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.

Robin Lehner, New York Islanders Topple Pittsburgh Penguins in Series Sweep

Robin Lehner, New York Islanders Topple Pittsburgh Penguins in Series Sweep

In yet another Round One shocker, the New York Islanders have swept the Pittsburgh Penguins. It's the first time the Penguins have been swept since 2013. That year, the Boston Bruins swept Pittsburgh during the Eastern Conference Finals. It's also the first time the Penguins haven't won a single playoff game since Sidney Crosby's rookie season (2005-2006). For the Islanders, it was their first playoff series sweep since 1983 and first playoff series win since the 2015-2016 season. The Islanders rode the back of Robin Lehner who had never won a playoff game prior to this year. Let's take a...

Now the tough questions begin for Penguins

Now the tough questions begin for Penguins

Specifically, where did it go wrong and who returns next season? Well, that certainly didn’t go as planned. The Pittsburgh Penguins’ 2018-19 season came to a disappointing thud of an end on Tuesday night as they watched the New York Islanders celebrate a clear four-game sweep on the PPG Paints Arena ice. It is the first time since 2015 the Penguins have gone out in the first round — an impressive run — and the first time they have been swept since the 2013 Eastern Conference Final against the Boston Bruins. Now, the questions begin. The questions as to where this postseason failure...

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...

Penguins/Islanders Game 4 Recap: New York sweeps Pittsburgh out of 2019 NHL Playoffs

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.
