Penguins Update: Rutherford Named GM of the Year

pp0638 The National Hockey League confirmed last night what Pittsburgh Penguins fans already knew. Jim Rutherford, who did a masterful job of transforming a shopworn black-and-gold team into Stanley Cup champions, was named General Manager of the Year in a vote of his peers at the league’s Annual Awards banquet in Las Vegas. With typical modesty, t [...]

Penguins Stanley Cup Update: Chinks in Murray’s Armor?

pp0632 We’ve all heard the comparisons. He’s the next Ken Dryden. A sure-fire NHL All-Star for years to come. Maybe even a future Hall of Famer. The plaudits…and excitement…were understandable.

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?

With the stealth of a black (and gold) cat slipping from the shadows at the bewitching hour, Nick Bonino materialized–seemingly out of nowhere–to score the series-winner last night in Game 6 before an anxious throng at Consol Energy Center, effectively pounding a wooden stake through the Washington Capita [...]

Capitals Thump Penguins 3-1

00ppfront It ain’t over till it’s over. Whether the Washington Capitals used that time-honored Yogi Berra-ism as motivation to claw back from the brink in their second-round series with the Penguins is anybody’s guess. But they sure played like it in Game 5. From Alex Ovechkin’s clutch game-opening goal and two-point performance to a bounce-back 30-sav [...]
