Hey, look, it’s the Rangers. And with that, we get reintroduced to not only one of the worst fan bases in sports, but one of the worst subsets of the humanity: New Yorkers. Over the years, our hatred has probably shifted more to the Flyers and Capitals. But let’s not kid ourselves; the Rangers are […]
You know what’s sad? This happened 8 years ago. That in itself isn’t sad, but the fact that someone who was 10 at the time is now 18 and getting STD’s. Someone who was 4 at the time and doesn’t even remember anything about it is now 12, has the Internet, and can read this. […]
Take this with the tiniest grain of salt, but could it be? After some very light investigative work, this guy seems legit… The Pens announced today that they’re going with the Pittsburgh-gold jerseys in round one, so if MAF is ordering new helmets for rush delivery… h/t to Joe Guzy (
It wasn’t clear after Saturday if Matt Murray was hurt and would miss time, but maybe it is now. Many ways to look at this, but we’ll wait for the Penguins to announce why before we panic. Matt Murray was hurt in this collision yesterday: Jeff Zatkoff relieved Murray yesterday. Jarry’s stats: Wilkes Barre clinched […]
Flyers 3 Pens 1 Record: 48-26-8, 104 pts Goals Bonino (9) from Hagelin, Kessel Penalties Lovejoy (holding the stick) – Overly aggressive (wraps his arm around the stick of Cousins in front of the net so he’s unable to do anything in front) Sheary (embellishment) – Bad Call (gets slashed by Schultz and drops to […]
PENGUINS (48-25-8) at FLYERS (39-27-14) 3:00 PM EST – ROOT Sports Wells Fargo Center – Philadelphia, PA The Penguins needed all 82 games to earn their way into the playoffs last season. It took a win over the lowly Buffalo Sabres in the final game to make it in. The final game of this season […]
Pens 4 Capitals 3 (OT) Record: 48-25-8, 104 pts Goals Cullen (15) from Kuhnhackl Cullen (16) (SH) unassisted Sheary (7) from Sundqvist, Sestito Crosby (36) from Letang Penalties Cole (delay of game) – Careless (flips the puck over the glass from below the goal line in the Penguins zone) Letang (slashing) – Bad (gives the […]
The look on that guy’s face is magical: Gotta wonder if his homophobic rhetoric comes back to bite him if this video surfaces at the workplace. For some unknown reason, we respect the girl’s decision to wear a flower headband.
The biggest news from Thursday night is the Pens have locked up home ice in the first round.
PENGUINS (47-25-8) at CAPITALS (55-17-7) 7:00 PM EST – ROOT Sports Verizon Center – Washington, D.C. With only two games remaining in the regular season, the Pens seem primed for a real shot at making a deep run in the playoffs. If that happens, at some point they will be likely to run into tonight’s […]
There’s no gimmick around the Penguins recent run of shellacking opponents in five and six goal performances. There’s no smoke and mirrors behind the Penguins gaudy puck possession numbers. What head coach Mike Sullivan has done is quite simple: evaluate your roster, instill discipline, back that up with video analysis, and play to your […]
Pens 5 Senators 3 Record: 47-25-8, 102 pts Goals Hornqvist (22) from Bonino, Schultz Crosby (34) from Hornqvist, Letang Hagelin (13) from Bonino Hagelin (14) from Bonino Crosby (35) (EN) from Letang, Kunitz Penalties Lovejoy (hooking) – Bad (loses Hoffman bursting past him for an open lane to the net and hooks him trying to hinder […]
This was billed as NorrisMania. Letang vs. Karlsson. Letang was more noticeable and had the better game overall, but that’s not gonna sway people from giving Karlsson the Norris. Can’t really blame them, though.
PENGUINS (46-25-8) at SENATORS (36-34-9) 7:30 PM EST – ROOT Sports Canadian Tire Centre – Ottawa, Ontario So listen, the Pens are probably going to lose again. We don’t know how, or why, or who it will be against, we just know that it is possible to occur. We’ve seen a lot of streaks in […]
Pens 6 Flyers 2 Record: 46-25-8, 100 pts Goals Crosby (33) (PP) from Kessel, Letang Bennett (6) from Sheary, Schultz Hornqvist (21) unassisted Hagelin (12) from Bonino, Letang Fehr (7) from Cullen, Kuhnhackl Fehr (8) (SH) (EN) from Cullen Penalties Cole (interference) – Overly Aggressive (knocks over MacDonald in the Penguins zone anticipating a pass […]
Flyer fans were all charged up for this game. Then their team took a major whooping. First let’s stop by Broad Street hockey, and see what they are up to. Sick burn out of the gate. Crosby makes it 1-0. #herecometheflyers Seems like something a misogynist would say in our opinion. The replies to […]
How is no one talking about this more? A brief summary of what happened. With the game well in hand, Wayne Simmonds skates by the Penguins net and uses his stick to slash the neck of Matt Murray. Extremely dangerous play: via GIPHY No penalty on the play, and Wayne Simmonds will probably not be […]
FLYERS (39-25-13) at PENGUINS (45-25-8) 5:00 PM EST – ROOT Sports CONSOL Energy Center – Pittsburgh, PA Getting hot at the “right time” is one thing, but the Pens have looked almost unbeatable during their current five game winning streak, and that sentiment could be extended to most of the 11 games won in their […]
Pens 5 Islanders 0 Record: 45-25-8, 98 pts Goals Sundqvist (1) (SH) unassisted Hornqvist (20) (PP) from Schultz, Crosby Cullen (14) from Kuhnhackl, Fehr Kessel (26) (PP) from Letang Kuhnhackl (5) from Cullen, Schultz Penalties Crosby (slashing) – Bad (loses Nielsen entering the Penguins zone for a semi-breakaway and gives him a slash across the […]
Three months ago, hell maybe even three weeks ago, this didn’t seem like a realistic outcome. But the Penguins are going back to the dance for the 10th straight year. They dismantled the Islanders on their home ice 5-0. Matt Murray with his first career shutout. Phil Kessel scored again, Justin Schultz, Matt Cullen, Oscar […]
Ian Cole didn’t like Matt Martin’s hit on Justin Schultz. So he fought him. Give Cole credit for having the guts, and staying up but this didn’t go well. The Ref’s face says it all:
And things were going so well. We’ve been down this road before. Hopefully Marc-Andre Fleury can recover quickly. It looks like it will be the Matt Murray experience until then.
PENGUINS (44-25-8) at ISLANDERS (42-25-9) 1:00 PM EST – ROOT Sports Barclays Center – Brooklyn, New York You know things are going your way when the only topics up for debate are who really deserved team MVP, and what to do with the lines next month when a guy returns from injury.
