RECAP: GAME 29. Welcome back, Columbus.

The Pens have a new rival. It was born in the playoffs last season thanks to the new alignment and playoff structure, and it’s exactly what the system is designed to breed.

And that was with both teams...

What the hell happened: Jackets win Injury Bowl

This was a great game to watch, but imagine how much better it would have been if both teams had their full complement of players.

They've known that they can play this way; it was just a matter of execution and belief. The loss to Detroit has to be looked at as a blip and not indicative of what the team is. Two: The continued maturation...
