Brandon Tanev and drawing penalties

Photo by Joe Sargent/NHLI via He does not seem to be getting the calls the way he was earlier this season. It has been a big week for Pittsburgh Penguins winger Brandon Tanev. Over the previous five games he has scored two game winning goals (Montreal and Vegas), one late game-tying goal to help set up another win (Arizona), and continues to be a part of the team’s dominant shutdown defensive line alongside Teddy Blueger and Zach Aston-Reese. By doing so, he continues to make a lot of people (like me) that were initially critical of his contract look kind of dumb. He has been...

Penguins’ Stock Report: The team’s most underrated line

Photo by Scott Audette /NHLI via The line of Teddy Blueger, Brandon Tanev, and Zach Aston-Reese has been outstanding. Style points do not matter right now. Just get the wins anyway you can, and the Pittsburgh Penguins were able to do that in a couple of road games this past week by beating the Montreal Canadiens in overtime and then jumping all over the Vegas Golden Knights early on Tuesday to give them enough cushion to hold on for the win. It was a lot of the same players contributing to the wins. Evgeni Malkin and Bryan Rust scored a couple of goals, Kris Letang had a huge game in...

Brandon Tanev Proving Pittsburgh Penguins Faith was Warranted

Brandon Tanev Proving Pittsburgh Penguins Faith was Warranted

In July, when the free-agent frenzy started, the Pittsburgh Penguins big signing was forward Brandon Tanev. General Manager Jim Rutherford isn't opposed to making a splash, which he did when giving a six-year contract to Tanev. Many had questioned the move solely because a player of his calibre usually isn't given that much security. However, Tanev has been everything Rutherford's team needed and more. Brandon Tanev Bringing Everything to the Penguins Tanev's $3.5 million AAV wasn't much of a concern to fans. It had been the length of the contract that seemed problematic. The 28-year old...

Penguins’ first half review: Best performances, most surprising players

Photo by Joe Sargent/NHLI via Looking at the performances of Jake Guentzel, Bryan Rust, Tristan Jarry, Brandon Tanev, and John Marino this season. Now that the Pittsburgh Penguins are officially into the second half of the 2019-20 season, we want to take a look back at the best, worst, and most surprising performances and players from the first half of the season. Overall, the Penguins have exceeded not only most of their preseason expectations so far, but especially when you consider the fact they lead the league in man-games lost due to injury. It is a testament to the team general...

It’s kind of interesting that while Evgeni Malkin and Jim Rutherford don’t have much left to prove or accomplish, their seasons are standing out as two really good years, after there was a lot of justifiable...

Time is running out for Habs, and reinforcements might not be able to save them

Photo by Francois Lacasse/NHLI via Canadiens are on another long winless streak after loss to the Penguins. If the goal is to make the playoffs, the Montreal Canadiens are running out of chances to make that happen. The Habs lost yet again on Saturday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Habs led 2-1 into the third period but went on to lose 3-2 in overtime after a Brandon Tanev goal sent the visitors home happy. Habs goaltender Carey Price didn’t speak to the media afterward, and head coach Claude Julien declined to comment on the winning goal and ultimately kept his press...
