Penguins Update: The Unsung Heroes

pp0512 It’s been a topsy-turvy season in Penguin-land. For starters, there’s a new coach and GM. Not to mention tons of personnel changes and the usual spate of injuries and illnesses to contend with. Even team captain and reigning Art Ross and Hart Trophy winner Sidney Crosby hasn’t been immune, enduring an uncharacteristically epic scoring drought [...]

Penguins Update: Rutherford Proving His Worth

pp0511 Two seasons ago Ray Shero won the NHL’s General Manager of the Year Award.
