What the hell happened: Pens fall on the Isle

Looks like Cal Clutterbuck had it right. The Isles completed the sweep Saturday night and everyone wants to die. But life will go on. People will point the finger at Steve Downie for that bizarre penalty he took in the third period, but the game is roughly 60 minutes long. Downie did what everyone reading this would’ve wanted to do, and it was great. The Islanders blow. These...

Let’s Not Rush the Beau Bennett Hysteria

The Pittsburgh Penguins downed the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday night by a score of 4-0. The Penguins third line, most recently comprised of Beau Bennett, Brandon Sutter, and Steve Downie really carried the load for the team, netting the first three goals of the game to essentially bury the Canadiens within the first 25 minutes, before […] The post Let’s Not Rush the Beau Bennett...

What the hell happened: Penguins perfect-plex Habs

It isn’t often where the Penguins play a game where you cannot find one thing wrong. But Tuesday night in Montreal was the night. The Penguins dominated from start to finish, and Marc-Andre Fleury pitched another shutout. The Penguins won 4-0. What mattered - The third line. Three goals by the Penguins third line.

Dustin Byfuglien's Dirty Hit on Steve Downie following Goal

First, Steve Downie is no saint; he'd probably tell you that. But check out this dirty, unnecessary, bush league hit that Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien put on Downie. This is unacceptable. After the play is over, I believe that Downie has the expectation to not be slambed into the end boards. I don't think that's being unreasonable, right? The play is over...

Steve Downie scores, is shoved into the boards by Dustin Byfuglien

Dustin Byfuglien should expect a call from the NHL’s Department of Player Safety. After Steve Downie tallied a goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Byfuglien checked him awkwardly into the boards. As you might expect, Downie wasn’t too happy and tried to jump Big Buff. The punishment during the game was a fitting example of more poor officiating as the two men each received two...

The 5 Stages of Steve Downie by @PandaPSU

Downie's slewfoot on Sidney Crosby in 2010. (Screengrab via the past four years, the Penguins recipe for success has been a little bit flawed. They clearly had enough talent to make the postseason and be somewhat successful, but they have failed to reach their ultimate goal since 2009. Something was not working, and change needed to happen.

Rick Tocchet and Steve Downie Reunited in Pittsburgh by @ChicksDigHockey

Rick Tocchet knows all about being a bad ass. Search him on YouTube and you can find enough scrums to keep you occupied all day.  No one would ever accuse Tocchet of being a goon but he began his career mainly known as a fighter. He worked hard to hone his skills and became known as a power forward who also happened to take zero crap. He topped the 30-goal mark four straight years...

Pens ink Steve Downie to 1-year deal

Look, Steve Downie is crazy. But when dialed in he is a perfect bottom-6 guy. This is another move that makes the Penguins better. Rick Tocchet, now an assistant with the Penguins, turned Downie into a 20-goal in Tampa, and probably turned his career around. Risk: Downie is known to take terrible penalties, probably can get out of control. Reward: If deployed in the right situation...
