Penguins Update: Time to Act

I’ve been the voice of calm through a stormy first quarter of the season. Indeed, while my fellow PenguinPoop writers have suggested a shakeup to varying degrees, I’ve preached patience. Don’t panic, I’ve written. No need to rush the kids, I’ve counseled. Wait’ll we play some home games, I’ve advised. In the wake of an immensely frustrating [...]

Penguins Impressions

Back in the day, there used to be a radio show on WYDD called “Jazzz Impressions.” During the segment, which aired on Sunday nights, noted jazz aficionado Jim DeCesare would play tunes featuring his favorite performers.

From Russia with Love: Malkin Leads Penguins Assault

Maybe my title—lifted from an old James Bond flick—isn’t politically correct. Especially given the heightened intrigue and tension present between east and west in our world today. But it sure was nice to see Evgeni Malkin back in the Penguins’ lineup last night. Like a giant Sukhoi Superjet swooping in from Moscow’s Sheremetyovo Internationa [...]
