These Are Better Days for Our Penguins

Why, it’s getting to be a habit. Following the last two Penguins games, tough guy Ryan Reaves has gone out of his way to give Phil Kessel a face wash during the team’s on-ice victory celebration. “I mugged him today,” Reaves confessed to a gaggle of reporters, flashing an ear-to-ear grin. “It was bad.” It’s good to see the big guy fitting in [...]
