Season Preview: Beau Bennett – Big

Beau Bennett as a Tom Hanks movie This is where we decided to use Beau Bennett. It makes all the sense in the world. A kid in an adult’s world. The only other option is if Tom Hanks was in a movie called “The Man Made of Glass.” Fast Fact: Harrison Ford turned down the lead role in “Big.” Last Season Recap Beau Bennett reached a new career high in games played: 49...

Season Preview: Rob Scuderi – Philadelphia

What You Missed: Pens’ B Squad can’t score goals

Woof. You can chalk it up to these jobbers trying to show they can play in a system, which, honestly, is the only way they’re gonna make this year’s Penguins roster. It’s a battle for the fourth line. The jobbers couldn’t find the net in Columbus, the A Squad looked like a villain from The Blacklist against Carolina, and then the jobbers couldn’t find the net again tonight...

PRESEASON GAMEDAY 3: Pens at Detroit

It’s hard not to read too much into preseason games. The Pens toasted the Canes 7-3 Tuesday night in Pittsburgh. Kessel and Crosby looked sharp, the young guys did some stuff, even Gonch got in on the scoring. I can’t recall the last time we were all collectively invested in a preseason game and overwhelmingly excited about the result. On the flip side, even if the Canes brought...

PRESEASON GAMEDAY 2: Carolina Hurricanes at Pittsburgh Penguins

I was sitting at a bar last evening, waiting for my bacon pretzel club to be complete so I could take it home and devour it as quickly as possible, when a man became audibly distraught over the fact that the Penguins preseason game at Columbus would not be televised.

Leaked: Penguins’ internal “concussion spotter” hopefuls

The NHL announced that they will be putting “concussion spotters” at every NHL game this season.  From Adam Gretz at CBS: Their job will be to make sure players that are noticeably shaken up after a hit are taken to the locker room for further evaluation. Sounds pretty easy. One thing not reported is that the Penguins will be hiring someone to fill the position. Industry insiders...

Pittsburgh Penguins Sign Beau Bennett and Dominik Simon

(Peter Diana/Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) The 2015-16 Penguins are slowly but surely coming back together as restricted free agent Beau Bennett agreed to a one-year deal worth $800,000. That salary is actually lower than the $900,000 he earned in his entry-level contract. Life in the NHL hasn’t been easy for the 23-year-old as he has only played in 96 NHL games despite being with...

Penguins sign forward Bennett, rookie Simon to deals

PITTSBURGH (AP) Beau Bennett is sticking in Pittsburgh. The Penguins signed the restricted free-agent forward to a one-year, $800,000 deal Wednesday. Bennett had four goals and eight assists in 49 games last season for the Penguins, but the 23-year-old has struggled to stay healthy or play with any real consistency during his brief career. He played 26 games during his rookie season...

RECAP: Game 78. All of a sudden, things are getting serious. Pens lose.

There’s really nothing to say right now. It’s just hard to tell which Penguins team is gonna show up on a given night…and what kind of effort is gonna be seen. We’re at the point of the season now where dissecting every game and analyzing **** goes out the window. If the Pens don’t know what they’re all about yet, they’re doomed. Here’s what the standings look like...

RECAP: Game 77. Flyers cost themselves points on Mcdavid lottery. Defeat Penguins.

Who is more confused, people that watch the Penguins or Bruce Jenner’s tailor? After a weekend of sneaking out two wins, there was some minor hope. And now playing the Flyers should’ve gotten everyone up. Especially after the fiasco that ensued after Rinaldo ran Letang way back when. Oh, and it’s the Flyers. Whoops. Against a Flyers team that is not making the playoffs, the...

RECAP: Game 76. Penguins survive unlimited penalty kill, win in shootout.

In the wake of the Letang injury, the Pens came into this game with a handicap. They only had five defensemen dressed and Beau Bennett was dressed. The Sharks are a really stupid team as a whole and should be disbanded. If this weekend proved anything, it is that the Penguins need Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin together. There is always a lot of comparing the two, but their games...

The Pens are in trouble. We’re not gonna be rah-rah, the Pens can do anything they set their mind to. With Malkin and Hornqvist out, this is the perfect time for the Pens to see who can step up and make plays. The answer is: NO ONE. How much better would you feel if Max Lapierre or even Beau Bennett scored a goal or even made a play during this stretch? It would be a sign of life...

Are the Penguins Primed for a Collapse?

It was a pretty goal. Especially by recent black-and-gold standards. Beau Bennett cruised into the slot, gathered up a loose puck, and slipped it through the goalie’s five-hole. Problem is, it was Marc-Andre Fleury’s five-hole. Bennett’s wrong-way play seems to epitomize the plight of the Penguins, who’ve lost four straight. A team built to score goals suddenly can’t buy...
