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:
Pittsburgh Penguins (0-1) at Columbus Blue Jackets (1-0) Nationwide Arena – Columbus, Ohio Game 2 of the preseason takes the Penguins to Columbus to play a familiar foe in the Blue Jackets.
It was funny when the Score fell for it. But ESPN.COM? Over the weekend theScore got burned by this fake tweet: Four days later ESPN’s Katie Strang was none the wiser: All eyes are on Johnston, formerly of the Western Hockey League’s Portland Winterhawks, to see what he can do with the star-studded Penguins lineup. […]
Had no idea Tony Granato was an assistant coach with the Wings. Biggest story of the night. Paul Martin didn’t seem concerned about playing, really. Penguins got a powerplay early in the third. Bennett and Sutter seem to be building chemistry. Farnham tried to fight some guy. Really strange performance by him. Spaling and Comeau […]
Brutal to watch is the best way to explain the second period. Honestly, sucks we committed to writing in a notes-by-period format. Bortuzzo killing Ryan Sproul was basically the highlight of the second. The Red Wings got another powerplay goal late in the second. Rob Scuderi: yikes. Bobby Farnham from the Penguins died. Vine via
