QUICK CAP: Pens cruise to a 4-1 win

Wow. Pens scored a couple quick ones, and the game was over. With the lead, the Pens wouldn't let the Kings anywhere Zatkoff. OUR THREE STARS 3. Zatkoff – He's now 9-0-1 in his last 10 games. 2. Malkin – He kicked off the scoring and added an assist. He also drew the game-changing 5-on-3 […]

Jeff Zatkoff probably starting tomorrow night

Pens have a back-to-back this weekend, and they're fortunate enough to have one of those games at home. Zatkoff has probably been eating flies and talking to himself in the corner since the Florida game, so it would be nice to give him a home start to get him a little more comfortable. Are we […]

R.I.P. Peter Laviolette

There are reports soon to be confirmed that Peter Laviolette has been fired. We'll always have this fist pump:  

Around the Metro Division

Taking a quick look around the Metropolitan Division. The Canes lost to Detroit in OT in their season opener and then beat the now 0-3-0 Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday. The Isles have beaten the Devils in a shootout and lost to the Jackets in a shootout. The Jackets lost to Calgary and then beat the […]

Where are the Red Wings? Central Division preview.

So weird talking about the Western Conference since the Pens didn't even sniff them last season. But, oh, well. 1. Chicago Blackhawks The Stanley Cup Champion Blackhawks are probably the most likely team to repeat in recent history.  There wasn’t a ton of change to the roster, although Dave Bolland will be missed after he […]

Spread the word: #PNCblackout

Bucco Fever has swept the city, and the Pens are pretty much on hold until at least after Tuesday's night's Wild Card playoff game at PNC Park. If you're going, the players have asked for everyone to wear black. It looks like mud in a hockey arena, but it will be probably look surreal at […]

RECAP: Preseason Game 5. Pens win in SO.

The biggest takeaway from this game is that Jeff Zatkoff looked solid with a new weight on his shoulders. And it was another come-from-behind victory for the Pens, jump-started by Kris Letang. — Crosby and Malkin saw some time on the PK, which we're hoping isn't just a preseason experiment. — Kris Letang's backhand should […]

MAF not recognized in top-25 list of NHL goalies

ESPN's Scott Burnside tweeted this, and it's pretty interesting. They are kicking off a series where they are polling NHL players about who is the best at their respective positions. The list for the top 25 goalies is in, and MAF didn't even make the cut. UPDATE: Whoops. Looks like they surveyed a panel of […]

NHL Network picking up Pens-Jackets Sunday night

Our boots on the ground, @walterflanagan, has reported Mike Ross from the Hockey This Morning show on Sirius or XM or whatever said the NHL Network will be showing the Pens and Jackets Sunday night. 6:00 start. Speaking of which, Meesh has a write-up about the looming Pens-Jackets rivalry. Good read as always.  

The new Pens Points app shuts all the back doors

It was a miracle run for a lot of people last season who were making multiple moves on Pens gamedays to get IceTime codes, radio codes, TV codes, Penguin Party Time codes, and everything else. The big moneymaker for everyone was the QR codes in the IceTime programs, but fun time is over: The focus […]
