Penguins’ Stock Report: The Alex Galchenyuk situation

Penguins’ Stock Report: The Alex Galchenyuk situation

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Another big injury, two more two-goal deficits, and another rough stretch for the power play. This was a pretty lackluster week for the Penguins that included two more two-goal deficits in as many games, another major injury (Sidney Crosby), and only two out of a possible four points against the Chicago Blackhawks and New York Rangers. Needless to say, things probably could have gone a little better. That means it is a tough week for the Penguins’ stock report because there was not much positive going on this week. Who Is Up The penalty kill — Just...

The Penguins need Alex Galchenyuk to step it up

The Penguins need Alex Galchenyuk to step it up

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ So far the Pens need more out of their talented winger It’s November 13th and the next goal Alex Galchenyuk scores will be the first in a Penguins jersey. He’s missed time to injury, but has but one assist (a secondary one coming off a fairly routine up ice pass) in six games since returning. That’s not gone unnoticed by his head coach, known for very rarely offering even the slightest of negative critiques in public. “He’s just got to be more focused on just playing the game the right way,” Mike Sullivan said after Tuesday night’s game. “Competing...

5 Thoughts: Letang’s impact, injuries, Bjugstad, and effort

Photo by Steve Babineau/NHLI via A random sampling of thoughts about the Pittsburgh Penguins #1 Injuries bite hard idea for the next Kennywood coaster (from https://t.co/1BmYdtjaig) pic.twitter.com/dQRJ2OTVWO— ck (@404ResponseCode) November 5, 2019 If you click you can see more, the visualization takes the cumulative cap hit game-by-game and the Penguins are running away from the league. That’s no surprise, since they had something like $27 million of salary cap hits earlier in the year (think high price absences like Evgeni Malkin, Nick Bjugstad, Bryan Rust, Alex Galchenyuk)...

The Penguins seem to have a new shut down line

The Penguins seem to have a new shut down line

James Carey Lauder-USA TODAY Sports The Teddy Blueger, Brandon Tanev, Zach Aston-Reese trio has been dominant in its minutes together. The past few games have given us a glimpse of what the 2019-20 Pittsburgh Penguins might look like with a fully healthy roster. And while there are still some issues that keep popping up (Patrick Hornqvist is now out) things look dramatically better than they did just a couple of weeks ago. The return of Evgeni Malkin, Alex Galchenyuk, Bryan Rust and Nick Bjugstad not only means players the Penguins were expected to count on this season are back, it...

Penguins/Flyers Recap: Pittsburgh blows out Philadelphia in a laugher

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports It was all Pens early in a four goal explosion in the first period and that led to a big Pittsburgh win over the Flyers The good news for the Penguins started before the puck even dropped, as they got healthier with the return from injury by defenseman Brian Dumoulin and forward Alex Galchenyuk to add to an increasingly stronger team. Let’s get weird.#LetsGoPens pic.twitter.com/bU3iLVKBRy— Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) October 29, 2019 (It feels like the fourth line tonight was like a “second” line for a couple weeks, doesn’t it?) First...

The week ahead: schedule turns friendly for the Penguins

Photo by Matthew Pearce/Icon Sportswire via We preview the week ahead for the Pittsburgh Penguins Without a doubt the story for the first month of the season for the Pittsburgh Penguins has been about hanging on through mounting injuries. It started with Bryan Rust getting hurt in the last preseason game. Nick Bjugstad and Evgeni Malkin both went down injured in the second game of the regular season. Alex Galchenyuk was dealing with a nagging groin injury since the preseason and allegedly suffered a setback when bit by a spider. Brian Dumoulin has missed the last four games with a...

Injury updates on Evgeni Malkin, Alex Galchenyuk, Brian Dumoulin, Jared McCann and more!

Photo by Joe Sargent/NHLI via Lots of happenings at Penguins’ practice this morning Following an off-day on Sunday, the Pittsburgh Penguins were back at it in Cranberry this morning as they prepped before heading out for a Florida swing. With a team so banged up, there are a ton of updates: Evgeni Malkin and Alex Galchenyuk skated together for about an hour before the team got on the ice. That’s a nice step for both, particularly Malkin who has had a murky outlook of a “soft tissue injury” on October 5th, with no official timeline to return. Neither are probably all that close...

McKenzie: Penguins’ Alex Galchenyuk suffered setback because of allergic reaction to a SPIDER BITE!

Photo by Justin Berl/ Like....are you kidding? The Pittsburgh Penguins have had some awfully weird injuries over the years, but an update about Alex Galchenyuk could be the strangest happening for an organization that has nothing but strange and unfortunate things happen. “This is going from the sublime to the ridiculous,” McKenzie said on NBCSN during the first intermission of Wednesday night’s game. “Galchenyuk was dealing with a soft tissue injury, believed to be a groin injury suffered in training camp. His rehab and recovery from that has been stalled because —get this —...
