His intent…remake his team in the image of the Chicago Blackhawks, a speedy, ultra-skilled club that captured the Stanley Cup by rolling four productive lines.

Penguins Update: If Looks Could Kill

Back in the 1930s, the Philadelphia Athletics had a Hall-of-Fame catcher named Mickey Cochrane. By all accounts, he hated to lose.

Snake-bitten sniper Phil Kessel snapped a 10-game scoring drought with his 23rd goal of the season. The bad news? The Penguins leaked for three goals in the final 5:30 to lose in come-from-in-front fashion. “Obviously they needed [...]
