The Pens and their postseason success have been nothing short of the routine for the best team still alive. Even on their worst night, it is hard for me to find much wrong with the Penguins and its second straight push for glory.

While I won’t point out every accurate thread of foreshadowing I’ve bestowed upon your worrying hearts, I will go back to my view on the Ottawa series after a Game 3 slaughtering...

In the court of Lord Stanley, those who play complete serve as judge, jury and executioner.

Despite its firm grasp on faceoffs, shots on goal and hits, Nashville is just two losses away from the guillotine.  If you’re the Predators' camp, you shouldn’t be...

Jake Guentzel scored a pair of goals and the Penguins scored three times in the opening 3:26 of the third period for a 4-1 win over Nashville and a 2-0 series lead in the 2017 Stanley Cup Final.

Forget stats.  They’re just subjective numbers in a game like this.

Imagine a Salvador Dali-inspired painter trying to capture the essence of Game 1.

A team with 12 shots on goal wins a game that features eight combined goals.  A mutilated catfish hurled to the ice.  The human leg finishing +2 in scoring with a goal and an assist....

Jake Guentzel scored his league-leading 10th postseason goal, which ended up the game-winner after the Pens initially blew a 3-0 lead in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final Monday night.

With 17 seconds left in the first period, the Penguins’ Nick Bonino scored a goal to give his team a 3-0 lead.

Monday night. May 29. A date most loyal, die-hard Pittsburgh hockey fans had circled in their calendars as the night their Penguins would defend Lord Stanley, has finally come. The 2017 Stanley Cup Final is set to begin.

The original assassins of the rink, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and company will look to tackle Game 1 in the chase for the four most important wins a hockey team can corral....

In January of this year, a group of hockey “experts” took a stage in Los Angeles and declared to the public the 100 greatest NHL players of all-time.

Overall, nine players who spent time with the Penguins made it, including Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby and Paul Coffey.

Chris Kunitz is a guy people outside of Pittsburgh and Anaheim know not much about.

He’s that character actor everybody forgets the name of in that one movie, but they remember that one scene he was pretty good in.

Chris Kunitz scored in double-overtime, his second goal of the game, lifted the Penguins over the Ottawa Senators in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals Thursday night in Pittsburgh.

Nobody cares where you came from; they only want to know where you’re going next.

In Pittsburgh, Game 7 on the ice is about as routine as James Caan playing the tough guy role. “Go back home and win. Win the last one,” said Evgeni Malkin, one of the Penguins’ tough guys.

Just two weeks removed from knocking off the Washington Capitals in Game 7, the Pens will look to tackle their next winner-take-all fracas, when they host Ottawa later tonight...

Josh Bell had not hit a walk-off home run since he was a member of the Altoona Curve in 2015. He changed that Friday with a soaring shot for the left field loonies.
