See You at the Crossroads. Pittsburgh Penguins 2014-2015 Season Preview. Part 2 – The Coaches

There has probably been 500 Bylsma articles written on the Internet since Bylsma was let go. And honestly, this is probably the last time we even want to talk about it. Bylsma did well here, but he mangled a potential dynasty. Like it or not, that is what happened.  Get to your game, grind people down. Gone Girl. When the puck drops on Thursday, it will be the first time since...

3 Players to Watch at Penguins Training Camp

by @HunterHodies The Pittsburgh Penguins training camp is about to begin and that means more Penguins hockey. This was an offseason unlike any other since GM Ray Shero and head coach Dan Byslma were fired. They also lost a ton of players from last season but replaced them with just as good or even better players. What should we watch at Penguins training camp? Let’s take a look...

Recap: Preseason Game 4 vs. Minnesota

Preseason is slowly turning into “Where the hell is Evgeni Malkin?” If no one sees him on the ice by next weekend, we’ve got some problems. We recapped this game. Pens lost 4-1. Not a great time. FIRST PERIOD First period was basically a Seth Rogen movie, except it had a plot. If you’re like us, you may have missed some of the action if you decided to watch a bug make...

Free Agency Thoughts Part I: Penguins Succeed in Adding Cheap Depth

By: Meesh Shanmugam (@HockeyMeesh) The start of free agency was busy for all Penguins, both old and new. The Pens so far have added five players, retained two, and waved goodbye to eight others with some eye-opening and jaw-dropping contracts. Here are some thoughts on the additions and re-signings. Part II will be a look at the departures. Free Agent Signings Christian Ehrhoff from...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Wednesday

Just a few things that caught my eye: Six-foot-six isn't tall if you're always on your knees. Stand up, Anders Lindback -- STAND UP! They already know about that glove hand of yours. Don't give them anything else! Sidney Crosby has discovered it's tick season. Brandon Dubinsky just latches on between the shoulder blades and drains the energy right out of a guy. ...

Three Observations Heading Into Game 82 Between the Penguins and Senators

Rest Some of the Best? The Pittsburgh Penguins rested defenseman Brooks Orpik and forward Chris Kunitz in yesterday’s overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. Both players are day-to-day and do not have long term injuries, according to Dan Bylsma. Will Bylsma rest some more players today? It is a possibility, especially since Pittsburgh has nine defensemen on their roster, which...

something something blood and ball sweat

A child joins the Penguins for the anthems from a team called the Butler Valley Dawgs, and all seems relatively right with the world, i.e. we are not playing the Flyers.  Also James Neal and Chris Kunitz are back with us.  And Zatkoff is in net.  Somehow we feel oddly calm.

This is an opportunity to feel normal again. Oddly it seems as though we are back in the appropriate iteration of our Universe.  Win or lose, this one counts. LEAST SIGNIFICANT Ryan Malone went to hit Bortuzzo early and Bortuzzo turned away and put himself in a dangerous situation.  Nothing bad happened but it's still 2 minutes for boarding.  We don't miss you, Ryan.  Not...

QUICK CAP: Penguins run the train on Dallas ☆

  This was just a good time. We were hoping for a closer, more entertaining game with Dallas, but we’re not complaining. Pens needed this kind of runaway game. Can’t say anything bad about Zatkoff, either. Made the saves he had to make. OUR THREE STARS 3. Jeff Zatkoff – Plus-30 saves: That’s a lot. 1 goal: That’s not a lot. 2.

When Mike Milbury, Pierre McGuire, and Eddie Olczyk all start making sense, you’ve entered the Twilight Zone. And you want to talk about the Twilight Zone?
