PENGUINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Penguins Nip Hurricanes 2-1 in Shootout

It wasn’t a pretty win. Especially by recent standards. Indeed, if the Penguins perhaps deserved a better fate during Wednesday’s 3-0 home-ice loss to the Rangers, they were downright lucky to escape Raleigh with a point last night, let alone two. Contrary to their preferred style of play under Mike Sullivan, the Pens spent a significant portion of the game refuting the notion...

Game 54: Puke and Raleigh. Pens blow lead but win in shootout

Phil Kessel Timeline:   The final stat line on Kessel: 19 minutes, 7 shots, 1 goal. 10 instances of him trying to catch his breathe on the bench. ROOT is trying to push hard on the attempted shots movement thing, but we aren’t buying that. Attempted shots are the same thing to us as “attempting to get out of bed.” You either do or you don’t. REST OF THE GAME It was...

David Perron, Carl Hagelin Thriving After Midseason Swap

It’s not often that two NHL clubs swap pieces and both walk away as winners, but that seems to be exactly the case with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Anaheim Ducks. The teams engaged in a trade of offensive weapons earlier this season, with the Penguins trading away David Perron (and journeyman defender Adam Clendening) to the Ducks in exchange for speedy winger Carl Hagelin on January...

The Penguins and Draft Kings combine for the worst thing ever

Do less, Penguins.     So just think, you could hire all your friends as associate GM’s, hire a peewee coach, trade some prospects for horrible players, try to kill Rob Rossi after a game and you would only be half as bad as the real GM of the Penguins. Good times.

Penguins Update: I Was Wrrr

For those of us ancient enough to remember the TV show Happy Days, it was a classic episode. The one where Fonzie tried to admit he was wrong to Ralph Malph, but couldn’t get the words out. “I was wrrrr…,” stammered the Fonz. Well, the same goes for me. I was wrrrr about our Penguins. Six weeks ago I predicted a black-and-gold implosion of epic proportions. As recently as...

Penguins Rally Behind Crosby and Letang: Hunt Down Panthers

For the better part of 55 minutes it looked like one of those nights for our Pittsburgh Penguins. You know. Second of back-to-back games. On the road, to boot. Tired legs. No puck luck. Then…BLAM. In a volcanic display of skill, superstars Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang erupted for three goals in just over six minutes to stun the Florida Panthers and snatch a sweet 3-2 victory from...

Report: Sale of Penguins could be held up

A lot has been made recently of the working relationship between Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle, co-owners of the Pittsburgh Penguins. I wouldn’t describe it as a black cloud, but for people around the team I am sure they would like to move on from this saga. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review gave us insight to a few reasons why the Penguins haven’t been sold yet: • Proposed NHL...

No rift between Penguins owners on possible sale, they say

In what has already been a rocky season for the Pittsburgh Penguins that has included disputes over playing time for prospect Daniel Sprong, a coach barely into his second season behind the bench getting canned, and another major trade that has failed to pan out as expected, rumors of in-fighting at the top of the organization are getting louder. It has been rumored that the Penguins...

Malkin jokes about Ovechkin’s bad defending

The NHL All-Star Game is fun for several reasons, but one of the best is the fact it creates teammates out of rivals. Evgeni Malkin and Alex Ovechkin aren’t heated enemies, but they do skate for opposing franchises with a pretty colorful recent history. With that in mind, Malkin’s slight dig at Ovechkin’s defense is pretty great. Malkin playfully ribbed his buddy Ovechkin...
