Penguins History: Robert Lang

Bob Lang As a member of the illustrious draft class of 1990 that included Penguins prodigy Jaromir Jagr, Robert Lang was projected to be a star. Indeed, the Teplice, Czechoslovakia native possessed all the tools. A smooth, powerful skater, the 6’3” 217-pounder had excellent vision and an exquisite touch, both for passing and shooting. While Lang event [...]

Penguins History: Jim Johnson

Jimmy Johnson It’s somehow fitting that former Penguins defenseman Jim Johnson played his college hockey for the University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs. Indeed, the undersized defenseman displayed bulldog tenacity while carving out a solid 13-year NHL career. Although he enjoyed an outstanding collegiate career, Johnson was bypassed in the Entry Draft. Fo [...]

Penguins Malkin-ize Capitals in OT

00ppfront Ever since they were drafted No. 1 and No. 2 overall in 2004, Alex Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin have provided an intriguing contrast in styles—both on and off the ice. While the brash and colorful Ovechkin has grabbed the headlines and endorsement deals, Malkin has quietly gone about his business with a determined excellence. On Sunday afternoo [...]

Capitals Blank Penguins 1-0

00ppfront The weather in Pittsburgh has been unseasonably warm in the New Year, with temperatures hovering around 50 degrees. It’s a pity the same can’t be said for the local hockey team, which remains colder than an Arctic clipper howling across the frozen tundra. A night after absorbing perhaps their most humbling defeat of the season, the Peng [...]

Bombs Away: Caps Can’t Get Enough Of The Pens

00ppfront The Pens and Caps is more than a rivalry, it has become a story of unrequited love.  Or obsession.  If we have learned nothing else about the Caps this season, especially through the eyes of 24/7, it’s that they have this non-stop focus on the Pens. During the HBO series, we saw constant references by Caps’ coach Boudreau to the P [...]

Pens Fans: PLEASE Stop the “WOO”

WOO I have to get this out there before tonight’s home game… This could possibly be the most important post I make all season.  If you’ve been to a game since the second half of last season, you will probably understand why. The “WOO” has become the most annoying thing to overtake Pens games.  Even more annoying than the wave.  It sta [...]

Mario Lemieux’s Greatest Goal Finally Gets it’s Day in Court

Mario Lemieux 80's Starting tomorrow the Pittsburgh Penguins are giving fans a chance to vote on the greatest goal Mario Lemieux ever scored in a video tournament at www.gnc.pittsburghpenguins.com. I have seen Mario’s greatest goals video, the Penguins greatest goals video, I have even seen the Pittsburgh Penguin DVD set that has supposedly the Pittsburgh [...]

The Canadiens are out coaching and out playing the Capitals

00ppfront Who the Penguins play next round will be determined by the winner of the Washington Capitals vs. the Montreal Canadiens game tonight. If the Capitals win we play Boston, if the Canadiens win we play the Canadiens. I’m not so sure that I would rather play the Canadiens. Having them eliminate the Caps in the first round is very enticing, [...]

Gameday Poop: Penguins vs Capitals – Ovechkins Goal Drought

pp0215 If Alexander Ovechkin goes without a goal tonight it will match the second longest drought he has had in his career. Ovechkin has just 1 goal in the seven games since US Marshalls showed up at the Washington Capitals training facility to question players about their ties to the “Steroid Doctor”, Dr. Nagel. I’m not saying tha [...]

Are the Capitals That Much Better Than Everyone Else?

Ovechkin I want to give the Capitals their due as they are a very good hockey team.  They have so much talent all through their line-up.  The only weakness that anyone might find is the goaltending, but Theodore has been playing well lately — maybe that problem is solved.  Are they really 17 points better than anyone else in the East?  I decide [...]
