The Franchise Four. The Mount Rushmore. Four players who tell the story of an organization. In this series, I’ll be taking a look at the history of all 30 NHL squads. For criteria, I’m choosing one forward, defenceman, goaltender and a wild card from any position. Since entering the NHL in 1967, the Pittsburgh Penguins have won three...

The Penguins just might be on to something recently, as the team has won five of their last six contests. Mike Johnston's seat is cooling down as we speak and whether or not this team is 'buying-in' seems to be a dwindling concern. In fact, they rallied from a 1-0 deficit last night against the Washington Capitals, a team many expected to bury the...

It's safe to say that no one expected the Pittsburgh Penguins to be 5-4-0 through nine games played. Prior to the start of the season, there were two schools of thought.

The New Jersey Devils have claimed forward Bobby Farnham off of waivers. The Pittsburgh Penguins waived the 26-year-old forward yesterday after he found his way into just three games this season, bringing his career total to 14 games with no points.

A dominant 38-save showing by Marc-Andre Fleury and a decent (if untested) Pekka Rinne kept the score tied at the end of regulation. A Phil Kessel goal in the 3-on-3 overtime gave Pens fans reason to celebrate earning the extra point.
