Pittsburgh Penguins: Bottom-Six Point Predictions

Opinions and narratives surrounding the Pittsburgh Penguins’ bottom-six group changed drastically this past season. Early in the campaign, it looked as if that group would face the same struggles we’ve seen year-in and year-out, failing to contribute on the score sheet and an inability to provide support for Pittsburgh’s talented top-six. When Mike Sullivan took over behind...

Repeating as Champs a Tough Task for Penguins

With as fast-paced and successful as the Pittsburgh Penguins have played since their mid-season makeover, many are picking the Penguins to win back-to-back Stanley Cups for the first time since Detroit won it twice in a row during the 1990’s. But even as those believers see their numbers rise almost by the day, there’s a notion which simply must not be ignored: repeat Cup championships...

Next,'' general manager Doug Armstrong recalled. Crosby wearing the ''C'' for Canada was a no-doubter given his track record of scoring the winning goal on home ice at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, serving as captain for...

2016-17 Team Preview: Pittsburgh Penguins

To start the season, the Pittsburgh Penguins were a mess. They were sitting in the middle of their division, their studs were extremely struggling and the defense was lost without Kris Letang. The Penguins fired their coach, Letang sparked the entire team and the rest is history. Maybe the Penguins need to fire their coach every season, it's worked twice now! Sorry, Mike Sullivan...

The Steady Presence of Brian Dumoulin

Coming into the 2015/16 NHL season, Brian Dumoulin’s NHL resume consisted of 260 minutes of even-strength hockey. Of those 260 minutes, only 65 came in the Stanley Cup playoffs via a short-lived first round flame out against the New York Rangers. Dumoulin’s minutes in that first-round loss were soft and sheltered. He was deployed primarily against the Rangers 4th line with...

The Pittsburgh Penguins Win Franchise’s Fourth Stanley Cup

Well okay. The Pittsburgh Penguins just won their fourth Stanley Cup in franchise history by beating the San Jose Sharks in six games. Sure, their 2015-16 NHL season was shaping up to look like a write-off back in December, but as I’ve mentioned before, the playoffs are an entirely different kettle of fish.

Penguins’ HBK line dominates the Stanley Cup playoffs
