Game 3 Notes: Convergence, Scuderi, and Officiating

If there’s good news to take away from a 2-1 series deficit for the Penguins it’s the fact that there’s definite life in this team. They might be limping, they might be hurt, and they’re definitely playing with a hodge-podge of defensive replacements in key areas, but this has been a pretty tight series thus […]

Sources: Jim Rutherford will be removed as GM this offseason 

Now, we don’t get spoon-fed our info like others in town: But we’ve confirmed that Jim Rutherford is out as GM the minute the season ends, unless the season somehow ends in a Cup run. According to at least two people with knowledge of the situation, Rutherford will be asked to resign to avoid public […]

RECAP: Game 3. #HardParty. Pens lose, down 2-1 in the series.

Before the game, the #partyhard hashtag was making the rounds on social media because people wanted Andrew W.K ‘s “Party Hard” to become the Penguins’ new goal song. To illustrate how that doesn’t matter, the Penguins didn’t even get a shot on goal until 15 minutes into the game. Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers’ D had their own party […]

RECAP: Game 2. Reactions from the weekend as Pens tie series.

We honestly didn’t think the Pens had it in them to at least get the split in MSG to start the series, but they’ve done it. And they’ve done it by playing two games that both go into the “one of their better games of the season” category. The big news is that the power play has […]

PLAYOFF GAMEDAY: Round 1, Game 2. Pens looking to even up the series.

Pittsburgh Penguins at New York Rangers 8:00 PM – NBC Madison Square Garden, New York, New York It’s kind of unheralded for there to be optimism surrounding the Penguins after a playoff loss, but hanging with the Rangers the way they did in Game 1 wasn’t expected either. Outside of a start that couldn’t have been worse […]

RECAP: Game One. Rangers lead series 1-0.

Dark cloud: The Pens are three losses away from the season being over. Silver lining of the dark cloud: The Penguins played their strongest game in about a month. It has been a weird season, so when we say we feel some positive things about a playoff loss, it doesn’t feel that strange. The Penguins had some fight in […]

SERIES PREVIEW: Rangers vs Penguins. Against the odds.

There’s no use previewing this series, right? Conventional thinking can wrap up this traditional #1 seed vs. #8 seed matchup with two quick points. 1. The Penguins collapsed during the final month of the season under the weight of playoff pressure, injuries, and Ben Lovejoy. They are the classic example of a team “backing into the playoffs.” 2. The […]

Penguins vs. Rangers: By The Numbers

The Pittsburgh Penguins reward for making the NHL’s second season is a dance with the President Trophy winning New York Rangers. The same Rangers that dispatched the Penguins in seven games last year, writing a new chapter in the “Penguins fail in the post-season in a completely embarrassing fashion” story that we’ve all come to […]
