  The Olympics have brought out a plethora of articles in the middle of the night, so it has gotten quite tough to keep up. Here are a bunch from over the past week: From the Tribune Review: Finland players refuse to believe Maatta is 19 years old. Ray Shero and Dan Bylsma continue along on the same page, no matter the stage. Non-Olympics: The Penguins have goalie depth that is quietly overlooked. From the Post Gazette: Saturday will bring a new chapter of USA-Russia, with memories of the 1980 Miracle on Ice drifting away. Brooks Orpik isn’t just happy be to be at the Olympics, but at the same time, he is. Dan Bylsma’s journey since being named head coach of the Penguins continues to be a dream. Evgeni Malkin just wanted a puppy growing up, but he’s gotten so much more (tell that to the puppy). Non-Olympics: Dupuis finally underwent surgery. From ESPN: Henrik Zetterberg is out for the Olympics with a back injury, providing Sweden with another big injury loss. Jaromir Jagr now has two goals in two Olympic games this year…and he doesn’t plan on stopping. Could this be the last Olympics with NHL players for a while? Asked if he’d score in every game in this tournament, @68Jagr said: “Yeah, probably.” Then he winked and walked away. — Nick Cotsonika (@cotsonika) February 14, 2014   From NHL.com: Slovenia may have lost their Olympic debut, but you can’t take away their pride. Misc: Follow @PeteBlackburn, who is second to none with Olympic gifs. Japan’s women’s team is impossible to root against. Women’s hockey is still safe in the Olympics.  PS – WATCH IT, IT’S AWESOME! The Penguins had a fantastic opening day, filled with pictures. The WBS Penguins will be wearing jerseys celebrating the 1980 Miracle on Ice team. A quick “what we learned” from the first full day of men’s hockey. Canada is no stranger to slow starts. From us at The PensNation: Annie has provided you with four Letters from Sochi thus far, make sure you keep up! The latest podcast  was recorded on Thursday night and features Josh Yohe. Meesh is a traitor and roots for Team Canada. Finally, here are our Olympic predictions. Keep up the good work, Pens!
