Senators or Saints?

Although their logo seems to suggest they are mighty as the Spartans on 300, a Senator is actually a member of a legislative body known as the Senate. On the other hand, a Saint is what we all strive to be, especially during this time of year.  Otherwise, Santa won’t be shoving gifts down our chimney….

Flame Thrower

Well, my prediction for the Wild vs. Penguins was not even close.  I predicted 3-2; however, the Penguins annihilated the Wild last night by a final score of 5-2 at Consol Energy.  The Penguins will take the day off today (i.e. Friday) but will host the “plummeting” Calgary Flames on Saturday afternoon.  The Flames (13-16-6)…

Winning Isn’t Everything; It’s the Only Thing

Winning Isn’t Everything; It’s the Only Thing According to the late Vince Lombardi, “Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.”  The Pittsburgh Penguins have certainly taken Mr. Lombardi’s advice by winning the last 10 out of 12 games.  I am sure you could guess that those two losses were to those “pesky” Boston Bruins.  Since…

Zap Zatkoff

In just one game, the Penguins went from a 1.0 goals against average (GAA) to a 2.3 goals against average (GAA).  I know it is just one game; however, I am not overreacting. Zatkoff looks like a “deer in headlights.”  See the picture below.  LOL!   I mean, this is the NHL, if you are giving up 6 goals every time you…

Home Opener: Devils at Penguins (Game 1)

The Penguins will open their season at home on Thursday night against the New Jersey Devils.  Last year, the Devils were “kryptonite” for the Penguins defeating them 3 out of 4 times. PENGUINS 5 DEVILS 1 DEVILS 3 PENGUINS 1 DEVILS 3 PENGUINS 1 DEVILS 3 PENGUINS 2 These games seemed to expose that whenever…

Preseason: Penguins at Blackhawks

The Penguins will take on the Stanley Cup Champion, Blackhawks, on Thursday during the nightcap.  Based on their first two performances, the Penguins will probably get blown off the ice tomorrow night.  Yes, it is only pre-season; however, I hate it when teams look at it that way.  If I make a mistake during job…

Preseason Home Opener

Hockey is back again.  Even though it is only pre-season, NHL fans have been awaiting this start.  Specially, Penguins fans have been awaiting the home opener.  Our Pittsburgh Penguins didn’t fare well, losing 4-1 to the Detroit Redwings.  Sutter scored the lone goal to tie the game at one, bit it was too little too…
