Series Tied 0-0

Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
Remember the Pittsburgh Penguins? If not, here's a bit of a refresher.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are a professional hockey team that plays in the National Hockey League. The team had a pretty successful 2013 season. They entered the Stanley Cup Playoffs as the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. After some difficulties early on, the Penguins eliminated the New York Islanders in the first round of the playoffs. They then moved on to face the Ottawa Senators. The Penguins defeated the Senators in five games. Things were looking good for the Penguins until, one day, they just disappeared.
Time passed. Nations shifted. Society grew and evolved. And all of this happened without the Pittsburgh Penguins playing a single hockey game. It was almost as if the team, and their future opponents the Boston Bruins, had completely vanished. No one understood why this occurred.
Now, after a long and painful absence, the Pittsburgh Penguins return tonight.
How will the fans react? Will they remember team stars such as Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and James Neal? Will they even remember the rules of the sport that this team once played? After such a long absence, it's understandable if memory has become foggy. How will the Consol Energy Center handle the return of this team after such a long, long wait? Does the Consol Energy Center even still exist?
All of these questions and more will be answered tonight when the Eastern Conference Final begins. It has been far, far too long. Drop the puck already.Add a comment
