RECAP: Game 42. The Wild are a mess.

“Hey Mike, will I get fired too?” The Wild are a disgrace. At no point was this game even close. – It looked like the Wild’s controllers broke on the Pens’ opening goal. Hack Sill (yes, we are calling him Hack Sill) finally got his first point as a Penguin, and the Pens were off and running. The worst part is people using this goal against the worst team in the Northern...

Old Matt Cooke appeared on Saturday night when he cross-checked Shea Weber in the face after exchanging words with the defenseman.
