PLAYOFF GAMEDAY: Hangin’ by a moment

In “Armageddon,” Liv Tyler makes Bruce Willis promise that he will come back from his space mission to blow up an asteroid and save humanity. Five hours later, after Jerry Bruckheimer went through six orgasms, Bruce Willis had to explain to Liv Tyler via video conference that he would have to stay behind and blow […]


Thoughts: ECF Game 6 – Pens Find a Way to Head Back to Pittsburgh for Game 7.

Murray Christmas and see you Thursday Night

In Matt Murray’s first playoff start he walked into MSG and gave the Penguins the lead in what was a close series to that point. In round two he looked the President’s Trophy winning Capitals and the eye and pooped in their face. He then was benched, stunningly, after one game where the goals against […]


PLAYOFF GAMEDAY: It’s do-or-die time tonight in Tampa.

Game 6: PENGUINS (2-3) AT LIGHTNING (3-2) Eastern Conference Final 8:00 PM EST – NBCSN Amalie Arena – Tampa Florida If you’re watching the Penguins in a vacuum, then you may be saying to yourself, “If the Penguins lose tonight it will be their 7th defeat versus a lower seed since 2009.”

Mike Sullivan’s curious Game 5

Mike Sullivan has made all the right moves. Every which way. Until Sunday night. 1. He played Marc-Andre Fleury. Even though Matt Murray had almost little to no fault in Game 4. 2. He rode with the lifeless Beau Bennett for some unknown reason. This wasn’t the Mike Sullivan we’ve seen for the last four months. […]


PLAYOFF GAMEDAY: Get your pitchforks ready! Pens head home for Game 5.

Game 5: LIGHTNING (2-2) at PENGUINS (2-2) Eastern Conference Final 8:00 PM EST – NBCSN CONSOL Energy Center – Pittsburgh, PA The Lightning needed a quick start in Game 4. A large portion of their gameplan was counting on the Penguins to beat themselves at some point –they needed that to start showing some dividends. […]


Penguins Take Full Control of Series in Dominant Game 3 Win

The Pittsburgh Penguins are absolutely burying the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference finals. After a brief hiccup in the first two periods of game one, the last 140 minutes of hockey in this series has been under the control of the Penguins in a way we’ve yet to see through the first two series. The […]


Thoughts: ECF Game 3 – Kessel and the Pens Overwhelm Lightning for 2-1 Series Lead.

Pens 4  Lightning 2 Series: Pens lead 2-1. Goals Hagelin (5) from Kessel Kessel (7) from Bonino, Hagelin Crosby (5) (PP) from Malkin, Schultz Kunitz (2) unassisted Penalties Hornqvist (slashing) – Overly Aggressive (puts a one-handed slash on Callahan’s right hand for a slashing call…technically a penalty, but a very weak/surprising call compared to everything […]

Looks like Shawn Michaels might be coming to Game 5

Imagine you had a time machine. And you took that time machine back to January 25th. Then you could tell yourself that the Penguins could score a goal in game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals and HBK music would play in CEC. The thought of the ShowStopper himself and Phil Kessel being in a non-photoshopped picture […]

@ThePghCheeze founded the HBK line

The HBK line is blowing up the Internet. And it is only right that @ThePghCheeze be credited with the naming rights. The Penguins should give him free tickets in our opinion. Unlike gravity challenged Pittsburgh radio hosts who try to claim creation, it was @ThePghCheeze who first mentioned it on March 29. Thanks to Twitter’s advanced […]


Milbury’s Comments Reflective of NHL Leadership as a Whole

Last night during game two between the San Jose Sharks and the St. Louis Blues, Mike Milbury caused some  waves when he made the following comments on slashing/boarding from star players: “If you’re going to slash him, break a bone. If you’re going to hit him from behind, give him a slight concussion.” — Mike Milbury. […]


PLAYOFF GAMEDAY: Pens head to Tampa, look to raise the bar in Game 3.

Game 3: PENGUINS (1-1) at LIGHTNING (1-1) Eastern Conference Final 8:00 PM EST – NBCSN Amalie Arena – Tampa, Florida I should probably begin by mentioning that I didn’t intend to start a national conspiracy over Matt Murray’s glove. While it did appear that the puck went through his glove, as someone who employs geometry at […]


Penguins Drive Wedge Into Tampa Defensive Posture in Game 2 Win

The Penguins played game one of the eastern conference final against the Lightning like a team that was content to allow Tampa Bay to dictate where and how the hockey game would be played. Within mere seconds of game two, it was evident that would not be the case. Tampa’s three man defensive approach at […]
