Congrats on an amazing run! It took the Penguins more than 2 years to lose a playoff series! And you were there too Phil.

Not Like the Others by @AlfaM1keFoxtrot

Each of the last 3 times the Penguins beat the Capitals in the playoffs, they went into game 6 with a 3-2 series lead. Ironically though, they lost two of those game 6's.

This series versus the Washington Capitals is living up to the hype. Both teams are battling hard for every inch and game three was as close a contest as we have seen so far, but, that isn't what people are talking about the day after. Once again, the main talking point at the water cooler is the goon-style hockey portrayed by, you guessed it, Tom Wilson.

1 and 1, & the Dumoulin injury

12:30:00 PM 0
In retrospect, the Penguins were probably lucky to get out of their first round series with the Flyers with just two injuries. It speaks volumes about what the refs allow to go on when the Capitals are allowed to continue to out-Flyer the Flyers as seen in the latest injury to Brian Dumoulin.

Script flipped: Penguins ride road, penalty kill success en route to series victory

12:30:00 PM 0



 The Pittsburgh Penguins have flipped the much-maligned, “switch” this postseason.

Looking disinterested and lackadaisical while meandering an 82-game schedule, the Penguins appear reengaged as they work towards their third consecutive Stanley Cup.

Circling the Drain: Pens down 0-2 Against the Checkers

7:44:00 PM 0

Was your 10 dollar AHL Live feed loading a bit slow like mine? If so you missed the Pens only goal in game 2.  Joseph Cramarossa scored 22 seconds into the game to give the Penguins the lead. Then nothing happened for the Pens offense for the rest of the game. Jack and nothing .

Paging Daniel Sprong. If Sprong wants to play in the NHL he needs to score in the AHL. This WBS team is counting on him to score a goal a game to give them a chance at winning. This isn’t an option. Sprong needs to score.

Find this man. 


At 13:37 in the 1st Charlotte scored to tie up the game. Bizarro Fleury scored on an awkward angle shot that made everyone in WBS hate this time of year.
The Pens managed to stay out of the penalty box until late in the third. That was a huge improvement for life since WBS didn’t spend half the game killing penalties.

The Checkers play in the hilariously named BOJANGLES Coliseum, which is named after a fine supplier of foods that are fried nearly as well as the Pens are right now. 

WBS plays their first home game of the series Thursday. Thanks to the garbage playoff format in the AHL the home team opens the best of 5 series on the road. WBS will need to win 3 games in a row to keep the season alive and TK from retiring. A sweep in the first round to end the season on home ice Thursday would be a disappointment and an embarrassment. The team better show up on Thursday, I know I will.

At least the Flyers got eliminated before WBS. Cheers.  More from WBS on Thursday night.
