First Round Preview: Rangers vs. Penguins

It’s hard to believe that perhaps just 5 years ago, the Rangers would ever be favored against a Crosby-led Penguins team, but here we are. The Penguins limped to the finish line losing 9 of their last 13 games, making the playoffs in the final day against a tanking Buffalo Sabres team and finishing the season at 43-27-12, good for 98 points. A year after the Rangers eliminated...

Penguins Recall Harrington and Dumoulin for Playoffs

No team in the NHL is more thrilled that the salary cap is gone for the playoffs than the Pittsburgh Penguins. After being forced to play with five defensemen for several games at the end of the season due to injuries to Kris Letang, Christian Ehrhoff and Derrick Pouliot, Pittsburgh’s defense was down to Paul Martin, Ian Cole, Rob Scuderi, Ben Lovejoy and Taylor Chorney. Chorney...

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...
