Penguins Defense Holding Back Lethal Offense

The Pittsburgh Penguins hosted back-to-back games this weekend against the Calgary Flames and New York Rangers. Despite scoring 10 goals in those contests, they also gave up 10 and split the two games. While the defense is obviously struggling, it’s refreshing to see the offense kicking it into another gear. Returning Players Ignite Offense This offensive outburst was sparked by a nearly healthy Penguins lineup. Justin Schultz returned from a 53-game absence and notched a pair of assists over ...

Flames Beat Penguins – Snap 4-Game Skid

PITTSBURGH — Michael Frolik had the first of four second-period goals for Calgary, and the Flames held on to snap a season-long four-game skid with a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. Frolik, Austin Czarnik, Travis Hamonic and Sam Bennett scored during a mid-game 17-minute span for Calgary, which avenged a 9-1 loss to Pittsburgh in October during the teams’ other meeting this season. Back after serving a one-game suspension for swinging his stick at Philadelphia’s Michael Raffl, ...

Penguins Need to Trade Phil Kessel

As the most important part of the season commences, the Pittsburgh Penguins are 2-4-1 since returning from the All-Star break. They are hanging to the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference for dear life, and while they have been plagued by injury this season, there has been one constant in the Penguins’ struggles – Phil Kessel looks completely checked out. The time has finally come for the Penguins to trade Phil Kessel (Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports) Earlier in the season, I wrote a...

What Does a Healthy Penguins Lineup Look Like?

There is no better trade deadline acquisition the Pittsburgh Penguins could make before the Feb. 25 trade deadline as they gear up for a playoff run than getting Evgeni Malkin, Justin Schultz and Zach Aston-Reese back from injury. Of course, this will lead to some lineup and roster shuffling to accommodate their returns, but it’s a welcome sight for a team without a full complement of players since Oct. 13, the day Schultz suffered a fractured leg against the Montreal Canadiens. The roster...

Penguins Get Depth & Flexibility in Bjugstad, Blueger & McCann

As strange as it may sound, the Pittsburgh Penguins have had a problem at the center position the past two seasons. Despite being blessed with two of the most dominant center icemen of their generation in Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, the lack of production from the rest of the centers has been a thorn in the Penguins’ collective side. It was one the main reasons they were bounced out of the playoffs last season by a deeper Washington Capitals team and also why they started slowly this ...

Former Bruins Forwards Making Noise

The Boston Bruins were one of 10 teams provided additional rest, via the National Hockey League’s mandated five-day break, beginning on the Sunday prior to NHL All-Star Weekend in San Jose. This, for better or for worse, meant that the Black & Gold were idle for 10 days (and nine nights), leaving me with far too much time for reflection.    After checking in on the league’s Top-50 point scorers, including the painfully familiar names of Blake Wheeler, Phil Kessel and Tyler Seguin, here’s what I...

Penguins Top Lightning With Quick Start

PITTSBURGH — Kris Letang tied Hall of Famer Paul Coffey’s franchise record for career goals by a defenceman, Matt Murray stopped 33 shots and the Pittsburgh Penguins held off the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2 on Wednesday night. Letang’s shot from the right circle in the second period beat Andrei Vasilevskiy for his 12th goal of the season and 108th of his career to pull the five-time All-Star even with Coffey, who set the mark while playing for the Penguins from 1987-92.

Guentzel’s Extension Looking Better Every Day

Last month, the Pittsburgh Penguins signed Jake Guentzel to a five-year, $30 million extension. This contract is a testament to what an important piece he’s become on this roster. It’s a deal that looks great on paper for both Guentzel and the team, and he’s been proving that on a nightly basis since the signing. Guentzel totaled 15 goals and 33 points through the first 37 games this season, which is a pretty strong scoring pace for the 24-year-old. However, in the 11 games since he signed his e...

Penguins Down Ducks on Guentzel’s Hat Trick

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Jake Guentzel scored three times, Phil Kessel got the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period and the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied from an early three-goal deficit for a 7-4 victory over the Ducks on Friday night, sending Anaheim to its 10th consecutive loss. Tanner Pearson scored the tying goal midway through the third and added another with 3:25 left for the Penguins, who roared back for their 10th win in 11 games with a four-goal third period.

Penguins Midseason Grades: Forwards

After games against the Winnipeg Jets and Chicago Blackhawks this weekend, the Pittsburgh Penguins have surpassed the halfway mark with 42 games played in the 2018-19 season, and it’s been a tale of two quarters for them. The Penguins started strong with a 6-2-2 record in October but followed it up with an abysmal 4-7-3 November that saw them briefly fall to last place in the Eastern Conference. However, since Dec. 1, they’re 13-3-1, behind only the Tampa Bay Lightning for the best record ...

Penguins Pulpit: Guentzel, Murray & Brassard

A rough month of November gave the Pittsburgh Penguins a scare, but it seems they’re going to be okay. As they head into their final game of the 2018 calendar year against the Minnesota Wild, they are on a five-game winning streak. For the month of December, the Penguins sit at 10-3-2. Their recent run didn’t begin smoothly though. They blew an early two-goal lead against the Anaheim Ducks on Dec. 17, en-route to a 4-2 loss in Daniel Sprong’s first game back in Pittsburgh following the Dec. 3 tr...

Bryan Rust Providing Needed Spark for Penguins

For several seasons, the Pittsburgh Penguins’ offense has been completely reliant on the big three – Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel. When those three aren’t producing, it usually results in a handful of losses in a row. So far this season, the big three are right where they’re supposed to be in terms of leading the team in scoring, but Kessel and Malkin have both been in a vicious slump as of late. While Sidney Crosby has been his usual self over the last six games, both Phi...

They played their first game nine days and a handful of practices later, an exhibition on Sept. 29 against the champions of the SDHL in the first-ever Champ...
