Brock McGinn didn’t score a goal in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 4-1 victory against Ottawa Friday night at PPG Paints Arena. Didn’t set one up, either. For that matter, he didn’t even record any of the Penguins’ 44 shots on Senators goalie Cam Talbot.
Tristan Jarry said a few days ago that he hoped to be back in top form “the second I step on the ice” for the Pittsburgh Penguins. He didn’t necessarily intend that to be a prediction and that’s too bad, because it would have been a pretty good one.
Two of the Pittsburgh Penguins' key pieces rejoined the roster Friday as starting goaltender Tristan Jarry was activated from injured reserve and defenseman Jeff Petry was activated from long-term injured reserve.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are getting both Jeff Petry and Tristan Jarry back, activating the pair from injured reserve today. To make cap and roster room for their return, Kris Letang has been moved to long-term injured reserve, Jan Rutta has been moved to regular injured reserve, and Dustin Tokarski and Taylor Fedun have been reassigned to the AHL.
Kasperi Kapanen was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round (22nd overall) in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. He’s a hockey blueblood, the son of Sami Kapanen, who played 13 seasons with the Hartford Whalers, the Carolina Hurricanes, and the Philadelphia Flyers.
An injury of this length could be a worst-case scenario. It might not be long enough to justify long-term injured reserve (and even if it is, the Pens will have to keep room open for his activation) but keeps him off the active roster as the deadline approaches.
Take a page out of the Jim Rutherford playbook and do something wild Nothing about Ron Hextall’s career as a general manager in Philadelphia or Pittsburgh indicates that he is willing to do something like this, but a man can dream, right?
The folks at Sportsnet are playing armchair GM ahead of the NHL trade deadline by making proposals for Chicago Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews. Minnesota Wild d-man Matt Dumba became the latest in a trend of coaches willing to scratch big-name players.
There is much about the first three months of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ season that seems to defy logic. Or, at the very least, expectations. The way the Penguins’ power play under-performed for long stretches during the first 44 games.
OTTAWA, Ontario — Coach Mike Sullivan didn’t rip officials after the game, but he clearly wanted to let loose. Refs gave the Pittsburgh Penguins nine penalties, and the Penguins’ PK yielded four power-play goals in a 5-4 OT loss to the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are looking to avoid a third straight loss tonight, as they take on the Anaheim Ducks. The Penguins (21-15-6) are continuing to battle through inconsistencies and injuries to maintain their playoff position.
As the Pittsburgh Penguins come home after their fourth defeat from the Carolina Hurricanes, they do so with a brand new AHL call up. It was announced that the Penguins recalled forward Jonathan Gruden from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
