PRESEASON GAMEDAY 8: One more for the road.

Seems like this happens every year. The initial excitement for the open of training camp slowly turns into the loathing of everything preseason. But then, before you know it, the regular season is about to hit you like an SUV driven by Caitlyn Jenner. We’re almost there. Buckle-up, buckaroos.


PRESEASON GAMEDAY 7: Pens host the Wings at CONSOL

The Pens trumped Tampa Bay last night 4-2 in the inaugural Hockeyville USA game. Despite the fact that this was a preseason event thought up by a cheese company which included an infinite amount of Slapshot references, it was good for the people of Johnstown to see the Pens get a win at their local rink. Two things glaringly stood […]


PRESEASON GAMEDAY 6: Pens-Lightning Square Off in Johnstown

The French-Canadian Penguins didn’t exactly impress last night in Quebec City, but tonight the Pens will send another split-squad to Johnstown, PA to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning. We typically loathe the preseason for numerous reasons. It’s too long. Hell, the regular season itself is probably too long. Outside of the opportunity to see […]


PRESEASON GAMEDAY 5: Pens take on the Canadiens in Quebec City

It’s only a matter of time before Quebec City gets a hockey team again. Tonight, they’ll have to settle for the Pens and Habs in an exhibition game. The puck drops at 7:00 EST. As far as we know, the game will not be televised locally. The Pens play three consecutive games this week – […]


PRESEASON GAMEDAY 3: Pens at Detroit

It’s hard not to read too much into preseason games. The Pens toasted the Canes 7-3 Tuesday night in Pittsburgh. Kessel and Crosby looked sharp, the young guys did some stuff, even Gonch got in on the scoring. I can’t recall the last time we were all collectively invested in a preseason game and overwhelmingly excited about […]


PRESEASON GAMEDAY 2: Carolina Hurricanes at Pittsburgh Penguins

I was sitting at a bar last evening, waiting for my bacon pretzel club to be complete so I could take it home and devour it as quickly as possible, when a man became audibly distraught over the fact that the Penguins preseason game at Columbus would not be televised. Here’s what he missed: oops — NHL Blue […]


PRESEASON GAMEDAY 1: Penguins at Columbus

Hockey’s back. Well, kind of. The Pens are sending a group of players to Columbus to play some preseason hockey tonight. You won’t be able to watch the game, but it is going to happen. That’s what we’re told anyway. Here is the aforementioned group of players who will be taking part in said hockey […]


Bob Grove removed from position as Penguins broadcast radio host

One of the most recognizable voices for nearly 20 years will no longer be heard on the Penguins Radio Network. As Josh Yohe from DKonPittsburghSports is reporting, Bob Grove, who has spent the majority of his career covering the Penguins – most recently heard during intermissions and pre and post-game shows – has been removed from his […]


Hurricanes Owner Makes Bizarre Comments About Penguins, Rutherford

So, this is strange. Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos held a press conference Wednesday to discuss the first day of free agency. Instead of focusing on his own team – the one that went 30-41-11 last season and missed the playoffs by 27 points – Karmanos spent a large portion of the time covering the current state of the […]


Pens re-sign Ian Cole

He’ll get a three-year deal with an annual cap hit of $2.1 million. Cole was set to be a restricted free agent Wednesday had a deal not been made. He had one goal to go along with eight points in 20 games with the Pens last season after coming over from St. Louis for the player […]


PLAYOFF GAMEDAY: Round 1, Game 2. Pens looking to even up the series.

Pittsburgh Penguins at New York Rangers 8:00 PM – NBC Madison Square Garden, New York, New York It’s kind of unheralded for there to be optimism surrounding the Penguins after a playoff loss, but hanging with the Rangers the way they did in Game 1 wasn’t expected either. Outside of a start that couldn’t have been worse […]


Top 10 Moments from the Penguins 2014-15 Regular Season

It was a wild ride, but the Pens made it through the 2014-15 regular season and are now primed for a run in the playoffs. We’ll have plenty to look ahead to in the upcoming days, but right now we wanted to take a moment to back at some of our favorite happenings from Game 1 to 82.

Pittsburgh Penguins (42-27-12) at Buffalo Sabres (23-50-8) 7:00 PM – ROOT Sports First Niagara Center, Buffalo, New York It’s the last game of the season. And on this random Saturday night in Buffalo, the fate of the 2014-15 Pittsburgh Penguins is on the line. This season has turned into such a train wreck, we’ve found […]



We weren’t going to bring back the Tweetcap until playoff time, but then it became possible that there wouldn’t be a playoffs at all.  As it turned out, we couldn’t have picked a better night. Can’t blame anyone for being mad, honestly. Here. We. Go. We need to get Potash a better desk in his […]


Gameday 78: East on 70. Pens take on the Jackets.

Pittsburgh Penguins (42-24-11) at Columbus Blue Jackets (38-35-4) 2:00 PM – ROOT Sports Nationwide Arena, Columbus, Ohio Only five games to go… Prediction The Pens only muster one point from this weekend.
