Ruhwedel Fills Void on Penguins Defense

Penguins Halt Habs in OT

The black and gold seemed remarkably unfazed by the pasting they received only 24 hours earlier at the hands of red-hot Columbus. Credit Mike Sullivan and the coaching staff for helping the team turn the page so quickly. The player [...]
