What in the hell are the Penguins doing for their Home Opener

What the hell happened to this organization?  Via KissFM, here are the Penguins plans for tomorrow’s home opener.   We don’t know about you but before this post we thought the “X Ambassadors” were a bunch of dudes that hang out at a local VFW.

Are the Penguins a Top Ten Team?

View image | Power Ranking: 10  Click to See Full Rankings The Penguins made one of the biggest moves of the offseason by trading for Phil Kessel. This Pengiuns team will be a joy to watch in OT, as they can throw out any of Phil Kessel, Evgeni Malkin, and Sidney Crosby with the game on the line and on the power play. That will be fun hockey to watch. However...

It’s Already Time To Ditch The Split Power-Play

We’ve all heard the arguments over the course of the last few years that there just isn’t enough ice to go around for the Penguins star players on the man-advantage. It’s an argument I used to be able to commiserate with from time to time. The power-play, across two coaching regimes and changes in personnel and systems, has been prone to becoming too stagnant.

Bobby Orr, Property of Pittsburgh Penguins

By Greg Enright Legendary defensemen Bobby Orr wore the black and gold of the Boston Bruins from 1966 to 1976, but for two days in 1980 the great Number 4 donned a different kind of black and gold – that of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Orr was invited to the Pens’ training camp by recently hired head coach Eddie Johnston, who had played with the great defenseman in Boston. They...

Pittsburgh Penguins’ power play unit not getting job done

Through two games of the 2015 season, the Pittsburgh Penguins are winless, with losses to the Dallas Stars and Arizona Coyotes to start the year. We’re all of 2.4 percent of the way through the 82-game season, but there have been several areas of concern through the team’s first two games. The Pens have had trouble generating any offense, scoring one measly goal. Superstar center...

Breakdown: Game Two – Penguins 1, Coyotes 2

The big guns stayed mostly quiet for the second straight game as the Penguins fell to the Coyotes late Saturday night. Other than a vintage Phil Kessel goal, the Pens looked tentative on offense. Sid was held without a shot for the second straight game. If the Penguins are going to succeed this season with a patchwork defensive unit, the big-time stars need to generate early and...

Key Observations heading into game 2 between the Penguins and Coyotes

PENGUINS: The Pittsburgh Penguins didn’t crack open the 2015-16 season they way they’d hoped Thursday night against the Dallas Stars, but they’ll get another chance tonight when they attempt to spoil the Arizona Coyotes’ home opener. The Penguins weren’t able to capitalize on their scoring chances Thursday, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t have a number of good looks...

Video: Did Marc-Andre Fleury ask a fan about a penis piercing?

Marc-Andre Fleury was having some fun with a metal detecting wand as fans arrived to pick up their Penguins season tickets. Maybe a bit too much fun as he waved it over a male fan’s waist, causing the detector to go off. It then sounds like Fleury makes a joke most of us would have kept in our head. Did he really just ask about a penis piercing? You be the judge. i'm 92% sure...
