Personally, I'm still trying to figure out if I'm impressed by the dedication of this Pittsburgh Penguins fan or if I should be totally grossed out.

It's better to be the hammer than the nail. This is like a collision of two freight trains. Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik lights up Senators defenseman Eric Gryba with this heavy check. So would we call this an (B.C.) Eagle on (B.U.) Terrier violence?

For whatever reason, the Penguins and Senators have met an unrealistic amount of times in the playoffs. This year's series does mark the first time they haven't met in the first round.
The matchups have delivered some great moments.
First, some honorable mentions.

Many of you may not know it, but we have a wonderful little museum here in Pittsburgh called the Toonseum. It is a museum dedicated to preserving comics and...

Orpik's first career playoff goal at 7:49 of overtime clinched the series for the Pens, setting up a second-round clash with the Ottawa Senators.
The Pens were severely outplayed in this game, yet...

The power of Christ compels you. The Penguins finally exorcised the demons otherwise known as the New York Islanders after 20 years. David Volek can now be forgotten. The demon has been passed to the side of the Islanders. And it comes in the form of………..Brooks Orpik? Yes. Brooks Orpik. It was the unlikeliest of…
