What The Hell Happened: Pens blow 3-0 lead, but win anyway.

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 […]


RECAP: GAME 54. Pens win 4-1

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 […]

What the Hell Happened: Pens dismantle Wings with strong first period

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. […]


Pens Waive Mark Arcobello

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 […]

Penguins Vice President of Sales resigns

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 […]


RECAP: Game 53. Not ready for primetime.

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.

What the Hell Happened: Pens can’t pass the test.

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 […]
