Are Penguins Doomed to Repeat History?

During a recent interview with Craig Adams, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette asked the Penguins forward if he thought history might play a part in the opening-round series between the Pens and Islanders. “I always laugh when I see historical statistics that don’t really mean anything,” Adams said. However, as Winston Churchill once said, “Those who fail to learn...
