Playoffs Be Damned, Fleury Is Having a Banner Season by @ToonsBrian

It has been said repeatedly - and accurately - that Penguins' goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury is the most polarizing athlete in the city of Pittsburgh. As a fan, you're either firmly in "MAF Camp" or you're just waiting for that next soft goal, that next miscue behind the cage or that next bad night to come to point out his negative tendencies.If you're in that second group, this is...

Now with the Washington Capitals, Niskanen was open with his remarks and revealed that he thinks that – to be blunt – that the decision was a poor one. Niskanen’s comments, as seen on Trib Live, were pretty candid regarding Bylsma’s firing...

What the Hell Happened: The more Mumps they come across, the more wins they see

Marc-Andre Fleury didn’t have the Mumps. But he ended up making the AVs sicks. Fleury and Colorado goaltender Calvin Pickard, who sounds like the name of a marginal villian in a Jean Claude Van Damme movie, battled to a 0-0 tie in regulation. In a game that featured a ton of action for a scoreless affair, the Penguins mostly dominated. But Pickard played out of his mind, and kept...

Blake Comeau is good again

It wasn’t exactly a trending topic when the Penguins signed Blake Comeau to a one-year contract on the first day of free agency this past July.  Comeau, who had only netted 11 goals in parts of the last two seasons, was at best seen as a guy who would primarily be filling a role in the bottom-six.  His name not being Tanner Glass or Deryk Engelland was perhaps his best...

MUMPS IN THE ROOM: Who is to blame?

By:  Ken Will (@PensNation_K) With the mumps sweeping across the dressing room of the Pittsburgh Penguins, it’s fair that we’re all asking questions about the team’s medical staff and their policies for dealing with the virus: Why weren’t the Penguins more proactive when they knew this is an issue in the National Hockey League?
