Penguins Stun Rangers 4-3

Take that, New York. In a gutsy effort that harkened back to their glory days, the Penguins overcame adversity—not to mention atrocious officiating—to beat the New York Rangers Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. With the pulse-pounding 4-3 victory, the Pens snapped a four-game postseason losing streak and evened the series at one game apiece. It was a night of heroics for...

RECAP: Game One. Rangers lead series 1-0.

Dark cloud: The Pens are three losses away from the season being over. Silver lining of the dark cloud: The Penguins played their strongest game in about a month. It has been a weird season, so when we say we feel some positive things about a playoff loss, it doesn’t feel that strange. The Penguins had some fight in them, the Rangers interfered with the rest. But the Rangers...

Would You Trade Brandon Sutter For Frans Nielsen? by @ChicksDigHockey

I am a Brandon Sutter fan. I’ll always love Crosby and Malkin but give me a good bottom six guy any day. I guess I’m just partial to the gritty blue collar player who adds character as well as skill.  Give me a role player like Sutter or Max Talbot or Mike Rupp any day! Role players are as essential to a team’s success as goal scorers are. They won’t appear as such on...

Why Not the Pittsburgh Penguins?

Marc-Andre Fleury has given this team a chance night after night and hopefully will continue to do so. (Elsa/Getty Images) By: Joe Guzy It took 82 games, but the Pittsburgh Penguins punched their ticket to the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. It took a win against the “nothing left to lose” Buffalo Sabres. It took wrap-around after wrap-around against the 6-foot-6-inch Anders Lindback...

RECAP: Game 82. Brandon Sutter and Marc-Andre Fleury save the season. Pens win 2-0.

Brandon Sutter is soft. He is probably one of the worst third-line centers in the NHL. But damn it all. He scored one goal, got hit in the face with a puck, got some stitches, and then came back and scored another. We’ve jobbed Sutter all year long. But he stepped up in the biggest game of the season. Nothing else you can say. But he wasn’t the number-one star. That was Marc...

RECAP: Game 75. Pens get some breathing room with a big win.

Malkin and Hornqvist were making their big return. The Pens were gonna have healthy forwards. Nope. Nice try. David Perron was a late scratch with a mysterious illness. And Kris Letang may be out for a while after getting rocked by Shane Doan. The Pens were going into this weekend kind of on shaky ground. Everyone is afraid to admit it, but the Pens were a couple losses away this...

GIF: Darren Helm spears Mike Smith in the junk

We’ve mocked Mike Smith a lot over the last few weeks. First, he jumped over a shot and allowed a bizarre goal. Next, he shot the puck off of Brandon Sutter and into his own net. What could possibly follow up those two incidents? How about a spear in the junk from Darren Helm? Smith has a reputation for diving, but it looks like Helm makes decent contact.

RECAP: Game 69. LOL. Pens get blitzed 5-1.

Some guy got taken out on a stretcher at Mario’s bar in the South Side this weekend because he drank too much during the St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Pittsburgh. He’s about the only other person who had a worse weekend than the Penguins. Sidney Crosby returned from his mysterious injury but didn’t do much. The rest of the Penguins didn’t really look interesting in...

Penguins Update: Sutter on the Rise

It’s been an up-and-down for the Penguins Brandon Sutter, to say the least. A streaky scorer by nature, the 26-year-old struggled mightily through the middle part of the season following a solid start. During a 31-game stretch from November 22 through early February, the Huntington, New York native was a minus-11 with a paltry four goals. A virtual revolving door of linemates didn’t...
