Underrated star of Penguins win vs. Bruins: The penalty killing unit

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports They made huge plays at two huge moments. It was embarrassing. It was a joke. It was insulting. Everyone involved should be completely embarrassed with themselves. No, that is not directed at the fans for giving Matt Murray the ol’ Bronx Cheer on Sunday, but the officiating tandem of Kelly Sutherland and Francois St. Laurent for having what seemed to be zero interest in doing their jobs in officiating a hockey game. Yes, it is low-hanging fruit to go at on-ice officials (low-hanging fruit still tastes sweet, though!), and I understand that is a hard...

An unemotional look at the emotional Pens’ fans jeering of Matt Murray

Photo by Joe Sargent/NHLI via As part of the Penguins’ pre-game media material, the team bragged a little about an impressive achievement given to them by their fans in the form an almost 13-year straight sellout streak turning over another milestone. When the puck drops [Sunday] afternoon, it will officially be Pittsburgh’s 600th-consecutive sellout at home. The sellout streak, which includes regular season and playoff games, dates all the way back to Feb. 14, 2007 – a 5-4 shootout win against the Chicago Blackhawks. Through the first 599 games, a total of 10,870,298 fans have...

Murray or Jarry: An interesting (and telling) decision awaits the Penguins on Sunday

Photo by Gerry Thomas/NHLI via Has Matt Murray done enough to win back the net for another game? An interesting development has popped up since the calendar changed to 2020. It’s right there on nhl.com: Matt Murray, for the first time in a long time, has been outplaying Tristan Jarry. Jarry has allowed three goals (no more, no less) in each of his six games this season. To be fair, many have not been that of the soft or weak variety, but more situational or just a victim of “ahh, it happens” when he’s allowed a goal. However, that in and of itself is noteworthy...
