Penguins Update: Murder, Inc.

Back in the day, the Italian-American Mafia and Jewish mob carried out their nefarious activities with the aid of well-established enforcement groups. Headed by notorious gangsters such as Louis “Lepke” Buchalter and Albert “The Mad Hatter” A...

Foes Beating Penguins at Their Own Game

Let’s go back in time. To Sunday, June 12, 2016. Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Up 3-games-to-2 on the San Jose Sharks, our Pittsburgh Penguins had snatched a 1-0 first period lead on a power-play goal by Brian Dumoulin. Employing their witherin...

Penguins Lurching at the Quarter Pole

I don’t know about you. But watching our Penguins get skewered yesterday afternoon by the Minnesota Wild was tougher for me to swallow than a leftover turkey sandwich without the mayo. Especially after the Pens had demolished a very tough Rangers...

Penguins and Oilers Dazzle

On a Tuesday evening in November when Presidential election results sent shockwaves reverberating through the nation, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Edmonton Oilers did a little bedazzling of their own before an appreciative throng of 18,576 patrons at...

WE DID IT! PENGUINS WIN THE CUP!

I can write this now without fear of jinxing our guys. Throughout the Stanley Cup playoffs and, especially, during the Finals, I’ve felt an odd sense of calm. As if our Penguins were somehow predestined or preordained to win the Cup. A notion reinf...

Penguins Overwhelm Rangers 6-3; Take Series

During the opening minutes of yesterday’s pivotal Game 5 at Consol Energy Center, the New York Rangers threw everything but the proverbial kitchen sink at the Pittsburgh Penguins. Rolled into a collective ball of do-or-die desperation, they pounded...

Penguins Bury Rangers 5-0

Paced by the spotless goaltending of rookie Matt Murray and a four-point effort from resurgent Evgeni Malkin, the Penguins dismantled the Rangers 5-0 in Game 4 of their opening-round playoff matchup last night to grab a commanding 3-1 series lead. M...

Rangers Turn About, Jolt Penguins 4-2

Refusing to play the role of postseason patsy, the New York Rangers walloped the Pittsburgh Penguins with a Game 2 counterpunch yesterday afternoon at Consol Energy Center. The result? A brisk 4-2 Rangers win. Not to mention a knotted up Eastern Con...

Penguins Power Past Rangers 5-2 in Game 1

Back in 1991, Penguins coaching legend Bob Johnson was fond of saying it took contributions from all 28 of his players to bring the Stanley Cup to Pittsburgh. In the wake of the Pens’ 5-2 thumping of the visiting New York Rangers last night in Game...

Are the Penguins Playoff-Ready?

Not long ago the Penguins were the hottest team in the National Hockey League. Toast of the ‘Burgh. Winners of eight in a row and 14 out of 15. Before a season-ending loss to the Flyers in a meaningless game (for the Pens) splashed a little cold wa...

Penguins A Cup Contender

After watching the Penguins clinch their tenth-consecutive playoff berth with a 5-0 drubbing of the New York Islanders on Saturday, I couldn’t help but reflect on last year. When we squeaked past a woeful Buffalo Sabres squad on the final day of th...

Penguins Stay Hot; Melt Rangers in OT

It wasn’t all that long ago that the New York Rangers had the Penguins’ number. Especially goalie Henrik Lundqvist. How times have changed. Exuding a grit and resilience that’s come to typify their efforts under Mike Sullivan, the P...

Penguins Rattle Lundqvist: Dump Rangers 4-1

Oh no. Here we go again. Those were my thoughts last night as I watched the Rangers celebrate Chris Kreider’s second-period goal on the big-screen TV at Wright’s Gym. Indeed, the game was following an all-too-familiar script. An on-ice version...

Penguins Cap-Sized

The trend, unfortunately, continues. Once again our Penguins fell prey to a key Metropolitan Division rival. A larger, more physical one to boot. The Pens certainly had their moments during last night’s disappointing 3-2 loss to Washington at th...

Penguins Nip Hurricanes 2-1 in Shootout

It wasn’t a pretty win. Especially by recent standards. Indeed, if the Penguins perhaps deserved a better fate during Wednesday’s 3-0 home-ice loss to the Rangers, they were downright lucky to escape from Raleigh last night with a point, let alon...

Penguins Update: Looking Ahead

“I believe that we will make the playoffs.” With a singular forceful statement, All-Star center Evgeni Malkin reflected the growing sense of optimism over the fortunes of our Pittsburgh Penguins. Almost overnight, it seems, they’ve transformed...

Penguins Update: Hagelin, Daley Provide a Spark

It isn’t the easiest thing to do. Improving a team through trades. Indeed, there’s a certain hit-or-miss quality about the process that comes with the turf. Kind of like panning for gold nuggets in a partially played-out stream, hoping to strike...

Penguins Get Hagelin from Ducks for Perron, Clendening

The Pittsburgh Penguins have a new left wing. Burning the midnight oil in the wake of last night’s 5-4 overtime loss to Tampa Bay, general manager Jim Rutherford swapped underachieving forward David Perron and spare defenseman Adam Clendening to An...

#TSRGamedayStyle: New York Rangers

The New York Rangers are a special team with lots of history — they're one of the oldest teams in the league, a member of the Original Six teams that started the NHL and the first franchise to win the Stanley Cup. In a town that has two teams for e...
