A Look At The Penguins Development Camp Prospects

6

I made my first trip to the Consol Energy Center back on July 14th for the annual prospect scrimmage, and after taking in the event and analyzing all of the participants I decided to go ahead and...

Can the Penguins Sign Shane Doan?

45

I thought it would be important to bring back the discussion of big free agent forward Shane Doan, who his agent says, has received an offer from Pittsburgh and has shown interest in playing...

Could this be the end for Brad Thiessen?

2

This most certainly means that Brent Johnson's stay in Pittsburgh is coming to an end. But what about Brad Thiessen? Thiessen is an unrestricted free agent that the Pens have until July 1st to make a decision on before he is free to sign with another team

WBS Penguins Fall Short in Game Seven, Season Over

4

A tough way to end the season, but coming back from a 3-1 deficit to send this series the distance can't be overlooked. A lot of promise and potential in these WBS Penguins that fans in Pittsburgh should pay attention to over the summer and into next season!

Nothing Beats Playoff Hockey, Game Seven!

Down 3-1 in the best of seven series, the Penguins top minor league affiliate Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL) has battled back and forced a Game Seven tonight at 6 p.m. EST against the St. John's...

Penguins/IceCaps Needs Seventh Game

1

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins have forced a winner-take-all Game Seven tomorrow night at 6 p.m. EST after a 4-2 win over the St. John's IceCaps. Only fitting the series comes down to just one game. A truly Grade A series. After the teams came out for the third period tied at two, the Penguins got a greasy goal from Zach Sill, tipping a puck past Eddie Pasquale early in the third period, giving the Pens a 3-2 lead. Paul Thompson beat Pasquale with 3:30 to play on a nifty backhander to make the 4-2 final.

Penguins Prevail in 2OT, Force Game Six

1

For the third straight game, the Penguins and IceCaps were deadlocked after 60 minutes. This time, it was the Penguins hopping over the boards and celebrating. After 92:08 of exhilarating playoff hockey, Simon Despres played hero tonight. So it's on to "the Rock" in St. John's, Newfoundland. The Penguins will get on a charter flight with the IceCaps and fly up to Canada together tomorrow. Game Six is scheduled for Friday at 6 p.m. EST.

For those Penguins fans in hockey withdrawal: Watch some highlights of tonight's thrilling double overtime game from the AHL's Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins courtesy of the team.

Simon Despres & The WBS Penguins Force Game Six

4

After 92:08 of exhilarating playoff hockey, Simon Despres played hero tonight. It was his first of the playoffs but none bigger for Despres. Ben Street and Eric Tangradi got the assists on the double overtime goal. A huge goal for Despres. He caught up with reporters after the game and had this to say: "This one is very big because we’re on the brink of elimination. Biggest goal of my career, definitely." So it's on to "the Rock" in St. John's, Newfoundland. The Penguins will get on a charter flight with the IceCaps and fly up to Canada together tomorrow. Game Six is scheduled for Friday at 6 p.m. EST. The Penguins still trail the series, now at a 3-2 deficit, and will need to keep that do-or-die mentality Friday night in hopes of forcing the decisive Game Seven.

STJ @ WBS - Game Five

1

IceCaps look to end the series tonight but the Penguins certainly have plans to fly back to St. John's for two more games at "The Rock". Series much closer than the 3-1 shows.

Penguins Even Series With IceCaps

For those looking for coverage of the IceCaps/Penguins series follow @H_P_Hockey on Twitter or go to Highland Park Hockey. I write over at Pensburgh and have been covering the AHL's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins all season long. The Penguins dominate the IceCaps tonight and win Game Two 3-1, sending the series back to Wilkes-Barre for three straight home games starting Saturday. The best of seven series is evened up at one apiece and is now essentially a best of five.

AHL Penguins Start Second Round

8

On paper these two teams are pretty even in basically every statistical category. Looking more closely at each position with my thoughts and a prediction.

All Even: Special Teams Haunt Penguins

10

The Penguins go 0 for 9 on the power play and the Bears go 3 for 4 with the man advantage. That's your game in a nutshell. The Penguins couldn't convert on their opportunities and the Bears did tonight, which is why they will play the winner-take-all Game Five tomorrow night in Wilkes-Barre. Here's to hoping I was right all along about this series. I predicted the Penguins in five before the series started. Game Five is Saturday night at 7 p.m. EST at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre.

Pens/Devils 3-17-12

It's been too long since I have posted something on PensBurgh so I figured I should get back into it after a long layoff, much like #87 did the other night! I'm making my first trip to the...

Williams, McDonald Re-assigned to AHL

1

The move to bring McDonald and Williams back gives the NHL Penguins 11 healthy forwards. I have a feeling that Jordan Staal and Simon Despres, who were given a 5 to 10 day timeline by Dan Bylsma might be ready to return to action this weekend. Either way, no need to pay McDonald and Williams their NHL salaries when they could be practicing in the AHL this week.

McDonald Re-Assigned, MacIntyre Clears Waivers

+

Colin McDonald went scoreless in two games, and should play this weekend in Newfoundland. Steve MacIntyre won't report to Wilkes-Barre Scranton (AHL) until Monday.

AHL Senators Fall 1-0 in Carkner's Last Rehab Game

The Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins held on to an early goal from Matt Rust to secure the win tonight. Bad weather caused many fans to not make the trip, especially those from the Wilkes-Barre area.

AHL Penguins add defenseman Dan Henningson

1

This was a required move after Deryk Engelland was banged up the against the Bruins. Alexandre Picard was called up to Pittsburgh to join Robert Bortuzzo and Simon Despres as a part of the NHL Penguins' top six, leaving Wilkes-Barre with only five healthy defenseman: Joey Mormina, Carl Sneep, Philip Samuelsson, Cody Wild and Alex Grant.

WBS Penguins @ Senators 11/26

After a tough shootout loss last night and frustration showing, the WBS Penguins travel to Binghamton tonight in need of a win to end a five game winless streak (0-2-0-3). The Senators lost 4-1 to the Syracuse Crunch so they will also be looking to bounce back. Full game coverage with live in-game updates on Twitter @H_P_Hockey and a recap shortly after the game.
