I’M BETTER WITH BLUE

When Randy Tabita wanted

Real Member Randy Tabita

something more than the regional health plan his work provided, he searched for one that offered affordability, a broader network, and a history of reliable care. And found just what he needed at a nearby Highmark Direct Store. That’s why members like Randy, and generations of members across Pennsylvania, are better with Blue.

GAME NOTES BY: BOB GROVE

THE SERIES

The Penguins tonight open their Eastern Conference Second Round series against the New York Rangers, the fifth playoff meeting between the teams . The Penguins have won all four previous series; New York is the only team Pittsburgh has faced more than two times in the post-season without ever losing a series . . . The Penguins swept the Rangers in the 1989 Patrick Division Semifinals; eliminated them in six games in the 1992 Patrick Division Finals; beat them in five games in the 1996 Eastern Conference Semifinals; and eliminated them in five games in the 2008 Eastern Conference Semifinals . . . The teams have played 20 playoff games, with the Penguins winning 16 . Pittsburgh is 9-2 in 11 home playoff games against New York, having won four straight since a Game Two loss in 1996 (3-6); the Penguins are 7-2 on the road, having lost their last playoff game in New York in Game Four in 2008 (0-3) . . . The only teams Pittsburgh has faced more often in the post-season are Philadelphia (six times) and Washington (eight) . . . The Penguins went 2-1-1 against the Rangers during the regular season . New York won the first game at home on Nov . 6, 5-1, behind 28 saves from Henrik Lundqvist and late first-period goals from Ryan McDonough and Derek Stepan for a 2-0 lead . . .

Penguins earned a 4-3 shootout win at Madison Square Garden on Dec . 18 as Brandon Sutter scored once in regulation and added the shootout winner after Derick Brassard forged a tie with a power-play goal with 1:46 left; Pittsburgh beat New York, 5-2, here on Jan . 3 as Chris Kunitz and Jussi Jokinen each had two goals; and the Rangers won the final game of the regular-season series, 4-3 in a shootout, here on Feb . 7 as James Neal scored with 2:56 left to tie the game before Brad Richards got the deciding shootout goal . . . Pittsburgh is 10-2-1 in its last 13 regular-season games against the Rangers and 5-0-1 in its last six regular-season home games against them since a 3-1 loss on Jan . 6, 2012 — a game which gave New York its fifth straight road win over the Penguins . . . Pittsburgh has won Game One of every playoff series against New York, which has had home ice just once, that coming in 1992 . . . After Game Two here, the series shifts to New York for Games Three and Four . THE PENGUINS

The Penguins come into this series off a six-game victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round, marking the fifth time in the last seven seasons they have advanced to the second round . No other NHL teams have done so more often . . . Pittsburgh finished that series with a 4-3 victory in Columbus on April 28 as Evgeni Malkin recorded his second career playoff hat trick and the 14th hat trick in Penguins’ playoff history . . . Both Matt Niskanen (2+6) and Paul Martin (0+8) had eight points in the series against Columbus, matching the third-highest points total in one playoff series by a Pittsburgh defenseman. Larry Murphy (10), Kris Letang (10), Randy Carlyle (9) and Paul Coffey (9) are the only Penguins with more . . . Robert Bortuzzo made his Stanley Cup debut in Game Five against the Blue Jackets with Brooks Orpik out with an injury . . . Brian Gibbons, who missed the final four games of the Columbus continued on page 8

series, was hoping to return in this series . . . Brandon Sutter, who had three points in 15 playoff games last season, had three goals and five points against Columbus . . . Malkin (3+4) and Sidney Crosby (0+6) were behind only Niskanen and Martin in scoring for Pittsburgh after the first round . THE RANGERS

The Rangers eliminated the Philadelphia Flyers in the first round of the playoffs, winning Game Seven on home ice, 2-1, Wednesday night. . . New York finished second to Pittsburgh in the Metropolitan Division this season . . . Former Penguin Dominic Moore had two goals in the opening five games of the Philadelphia series and is a finalist for the Masterton Trophy this year, given for dedication to the game . . . J .T . Miller, who played his youth hockey in the Pittsburgh area, had two assists in two games of the first round . . . New York forward Daniel Carcillo, who was drafted in the third round by the Penguins in 2003, had a goal in Game Seven along with Benoit Pouliot . . . New York features four former Blue Jackets: Rick Nash, Anton Stralman, Derick Brassard and Derek Dorsett . . . Martin St . Louis, who faced the Penguins here in the 2011 playoffs with Tampa Bay, had six points in the opening round . . . Nash had one goal in 19 career playoff games with the Rangers entering this series . . . New York finished the opening round on an 0-for-21 streak on the power play . 8

SCOUTING THE RANGERS The Pittsburgh Penguins will play the New York Rangers in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Here are five Blueshirts to watch…

BRAD RICHARDS | C One of the few Rangers already with a Stanley Cup to his name, Brad Richards has been clutch for teams during the postseason. When he won it all with Tampa Bay in 2004, Richards was chosen as the Conn Smythe winner (playoff MVP) — finishing the Lightning’s run with 26 points (12G-14A) in 23 games played. Now 33 years old, Richards’ game isn’t quite where it was back then. He had an especially rough lockout-shortened season (his second with the Rangers) and was in danger of being bought out by the team, but has since rebounded to become their leader both on and off the ice. Richards finished the regular season with 20 goals and 51 points, and the playmaking center — who quarterbacks the power play — has been one of New York’s most productive players this postseason.

RYAN MCDONAGH | D The Rangers’ top defenseman was also a member of Team USA in Sochi. McDonagh plays in every situation for the Blueshirts, including the power play and penalty kill, and logs huge minutes for the Blueshirts. McDonagh is a big, physical defenseman who excels in a shutdown role next to Dan Girardi but can also provide offense with his mobility and instincts. A former first-round draft pick of the Montreal Canadiens, the 24-year-old Minnesota native has played all four of his NHL campaigns with the Rangers. He finished the regular season with 43 points (14G-29A) in 77 games played. continued on page 23

continued from page 21

MARTIN ST. LOUIS | RW The subject of arguably the biggest trade this season, Martin St. Louis was relatively underwhelming in the regular season for the Rangers. Last year’s scoring champion finished with just one goal and eight points in 19 games after being traded from Tampa Bay in exchange for Rangers captain Ryan Callahan. However, St. Louis kicked it into gear in the first round of the playoffs and has become everything the Rangers hoped he would be when they acquired the veteran forward. St. Louis may not be the biggest guy, but he’s a warrior with the heart of a lion. He won the Stanley Cup with Richards in 2004. St. Louis was also named a finalist for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy for exemplary sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct.

DEREK STEPAN | C A member of Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma’s Team USA squad at the Olympics this February, Stepan finished the regular season with a career-high 57 points (17G-40A) while playing in all 82 games for the New York Rangers. His 40 assists were also a career high. The 24-year-old has played four seasons in the NHL, all with the Rangers — who drafted him 51st overall in the second round back in 2008. Stepan — who was a Wisconsin Badger with fellow Ranger and Team USA member Ryan McDonagh — has since developed into an integral part of this Rangers team, centering the first line between Rick Nash and St. Louis and slotting in on the first power-play unit. He’s a versatile, crafty player with excellent playmaking skills and creativity.

HENRIK LUNDQVIST | G The Penguins will be going up against one of the league’s best goaltenders in Henrik Lundqvist. He finished the NHL regular season with 33 wins in 63 games, posting a .920 save percentage and a 2.36 goals against average. He was also a member of Team Sweden at the Olympics and returned to New York with a silver medal, finishing with a .943 save percentage — including two shutouts against Slovenia and Switzerland. Lundqvist, 32, is a veteran with an illustrious pedigree, but the 2012 Vezina winner (and four-time nominee) as the league’s top netminder still doesn’t have a Stanley Cup to his name. He rebounded to finish New York’s series against the Flyers strong after being pulled in Game Six, where he allowed four goals in the Rangers’ 5-2 loss.

MARIO LEMIEUX CO-OWNER

Mario Lemieux, one of the most respected figures in National Hockey League history, is in his 15th season as co-owner and chairman of the board of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Under the leadership of Lemieux and co-owner Ron Burkle, the Penguins have become one of the premier franchises in the NHL and in all of sports, leading the way in fan relations, youth marketing, community outreach and innovative technology while consistently putting a winning product on the ice — including seven straight playoff appearances, three conference finals appearances in the past six years and a Stanley Cup championship in 2009. Known as Le Magnifique, Lemieux was one of the greatest players in NHL history from 1984-97 and 2000-06, winning six league scoring titles, three MVP awards and two Conn Smythe Trophies in addition to two Stanley Cups. A gifted 6-foot-4 centerman, he dominated play for parts of three decades despite a relentless series of medical setbacks, including multiple back surgeries and a battle with Hodgkin’s disease. He retired in 2006 as the No. 7 all-time scorer in NHL history with 1,723 points. He also ranked eighth all-time in goals (690) and 10th in assists (1,033). After retiring as a player in 1997, he put together an ownership group to buy the Penguins out of bankruptcy in September, 1999 and then returned to the ice on Dec. 27, 2000 — becoming the first player-owner of the modern era. In addition to his legendary hockey accomplishments, he continues to oversee the Mario Lemieux Foundation for cancer research and neo-natal research and hosts its annual golf tournament, which has raised more than $9 million for charity. More information is available at mariolemieux.org. Mario and his wife, Nathalie, and their four children live in Sewickley. For full bios, please visit pittsburghpenguins.com.

RON BURKLE CO-OWNER

Ron Burkle, one of the preeminent investors in retail, manufacturing and distribution industries, is in his 15th season as co-owner of the Penguins. He teamed with Mario Lemieux to buy the team out of bankruptcy in September, 1999, and together they have become one of the outstanding ownership tandems in professional sports. Among Burkle’s many significant contributions to the Penguins was his essential role in negotiations for a new arena. CONSOL Energy Center is considered one of the finest indoor facilities in North America and has attracted many national-level events to Pittsburgh. Under the leadership of Lemieux and Burkle, the Penguins have sold out every game for six-plus seasons. Burkle founded the Yucaipa Companies in 1986 and has served as Chairman of the Board and controlling shareholder of numerous companies, including Alliance Entertainment, Golden State Foods, Dominick’s, Fred Meyer, Ralphs and Food4Less. Ron is Co-Chairman of the Burkle Center for International Relations at UCLA and is broadly involved in the community. He is a trustee of the Carter Center, the National Urban League, Frank Lloyd Wright Conservancy and AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA). Ron was the Founder and Chairman of the Ralph’s/ Food4Less Foundation and the Fred Meyer Inc. Foundation. He was a member of the board of Occidental Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: OXY), KB Home (NYSE: KBH), Kaufman & Broad S.A. (Euronext: KOF), Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO), the J. Paul Getty Trust, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Music Center and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. He has received numerous honors and awards, including the AFL-CIO’s Murray Green Meany Kirkland Community Service Award, the Los Angeles County Federation Man of the Year, the Los Angeles County Boy Scouts Jimmy Stewart Person of the Year Award and the APLA Commitment to Life Award.

DAVID MOREHOUSE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER & PRESIDENT

David Morehouse is Chief Executive Officer and President of the Penguins, overseeing every aspect of the team’s operations. Since Morehouse was named President in April, 2007, the Penguins have reshaped their image and strategic vision with an emphasis on branding, fan relations, youth marketing, community interaction, corporate outreach and innovative technology. He was given the additional responsibilities of Chief Executive Officer in September, 2010. He reports directly to co-owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle. An emphasis on branding and marketing, coupled with the team’s success on the ice, enabled the Penguins to lead all U.S.based NHL, NBA and MLB teams in local television ratings during the 2012-13 season. The Penguins’ rating of 12.66 was the highest achieved by any U.S.-based NHL, NBA or MLB team on a regional sports network since 2002. Keeping with that trend, the Penguins led all U.S.-based NHL teams in website traffic and Twitter followers while continually setting new standards for merchandise sales. Youth hockey participation also is on the rise — in part because of the organization’s support for efforts such as Sidney Crosby’s Little Penguins Learn to Play program, which distributes free head-to-toe hockey equipment, including skates, to 1,000 kids ages 5-7 each year. The Pittsburgh native joined the Penguins in 2004 as Senior Consultant on the new arena project following a career in national politics that included stints at the White House, Pentagon and on Capitol Hill as well as key roles in two Presidential campaigns. He and his wife, Vanessa, have four children and live in Sewickley Heights.

RAY SHERO

EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT & GENERAL MANAGER

Ray Shero has established himself as one of the premiere NHL general managers during his tenure with the Penguins. Shero, an active member with USA Hockey and a member of the USA Hockey National Team Advisory Group, will serve as associate general manager for Team USA at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Shero, who is in his eighth season as Pittsburgh’s GM, has transformed a franchise that missed the playoffs from 2002-06 into a perennial championship contender, including two Stanley Cup Final appearances and a Cup title in 2009. Shero, who was named general manager of the Penguins in May, 2006, arrived with a firm, forward-thinking managerial style that incorporates cutting-edge methods of technology, player relations, prospect development and salary cap management. Shero cut his administrative teeth during 14 seasons as an assistant general manager with the Nashville Predators (1998-06) and Ottawa Senators (1993-98). Shero, a native of St. Paul, Minn., was raised in a hockey family filled with tradition. His father, Hall of Famer Fred Shero, played for the NY Rangers (1947-50) and coached the Philadelphia Flyers for seven seasons. Fred and Ray Shero are one of the few father-son tandems to have their names on the Cup. Shero played college hockey at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y. He twice led the team in scoring and was named team captain on two occasions. He graduated in 1984 as one of the top-10 scorers in school history. Shero, who was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1982 NHL Draft, spent seven years as a player agent before making the transition to the front office. Ray and his wife, Karen, and their two sons reside in Upper St. Clair. 38

Prior to his promotion, Botterill, 37, worked two seasons as director of hockey administration with the Penguins; his responsibilities included salary cap management, professional and amateur scouting and overseeing prospect development. His avant-garde approach and understanding of the salary cap has been a major asset for the Penguins.

Botterill was a first-round draft pick (20th overall) by Dallas in the 1994 NHL Draft and played 88 NHL games over six seasons with Dallas, Atlanta, Calgary and Buffalo.

The Grand Haven, Mich. native will be Team USA’s head coach at the 2014 Winter Olympics Games in Sochi, Russia.

In 2008-09, Bylsma penned one of the most remarkable starts to a head coaching career in NHL history. He began the season in his first head coaching job, with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, and finished the year by raising the Stanley Cup. Bylsma was promoted to Pittsburgh on Feb. 15, 2009, inspiring an 18-3-4 run in the final 25 games to climb from 10th to fourth place and home-ice advantage in the opening round.

Bylsma played nine NHL seasons with Los Angeles and Anaheim from 1995-04. He was a member of Anaheim’s 2003 Western Conference championship team.

AGREEMENT THIS AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) is effective as of the 2013-2014 season by and between the following Parties: (i) Reed Smith LLP, a leading international law firm; (ii) the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey club, a world-class organization second to none; and (iii) its league-best fans.

In consideration of the mutual covenants set forth herein and other good and

Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and especially Boston (we haven’t forgotten).

6.

Notice. Any opinions contrary to the letter of this Agreement will

be arbitrated by a very large Penguins player with a penchant for dropping the gloves and settling things his way. Results will be binding (among other things).

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, all Parties have executed this Agreement effective as of the date first above written. Let’s Go Pens.


Whether it’s providing exclusive behind-the-scenes access to a pre-season trip to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point or audio from the team bench during an Evgeni Malkin hat trick, In The Room gives fans a unique perspective on the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Emmy-nominated, all-access television show, which debuted during the 2011-12 season, can be seen on ROOT SPORTS in Pittsburgh and the NHL Network, in addition to pittsburghpenguins.com. New episodes air on or around the 15th of each month. “The idea of doing our own show developed because of the success of HBO’s 24/7, Road to the Winter Classic,’” said Penguins CEO David Morehouse. “We got a lot of positive feedback from our fans about the unbelievable access to players and coaches. Now, with In The Room, we can continue to show fans a side of the team and the sport that they’ve never seen before.” The first-ever episode of In The Room in 2011 chronicled Sidney Crosby’s return to the lineup after missing more than 60 games due to injury. The show’s staff followed Evgeni Malkin to Russia to witness his off-season workouts in his home country, and documented a unique one-on-one workout session between coach Bylsma and Kris Letang. continued on page 68

Making a splash

Of all the coatings, paints and stains we’ve made in our 130-year history, two colors stand out among the rest: Black and Gold. Our Pittsburgh roots run deep, and so does our commitment to giving back to the place we call home. And because we bring innovative coatings and glass products to CONSOL Energy Center, we’re proud to be a part of every game.

Season Two showcased the dedication and human side of a hockey player. Joe Vitale said goodbye to his wife and kids before a road trip, and two former NHL captains, Jarome Iginla and Brenden Morrow, said goodbye to their old teams as Ray Shero acquired them prior to the trade deadline. Chatter on the bench between James Neal and Malkin during a game highlighted their unique relationship, and the highs and lows of a long postseason run were revealed. The current season began with a trip to West Point. Lessons in leadership, teamwork and sacrifice were stressed — ideals that the 2013-14 Penguins would build upon. The players carried a rock to the top of a mountain — and that rock is handed out after each win to the player who has best exemplified those traits. Tanner Glass was mic’d up during a fight, as was Pascal Dupuis — when he pulled out his own tooth! “We’re able to do this because of the tremendous cooperation of the Penguins players, coaches and hockey operations staff,” said Leo McCafferty, executive producer of In The Room. “Obviously, at times, you have to get lucky. We had a microphone on Geno when he scored a hat trick. We had a mic on Pascal when he pulled out his tooth. But it’s given us an opportunity to take fans where they’ve never been before. The best part is, we never know what we’re going to come across next.”

PIT VS. NYR

SERIES STORYLINES The Penguins will play the New York Rangers in the second round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. It’s the first postseason meeting between the teams since Pittsburgh eliminated the Rangers in five games during the 2008 Eastern Conference semifinals. Here are the main storylines to follow as the series progresses. GOALTENDING

Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky may have won the Vezina Trophy last season, but the young Russian isn’t close to the pedigree of Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist. Lundqvist, 32, is a veteran elite goaltender who has been a finalist for the award four times and won it in 2012. He’s the rock of this Rangers team, giving them confidence with the way he plays along with the belief they can win any game with him back there. However, Lundqvist has struggled against the Penguins in recent years. And despite his stellar reputation, Lundqvist has yet to win the Stanley Cup while his counterpart at the other end of the ice did back in 2009. It’s been rocky for Marc-Andre Fleury in the postseason since then, but that looks like it’s starting to change as he was rock solid for his team in the first round against Columbus. Fleury surely had goals allowed against the Blue Jackets he wishes he could take back, but overall, he was excellent for the Penguins in the series. He was steady and confident, giving his team a chance to win every game and keeping the Penguins in all of them with his play. 118


With the way the past few springs have gone for the Flower, advancing to the second round for the first time since 2010 has to be big for his confidence moving forward. And the Penguins need Fleury to continue his strong play if they want to get past the Rangers. DEFENSE

The Rangers play a structured, shutdown style in front of Lundqvist. He wasn’t challenged by the Flyers until Game Six of their first-round series, as his defensemen did a tremendous job of shunting their forwards to the outside and keeping shots to a minimum. The Rangers are led by their top pairing of Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi. In just his fourth NHL season, McDonagh has developed into the Rangers’ most important defenseman as the 24-year-old literally does it all. The big, physical and mobile blueliner logs large minutes in all situations, including the power play and penalty kill. But McDonagh’s most important role is that of shutdown defenseman, and he and Girardi are outstanding in that regard. They will most certainly see the lion’s share of minutes against Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, who didn’t have the easiest time of it in the first round. Meanwhile, the Penguins could be without one of their top shutdown defensemen as Brooks Orpik missed Games Five and Six with an undisclosed injury. Orpik is the leader of Pittsburgh’s back end and was one of their steadiest defenders with partner Paul Martin until he went down. Robert Bortuzzo did an admirable job of slotting in, and he and the rest of the six-man unit will have to continue to get the job done against a deep Rangers team without Orpik if he can’t go. continued on page 121

OFFENSE

There are certainly a lot more recognizable names on New York’s roster compared to Columbus. One the Penguins have yet to see in a Rangers uniform is deadline acquisition Martin St. Louis, who is having a heck of a postseason so far for New York. Last season’s scoring champion, acquired from Tampa Bay in exchange for captain Ryan Callahan, has been everything the Rangers hoped he would be. St. Louis is playing on the first line with Rick Nash and Derek Stepan, is skating on the first power-play unit and producing accordingly. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault likes to roll all four of his lines, and right now he’s getting contributions from all of them. However, the Penguins have been getting secondary scoring as well. Before Malkin broke through with his hat trick in Game Six, the Penguins had been winning games on the strength of contributions from guys like Brandon Sutter, Jussi Jokinen and their defensemen. Both teams play a similar structure in that they want to play with speed and play defense with their offense. That means having puck possession in the offensive zone and working a cycle for extended shifts down there. That’s a big part of both teams’ success, as is the forwards getting back when play does go the other way and doing their part in the defensive zone to make sure the puck gets cleared. The team that executes this style may be the one who advances. 121

PENGUINS ELITE The Pittsburgh Penguins Elite program presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods, which is quickly becoming the premiere AAA hockey program in the area, will feature 14 teams — nine boys teams and five girls teams. The Pittsburgh Penguins Elite teams will compete in the Tier I Elite Hockey League that includes the Philadelphia Junior Flyers, the Buffalo Junior Sabres, the DC Capitals, the Dallas AAA Stars, the Phoenix Junior Coyotes and the Los Angeles Junior Kings, among others. The Elite programs, both boys and girls, are finding tremendous success on the ice as the U18 boys and U14 girls were Tier 1 Elite League Champions this past year. The U14 girls were also bronze medalists at the USA Hockey National Championships. In the National Championships all three eligible boys teams (Midget Major, U14, U16) reached quarterfinals. “Our goal is to make Pittsburgh Penguins Elite the best AAA hockey program in the country,” said David Morehouse, CEO and President of the Pittsburgh Penguins. “But it isn’t just about winning games and championships. It’s about giving these young players the opportunity to test themselves against the best competition while learning important life lessons about continued on page 135

sportsmanship, teamwork, dedication and discipline. Our partners at DICK’S Sporting Goods make this all possible, along with the commitment of an outstanding group of coaches and parents. We look forward to another successful season for Penguins Elite, both on and off the ice.” The Penguins Elite also host annually the Icebreaker Tournament during Labor Day weekend, and the Pittsburgh Girls Thanksgiving Classic, which is one of the largest girls’ tournaments in the US. “DICK’S Sporting Goods is thrilled to be the title sponsor of the Pittsburgh Penguins Elite program. At DICK’S we believe sports matter and are committed to helping young athletes achieve their goals of playing at the highest level,” said Lauren Hobart, DICK’S Sporting Goods Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. “Our involvement with the Penguins Elite program is a great opportunity for us to support the growth of youth hockey in our hometown of Pittsburgh.” A tribute to the program’s success has been the players who have moved on to compete in college hockey across the country. This past year, the program has graduated eight girls to NCAA Division-III schools and two girls to Division-I (Syracuse, Boston College) totaling 13 girls currently playing Division-I college hockey. On the boys side, several Division-I commitments have occurred over the past 12 months, including Dartmouth, Ohio State and Miami (Ohio). The Elite boys programs have 47 former players currently competing in either college or junior programs. The boys teams practice and play home games at RMU Island Sports Center. The girls teams practice and play home games at both RMU Island Sports Center and Shadyside Academy. Both boys and girls also hold practices and games at the CONSOL Energy Center. 135


TABLETS IN EDUCATION The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation is proud to announce the launch of an innovative new program, Tablets in Education. This new educational program utilizes the Kindle Fire HDX, the latest in tablet technology, to motivate students to learn through unique educational apps and programs. Through a partnership with the Allegheny County Intermediate Unit (AIU3), the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation was able to provide 1,200 free tablets — 20 per school — as well as mass charging stations, Kindle FreeTime Kid-Proof Cases and more than $100,000 in educational apps to 60 schools in Allegheny County. “The opportunity to positively impact so many students in Allegheny County makes this our most important educational program to date,” said Dave Soltesz, president of the Penguins Foundation. “By providing these free tablets, we believe we can help teachers stimulate the learning process — not only enhancing students’ interest in reading and math but also helping to develop critical thinking, writing and communication skills.” One of the schools benefitting from the new program is Avalon Elementary School in the Northgate School District. On March 13, 2014, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation launched the program from the school in Miss O’Donnell’s fifth grade classroom. The students showed how they are benefiting from the apps on the devices and how they will be used in their day-to-day class work. For more information about Tablets in Education, visit pittsburghpenguinsfoundation.org or contact us at info@pittsburghpenguinsfoundation.com.

HOCKEY IS FOR EVERYONE For years Western Pennsylvania youth sports have been dominated by the likes of football, basketball and baseball. Recently however, the region has begun to see a change in preference and participation in sports. Hockey is rapidly becoming the most popular and fastest growing sport in the area. Success seen with the Pittsburgh Penguins on the NHL ice has surely created a demand and a certain excitement around the game, however the popularity of hockey goes well beyond the wins and world class talent the Penguins possess. A genuine love for the game is starting to sweep the area. Kids are beginning to play hockey at younger and younger ages thanks to the Little Penguins: Learn to Play Hockey program. This program will allow 1,000 kids, ages 4-8, to receive free headto-toe gear all thanks to the support of Sidney Crosby, Reebok and DICK’S Sporting Goods. Since it began in 2008-09 over 4,200 have been introduced to hockey through this program. The Penguins have also teamed up with the DICK’S Sporting Goods, Trib Total Media and the YMCA to create the YMCA Jr. Penguins program which introduces children to the sport through ball hockey. To this point well over 3,100 children have learned and participated in organized ball hockey at local YMCAs. Recently the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and Highmark have partnered together for Project PowerPlay, which will build 12 continued on page 140

dek hockey rinks throughout Allegheny County over a three-year period and allow local residents to play dek hockey for free. Dek hockey is becoming a great way to learn and play hockey without having ice, and was also vital in the development of current Penguins forward Beau Bennett who grew up in sunny California. On top of partnering with the Pennsylvania Amateur Hockey League (PAHL) and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League (PIHL), the Penguins and the Penguins Foundation have looked to support various hockey programs around the Pittsburgh area. The Steel City Icebergs is an adaptive ice hockey program for both children and adults with developmental disabilities such as autism, down syndrome and traumatic brain injuries. The Pittsburgh Mighty Penguins is a local sled hockey team, which is an internationally recognized event in the Paralympic games. The Mighty Penguins registered three teams on its roster that include youth, junior and adult players. Pittsburgh Ice (Inclusion Creates Equality) provides children, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, to play ice hockey at no cost and experience such a great game. Defending the Blue Line is a nonprofit organization created by soldiers with the spirit of keeping hockey alive for the children of our nation’s military heroes. It ensures that children of military members are afforded every opportunity to participate in the game of hockey by providing free equipment, hockey camps and financial assistance. 140

We’re always planning for the future.


PROJECT POWER PLAY The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation’s Project Power Play initiative continues to flourish! Six new rinks have been built toKIDS WILL CHANGE THE FUTURE date, with four more coming by the end of 2014. The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation, Highmark, the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County began this $2.25 million project in the summer of 2012 in Phase 1 of a three-year plan. By 2015, 12 facilities in the Pittsburgh area will house new dek hockey rinks. The goal of this project is to introduce children to the game of hockey at the grass roots level and give them a free venue to play, while keeping them active and having fun. The facilities, 155’ x 75’, are multi-sport courts and each includes a premier dasherboard system like those used in the NHL, players’ benches with shelter, penalty box, scorer’s table, scoreboard, goals and start-up dek hockey equipment. If you are interested in donating to the Project Power Play program or for more information, visit pittsburghpenguinsfoundation.org or contact us at info@pittsburghpenguinsfoundation.com. 143

PENGUINS RADIO NETWORK PLAY-BY-PLAY ANNOUNCER

One of the most unique broadcasters in professional sports, Mike Lange is calling games in his 39th season with the Penguins, handling radio play-by-play on the club’s flagship station, 105.9 FM The X and the Penguins Radio Network. Known for his creative and colorful style, including trademark phrases such as “Buy Sam A Drink And Get His Dog One, Too,” Lange was awarded the Foster Hewitt award by the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001. Lange’s relationship with the Penguins began in 1974-75, when he broke into the NHL as a radio play-by-play man. He left for one season, but returned in 1976-77 and has been a fixture on the Penguins’ scene ever since. Lange did radio exclusively until 1979, when games were simulcast on radio and TV. He served as the television voice of the Penguins through 2005-06, before returning to the radio booth in 2006-07. A native of Sacramento, California, Lange earned a degree in broadcasting from Sacramento State University before starting his career as the voice of the Phoenix Roadrunners (WHL) in 1970. He also served as the play-by-play voice of the San Diego Gulls (WHL) in 1973-74 before joining the Penguins. In addition to his tenure with the Penguins, Lange handled play-by-play duties for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1986-87. A well-known member of the Pittsburgh community, Lange makes numerous personal appearances throughout the year and is actively involved in charity work.

PHIL BOURQUE PENGUINS RADIO NETWORK COLOR ANALYST

Two-time Stanley Cup Champion Phil Bourque is in his 11th season on the Penguins broadcast team, serving as color commentator alongside Mike Lange. A gritty winger/defenseman, Bourque was signed by Pittsburgh as a free agent in 1982, and went on to record 164 points (75G-89A) in 344 regularseason games with the Penguins between 1983 and 1992. For his career he totaled 199 points (88G-111A) in 477 games with the Penguins, New York Rangers and Ottawa. Since retiring from professional hockey in 2000, Bourque has co-hosted Penguins pre- and post-game shows on the Penguins Radio Network and worked as a contributor for ROOT SPORTS’ coverage of Penguins hockey.

HERE’S HOW REALIGNMENT AFFECTS PITTSBURGH’S SCHEDULE…

In total, the Penguins will play regular-season games this season — 30 against their seven fellow Metropolitan Division foes; 24 games against the eight teams from the Atlantic Division; and 28 games against the 14 teams from the Western Conference.

Pittsburgh will play five games against the Philadelphia Flyers (3 home; 2 away) and Columbus Blue Jackets (2 home; 3 away), and four games (2 home; 2 away) against the other five Metropolitan Division teams.

The Penguins will play three games each against the eight teams in the Atlantic division — either two at home and one away or once at home and twice away. Teams that the Penguins will play twice at home and once away are Buffalo, Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. Pittsburgh will play Boston, Detroit, Florida and Tampa Bay just once at home.

And finally, for the first time since the 1997-98 season, the Penguins will play each of the 14 Western Conference teams once at home and once on the road. continued on page 162

METROPOLITAN DIVISION

The pre-realignment Atlantic Division was known for being one of toughest and most competitive divisions in the NHL, as it was not uncommon to see all five teams battling until the end to make the playoffs every year (and usually at least three advancing). Plus, the gap between the first-place team and the last-place team tended to be relatively small, especially compared to the gaps in other divisions. It also had some of the most intense rivalries, starting with the legendary, hate-filled and bitter one between cross-state teams Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. And there was no love lost between the Penguins and any of the other teams in the division, either. It doesn’t look like the new Metropolitan Division will be any friendlier. All of the rivalries from the former Atlantic Division, of course, will stay intact. The Capitals are already a current rival of Pittsburgh with all of the star power and history, and now that they’ll see more of each other we can only speculate as to how much more intense that will become. And there’s also more juicy potential for dislike to build between the Penguins and both the Hurricanes and Blue Jackets. continued on page 164

NEW ADDITIONS: COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS

The main reason Pittsburgh and Columbus could develop an exciting rivalry is the short distance between them. All seven of the Penguins’ Metropolitan Division opponents are within driving distance, but Columbus is by far the closest at just under three hours away. A lot of Penguins fans made the trip to Columbus the last time Pittsburgh played there on Dec. 4, 2010, with an influx of black and gold jerseys in the stands at the game. And with five games between the teams (three in Columbus, two in Pittsburgh) this season — including a home-and-home series on Nov. 1-2 — fans from both teams will venture into enemy territory to support their clubs. Call them destination rivals, if you will, with the added element of fan travel. WASHINGTON CAPITALS

The Penguins and the Capitals already have one of the NHL’s marquee rivalries. They clashed in the 2011 Winter Classic at Heinz Field, on a few Super Bowl Sundays and had an epic playoff battle in 2009 when Pittsburgh defeated Washington in seven games during the conference semifinals on its way to winning the Stanley Cup. Now that the two 164


teams (just a four-hour drive apart) are in the same division and will play each other four times this season — including a home-and-home series on March 10-11 — it could become even more intense. Pittsburgh and Washington developed such a strong rivalry because of star power. The Penguins have Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin while the Capitals have Alex Ovechkin. They are the three biggest superstars in the league and have been battling for individual honors (in addition to team glory in their playoff series) since Ovechkin broke into the NHL during the 2005-06 season. It’s always exciting to watch when they all go head-to-head. The Penguins-Capitals rivalry flared up in the 90s when the two teams met seven times in 11 years — with the Penguins winning in six of those series. That hatred has been carried over during the Ovechkin-Crosby/Malkin era. And it should only get hotter as the teams enter the same division.

CAROLINA HURRICANES

Pittsburgh’s rivalry with Carolina may not be as developed as it is with Washington, but it could get there. If it does, we’d bet it’s because of the Jordan Staal — Brandon Sutter trade. Staal, who played his first six NHL seasons with Pittsburgh, was a key member of the Penguins’ 2009 Stanley Cup championship team and was part of the successful three-center model with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. But Staal wanted to play with his brother Eric, so the Penguins traded Jordan to Carolina at the 2012 NHL Draft for Sutter and prospects Brian Dumoulin and Derrick Pouliot. Staal signed a 10-year, $60-million deal with the Hurricanes a few days later. Staal came to Pittsburgh just once in his first season with Carolina, in the final game of the regular season. The sellout crowd at CONSOL Energy Center gave him an extended standing ovation as a tribute played on the video board, and Staal was emotional as he stood up and acknowledged the fans he had played in front of for his first six seasons. But now that that’s over and done with, don’t expect things to remain as friendly and cordial as they are now. Staal is an important part of Penguins history, but not their present or future. He’s a competitive guy, and the Hurricanes expect a lot from him. He’ll want to do everything he can to lead his team to success in the future, including beating his former team whenever possible. continued on page 168

PLAYOFFS

Realignment doesn’t just affect the regular season; it affects the postseason as well. The playoffs are now division-based and with an added wild-card system. The number of total playoff spots, 16, remains the same — eight for each conference. That means the Western Conference will have 14 teams competing for eight playoff spots, while the Eastern Conference will have 16 teams competing for eight playoff spots. It will likely end up being a tighter race for Pittsburgh and the rest of the Eastern Conference. The top three teams in the Metropolitan Division and the top three teams from the Atlantic Division will fill the first six spots. The remaining two spots (Nos. 7 and 8) will be filled by the wild-card teams, who are the next two highest-placed finishers in each conference based on regular-season points and regardless of division. That means the Metropolitan Division could send five teams to the playoffs while the Atlantic sends three; or vice versa. Or they could each send four. Regardless, the playoffs are now heavily based on divisional standings while before, only the division winner got a guaranteed spot in the playoffs. EASTERN CONFERENCE TOP

NHL.com explained the seeding best… “The seeding of the wild-card teams within each divisional playoff will be determined on the basis of regular-season points. The division winner with the most points in the conference will be matched against the wild-card team with the fewest points; the division winner with the second-most points in the conference will play the wild-card team with the second fewest points. The teams finishing second and third in each division will play in the first round of the playoffs. The winners of each series will play for berths in the conference championship series.” So while the wildcard system makes it possible to play a team in the opening round of the playoffs outside of the division, it’s more likely that teams will be playing the first two rounds against divisional foes. And we’ve seen first-hand the last few years just how intense that can be.

The UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex, scheduled to open in Cranberry in the summer of 2015, will feature two sheets of ice and serve as the Penguins’ official practice rink — but, as Penguins CEO David Morehouse said, “it will be much more than a hockey rink.” The complex will be the first medical facility in the country to focus specifically on hockey-relating training, rehab and injury prevention. “It will be a one-of-a-kind, world-class facility right here in Cranberry,” Morehouse said. UPMC will build the 180,000 square foot facility at an estimated cost of $70 million. The complex will offer expert care in orthopaedics, concussion management, physical and occupational therapy, imaging and sports-performance training. “The facility that we are planning here will comprise almost 50,000 square feet of clinical space for world-class orthopaedic and therapy programs,” said Liz Condordia, UPMC executive vice president. continued on page 173

The two sheets of ice also will be home to the Penguins Elite youth hockey program as well as amateur and high school games, adult hockey leagues and instructional camps and clinics. In addition, the facility will offer public skating and figure skating and will host community events. Romoff praised Lemieux, the Hockey Hall of Famer, for his special relationship with UPMC. “We have the Austin’s Playrooms in seven of our hospitals, which Mario and his foundation have provided … the Lemieux sibling complex at Children’s Hospital, and, most recently, our fabulous, completely brand-new Mario Lemieux Center for Blood Cancers,” Romoff said.

2013.14 PENGUINS

REGULAR SEASON RECAP BY: ADDISON SMITH

Here is a look back at your 2013-14 Pittsburgh Penguins: METROPOLITAN DIVISION DOMINANCE

In the first year of the NHL’s realignment plan, the Pittsburgh Penguins did just fine. In fact, they absolutely dominated the new Metropolitan Division — leading the second-place team by doubledigit points in the standings the majority of the season. The eight-team division consisted of Pittsburgh, the New York Rangers, the New York Islanders, the Philadelphia Flyers, the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Washington Capitals, the New Jersey Devils and the Carolina Hurricanes. While the seeding in spots 2-8 changed throughout the year, one thing remained the same, and that was the Penguins cemented firmly at the top of the division. TRADE DEADLINE

When the Penguins lost Pascal Dupuis for the rest of the season to a torn ACL on Dec. 23, general manager Ray Shero thought it would be almost impossible to trade for somebody that could fill in on the right wing of the first line with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz. But it ended up working out for the Penguins, as Lee Stempniak did a fantastic job of slotting in there after being acquired from Calgary at the trade deadline for a third-round draft pick. It only took a few games for Stempniak to start gelling with his new linemates, and he said that his comfort level with Crosby and Kunitz kept growing throughout the season. continued on page 191

“I think we’re just trying to skate and not pass up shots when you have them,” Stempniak said of his approach to playing on that line. “[Crosby] is so dynamic, he opens LEE STEMPNIAK up a lot. [Kunitz] has a great shot and it’s a pretty dangerous line with those two guys. For me it’s trying to fit in and skate and keep up, and make sure I’m retrieving pucks and then getting open areas.” Pittsburgh also acquired center Marcel Goc from the Florida Panthers for a 2014 fifth-round MARCEL GOC draft pick and a 2015 third-round draft pick at the trade deadline. He suffered a foot injury on March 27 vs. Los Angeles and was given a three-week timetable for recovery. OLYMPIC BREAK

The NHL took a two-and-a-half week break in the middle of February for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Seven players represented their countries in the games, while Ray Shero, Dan Bylsma, Tony Granato and Andy Saucier were all part of Team USA’s Olympic staff. When it was all over, four Penguins returned to the Steel City with medals around their necks. Penguins captain Sidney Crosby — who also served in that capacity for Team Canada for the first time in his career — and linemate Chris Kunitz won gold, while Team Finland players Jussi Jokinen and Olli Maatta returned with bronze. Defensemen Paul Martin and Brooks Orpik played for Team USA, while Evgeni Malkin represented host Russia.

INJURIES

This season, the Penguins still managed to clinch the Metropolitan Division with injuries to key defensemen and forwards. In total, the Penguins suffered 529 man-games lost, including lengthy absences for goalie Tomas Vokoun (blood clot), Pascal Dupuis (ACL/MCL tears), Kris Letang (stroke) and Paul Martin (leg and hand). Yet even with these injuries, the Penguins kept marching on, showing the depth of the organization. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton call ups Brian Gibbons, Jayson Megna, Philip Samuelsson, Brian Dumoulin, Zach Sill and Adam Payerl all made their NHL debuts. They were joined by other Wilkes-Barre call ups Simon Despres, Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond, Andrew Ebbett, Chris Conner, Nick Drazenovic and Harry Zolnierczyk. At one point this season, the Penguins were without all top-4 defensemen at the same time with Letang, Martin, Brooks Orpik and Rob Scuderi all out with different injuries. The Penguins also lost center Evgeni Malkin for the last 11 games of the regular season with a foot injury. One of the more devastating injuries for the team came on Dec. 23 against Ottawa when Dupuis left the game with a torn ACL/ MCL. He missed the rest of the regular season and most likely the entire postseason. The Penguins also had another scare when it was reported that Letang had a stroke. He missed 10 weeks and returned on April 9 against Detroit at home to a roaring round of applause from the fans at CONSOL Energy Center. continued on page 195

Captain Sidney Crosby won the NHL regular-season scoring race with 104 points (36G-68A) in 80 games played. He finished 17 points ahead of second place finisher Ryan Getzlaf (87 points — 31G-56A). Crosby reached the 100-point mark for the fifth time in his career, the first since the 2009-10 season when he had 109 points (51G-58A). Though, when asked about it, he didn’t seem fazed. “It’s a number, it’s nice,” Crosby said. “I don’t think you go into seasons thinking about that. It’s nice when you get the opportunity to do it.” Centering the top line, he still found ways to produce when his usual right wing Pascal Dupuis was out with an ACL/MCL tear. He saw Beau Bennett, Lee Stempniak, Gibbons, Sutter and more at right wing. James Neal even joined the top line, if only for a fleeting moment. Crosby is the leading candidate to win his second-career Hart Trophy as NHL MVP. He recorded 30 multipoint games, including 13 games of three or more points, and accounted for 43 percent of the Penguins’ scoring — the highest mark in the NHL. The Penguins were 25-2-3 when Crosby scored a goal and 47-8-5 when he recorded a point. continued on page 196

OUTDOOR HOCKEY

The Penguins participated in their third outdoor game when they took on the Chicago Blackhawks at Soldier Field as part of the NHL’s Stadium Series on March 1. Though the Penguins lost the contest, 5-1, the scene of the two teams playing through the falling snow — in a snow globe — in one of the NFL’s legendary venues gave a lasting image of the event. The Penguins participated in the inaugural Winter Classic in Buffalo’s Ralph Wilson Stadium in 2008 and hosted the Washington Capitals at Heinz Field in 2011. HOME DOMINANCE

This season, the Penguins managed to win their 100th game at CONSOL Energy Center on April 9 against the Detroit Red Wings. It was the quickest any team in the NHL has won 100 home games since the beginning of the 2010 season, when the new arena first opened to the public. The Penguins won 28 games at home, including a 13-game home winning streak from Nov. 15, 2013 with a win against the Nashville Predators to Jan. 15, 2014 when the Penguins beat the Washington Capitals. The Penguins winning streak was snapped by the Florida Panthers on Jan. 20 when they beat the Penguins 5-1. 196

PENGUINS HANDLE PRESSURE OF THE PLAYOFFS IN ROUND ONE BY: MIKE PRISUTA

One of the challenges in Round One involved the Penguins reacquainting themselves with playoff hockey and the demands that it annually extracts in time for them to play it better than the Columbus Blue Jackets and advance. Another was to deal with the pressure to do so as quickly as possible, with the weight of expectation in pursuit of another Stanley Cup that’s as recognizable around CONSOL Energy Center and beyond as a post-goal fog horn. In the end, it took six games to dust Columbus, but it wasn’t easy. The Penguins hadn’t anticipated it would be, but in many respects had constituted something of a minority opinion. “Being the favorite everybody expects, always, so much from your team, to win in four,” goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury acknowledged after the Penguins’ series-clinching, 4-3 victory in Game Six. What they had to deal with mentally and emotionally at the outset of the postseason wasn’t unforeseen. The Penguins had talked about it openly prior to the Columbus series and about their intention, in many cases as decorated continued on page 201

veterans, to meet such pressures and expectations, internally and externally, head on. “It’s the Pittsburgh Penguins,” defenseman Rob Scuderi allowed. “We have some of the best players in the world here and with that talent comes expectation.” Added defenseman Brooks Orpik: “The organization, once you win it once and with the talent we have and the commitment we have from management and ownership contractually, that’s just realistic. It’s tough to win because there are 29 other teams trying to win, as well. But [general manager] Ray Shero reminds us at that meeting in training camp every year it’s the Stanley Cup or bust. “Everybody here is aware of the situation and the expectations. Sometimes if you lose in the Conference Final or the [Stanley Cup] Final, I think that might be an accomplishment for some organizations but that’s not the case here. I think most guys welcome that challenge.” Accepting as much is a prerequisite for postseason success and the players and coaches know it. But that doesn’t mean they’re immune from buckling occasionally under the weight. The Penguins appeared in danger of potentially succumbing to such a development after an overtime loss in Game Four in Columbus knotted their increasingly competitive and combative series with the Blue Jackets at two games apiece. So they did what was necessary in advance of Game Five.

They talked openly about it again, this time with one another. “To be honest I don’t think we used the word ‘pressure,’” head coach Dan Bylsma explained. The exchanges were more about “expectations, outside perception, outside expectations on the group and bringing that to the rink,” Bylsma continued. “There were several players that talked about it, as well, in our meetings and discussions.” With the air cleared, the Penguins played what Bylsma suggested might have been two of their better games of the season in winning Game Five, Game Six and, ultimately, the series. And in doing so, they reaffirmed something captain Sidney Crosby said he was already aware of, that there’s no way to deal with pressure quite like winning hockey games. “I think there’s always pressure,” Crosby said. “You feel better when your game is where it needs to be, that’s the bottom line. Definitely there’s pressure; that probably adds to it when you’re not necessarily where you want to be. You just feel better when you’re playing better as a group. “Pressure in the room doesn’t change. I would say external factors [must be dealt with] but that’s not something that’s new to us. I mean, it’s there, let’s be honest, but that shouldn’t be any effect for how we play. “When you’re playing well, you win, everything’s great. It’s not as much fun when you’re losing. That’s hockey, that doesn’t change from year to year. It’s always been that way and it always will be that way. “I think the difference is in the playoffs you have to understand you’re going to play well and lose games. That’s normal; every team deals with that, that’s part of it. But when you’re not playing well and you want to be at your best at the right time it’s a little tougher to take. You have to find a way to be better.”

“I THINK THERE’S ALWAYS PRESSURE. YOU FEEL BETTER WHEN YOUR GAME IS WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE, THAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE.” ~ SIDNEY CROSBY

PENGUINS PROFILE:

EVGENI MALKIN BY: MARK MADDEN

When the Penguins visited Columbus for Game Six of their first-round playoff series against the Blue Jackets, Evgeni Malkin hadn’t scored in nine straight post-season games: five games vs. Columbus and four games vs. Boston last spring. But Malkin scored three times as the Penguins won, 4-3, to eliminate the Jackets. Now that Malkin got started, he might not stop. That hat-trick performance gave every such indication. Malkin dazzled the Blue Jackets for 60 brilliant minutes. Malkin’s rejuvenated confidence was on full display when he netted his third goal. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Russian got a twoon-one with James Neal. Malkin has, perhaps, too often deferred in that situation recently. Not this time. Malkin changed his shooting angle slightly, then buried the puck. It was a classic piece of finishing. The goal gave the Penguins a 4-0 lead at 15:22 of the second period. Malkin was a bit frustrated by his playoff drought. But he just kept working. “When you can’t score, you just work every day in practice,” Malkin said after vanquishing Columbus. continued on page 218

“Thanks to my linemates today, Sid [Crosby] and [Chris] Kunitz. They did a great job passing to me. When I scored the first goal, I got more confidence. I just shot the puck. I knew it’s coming again.” Malkin’s first goal came at 9:11 of the first. Kunitz found Malkin near the right post, and he whipped a wrist shot past Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. “I just shot low blocker,” Malkin said. “I saw it’s open.” Malkin’s second goal came just 4:02 later. The Penguins were on the power play, and Crosby found Malkin in the middle of the slot. Malkin rifled a wrister off the crossbar and down into the net behind Bobrovsky. Unstoppable. “It was a little bit lucky,” said Malkin. “I didn’t see the net. The puck was bouncing a little bit. I just tried to shoot.” Coach Dan Bylsma made a bold adjustment during Game Five, moving Malkin from center between Neal and Jussi Jokinen to right wing alongside Crosby and Kunitz. Most of the eggs were in one basket. Malkin and Crosby had to come through. continued on page 220

They did, though the realignment was short-lived. Brandon Sutter left the game injured during the second period of Game Six, and Sutter’s absence forced Malkin to switch back to center. But there’s no doubt the “two-headed monster” had impact. “We understand we need to score,” said Malkin, 27. “I don’t play a lot of wing. [Game Five] was the first time I played it all year. It was a little bit tough. But [in Game Six], I played with more confidence. It was a little bit better. And Sid helped me out. We talked, and we supported each other. “Sid likes to play behind the net. Me, too. If he goes there first, I stay in front. If I go there first, he stays in front. “When we play together, everyone looks to the first line. We started good. We played in the offensive zone. We scored. The whole team started to play better. We understood how important this is.” Malkin was glad to get the hat trick, but “it was more important we win the game. The series is done. It was a tough series. Now we play the second round. “But when I score, I feel so much better. I have more confidence. I hope, in the second round, I score in the first game.” On Malkin’s hat trick goal, Neal said he was yelling for Malkin to shoot. Malkin said Neal was fibbing. “No, Nealer wants the puck,” Malkin said, smiling. “When we go two-on-one, he’s yelling ‘open, open.’ But I knew I would score.” Mark Madden hosts a radio show 3-6 p.m. weekdays on WXDX-FM (105.9).

AROUND THE NHL BY: MIKE PRISUTA

WALK TOGETHER FOREVER: The

Flyers-Rangers firstround confrontation featured a couple of sets of former Stanley Cup-winning teammates on opposite sides. Rangers forward Daniel Carcillo and Flyers goalie Ray Emery won the Cup in 2013 in Chicago. And Flyers forward Vincent Lecavalier won a Cup in 2004 in Tampa along with Rangers forwards Brad Richards and Martin St. Louis.

BACK AGAIN:

The Rangers entered the postseason as one of only four teams to qualify for the playoffs in eight of the last nine campaigns. The Rangers joined the Penguins, Red Wings and Sharks in that category.

HOME SWEET HOME: The Wild’s

victories over the Avalanche in Games Three and Four in the first round marked the first time in Minnesota history the Wild had won two home games in a series. The Wild celebrated the achievement by winning Game Six on home ice.

WASTING NO TIME: It didn’t take long for Colorado

rookie Nathan MacKinnon to make his mark on the NHL postseason. MacKinnon scored at 3:27 of overtime in Game Five against Minnesota and in doing so became the second-youngest player in Stanley Cup playoff history to score an extra-session goal (18 years, 237 days). Only Dan Gallinger of Boston was younger (17 years, 339 days) when he netted an overtime winner on March 21, 1943 against Montreal. MacKinnon had previously tied the NHL record for most points in the first two games of a postseason career (seven), joining Odie Cleghorn of Montreal (1918-19) and Barry Pederson of Boston (1981-82). And MacKinnon’s three assists in Game One against Minnesota made him the first rookie ever to register three helpers in his playoff debut.

EXTRA-LARGE JACKETS: The

Penguins’ first-round elimination of Columbus knocked from the playoffs the biggest team in the Eastern Conference (average weight 205.7 pounds) and the second-biggest team in the NHL’s postseason (Los Angeles 208.4 pounds).
