Penguins Playoff History With the Islanders Grows Deeper

No tarot card reader or Ouija board would have predicted the New York Islanders would sweep the Pittsburgh Penguins out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang, Phil Kessel and the rest had too much firepower and playoff experience. The Islanders were too young and lacked leadership and big time goaltending.

Blues to play Detroit Red Wings in 2019 Kraft Hockeyville game

Blues to play Detroit Red Wings in 2019 Kraft Hockeyville game

This isn’t the Blues’ first Hockeyville rodeo A couple of seasons ago, the Blues played the Pittsburgh Penguins in Belle Vernon, PA for that city’s Kraft Hockeyville victory. They won that game, 4-1, with a scoring onslaught that mucked up the local Pens’ fans chance to enjoy Sidney Crosby and Evgeny Malkin. This pre-season, the Blues have been tapped to play the Detroit Red Wings in another Kraft Hockeyville game, this time in Calumet, MI. It’s a pretty sweet haul for the town’s local rink - they get $150,000 in rink upgrades and $10,000 in equipment. From the press...

Game 4 was a lot like all the previous ones, as the New York Islanders take out the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 Lineups The Penguins stick with the same personnel but shuffle the forward lines to put Jared McCann up with the Sidney Crosby / Jake Guentzel line, as well as reuniting Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel.

Penguins & Pittsburgh Youth Hockey Share Intertwined History

In 2019, with the Pittsburgh Penguins in their 52nd season in the NHL, having five Stanley Cup championships to their credit, playing in their 13th consecutive playoff berth, and boasting current and alumni rosters with the names Mario Lemieux and Sidney Crosby, it’s hard to imagine the city of Pittsburgh as anything less than a […] The post Penguins & Pittsburgh Youth Hockey Share Intertwined History appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

In a 2-0 hole against the Islanders, how have the Penguins responded to these instances in the past?

In a 2-0 hole against the Islanders, how have the Penguins responded to these instances in the past?

In the Crosby/Malkin era, the Penguins have started a playoff series down 2-0 now six times. In the past 5 versions of these situations, let’s see how things fared for the team and how they responded. The Penguins are down two games to zero in the first round of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the New York Islanders, but the sun still came up this morning. While a 2-0 hole is a massive deficit, we are still talking about a team who has enough talent to break out on the scoresheet at any time. From a historical perspective, in this era of the Penguins with Crosby and Malkin, this...

Looking at some potential Penguins’ playoff X-factors

Somebody that is not one of the star players is going to need to make an impact if the Pittsburgh Penguins are going to make some kind of extended Stanley Cup Playoffs run. If the Pittsburgh Penguins are going to beat the New York Islanders and make a run at another Stanley Cup we know they are going to need big-time performances from their big-time players. We know that includes Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang, Matt Murray, Jake Guentzel, Phil Kessel, etc. etc. etc. They can not do it if those players do not produce. Maybe they will; maybe they won’t! The playoffs are two...
