Penguins possess one of the NHL’s top producing first lines

Breaking: Sidney Crosby is good at hockey, and he makes everyone around him better. Given the headline, you must be thinking: “well, duh.” And you’re right! The Penguins employ the greatest player in the world (please wipe your feet and leave your Connor McDavid whataboutisms at the door) on their top line. Pittsburgh’s combination of Sidney Crosby, Jake Guentzel, Dominik Simon, and everyone who has slotted into Simon’s spot since his injury, has been producing at a rate that’s ranked first in the league in just about every major statistical category at even-strength. Now, I...

Trending Penguins Players: Bryan Rust Arrives

Trending Penguins Players: Bryan Rust Arrives

His hat trick against the Chicago Blackhawks might be the jumpstart his season needs. It has been a bizarre week for the Pittsburgh Penguins. What has happened since we checked in on the Trending Penguins Players a week ago? The Penguins played a strong game in Ottawa but could not break through offensively and ended up losing in overtime. They came back a couple of nights later and won in a shootout in New York thanks to a Derick Brassard goal in regulation and a Jake Guentzel winning-goal in the fourth round. With those two results, the Penguins were on a 6-2-3 run that had brought them...

RECAP: Casey DeSmith is stellar Penguins’ 2-1 shootout victory over the Islanders

Casey DeSmith was sensational in a game featuring a tough goaltender battle that featured a Jake Guentzel SO winner. Pregame Pittsburgh’s annual Dad Trip (one that always yields great results on the scoreboard) began tonight on the road, as the Penguins took on the Islanders. The fourth and final meeting between these two Metro foes took place at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, an arena that most of the Penguins’ players have found memories and enjoy playing in. Well... everyone except for Kris Letang. “I don’t like Nassau at all,” Letang said. “In Brooklyn, at least...

On needing more from the Derick Brassard and Phil Kessel combination

On needing more from the Derick Brassard and Phil Kessel combination

Pittsburgh is sticking with Phil and Brassard, which hasn’t gone so well Today at practice, the Penguins lines were basically the same as they have been for the past few games. Sidney Crosby skated between Jake Guentzel and Dominik Simon on the team’s top line, which has also been their recent top-performing line by far in terms of production. Evgeni Malkin centered Tanner Pearson and Patric Hornqvist on the second line. And Derick Brassard was in between Phil Kessel and Zach Aston-Reese on a third line. The Brassard/Kessel combination has been used in earnest for a few games, but the...

Recap: Pens give up too many breakaways, lose to Flyers

It was not a good hockey night in Pittsburgh It all started so good for the Pittsburgh Penguins. First shift, 39 seconds in Jake Guentzel fed Sidney Crosby on an odd man rush and the Pens were on the board. Sidney Crosby is on fire Fun fact: He also has points in five-straight games against the Flyers (3G-9A). pic.twitter.com/cFBecjuT0n— Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) December 2, 2018 But it wouldn’t last. Five minutes later Travis Konecny got a breakaway and beat Casey DeSmith. In the second period Riley Sheahan made a power move off the wall to the middle and lifted a nice shot...
