RECAP: Game 48. Disarray in D.C.

Sometimes there is no silver lining. Sometimes there is just a giant mess. Sometimes you just get your ass kicked. The Penguins waltzed into Washington fresh off a nice win against Winnipeg. They leave Washington in maybe their worst state yet. The only word that we can think of to describe this game is this: disarray. By the end of the game, the Penguins were jumping on people...

What the Hell Happened: Penguins get throttled by Caps 4-0.

Wow. The Penguins haven’t scored a goal against the Washington Capitals all season. They have only two wins against the Metro division in two months. While it isn’t time to hit the panic button, the Penguins comfort level in the Metro division isn’t what it used to be. They are now only three points ahead of the Caps. If you had to know one thing about this game, just know...

What The Hell Happened: Penguins gut out victory without Crosby and Malkin

A few years ago when Kris Letang got knocked out of a game against Dallas with a concussion, it stopped his great season in its tracks. Maybe, after getting knocked out of last Tuesday’s game against the Flyers the universe reset Letang. Probably not, but holy **** Kris Letang had 5 assists in this game, and that is remarkable. Letang helped on goals by Nick Spaling, Steve Downie...

Should the Pens take a chance on The King of Leadership?

So look who is on waivers, Mike Richards. [ ESPN ] Richard’s contract is completely insane. Richards, who turns 30 next month, has five more years after this season on a deal which carries a $5.75 million cap hit. His deal pays him $7 million this season, $6 million next season, then $5.5 million in 2016-17, $4.5 million in 2017-18, and $3 million each of the last two years. So...

What The Hell Happened: Bobby Lu outduels Marc-Andre Fleury for extra point

View image | gettyimages.com This was one hell of a game. The Penguins fell behind 3-1 in the third period in this game, and then battled back to tie it at three late. It was a well deserved point for the Penguins because they didn’t play horrible, especially considering they were without Brandon Sutter and Steve Downie.

What The Hell Happened: Pens beat Lightning in what could be first of many matchups

RECAP: GAME 29. Welcome back, Columbus.

The Pens have a new rival. It was born in the playoffs last season thanks to the new alignment and playoff structure, and it’s exactly what the system is designed to breed. It is pretty much impossible to get up for every single game in an 82-game season, so these games born in bad blood are what it’s all about. This turned out to be a great game. And that was with both teams...

This Week in Flyers History: Week ending December 7

On December 2, 1963, 51 years ago, twin boys were born in Viking, Alberta Canada. This would normally not strike anyone as a big deal or very newsworthy. However, with a hockey lineage attributed to the last name of Sutter, it was the arrival of two more boys to add into the pipeline headed to the NHL. Rich and Ron - the youngest of six boys - would later don the orange and black...
