#Jagrwatch – Recap. Day 4: When Jagr is all around you.

Day four of the watch seems things are leveling off. So far, with only one really good rumor, this is still nothing more than a pipe dream. But #jagrwatch is devoid of facts. It is about a feeling. When you go into sheetz and this your number: Or when your realize your house heat is […]


RECAP: Game 49. A sign of life.

Guess what. Chicken butt. This was probably the most boring hockey game in 20 years. But you have to be prepared for games like it. Beau Bennett was scratched. He wasn’t missed. This was most likely just a wake-up call from HCMJ. A lot of people were flipping about this move, but remember: HCMJ coached […]

#Jagrwatch – Recap. Day 3: Fever pitch.

#Jagrwatch has soared into the weekend at a fever pitch. There is hype, but not a ton of actual news. One quick note about Jagr. Thought Ryan Wilson had a good piece over on hockeybuzz about this. [ HockeyBuzz ] As far as Jagr the player? Well let’s just say he’s still pretty OK at […]

What the Hell Happened: Literally watching Jagr, and Pens win

This can be really fun at times. The Pens were down 1-0 late, and we were already trying to find the last time the Pens were shut out in back-to-back games. That was in the 2009-2010 season in losses against the Sharks and Bruins. Instead, the Pens got a huge PP goal from Kunitz late, […]

#tbt That one game Brooks Orpik played on the fourth line.

Dateline – [January 29, 2008.] Brooks Orpik played on the fourth line because Michel Therrien was sick of him. Kind of amazing to think Orpik turned it around and has now made about 50 million playing defense. Pens won the game that night. [ When in Rome. Pens win ]


RECAP: Game 48. Disarray in D.C.

Sometimes there is no silver lining. Sometimes there is just a giant mess. Sometimes you just get your ass kicked. The Penguins waltzed into Washington fresh off a nice win against Winnipeg. They leave Washington in maybe their worst state yet. The only word that we can think of to describe this game is this: disarray. By […]

What the Hell Happened: Penguins get throttled by Caps 4-0.

Wow. The Penguins haven’t scored a goal against the Washington Capitals all season. They have only two wins against the Metro Division in two months. While it isn’t time to hit the panic button, the Penguins’ comfort level in the Metro Division isn’t what it used to be. They are now only three points ahead […]


RECAP: Game 47. The Winds of Change.

The All-Star Game is over, and it’s January 27th, which gives NHL teams over a month to set up their chess pieces in anticipation of the March 2nd Trade Deadline Day. The Penguins Universe finds itself at a really weird stage. The Pens aren’t playing horribly, but they aren’t playing great. The lineups are different […]
