It looks like Game 7 hero Maxime Talbot will be returning to play tonight when the Pens head to Ottawa. Talbot has been out due to shoulder surgery in the off-season and will play for the first time this season. Players are finally starting to get back from injury. First Malkin, and now Talbot and [...]
Injuries are part of the game, but you have got to be kidding me. The Pittsburgh Penguins have just recalled defense man Ben Lovejoy from Wilkes-Barre. This is in response to Brooks Orpik going down in Tuesday’s game against the Boston Bruins. This means that the Penguins have ONLY 1 defenseman (Mark Eaton) from last [...]
Just a couple of weeks ago, I was questioning when the Pens magic would run out for a little while. My question has been answered. The Penguins escaped from the HP Pavilion Center with nothing more than their lives last night as they were officially schooled by the San Jose Sharks. That game ended the [...]
Today, the Pens announce that Evgeni Malkin will be out of the lineup for 2 - 3 weeks due to a shoulder strain. Malkin was trying to play through it, but the team decided that it would be best for him to rest it. Afterall, it’s only October (almost November) and we would much rather [...]
The Penguins have started the season off right where they left off last year and that is playing great hockey. After tonight’s domination of the St. Louis Blues which consisted of a great team game for the Penguins, they now find themselves leading the NHL with an 8-1-0 record.
I, like all sane Penguins fans, are [...]
The Pittsburgh Penguins have started the 2009-2010 season off with a bang. Not only were they able to hang their Stanley Cup Championship banner before the first game of the year, they are off to a great start. At 6-1-0, their only loss came to the Phoenix Coyotes who quite simply played better than Pittsburgh [...]
The Pittsburgh Penguins walk away from their first week of the 2009-2010 regular season with a 3 - 1 records. They had wins against the New York Rangers, New York Islanders, and Philadelphia Flyers. Their one loss came from a shutdown that Phoenix pitched in Mellon Arena.
Overall, the Penguins have started out the season playing [...]
Friday will mark the start of a new NHL season for the Pittsburgh Penguins and the last year that they will play in Mellon Arena. Of course, what better way to kick it off than raise their Stanley Cup Championship banner?
Just like every season there are lots of questions to be asked. Will there be [...]
Ah yes, it is that time again. The NHL season is quickly approaching and I am back from my hibernation. I love this time of the year for several different reasons and they all begin with the letter ‘N’. Yes, that’s right… NFL, NCAA Football, and the NHL. I am again privileged to be able [...]
With a little more than 2 million left in the salary cap, it looks like the Penguins offseason is almost complete. The only item left on their agenda is finding a backup for Marc-Andre Fleury. The Penguins have two options at this point and that is to find a backup via Free Agency or to [...]
