If you didn’t watch this game and just looked at the box score, you’d think this game was out of control. But that opposite is really true. This was a tough, nasty game and well coached from both sides. Winnipeg is the first team we’ve seen try to punch the Penguins in the mouth. And […]
This game felt like it was two weeks long. It had a little bit of everything. The Jets gave the Penguins all kinds of trouble, but the Penguins got some timely goaltending, and snuck out of Winnipeg with two points.

This is enjoyable. Norm MacDonald live tweeted the Pens game from the stands in Winnipeg. It was a mess. It isn’t clear why MacDonald was at the game, but we guess if he was in Winnipeg what else was he going to do? Also, no clue who Lamb is:
Steve Downie came out of the penalty box for six seconds. He scored. Then get got crushed by Dustin Byfuglien: Downie and Byfuglien got called for penalties on the play.

It was billed as the top offense vs. the stingiest defense. Going into the game, you had to be expecting a tight battle. The Pens winning a 1-0 or 2-1 game would be deemed a massive success. You want to win tight games against an elite defensive team, even if a blowout would be the […]
Pierre Lebrun with his first interesting nugget of the season. [ ESPN ] The Pens don’t have anything in the hopper now, but when the time is right, we’re told the plan is to try and add a top-six winger to play with Evgeni Malkin. Blake Comeau has done a nice job of late on Malkin’s line with Pascal […]
Thomas Greiss has started two games. Both have featured the Penguins going up in dominating fashion, and then falling off in the third period. The first game didn’t end well. This one did. Save about 10 minutes in the third period, and this was actually a completely dominating win for the Penguins. The Penguins power […]
