Postgame: Penguins 2, Hurricanes 1

A game story off of Wednesday’s 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes could have gone a thousand different ways. Maybe two thousand. I chose Beau Bennett. I wrote about the Penguins winger, and what a healthy Bennett could mean for …

Pregame: Penguins vs. Hurricanes, 7 p.m.

The Penguins need offense, preferably from their power play. They’ve scored 11 goals over their past six games. They haven’t scored more than four in a game during that stretch, which dates back to Dec. 15 against Tampa Bay. Yet, they …

More on Paul Martin’s return

The Penguins hope to get a solid infusion of players back Wednesday. There’s a solid chance forwards Beau Bennett and Craig Adams, defenseman Christian Ehrhoff and goaltender Thomas Greiss could all be back after missing multiple games. By the weekend, …

Pregame: Penguins vs. Panthers, 7 p.m.

The game plan was to generate second- and third-chance opportunities against Colorado goaltender Calvin Pickard, a rookie playing his 11th NHL game. The Penguins followed the game plan perfectly and wound up with a season-high 48 shots on goal. Only …

Pregame: Penguins vs. Avalanche, 7 p.m.

Few people know much of anything about Colorado Avalanche goaltender Calvin Pickard, who’s 10 games into his NHL career. Penguins coach Mike Johnston is one of them. Johnston coached against Pickard in the Western Hockey League from 2008-09 through 2011-12, …

Mackey: Leftovers from Monday’s win

Pregame: Penguins vs. Lightning, 7 p.m.

For much of the season, the Penguins have been the preeminent offensive team in the NHL. That’s not the case anymore. And the team directly above them in goals per game – Tampa Bay – visits Consol Energy Center on …
