  1. Penguins blow 4-0, come back to beat Oilers 6-4

    It was a rocky road, but the Penguins would pull off a victory. After the Penguins scored three in the first period and another one a minute into the second, Edmonton, helped by the replacement of goaltender Ben Scrivens with Richard Bachman, roared back in the third period with four straight to knot the game up. The Pens would score twice in 66 seconds to take a 6-4 lead, which they would keep for the rest of the game.

Comeau played with Evgeni Malkin and Chris Kunitz on the second line, and they were clearly the most productive line on the ice for the Penguins. They had great control of the puck throughout the game, and did an excellent job keeping the puck ...
  4. Should the Penguins look at a new backup goalie?

    For the Penguins, backup goalie has never been a position that has been filled consistently. From Steve Garon to Thomas Vokoun to Jeff Zatkoff, nobody seems to hold the position for more than a year. Backing-up Marc-Andre Fleury this season is none other then Thomas Greiss. The German has played in 13 games this season, with six wins. He has a disappointing .906 save percentage, and a 2.88 goals against average. Unless he improves, I see no reason why the Penguins should keep him.
