Isles Are Not Up To The Task Of Containing Powerful Penguins

After a scoreless first period, the Pittsburgh Penguins score three in the second period to blow the game wide open and cruise to a victory in today's game five of this best of seven first round series.
The Penguins got goals from four different players and ten different skaters had points in Pittsburgh's 4-0 shutout. For Tomas Vokoun, it was his second career shutout.

Isles Show Heart In Game Three But Fall To Pens In Overtime

The New York Islanders were hosting a playoff game on Nassau Coliseum ice for the first time in six years in front of a sold out crowd that was salivating for the puck to finally drop. Unfortunately for the Isles, they fell to the Penguins in overtime by a score of 5-4 on a power play goal that came from forward Chris Kunitz just 8:44 into the extra frame.

Special teams would ultimately play the deciding factor in the game, as the Islanders penalty kill only went 2-5, surrendering two additional power play goals in the first period that allowed the Penguins to get into the hockey game.

The Isles came out of the gates with energy and intensity, racking up hits, shots and goals immediately. Within the first two minutes of the game, Matt Moulson would slam home a rebound after Kyle Okposo would get the first few initial chances. Lubomir Visnovsky would be credited with the second assist.

Isles Get Manhandled By Pens In Isles' First Playoff Game Since 2007

The Pittsburgh Penguins played like a top seed in this opening game of the Stanley Cup playoff series between Pittsburgh and the New York Islanders tonight in Pittsburgh.

The Pens scored five goals, including two on the power play, to blow by an Islander squad that showed little jump all evening. All of this was done without the Pens having their best player as Sidney Crosby is still recovering from the broken jaw he got on March 30th in a game against the Isles.

March Madness

Hit the Deck, Cannon Ball Comin’ Through!

Using a Pittsburgh Pirates home run call is about all I can say right about now, because in my mind, Ray Shero has hit a home run.

On Sunday March 24th, Shero sent prized prospect Joe Morrow and a 5th round draft pick to the Dallas Stars for a third round draft pick and veteran winger Brenden Morrow. The 34 year old former captain of the Dallas Stars is going to be bringing a few key skill sets to Pittsburgh, but none more important than that of leadership and stability.

The gritty winger will see time all over the ice for Pittsburgh. He is expected to play with Malkin and Neal, as well as time on Sutter’s wing with M...

Kennedy's Snipe Ruins Stellar Game By Bryzgalov

For the second straight time the Flyers just couldn't hold a lead against the Penguins.

With 2:27 left in the over time period, Tyler Kennedy buried a wrister passed Ilya Bryzgalov to give the Penguins a 2-1 win. They rallied at the end of regulation to win their 12th straight game, stealing two points and a wash away an incredible effort by Ilya Bryzgalov.

Bryzgalov and Marc-Andre Fleury both put on a clinic, keeping the game scoreless through the first half of the game.

With 7:21 left on the clock in the second period the Flyers finally got their first power play opportunity. And with 5:51 left, Claude Giroux found the net to score the game's first goal.

Change Of Fortune

On Tuesday, January 29th, the Pittsburgh Penguins played host to the New York Islanders. With five minutes remaining in the second period, the Islanders John Tavares and Matt Moulson would both score, respectively, on consecutive power plays. At the end of the period the Pittsburgh Penguins players were booed off of the ice.  The real kicker, when the Penguins returned to the ice, the arena had been half full.

Just ten days ago the Penguins record would have indicated an average team considering they were only 3-3-0.  People questioned their toughness, their skill, and whether or not they could ever be considered a true Stanley Cup contender.  That was just six games ...
