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 […]


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.

Penguins punch ticket to the Playoffs

Hey man, we lived through the 2001-2005 era of Penguins hockey, like many of you. After that horror, no matter what, we’ll always enjoy a trip to the playoffs. Plus, think of it like this.
