It's finally here, round 2 of the Stanley Cup playoffs starts today for the Penguins as they travel to Washington for Game 1 in hopes of getting off to a fast start.

2 3 I didn't get to see Saturday's game but from what I hear I am glad that I didn't. Correct me if I am wrong but this game was not won by the Caps but rather lost by the Penguins. Looking at the stats from this game leads me to believe that... More.

3 4 I don't know what to say about the game last night. The Penguins just weren't playing good on either end especially on the defensive end of the ice where they allowed Ovie three wide open shots on goal which all resulted in goals. It didn... More.

The Penguins and Capitals meet tonight at 7:00pm in what I view as a pivotal game in this series for the simple fact that the winner of this game will have full momentum going into tomorrow night's game in Washington.

4 5 What a game we witnessed last night unfortunately it didn't end how we all wanted it to. After the Penguins scored the first goal and were able to overcome 1 goal deficits twice, once in the second and again in the third it was all but set ... More.

Game 7 can it get any bigger than this, right now I don't think so. Tonight's game is win and move on or lose and go home for both teams so look for some fast paced play to start out and continue throughout the game as both teams try and get the early advantage. Pens defenseman Sergei Gonchar... More.

There are currently 6 Penguins on the roster that have played in a game that have yet to score a goal in the playoffs. Of those 6 players (5 if your not counting Alex Goligoski) do you think will score a goal first. Statistically the logical choice would be Chris Kunitz because of his offensive pro... More.

Since I missed the GameDay for game 1 of this series I will try and get things in this post that I meant to get into the last one.
