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

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...

Penguins This and That by @ChicksDigHockey

It's been three days since we had a Penguins game. Three days off is a long time for a hockey team dealing with injuries and illness. Three days is a nice amount of time to integrate a new winger into your system. Three days without hockey has given me time to get caught up on my reading. Here are some thoughts I've had as a result: - I was excited for the David Perron signing...
