Pens fall 6-1 to the Rangers on Wednesday
Sorry for the quick post. I've got to head back to PNC Park this morning to close out the Pirates homestand. Since I missed Wednesday's tilt, I'd like to ask you, the readers, what went wrong.
Feel free to list the top three reasons why the Penguins lost at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.

Going into trade deadline day today you would be hard pressed to find a deeper roster than that of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Their first two lines could fill an All-Star team. Penguins GM Ray Shero added yet another player to the Penguins and once again did it without losing a roster player only a conditional 6th or 7th round pick.
30 year old, 5’11 left wing, Jussi Jokinen...
Once in a while a player will switch jersey numbers. This is usually done to accommodate new arrivals to the team. One such instance is Penguins left-winger Tanner Glass, who wore the number 10 until Pittsburgh acquired Brenden Morrow. Morrow was number 10 on the Dallas Stars, so Glass decided he would switch to number 15 to open up the jersey number so Morrow could wear it.
On Wednesday night the Pittsburgh Penguins struggled mightily during their game against the New York Rangers. Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was clearly frustrated with the lack of help he was getting and when he went to slam his stick against the boards, the stick actually got caught between the boards and the glass. This obviously made him even more upset because he had...
All good things eventually come to an end. In the case of the Pittsburgh Penguins, their winning streak failed to reach 16 games as the Buffalo Sabres won at home by a score of 4-1.
Now that their streak is officially a thing of the past, it's time to look back and marvel at what the Penguins were able to accomplish.
Hockey analysts and fans will surely debate which...
The Pittsburgh Penguins won games when Paul Martin and Kris Letang went down with injuries. They slugged through close battles when Evgeni Malkin was out, and they found a way to shutout back to back opponents without the help of Marc-Andre Fleury.But in their first full game without Sidney Crosby, the Penguins came out flat and couldn't come back from a three goal deficit.The...
Rangers (18-15-3, 6-9-1 Road) at Pens (28-10, 15-5 Home), Consol, 7:00 pm ET
So the Penguins came out as flat as a pancake Wednesday. The penalty kill surrendered three goals in four New York opportunities. Evgeni Malkin again went goal-less and has six goals in 25 games. Kris Letang and Paul Martin sat.
If that wasnât bad enough, rumors floated Thursday that Sidney...
As if the Pittsburgh Penguins needed another way to win games. Today the Penguins have acquired Carolina Hurricanes shootout specialist Jussi Jokinen for a conditional draft pick. As part of the deal, the Hurricanes will most likely retain some of Jokinen’s salary. If they didn’t have to, the Penguins would have likely just claimed [...]
It simply may be a coincidence that the Pittsburgh Penguins have dropped both games without injured captain Sidney Crosby following their impressive 15-game winning streak.
The New York Rangers, meanwhile, hope it's more than just happenstance that they played so well with their newest additions.
