Penguins drop second straight game to Islanders

When they lost on Tuesday, I thought oh well maybe they were feeling cocky and one got away from them, better to happen now than in the playoffs.  But after last night do we need to worry?  I still don’t think so.   If we were going to drop a few games, I would […]

Penguins clinch playoff berth with win over Nashville

It was just another night of beautiful hockey for Penguins fans.  Another 5 goal night.  Another 2 goals for who better be MVP Evgeni Malkin.  Not to mention Fleury recorded his 40th win of the season, the first goaltender to hit that mark so far this year.  Oh and James Neal had 4 assists.  This […]

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 […]

Penguins make it 9 straight with dominance over Bruins

If there was ever a statement game, and the Pens have made a lot of statements lately I feel like this was definitely one.  Completely punishing the very physical reigning Stanley Cup Champion Bruins is just what the Penguins did yesterday on their way to a 5-2 win and their 9th in a row.

The […]

Penguins make it 7 in a row, first place within reach

Remember when the Penguins lost 6 in a row and we all panicked?  And there was talk of the Pens not even making the playoffs?  Yeah me either.  Because since January 13th the Penguins have gone an impressive 19-4-1 and are 2nd in points in the Eastern Conference and within reach of the first place […]

What Makes Sidney Crosby so Good for the Penguins? 2011 Edition

Since Penguins captain Sidney Crosby returned from his 10 month absence due to concussion related symptoms, he has taken the NHL by storm, again.  After just 5 games Crosby has 11 points (2G, 9A) and a +6 rating as he lead the Penguins to a 3-1-1 record.  It’s almost like he he never missed a game, […]

Fleury’s 20th Career Shutout Lifts Pens to 4 in a Row

So far this season, the Penguins have had different players rise to the occassion in the absence of their two big guns, but one thing has remained constant during this hot start and that’s goaltending.  Marc-Andre Fleury played a phenominal game en route to earning his 20th career shutout as the Pens won by a […]

Pens sign Dupuis, offer Jagr one year deal

It was announced yesterday that the Penguins signed winger Pascal Dupuis to a two year deal worth $3 Million dollars.  Which puts him at $1.5 million against this years cap and only a slight raise from last year’s $1.4 million.  Originally Ray Shero tried to offer a one year deal but Dupuis wanted more than […]

Lightning defeat Penguins 4-2, force Game 7

Another devastating loss last night by the Penguins in Tampa Bay.  It just seemed that we couldn’t catch a break to save our lives.  The Pens offense just looked pathetic, particularly on the power plays, of which we had 5.  During a couple of the power plays you wouldn’t have known we were […]

Pens Continue to Improve

The Penguins put a strangle hold on their first round series againt Ottawa last night by defeating the Senators 7-4 in what can only be described as a wildly exciting game. The game was played at a frantic pace (especially in the second period) which lead to plenty of odd man rushes and scoring opportunities […]
