Gameday 75: A good day to go to a gun bash. Pens host Coyotes.

Arizona Coyotes (23-44-8) at Pittsburgh Penguins (40-23-11) 1:00 PM – ROOT Sports CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA There is really only one reason to be excited about this game, and that is the return of Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist. Malkin is the game changer on this team, and probably the only player who can miss a significant amount of time and not miss a beat upon...

Key Observations heading into Game 75 between the Penguins and Coyotes

By: Gemma Fagan (@gcfagan86) The Penguins have been struggling as of late; they have lost 6 out of their last 7 games and as the season is drawing to an end they are in need of a win badly.

Coyotes-Penguins Preview

The Pittsburgh Penguins are squandering a chance to improve their playoff positioning, bogged down by a sputtering offense. Evgeni Malkin's potential return could help them turn things around. Malkin hopes to be back on the ice Saturday when Pittsburgh hosts the lowly Arizona Coyotes. The Penguins (40-23-11) are 1-5-1 in their last seven games and were overrun in a 5-2 loss at Carolina...

RECAP: Game 74. What is the excuse this time? Pens get trounced 5-2

The Pens just look rough. We keep saying this ****, but it doesn’t really matter that Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist are out of the lineup. However, you have still built (or at least told everyone you’ve built) a solid team with solid players. It should be almost a guarantee that the Pens will smoke the lowly Hurricanes in late March. Instead…they got run out of the building...

#TBT Classic Mike Lange Calls by @kjcmalakai

Last Tuesday night, legendary broadcaster Mike Lange was honored by the Penguins for his 40 years of calling Penguins games.  This is perfect timing, because this serves as a distraction from the recent spotty play of the Penguins.

Key Observations heading into game 74 between Penguins and Hurricanes

  By Annie Shean (@JustPuckIt) The Penguins are coming off a 3-2 overtime loss against the St. Louis Blues Tuesday evening at home. Since the Penguins have only 11 healthy forwards the plan was to utilize Derrick Pouliott in an occasional forwards roll, however when defenseman Christian Ehrhoff was lost to injury 5:07 into the game that went out the window.

Blues credit Steve Ott’s fight for shifting momentum vs. Penguins

The Blues found themselves trailing by two during the second period in Pittsburgh. The Penguins tallied two goals in 17 seconds and the Blues looked ready to pack it in and coast through the remainder of the contest. Then something shifted the momentum and got the Blues back in the game. Was it an inspirational speech from Ken Hitchcock? A lucky bounce? No, it was a fight by Steve...

RECAP 73: A Blue, Blue, Blue, Blue Christmas. Pens fall in OT.

Take this one with a grain of salt, because having Evgeni Malkin in the lineup completely changes the dynamic of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Still. The Pens have now lost 10 of their last 16 at home. They’re 1-4-1 in their last six games. The problem lately had been slow starts, and it didn’t change here. And despite only registering three shots in the first, they were able to...
