Earlier last week Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Deryk Engelland and the Toronto Maple Leafs Colton Orr threw down their gloves in what was the best fight of this young hockey season. For those who did not see it take a gander. It was one for the ages. In between periods Deryk Engelland was interviewed and this is what his black eye looked like four days later. I thought that I...

Plug ‘N’ Play Penguins Too Predictable?

For the past couple of seasons I’ve watched with increasing alarm as the Penguins have downsized (and defanged) in order to better fit Dan Bylsma’s “damn-the-torpedoes, full-steam-ahead” system. It’s no secret that Bylsma’s approach is predicated on wearing the other team down with a relentless attack. While speed certainly is an asset in today’s up-tempo NHL, it can’t...

Penguins 2, Senators 1 (SO)

OTTAWA, Ontario -- Evgeni Malkin's shootout goal was the difference as the Pittsburgh Penguins ended their two-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators Sunday at Scotiabank Place. Senators goalie Craig Anderson, who had allowed three goals in nine periods leading up to the shootout, couldn't make a save in the tie-breaking procedure, as James Neal...

Penguins beat Ottawa in shootout

OTTAWA, Ontario -- The offensively dynamic Pittsburgh Penguins stopped their losing skid at two by playing a stellar defensive game Sunday. And they did so with a depleted blue line. Marc-Andre Fleury matched Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson save-for-save through 65 minutes -- then made one more stop than his opposite number in the shootout -- as the Penguins left Scotiabank...

Playing on the road for the fourth time in its first five...

Jets spoil Crosby's debut in Winnipeg

After going up 2-0 in the first period, the Penguins allowed four straight goals, including three in the second period, as the Winnipeg Jets skated away with a 4-2 victory. The game reflected the same issues the Penguins...

The Most Meaningless Stats in Hockey (and Sports)

Statistics in sports are a huge deal. They give us information on key metrics when assessing a player's worth, value, production, etc. They basically serve as averages that help compare a certain player against the rest of the league or specifically another player. But there is a stat category that gives us the red ass.  It's a stat that journalists and broadcast crews...
