A Message for the Penguins: Get Back to Basics

A year can do a lot to your memory. Especially when you get to be my age. I’m trying to part the haze and remember how the Penguins played last spring. Every once in a while an image pops through. Fast comes to mind. Jet fast. And precise. I recall us advancing the puck with a combination of crisp, tape-to-tape passes. If we dumped the puck [...]

Capitals Rout Penguins, Knot Series at 3-3

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse for our Penguins, they did. In a stinko performance, the likes of which hadn’t been seen since Mike Sullivan took over as coach, the Pens were throttled by Washington in Game Six. The disheartening 5-2 defeat evened the Second Round series at 3 games apiece and set up a Game Seven showdown in [...]

Penguins Playoff Update: Adjustments Needed

Playing the right way. It’s a catch phrase coach Mike Sullivan often uses during his postgame comments to describe a Penguins victory. One we haven’t heard in a while, and with good reason.

Still, while our Penguins have captured a remarkable seven of nine playoff contests thus far, they haven’t earned many style points along the way. With an extra day between games and a little time to kill, I thought I’d share some nu [...]

Penguins Stave Off Capitals 3-2

They say all is fair in love and war. Perhaps in hockey, too. Two nights after Washington kayoed our captain, Sidney Crosby, in dastardly fashion, the Penguins resorted to a little chicanery in Game 4 to ensure a win. With two minutes remaining and the locals clinging to a precarious 3-2 lead, forward Nick Bonino bought a bogus high-sticking [...]
