Detroit pregame

Some quick hits from Penguins coach Mike Sullivan’s pre-game press availability Marc-Andre Fleury will start today. We didn’t ask what that means for tomorrow’s starter, seeing as Sullivan probably wouldn’t tell us. That’ll be a post-game question, though. Nick Bonino, …

New Jersey postgame

No soul-searching team meeting followed the Penguins’ latest shutout loss to New Jersey. As poorly as they played, they identified positives in Thursday’s 3-0 setback that didn’t exist in the 4-0 loss to the Devils on Nov. 14, otherwise known as …

New Jersey pregame

A little late with the pregame blog post today, but hey, if you like hot takes, it’s worth the wait. This afternoon, I did a local sports talk radio show that will remain nameless (it rhymes with Snarky and Cruller). …

Winning the press conference

I wrote a few times, in the days after Mike Sullivan took over as Penguins coach, about winning the press conference. Between Mike Tomlin and Clint Hurdle, it happens quite a bit with the pro teams in town. It happened again Tuesday …

Capitals postgame

Behold the taming of the best team in the NHL. The Penguins, a day removed from an equally decisive win over the hottest team in the Eastern Conference (save for themselves), rolled their win streak to six in a row with …

Capitals pregame

Washington coach Barry Trotz, a man who half-jokingly referenced war-on-ice.com the last time the Penguins met the Capitals, offered only a puzzled response to a question about shot suppression prior to Sunday evening’s fourth meeting between his team and Mike …

Philadelphia postgame

First off, I swear I’m not writing this to try to beat Rob Rossi in the most annoying Pittsburgh media member bracket. It’s seriously a point I think is worth making. The Penguins beat Philadelphia pretty soundly today, dealing a blow …

Philadelphia pregame

I thought there was a little bit of swagger in coach Mike Sullivan’s pregame comments before the Penguins take on the Flyers in a big game this afternoon in South Philadelphia. Here, see if you agree. Sullivan was asked if he stresses …

Battle of Pennsylvania

First off, check out the weekly Penguins Roundtable podcast with Ken Laird, Bill West and myself. OK, starting tomorrow, the Penguins will play three of their 12 remaining games this regular season against the Flyers. The potential for great rivalry …
