Latest Penguins Buzz

Insider Only Staal breaks out of offensive slump

Final thoughts from Detroit
I’ve been to a lot of games in my lifetime but last night’s Penguins 7-6 win over the Red Wings is near the top. Great up and down action that saw the Penguins come back from 5-2 and 6-4 deficits.
Jordan Staal broke out of his offensive slump scoring three goals and 1 assist. Last night was the best hockey I’ve seen Staal play since his rookie year. He was skating with confidence and was a force in the offensive zone especially in front of the net. Staal set up Ruslan Fedotenko for the game winner in overtime.
Michel Therrien had a lot of line combinations throughout the game
Talbot-Crosby-Satan
Fedotenko-Malkin-Sykora
Cooke-Staal-Kennedy
Dupuis-Zigomanis-Godard
Those are the lines Therrien will likely go with against the Flyers Thursday night.
The Latest on Brendan Shanahan

Whispers that the Penguins made a no risk offer to Shanahan worth close to 700k for the season. Penguins sources are denying it but that’s a rumor out there. Shanahan has a few offers in the $1.4 million range.
