RECAP: Game 32. Pens win a street fight 3-1

Usually Panther-Penguin games are mundane. Not this one. This game was downright hateful. Couple of reasons for that: 1. Willie Mitchell, the Panthers’ captain for some reason, hates Evgeni Malkin. This happened a long time ago, and Mitchell probably didn’t forget: Mitchell and Malkin had a little convo early in this game, and it […]

What the Hell Happened: Fleury shines in 3-1 win

The Penguins and Panthers really don’t like each other. Good thing they get to play again in Florida on Tuesday night.

The Penguins made a big roster move this morning and called up Derrick Pouliot. Some good thoughts on this by Ryan Wilson over at [ HockeyBuzz ]. Now we have seen defensemen get called up before only to not play, specifically Scott Harrington, but it is still very interesting to see the team physically call […]


RECAP: GAME 31. Pens win 1-0 in OT. Often, casual fans of hockey question why it is necessary to watch a whole NHL season. And usually the answer is because there isn’t anything else to do. But games like Game 31 against the Avs are why watching the season matters. Even though the game was a scoreless tie for 60-plus minutes, we saw some […]

NHL: Anaheim Ducks at Pittsburgh Penguins

Blake Comeau is good again

It wasn’t exactly a trending topic when the Penguins signed Blake Comeau to a one-year contract on the first day of free agency this past July.  Comeau, who had only netted 11 goals in parts of the last two seasons, was at best seen as a guy who would primarily be filling a role in the bottom-six.  His name not being Tanner Glass or Deryk […]
