As vile as it tastes. As dirty as you feel. As much as this goes against every fiber of your Penguins-fan being… Cheer for the Rangers tonight. Or at the very least hope for a mutual massacre that results in a 1-0 Rangers win. Why? Because it’s the Cup, and that’s bigger than my disdain for any division rival.
There is no such thing as a guarantee in the playoffs, and by no means has any team stamped their ticket for the conference finals, but the writing is on the wall for a Pens/Bruins series. The best we can hope for is that we come out of our series unscathed while the Rangers keep the Bruins occupied for a few more games and force them to burn a little more gas before the next round.
I’m already anxious about a showdown with the B’s. Coming up against them after a sweep if the Pens have to play one or more games while the Bruins are resting and healing up just adds to it. So send some good vibes to MSG. Just never ever admit to it. We’ll all feel better about it that way.

Many will argue that Tomas Vokoun is the hot hand and the Penguins should leave him in net. On the other side many will argue that Marc-André Fleury has experience under the pressures of Stanley Cup games and...

If you watch this enough times you can actually see Chris Phillips signing his retirement papers. What a disgusting move.

Ottawa, riding the momentum of both the victory and home ice advantage, was looking to tie the series at a two apiece.

For the first time this season, the Ottawa Senators will be faced with the reality of elimination: win Friday and head back to Scotiabank Place for game six, lose Friday and watch the season come to a close.
Winning a game on the road at CONSOL is going to be an undeniably tall-task. The Penguins were 18-6-0 on home-ice this season,...

Following a 7-3 loss at the hands (or should we say flippers) of the Pittsburgh Penguins Wednesday night, the Ottawa Senators are on their last leg, down 3-1 to arguably the NHL’s top team.
Has the Senators’ luck run out, or did they simply run into an unstoppable force they couldn’t overpower with grit, hustle and focus, similar to how...
