Players will be forced to battle for every inch knowing that the numbers in their contract won't outweigh those in the stat sheet. No player is above the team...

2013/14 Season Review: Derek MacKenzie

RECAP: Game One. Penguins beat Blue Jackets 4-3.

Derek MacKenzie had just scored on a shorthanded breakaway to make it 3-1 Jackets early in the second. Groans were being used as currency in CONSOL. But then the beast awoke.

Good showing not good enough for CBJ

PITTSBURGH - It remains possible, maybe even likely, that a couple of the eight first-round series in this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs will be total duds. Pittsburgh-Columbus will not be one of them.
