Like it or not. The Penguin can’t consistently beat good teams. No one has any evidence to prove otherwise. Save your excuses of back-to-back games, or the refs not gving the Pens a call. That doesn’t matter.
All that matters is that everytime in the last two months when the Penguins have had a game that should be a little bit of a preview of playoff hockey, they have basically...
Thomas Greiss at Training Camp (Photo courtesy of PittsburghPenguins.com)We have seen it time and time again. A team has an A+ starting goaltender and does well in the regular season only to fall short in the playoffs -- this article is not solely directed at the Pittsburgh Penguins since 2009. Maybe the goalie starts to struggle in the playoffs, but the team is reluctant to turn...
The Penguins were coming off their worst defeat. The Leafs coming off their best win. Something gave, and as usual it was the Maple Leafs goaltending. Thomas Greiss outplayed Jonathan Bernier and the Pens escaped Toronto with a 2-1 win.
Pascal Dupuis scored twice to lead the Pens. Dion Phaneuf sucks.
SAVE OF THE GAME
With the Leafs somehow on the powerplay, Griess made a sick stick...
Thomas Greiss has started two games. Both have featured the Penguins going up in dominating fashion, and then falling off in the third period. The first game didn’t end well. This one did. Save about 10 minutes in the third period, and this was actually a completely dominating win for the Penguins.
The Penguins power play scored once, but it was the mere threat of it that basically...

*Preseason Intro* Welcome back everyone! With a new season, new coach, new GM, and new hope (at least temporarily), I’ll be working on some new formats for the postgame thoughts before the regular season arrives. Ideas and suggestions are very much encouraged; let me know what you want to see and read about! Goal assessments and descriptions will return when...
PITTSBURGH -- Thomas Greiss stopped 23 shots -- including all 15 he faced over the final two periods -- and the Phoenix Coyotes edged the sloppy Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 on Tuesday night.
David Moss, Antoine Vermette and Mikkel Boedker scored for the Coyotes, who never trailed while picking up two vital points in the chase for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
Sluggish in the first period, Phoenix scored its first two goals on fortunate bounces in the second.
Once the Coyotes got rolling, there was no stopping them, particularly the way Thomas Greiss was turning away shots.
Greiss stopped 27 shots, Lauri Korpikoski had a goal and two assists, and the Coyotes rolled to a 6-0 victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.
