Geneve-Servette, Salavat Yulaev Ufa Scoreless in Spengler Cup Finals

Geneve-Servette believed they had the first goal of the contest just three minutes in. Taylor Pyatt, one of the best players in the entire Spengler Cup, rushed in and took a quick wrister on Leland Irving, a goal that appeared to make it’s way in. However, Daniel Rubin of GSHC was knocked into Irving and the whistle was blown dead before the puck was seen to cross over the line...

Pyatt Brothers Play Big Role as GSHC Leads Ufa 3-0 in Opening Period

The first goal of the entire tournament was scored less then five minutes into the very first period. Originally, former Montreal Canadiens’ forward Tom Pyatt’s wrist shot from the corner was saved by the pad of Vladimir Sohatskiy, but Timothy Kast managed to pick up the rebound and fired it home to make it 1-0 GSHC early in the contest. With six minutes remaining in the first...

RECAP: Game 73. Kings beat Penguins 3-2 ☆

Right now the Penguins are like that family member of yours who’s in a dark place, that one person who everyone knows is headed for disaster, but no one talks about it because they don’t want to look like a dick. Some days he or she looks great, but other times you get a true look into the hell that is coming. You’re waiting for the phone call announcing a DUI, drug overdose...

Fourth line depth a critical key to success for the Rangers

Photo: Frank Franklin II AP One of the many issues the Rangers have dealt with in the past is depth, specifically on the fourth line. The inconsistency is what led previous coach John Tortorella to play the line just five minutes a night (much to the chagrin of the fans). Last year saw endless combinations of Taylor Pyatt, Darroll Powe, Arron Asham, Derek Dorsett, or –in the playoffs–...

RECAP: Game 72. Penguins lose 3-2 to Phoenix. ☆

A loss to the Coyotes with about $21.75 million worth of players sitting in the press box due to injury isn’t going to derail the Penguins’ season. But what happened after the game cannot be ignored. The Penguins’ “veterans” voiced some major concerns in a closed-door meeting and in the media, even though the Penguins’ veterans’ play is mostly to blame for the Penguins...

Why not Jayson Megna over Taylor Pyatt by @MadChad412

There is a paradox that most of us face in our lives and hockey is no different. You need experience to get the full-time job for your career but you have to get the job to have that experience. The Pittsburgh Penguins have shown this to be true at the NHL level as their head coach Dan Bylsma and the rest of the organization haven't been too kind to their young players that they...

Well at least no one got hurt.  In some adverse weather conditions the Hawks were able to find a way, the Penguins were not.  When it was done, the Hawks won 5-1.    Again, the concern is the Penguins bottom lines. The third and fourth lines got outclassed by their counterparts from the Windy city. Every player on the third and fourth lines was at least a...

Notes & Lines: Back At It

  Hey, remember the NHL? It's back! (Sadly, not in Pog form...) There's no Carey Price for Montreal, as he'll be out for the next couple of games with a lower body injury. That means Peter Budaj will be in net for the Habs. Marc-Andre Fleury will start for Pittsburgh.  Taylor Pyatt and Joe Vitale will be back in the line-up tonight. Plus, the Pens' website has...

We can’t be the only ones who have noticed the Penguins’ offensive formula that has formed over the past month or so. While the team has been ravaged with injuries, the top two lines have carried the load big-time. But even if with a full, healthy roster, barring a trade, there’s still zero to no hope for the Pens’ bottom six. We looked at the Pens’ stats from the last...
