RECAP: Game 44. No Metro. Pens again struggle against divisional opponent.

View image | gettyimages.com So, where do you draw the line? What is truthfully panic, and what is just overreacting? Yes, we keep saying it is January and the Penguins are injured and you can’t put too much stock into what is occurring. But to say there isn’t some concern would be lying. The Penguins are 6-8 against their own division. To get to Conference Finals, they’ll...

The Pens got some goals from unusual sources, like Goc and Paul Martin Powerball, and Chris Kunitz finally made an appearance. Hoping to see more from him. We’ll have more about this tomorrow, but Ryan Suter got away with this vicious elbow on...

RECAP: Game 37. Happy New Year

2014 was a disaster. What a circus 2015 will be. Thanks for spending whatever part of your days in 2014 here, and looking forward to what 2015 will bring. The last game of 2014 wasn’t remarkable in anyway. But here is a recap anyway. – Carolina scored first, and if it wasn’t for them sucking, they probably should have led by multi-goals. – Ryan Mill didn’t announce Chris...

What's My Age Again? Dupuis, Kunitz, and Scuderi by @PandaPSU

Every player goes through it. They have extremely productive careers and then they hit a certain age where they begin to lose their abilities. It starts slowly at first. Maybe they can't skate as quickly as they did. Maybe their wrist shots are a little less fast. Maybe they just lose a bit of their vision to create plays or finish them. Once this starts, it usually creates an avalanche...
