Home: Pens Lose to Maple Leafs

00ppfront 14 shots on goal….4 goals ….and I am not necessarily blaming Fleury Why can’t the Pens play with the same intensity that they have with one minute remaining and down by a goal, for any other part of the game? The difference between a winning team and a losing team is the difference between Clarke MacArthur burying a nice pas [...]

Trade Analysis – All Day Long

00ppfront Happy Trade Deadline Day to everyone in Hockeyland.  Hopefully, one of these days, this will be a national holiday both here and in Canada, but until that time, I’ll be here analysing the days deals. First up: Toronto sends Alexei Ponikarovsky to the Penguins for Luca Caputi and Martin Skoula Ray Shero continues his yearly shopping trip [...]
