Penguins/Jets Recap: Jarry helps Pens finish comeback, win 3-2 (SO)

Photo by Jeanine Leech/Icon Sportswire via The Pens get two goals nine seconds apart to tie up on the Winnipeg Jets. Tristan Jarry took care of the rest, including three saves in the shootout to push Pittsburgh to a 3-2 win Sometimes a weekend matinee NHL game can be a bit sluggish. The Penguins and Jets didn’t get that memo as they exchanged chances, big hits and goals in Pittsburgh on Sunday, including a heart-pounding overtime that saw action and near-misses on both sides of the ice. The game started rough for the Penguins, who already announced forward Zach...

Looking back on Penguins stars’ first NHL fights

John Marino drops the gloves against Ottawa’s Brady Tkachuk during the third period on January 20. | Photo by Emilee Chinn/ John Marino dropped the gloves for the first time in his NHL career on Thursday, and it’s made us nostalgic. Of course John Marino earned the helmet after the Penguins’ Thursday night 6-5 victory over the visiting Senators; in his 147th regular-season game, the defenseman dropped his gloves against notorious Ottawa instigator Brady Tkachuk for his first NHL fight, the hockey equivalent of a coming-of-age ceremony. First fight? That's pretty...

Trending Penguins Players: So close to a full lineup

Trending Penguins Players: So close to a full lineup

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports It actually almost happened. Overall you have to be happy with the results for the Pittsburgh Penguins this week. They bounced back from an ugly loss in Los Angeles to win three straight games in San Jose, Vegas, and back at home against the Ottawa Senators. The process behind those wins might not be what they wanted and definitely gives them some things to work on. The game in San Jose was sloppy and pretty much stolen by Louis Domingue. They had a rough start in Vegas before rebounding to dominate the final 50 minutes. Then the...

PensBurgh Podcast: What does the future hold for Jason Zucker?

PensBurgh Podcast: What does the future hold for Jason Zucker?

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports In this week’s PensBurgh Podcast episode: We recap the Penguins’ games against LAK (6-2 L), SJ (2-1 OTW), VGK (5-3 W) This week, Robbie and I are focusing specifically on Jason Zucker. The forward has recently returned after missing seven games, and was credited with two goals in his return game against the Vegas Golden Knights. I think it’s safe to say the Zucker experiment hasn’t worked out for the Pittsburgh Penguins. 43 points in 84 games played for your second line left wing alongside Evgeni Malkin isn’t great. Factor in...
