A game-by-game, link-by-link look at the Penguins 2006-07 season.
Oct. 5 -- Penguins 4, Flyers 0. Josef Melichar is on an 82-goal pace for the season.
Oct. 7 -- Red Wings 2, Penguins 0. Dominik Hasek heroically turns away a whopping 13 shots.
Oct. 12 -- Penguins 6, Rangers 5. This rookie named Staal scores his first career goal shorthanded. Bet he never does that again.
Oct. 14 -- Hurricanes 5, Penguins 1. "Letowski" becomes a verb:
Oct. 18 -- Devils 2, Penguins 1. Introducing Evgeni Malkin:
Oct. 19 -- Penguins 4, Islanders 3. We get our first taste of overtime magic.
Oct. 22 -- Penguins 5, Blue Jackets 3. The argument to keep Jordan Staal begins.
Oct. 24 -- Penguins 4, Devils 2. Evgeni Malkin. Uh, wow:
Oct. 28 -- Penguins 8, Flyers 2. Sidney Crosby gets a hat trick. We're not sure it counts though. It was against the Flyers.
Nov. 1 -- Penguins 4, Kings 3. Malkin shows he is for real as he wins the game and sets a modern NHL record.
Nov. 4 -- Sharks 3, Penguins 2. Malkin's first game without a point. Metallurg can have him back.
Nov. 6 -- Ducks 3, Penguins 2. Penguins show they can play with the big boys.
Nov. 18 -- Penguins 3, Rangers 1. Recchi gets two goals.
Nov. 20 -- Penguins 5, Flyers 3. LeClair gets what is probably the last goal in his career.
Nov. 22 -- Bruins 4, Penguins 3. Remember when the Penguins stunk at shootouts?
Nov. 24 -- Islanders 3, Penguins 1. Nothing says, "The day after Thanksgiving" more than afternoon hockey.
Nov. 25 -- Rangers 2, Penguins 1. Two old friends come back to Pittsburgh to ruin the day late. Penguins slip to 0-2-1 with Crosby out of the lineup injured.
Dec. 11 -- Penguins 5, Capitals 4. After spotting the Capitals four goals, the Penguins make a brilliant comeback and win in a shootout. This is personally our favorite game of the season because we hit the road and went to the contest.
Dec. 19 -- Blues 4, Penguins 1. Perhaps it was the stale nachos or the flat Coke or the impending gaming license decision or losing to a wretched team like the Blues. Either way, we felt like vomiting after this game.
Jan. 10 -- Panthers 5, Penguins 3. What does Olli Jokinen have in common with Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle? The each own a piece of the Penguins. This would be the last time we see the Penguins go without a point in over a month.
Jan. 20 -- Penguins 8, Maple Leafs 2. Four. This was the craziest game we've ever attended. We get to see a hat trick by Mark Recchi, a penalty shot by Jarkko Ruutu, a team assist record by Evgeni Malkin, and an unofficial total of 15 fights (five on the ice and 10 in the stands). We also saw a Pittsburgh police officer poke a Maple Leaf fan in the torso with his billy club.
Feb. 3 -- Penguins 2, Capitals 0. Nine. In a contest featuring the talents of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Alexander Ovechkin and Alexander Semin, the only goal of any consequence comes from the stick of Ronald Petrovicky.
Feb. 10 -- Penguins 6, Maple Leafs 5. 13. One of the most entertaining games of the season saw Jordan Staal register his first career hat trick and Ronald Petrovicky register his first career knock out:
