Pens Points: Unfriendly Road

Pens road woes continue with loss to Red Wings. Losing skid moves to three in a row. More struggles for the Penguins on Saturday as they fell 6-3 to the Detroit Red Wings and saw their season long losing streak extended to three games. The Pens led 3-2 late in the second period but four unanswered goals by the Red Wings gave them an advantage they never relinquished. [Pensburgh] Adding insult to injury, Pens’ defenseman Kris Letang was lost to a left leg injury after a tie up with Tomas Vanek. Letang left the ice clutching his knee and unable to put any weight on the leg. [Pittsburgh...

Recap: Detroit Red Wings 6 - Pittsburgh Penguins 3

Red Wings keep Penguins grounded with comeback win The Detroit Red Wings return home after a five game road trip where they dropped their last three games. Joe Louis Arena has not been kind to the Wings as they have a 3-10-3 record in their last 16 home games. The Pittsburgh Penguins come to Detroit on a two game losing streak of their own, but they still hold onto the third spot in the Metropolitan division. 1st Period Holy jumpin’, 30 seconds in Kris Letang snipes Jared Coreau to take the early lead.

Pens/Red Wings Recap: It's so cold in the D

The Pens take a 2-0 lead, but then give up 6 of the next 7 goals to fall 6-3 in Detroit. Quite the ugly game including an injury to Kris Letang, but let's recap it anyways. Pregame The defense gets shuffled up, with Steve Oleksy taking a seat in the press box after a couple of rocky games and David Warsofsky gets in his 5th NHL game of the season (and first since October 29). The pairings are also reshuffled with Ian Cole getting his first crack in a long time as a Kris Letang partner, Warsofsky playing with Justin Schultz and the reuniting of the Olli Maatta - Trevor Daley duo that haven't...

Plane life with the Pittsburgh Penguins

Plane life with the Pittsburgh Penguins

Kris Letang and Steven Oleksy played Monopoly. Being in the NHL means you have to fly a lot. It’s just a given. You play at least 41 games in cities not your own. And if you’re a team in, say, Pittsburgh, you’re not exactly all that close to any of your opponents - not in the way two teams from New York are, for example. So you’d better make flying comfortable. And it is, as Kris Letang and Steven Oleksy have demonstrated for us. @StevenOleksy and I enjoying the NHL pic.twitter.com/q7UWYFAt4d— Kristopher Letang (@Letang_58) January 10, 2017 Tough to win when @Letang_58 is...

Pensburgh Ups and Downs: December 2016

Pensburgh Ups and Downs: December 2016

A look at good individual performances and poor ones for the month of December. What an interesting December it was for the Pittsburgh Penguins. They won the first seven games of the month (scoring a whopping 39 goals, 5.5 per game), clicking like never before. Then Kris Letang got injured, obviously causing a bit of an adjustment and the team scored just 1 goal in the next 2 games (going 0-0-2). They'd bounce back though to embarrass the Rangers 7-2, before losing the only regulation game of the month in equally embarrassing fashion 7-1 to a Columbus team that could do no wrong this month...
Canadiens vs. Penguins game recap: Habs leave a point in Pittsburgh

Canadiens vs. Penguins game recap: Habs leave a point in Pittsburgh

Canadiens drop a third-period lead and fall to the Stanley Cup champs in OT. The Habs looked to end 2016 on a positive note as they rolled into Pittsburgh after taking three out of four points in Florida. Kris Letang made his return to the Penguins lineup after missing the last seven games with injury. The first period began with the kind of fast-paced hockey we’ve come to expect from these two teams. Right from the first shot — a save by Marc-Andre Fleury off Brian Flynn — the teams were engaged with a little scrum in front of the Penguins’ netminder. The Daniel Carr-Michael...
