Penguins’ Stanley Cup final rookies are winning the Tampa Bay Way

PITTSBURGH – If the Pittsburgh Penguins had one distinct edge entering Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final versus the San Jose Sharks, it was experience. Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang, Chris Kunitz and Matt Cullen had championship rings. Heck, so did backup goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who could at least spread some wisdom in the dressing room. The Sharks had only one player...

Penguins Singe Sharks in Opener

It can’t be this easy. Those were my thoughts as I watched our Penguins bury the San Jose Sharks beneath an avalanche of first-period pucks last night during Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Video: Brian Boyle mocks Kris Letang’s attempt to draw a penalty

The rivalry between Brian Boyle and Kris Letang is heated, but also extremely entertaining. After the two were sent to the box with matching roughing penalties, Boyle took the opportunity to mock Letang’s attempt to draw a penalty. Without context, that’s a pretty weird video of Boyle. Still, he’s not totally wrong as Letang has been a bit theatrical at times in the series...
