Previewing tonight’s game vs. Calgary

The Penguins welcome what will surely be a surly Flames tonight at 7 o’clock at Consol Energy Center. Following Thursday’s 4-3 loss at Buffalo, Calgary (17-11-2) has dropped its past three games, putting a damper on what could be considered …

Pregame: Penguins at Rangers, 7 p.m.

NEW YORK – Center Brandon Sutter said the Penguins’ poor start was largely responsible for a 5-0 loss at the New York Rangers on Nov. 11. Can’t argue. Of course, the finish wasn’t much to speak of either. “We definitely didn’t …

Mackey: Saturday’s bounce-back huge

The Penguins’ 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday was worth two points in the standings. It pushed them back into a first-place tie with the Islanders, who suffered a 6-4 loss to the Blues yesterday. Felt like much more, …

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

The Canucks are in town tonight, and a year ago this wouldn’t be all that sexy of a matchup. It is now. Vancouver (17-7-1) is playing exciting, upbeat hockey under first-year coach Willie Desjardins, who happens to be a close …

Postgame: Malkin, Bortuzzo and more

I haven’t heard Penguins coach Mike Johnston take credit for much. It’s not his style. He sort of did it Monday, though, following a 1-0 win over the New Jersey Devils while discussing forward Evgeni Malkin’s energy level. “I thought it …

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

November was a good month for the Penguins. They posted 10 wins, tying a franchise record from 2010 and 1995. Captain Sidney Crosby led the NHL in points with 18. His 16 assists also are the best in the league. …

Postgame: Pens not pushing issue

Make this about the lack of power plays all you want, and it’s not wrong. There haven’t been very many. Nine over the past six games and 17 over the past nine. But power-play chances don’t just fall from the …

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

Scoring first doesn’t necessarily mean having a strong start, captain Sidney Crosby said. It seems like an appropriate idea with back-to-back games against Carolina starting tonight. The Penguins have scored first in 17 of 21 games so far, and they’re …

Postgame: The goal that delivered No. 300

BOSTON – I wrote about Marc-Andre Fleury for Tuesday’s paper, and rightfully so. He did, after all, win his 300th game with a 3-2 overtime decision over Boston at TD Garden. Did it faster than everybody except for Martin Brodeur …
