That does not mean, however, that prospects like Kasperi Kapanen, Derrick Pouliot, and Oskar Sundqvist won't be given an opportunity to earn significant minutes.Depth proved to be an area of concern that the Penguins struggled with in this past season, and...

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...
