Pens close on Parise, eyeing Suter?

With the Penguins unable to sign Jordan Staal, who just signed a deal with Carolina that was identical to the one he refused from Pittsburgh, it immediately became clear that New Jersey forward Zach Parise was the Penguins top priority this offseason.  But the Penguins aren’t the only team with the top 3 forward on […]

Let’s make that 10, Penguins beat Rangers

I’m going to have to go to the thesaurus to find more words for dominate, punish, beat, destroy etc because that’s what the Penguins have been doing to their opponents lately and I’m starting to feel repetitive.    It doesn’t hurt that a couple more of our big guns returned to the lineup last night in […]

Kris Letang will play tonight against Rangers

It’s official, Kris Letang confirmed this morning that he will play tonight against the Rangers.   For the first time all season, all our big guns are going to be on the ice.  When Crosby returned the first time Kris Letang was out with a concussion then.  We also have all three of our centers, […]

Letang rumored to return against the Rangers

Sidney Crosby might not be the only one that could be back in the Penguins lineup tomorrow.  It’s rumored that Kris Letang, who was out for the last several games with a recurrence of concussion like symptoms, could dress for Thursday’s showdown with the Rangers.  The return of Letang would be a huge boost for […]

Pens closing in on Rangers for top spot in the East

As the Penguins continue the NHL’s best stretch since January, the Rangers have started to show some signs of weakness as New York has seen it’s once comfortable division lead dwindle down to a mere 6 points.  The Rangers have lost two in a row while the Penguins have rattled off seven straight wins and […]

Pens push towards the post-season

With the post-season about a month away, the Penguins have really started to hit their stride.  They moved into 4th in the East while holding the second highest point total in the Conference behind the Rangers and their special teams rank among the top five in the NHL for both the PP and PK.  The […]

Kris Letang out with concussion symptons

After Kris Letang took a hit to the head in the first period of yesterday’s game against Dallas, he never returned to the game.  Today he did travel with the team to Denver but will not be playing with the team on Saturday due to concussion symptoms.  This is not a good thing at all […]

It could be a costly 2 points for the Pens in shootout win over Dallas

If you were able to watch last night’s Penguins game against the Dallas Stars then you know it was nothing if not exciting.  This game had great goals, really great goal tending despite the 3-3 score and lots of drama.  Though this game could prove to be very costly to the Pens down the line.  […]

Malkin has a big weekend as Pens take 2 at home

Evgeni Malkin has shown glimpses of what he was truly capable of since he was drafted in 2004 but what we are witnessing on the Penguins current run over the last few weeks is nothing short of remarkable.  In the last 14 games the Penguin Center put up 15 G, 9 A and a +10 rating […]

Penguins update: critical stretch, contract extensions and Crosby’s health

The Penguins were riding high coming out of the All-Star break and rattled off their 8th win in a row before falling to the Leafs 1-0 Wednesday.  After a couple road tests Saturday and Sunday against the Bruins and Devils, the Penguins have a chance to make another push in the standings to catch the […]

6 Penguins in One Writer’s NHL Top 100

ESPN’s John Buccigross, one of the only ESPN folks that I actually like (probably because he likes hockey), came out with a list of the NHL’s top 100 this last week, and he showed some of our Pens some love.  Six Penguins showed up on the writer’s list with all six being 75 or better, three in […]

NHL All-Star Draft: Penguins on different teams

Last night was the NHL All Star Draft for the game this weekend.  I think this is so genius and so much fun to have two captains pick their own team rather than just doing East versus the West.  Could you imagine if the NFL did the Pro Bowl like that?  The two captains were […]

James Neal Added to All-Star Game this weekend

And in a move that should have happened when they announced the original All-Stars James Neal was added to the All-Star game this weekend in place of Alex Ovechkin.  Ovechkin decided not to participate in light of his three game suspension.   James Neal will now join teammates Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang […]

Kris Letang added to All-Star Game this weekend

Evgeni Malkin won’t be making the trip to Ottawa alone, because teammate Kris Letang will be joining him for the All-Star Game this weekend.  This will be Letang’s second consecutive trip to the All-Star Game.  Letang has only been back from injury for 3 games since he went out with a concussion in […]
