Coming Full Circle on the Salary Cap by @BrianK_PI

When the lockout ended and the salary cap was implemented prior to the 2005-06 season, the Pittsburgh Penguins were in a very different place than they are right now. They were awful on the ice, having gone 22-46-14; "good" for 58 points and a second to last place finish in the NHL. Their team payroll of $23.1 million was well below the $39 million salary cap and not much...

Malkin a force in Penguins victory over Islanders

Sure, Evgeni Malkin’s teammates noticed the goal he scored. It was pretty tough to overlook. They saw how he set up Patric Hornqvist’s game-winning goal in the Penguins’ 3-1 victory against the New York Islanders Saturday night at Consol Energy Center just 55 seconds later, too. But for all his offensive magic on this night – and there was plenty of it – it was a defensive...

Snapshot: Pens stand up to Isles, win 3-1.

That awkward moment when people realize the Penguins are doing just fine without James Neal. It is early, but Patric Hornqvist is doing just fine in replacing James Neal. Against the Isles, he fired 12 shots , added the game winning goal, and game sealing empty net goal. He didn’t ruin any powerplays by taking a dumb penalty. He didn’t come unglued when someone hit him. Patric...

Let's All Just Take a Step Back by @kjcmalakai

Like most Penguins fans, I'm pretty excited about the hot start.  So far, the changes that we have been reading about for the better part of the summer are all that we could have hoped for and more.  Stretch passes are a thing of the past and defensemen (gasp) are allowed to carry the puck and join the play in the offensive zone.  The Penguins have scored eleven goals in two...
