RECAP: Game 66. Undeserved fate. Pens fall in shootout despite badly out playing Sharks.

The Penguins deserved to win this game.  But, they didn’t.  There is no other way to look at it. In the third period, the Penguins came in waves.  Shift after shift.  The Penguins first and second lines threw everything they had at the Sharks.  It was easily one of the best games anyone has seen Sidney Crosby play in awhile. He tied the game on a wicked backhand and, from...

RECAP: Game 63. Penguins drop 3-1 decision to Avs

We should be used to this by now, and we are. Things happen off the ice, like trades, that get us all revved up, and then the Pens answer the excitement with a dud of a game. The Pens are a good team because they played like balls and yet were still in the game until late in the third period when Gabriel Landeskog did Derrick Pouliot’s taxes for him: It was the first game with...

What the Hell Happened: Malkin still on fire, Winnik gets an assist in big win

The final score was 5-3, but the only reason this game was close is because both teams were in the same arena at the same time. With the trade deadline looming on Monday, this game may have been our first look at what the Pens may be taking into the dance come April. And it didn’t look too bad. Yeah, it was against the limp Blue Jackets and David Clarkson’s ego, but it looks...

The #NHL Trade Deadline @PensInitiative Roundtable by @griffTHW

What do you consider to be the Pens' greatest need as the deadline approaches? Do they need to address more than one area for you to consider them a legitimate Cup contender?To me, bolstering the blue line should top Pittsburgh's agenda heading into the trade deadline.  The void created when Olli Maatta went down for the season created a hole that likely needs to be addressed...

RECAP: GAME 50. Things don’t look right.

People think the Pens can do whatever they want every game, and that just isn’t the case. That fact doesn’t really hit home until the Pens go against one of the best teams in the league and they get suffocated and almost die. Maybe it’s time to start looking at the Pens as an underdog against the big baddies of the league, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a great...

Penguins Recall Derrick Pouliot

With defenseman Christian Ehrhoff currently out of the lineup, the Penguins may be looking to see if young defenseman Derrick Pouliot can stay in the lineup for good. The team recalled their top prospect in Pouliot today and re-assigned forward Andrew Ebbett. Pouliot scores his first NHL goal earlier this year on his first shot in his NHL debut. With questions on the bottom pairing...

RECAP: Game 46. The Ghost of Rex Gildo.

NBCSN tried to bill this as a rivalry night, but they were a day late. It was a matchup of two of the elite teams in the league, and that was about it. PLOT TWIST: Penguins had key players injured. Again. Malkin and Letang were both MIA, and there was no Maatta and no Hornqvist. That guy above is the greatest. Watch this, and you’ll know why. Last game before the All-Star break...

What the Hell Happened: Valiant effort, but Pens fall in a shootout

With things being what they are, it is hard to find a ton of faults in this game. The Penguins got bad news before the game with both Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin out. After a slow start, the Penguins were able to push back with goals from the hapless Zac Sill, and Steve Downie. By the third period it was actually a semi-entertaining game with both teams trading chances. David Perron...
