Penguins Beef Up

Back in 1984 Wendy’s fast-food restaurant struck advertising gold with the catchphrase, “Where’s the beef?” The clever lament could apply to our recent Penguins squads, too. According to James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail the Pens—with an average weight of 199.6 pounds—were the 25th heaviest team in the NHL to start the 2014-15 season.

Youth movement coming in Pittsburgh?

Offseason Primer by @BrianK_PI

With the way the Pittsburgh Penguins limped to the finish line, going 4-9-2 over their last 15 games and clinching a playoff berth on the last day of the regular season, the fact that they were knocked out of the playoffs by the Presidents' Trophy winning New York Rangers in five games should have come as little of a surprise.

Penguins Fall Short in Game 5

I was hoping against hope our Penguins would win last night’s Game 5 for goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. No one deserved a victory more than “Flower.” The willowy native of La belle province made 36 saves in a courageous performance that lit up the Madison Square Garden ice. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. At 10:52 of overtime the Rangers Carl Hagelin curled off the end-boards with...
