Well, the Penguins won. On one hand, getting four points in a back-to-back situation is solid. On the other, no team seems to start as fast, then flame out quite like the Penguins. Maybe they were tired because of the back-to-back, maybe they weren’t, maybe maybe maybe maybe blah blah blah. In our opinion, blowing […]
Pittsburgh Penguins (31-15-8) at Ottawa Senators (21-22-9) 7:30 PM – ROOT Sports, TSN Canadian Tire Centre, Kanata, Ontario
A lot of good things about this game. Blake Comeau being back on the ice is huge, and it didn’t take long for everyone to see that. None of the Pens’ four lines looked outmatched, and that’s good, too. The big asterisk on this game is the Red Wings had Jimmy Howard’s stunt double in […]
It is amazing what happens when a team has players playing in the roles they should be. The Penguins got Blake Comeau back, and actually had some semblance of a top six. Just to prove a point the second line scored on their first shift, and overall they got two goals in the first period. […]
Detroit Red Wings (31-12-9) at Pittsburgh Penguins (30-15-8) 8:00 PM – NBCSN CONSOL Energy Center – Pittsburgh, PA
I haven’t done a post in the first person on the Internet in literally eight years. Using “I” in any post is repulsive to me. Is this how DownGoesBrown feels? Anyways, some things.
Blake Comeau is about four seconds from returning, so today the Pens decided to part ways with Mark Arcobello. Arcobello played ten games in a Penguin uniform after being picked up off of waivers from Nashville less than a month ago. A good possession player who hadn’t yet found a way to translate that into tangible results, Arcobello […]
This just broke via the Trib: Peart oversaw revenue generating departments of the team that included business partnerships, corporate sales, premium seating, ticket sales, broadcasting, and concession and merchandise sales strategy. With season ticket packages set to be up for renewal in March seems like a big loss for the Penguins. No word yet on who […]
This a column by Mike Colligan that appears every Monday morning on The Pensblog. You can find more of Mike’s work at his site, ColliganHockey.com. (1) Would Evander Kane have fit with Evgeni Malkin? Last Thursday, I wrote an article at The Hockey Writers on Jim Rutherford and Evander Kane. I wanted to look at how Rutherford […]
When the Pens visited Edmonton and Calgary, it felt like an event. Those teams and cities were pumped to welcome Crosby. Vancouver, meanwhile, really wanted nothing to do with the Crosby and the Pens, and it showed. Pens weren’t ready for it from the opening faceoff.
Like it or not, the Penguins can’t consistently beat good teams. No one has any evidence to prove otherwise. Save your excuses of back-to-back games or the refs not gving the Pens a call. That doesn’t matter. All that matters is that every time in the last two months when the Penguins have had a game that […]
