Penguins Playoff Update: The Comeback Kids?

pp0623 The time for a more traditional post had long since passed when I got to wondering. How many times have the Penguins rallied from a 3-games-to-2 deficit to win a playoff series? I decided to do some digging. The Pens have overcome 3-2 series deficits (or worse) to emerge victorious six times in their storied postseason history. Coincidence o [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: Time to Switch Part II

pp0621 Back in the day, before the evils of smoking were fully understood, a popular cigarette brand used to boast, “Tareyton smokers would rather fight than switch!” Mind you, I’m not trying to start a battle among Penguins faithful.

Eyes bulging. Sweat pouring from his brow. I’ll tell ya’ I don’t get no respect. Actually, it’s been a season of quiet vindication for Ben Lovejoy. Followin [...]

Penguins Push Capitals to Brink

00ppfront Vying for control of their second-round series, the Penguins and Capitals served up a taut Game 4 thriller last night before a sellout throng at Consol Energy Center. Indeed, the Pens’ 3-2 overtime victory was packed with enough plot twists and momentum shifts to do Alfred Hitchcock proud. The opening scene bore an uncanny resemblance to the [...]
