Jack Johnson will always give you what you think he will

Justin Schultz’s injury means the Penguins will need even more from their big free agent acquisition. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a Penguins free agency signing get the reaction that Jack Johnson’s did over the summer. There were two very different schools of thought on what his five-year, $17 million contract meant for the Penguins, and neither side was willing to give an inch on their position. Thought 1: An objective, numbers based approach that saw a defender who had consistently posted some of the worst on-ice numbers in the league over the past decade, both in terms of...

It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for the Penguins to play, and surely coming off a bad game the wait has been even longer.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Montreal Canadiens Recap: Listless Pens fall

Terrible effort results in a 5-1 loss Lineups No changes for the Penguins from the first game. See you soon, @CanadiensMTL. pic.twitter.com/crYPpQ3Ms4— Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) October 6, 2018 1st period The Pens are flat early, get a power play but don’t do anything with it. They take a penalty but the Canadiens are also quiet on it. Montreal opens the scoring when Jack Johnson turns a puck over in the neutral zone and can’t track back in time on Brendan Gallagher. 1-0. Tomas Tatar takes advantage of a sloppy play by the Penguins, and he sets up Brendan Gallagher for a...

Takeaways from Penguins vs. Red Wings

Takeaways from Penguins vs. Red Wings

What we learned and saw in the Pittsburgh Penguins preseason game last night in Detroit Icing another less than full strength roster, one of the more interesting players to focus on last night for the Penguins in Detroit was defenseman Jack Johnson in his fist game in a Pittsburgh jersey. Defenseman Jack Johnson at right, the furthest from the net on a good Detroit scoring chance. Then joined a rush, Pens turnover, immediate 3-on-1 against. It’s only preseason but that’s sum of all fears stuff pic.twitter.com/1SJwA6NKZW— Jimmy Rixner (@Hooks_Orpik) September 20, 2018 As the...
