Mike Sullivan Gets a Three-Year Extension 

Merry Christmas! The day after Christmas, the Penguins announced that they have given Mike Sullivan a contract extension, making him the man behind the bench through the 2019-2020 season. This news comes out just barely past one calendar year as the Penguins coach, when Sullivan took over as the head coach last season on December 12th after Mike Johnston was fired after a lackluster start … Continue reading Mike Sullivan Gets a Three-Year Extension¬†

Recap: Blue Jackets 7, Penguins 1

So the Penguins really did give up a touchdown to the hated Columbus Blue Jackets. They honestly deserved every one of them too. Pittsburgh came in fairly sure of themselves as a team and why wouldn’t they? First place. Steamrolled the Rangers last game. Crosby is the hottest player in the league. How could they lose? But the best part of this year is, just … Continue reading Recap: Blue Jackets 7, Penguins 1

COLUMN: Justin-Credible; The Growth of Schultz

Justin Schultz is happy. And why wouldn’t he be? He’s a Stanley Cup champion. He’s been given an opportunity that wasn’t given to him in Edmonton. And most importantly, he’s employed by an organization that has embraced him and given him a chance to succeed. It shows. We’ve all been witness to the growth of this young defenseman, and every second of it has been … Continue reading COLUMN: Justin-Credible; The Growth of Schultz

Penguins’ Biggest Threat In Metropolitan Division

The new year is quickly approaching which inches us slightly closer to the best playoff grind in sports: the NHL playoffs. Of course they won’t begin until April, but that doesn’t stop fans from looking ahead to the playoffs. Even more so since the Penguins are almost guaranteed a playoff spot. Or are they? The Penguins are playing at a high level right now and … Continue reading Penguins’ Biggest Threat In Metropolitan Division

Crunch Time For Derrick Pouliot

It’s put-up-or-shut-up time for Penguins defenseman Derrick Pouliot. After an injury to star defenseman Kris Letang, the Penguins recalled Pouliot to be the next defenseman up. With Steven Oleksy the current seventh guy on the roster it’s quite likely they could use Oleksy as opposed to Pouliot. The Penguins have wanted a chance for Pouliot to play for a while and this may be it. … Continue reading Crunch Time For Derrick Pouliot

Player Safety Certainly An Issue

Sidney Crosby is on fire. The haters are running out of ideas so they’ve recycled the statement that Crosby is protected by the league. I already debunked that with video evidence on this site earlier this season, but Sid isn’t the only one the NHL is failing this year. Boarding in my opinion has become the penaltie du jour among hitters who don’t want to … Continue reading Player Safety Certainly An Issue

Penguins 4, Bruins 3: The Streak Continues

On December 14, 2016 the Pittsburgh Penguins took on the Boston Bruins at PPG Paints Arena. After a close scoring game, the Penguins were able to overwhelm the Boston Bruins with their offensive speed and gritty play. As of right now, the Penguins lead the Metropolitan Division with 43 points on a seven game win streak. The Bruins are now third in the Atlantic Division, … Continue reading Penguins 4, Bruins 3: The Streak Continues

Murray Proving Worthy of Crease

Monday night’s 7-0 pounding of the Arizona Coyotes was just another example of how good the Penguins can be when they’re clicking on all cylinders. Goaltending performances tend to be lost in games like these where the offense puts up seven goals, each scored by a different Penguin, and that’s not fair. Goaltender Matt Murray was not tested much at all but when he was, … Continue reading Murray Proving Worthy of Crease
