Didn’t even realize there was a game on. We were too busy making stunned gifs of Pirate fans. Three things to know about 1.
Pittsburgh Penguins @ Detroit Red Wings 7:30 PM – ROOT Sports Joe Louis Arena – Detroit, Michigan Sidney Crosby returns to the lineup tonight for the final preseason game before the regular season begins. He will likely be reunited with former linemates Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis.
Penguins goaltending prospect Tristan Jarry has wasted no time picking up where he left off with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League. Fresh off of a Memorial Cup and Penguins training camp, Jarry has been nothing short of amazing in his return to the CHL. He’s 2-0 to start the season, both […]
Fresh off a franchise record-tying 51-win season, the Pittsburgh Penguins head into the 2014-15 NHL season in hopes of cementing their ninth straight playoff appearance. The Penguins have hoisted one Stanley Cup since their postseason streak began in 2007, beating the Red Wings in a much allured seven-game series in 2009. In light of the […]
Preseason is slowly turning into “Where the hell is Evgeni Malkin?” If no one sees him on the ice by next weekend, we’ve got some problems. We recapped this game. Pens lost 4-1. Not a great time.
Pittsburgh Penguins (2-2) @ Minnesota Wild (1-1-1) 8:00 PM – ROOT Sports Xcel Energy Center – St Paul, Minnesota No Sidney Crosby again tonight, he is still dealing with the loss of his grandmother. It looks like we may see him Wednesday against Detroit. We will, however, see Pascal Dupuis in his first preseason game […]
We were supposed to get our first look at Crosby this preseason, but he had some family issues to deal with. So we settled for Brian Gibbons vs. Letang/Ehrhoff.
Columbus Blue Jackets (3-0) at Pittsburgh Penguins (1-2) 4 PM – Televised on the CW and NHL Network Consol Energy Center – Pittsburgh, PA The big news is that both Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz will be making their preseason debuts today. Crosby has only been practicing since Tuesday, so how many minutes he sees […]
This doesn’t look good: Bennett has been the best player in training camp this year. He’s battled wrist injuries the last two seasons. This sounds completely awful.
Preseason games are especially hard to watch. It feels even worse this preseason. But the Penguins are getting some good stuff from third liners and their young D. Some shit:
Minnesota Wild (0-1) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (0-2) 7:00 PM – No TV Broadcast Consol Energy Center – Pittsburgh, PA The Penguins have lost both of their preseason games thus far, but honestly who cares. At this point, it’s all about projecting the look of the team, and even that has been hard to grasp with guys […]
There was only a faint Internet stream available for this game. It was the Columbus feed, and they are horrible. Some notes on this one:
