JEFF ZATKOFF RUMORS & GOSSIP

It not only was the Penguins goaltender’s NHL debut, but he also flopped in it. Pressed into duty as the team’s backup to Marc-Andre Fleury last season after a blood-clot issue felled Tomas Vokoun, Zatkoff started the fourth...

Pens prep for long road trip

You could make the argument that the Penguins are the hottest team in the league right now. Banged up and without many of it’s normal starters, the Pens are a rag-tag combination of relatively untested young prospects, AHL call-ups, and bottom six role players.  Despite this, Captain Sidney Crosby has managed to lead the Penguins to six straight wins and 11 in 12 games. It’s...

For Penguins' Zatkoff, disappointing debut

Jeff Zatkoff put it on himself Friday night. “That's the difference and I've got to be better” he said after making 24 saves in the Penguins' 6-3 loss to the Panthers at BB&T Center.
