Where's the bulletin board? We have listened to your requests to include a bulletin board on this site, but right now we don't have time to moderate and maintain a discussion board.

More importantly, our editors feel that the best Penguins board out there is RJ Ackerman's highly popular Let's Go Pens board. It's a must-read for any serious Pens fan.

Hockey is a tough, physical game, and it always should be. But what happened Friday night on Long Island wasn’t hockey. It was a travesty. It was painful to watch the game I love turn into a sideshow like that.

FAST FACTS

Other Pittsburgh Arenas:



The Casino – the birthplace of ice hockey in Pittsburgh – was destroyed by fire on December 17, 1896. The city would have to wait for three more years to have another indoor rink – Duquesne Gardens – for recreational skating and ice hockey.

The Winter Garden was Pittsburgh's third indoor rink and was the site of Hobey Baker's last hockey game.

The only man inducted into the College Football and Hockey Hall of Fames played his last competitive hockey game at the Winter Garden in the Steel City on March 24, 1917.

Baker joined the service shortly after the United States entered WWI on April 6, 1917.

Baker died when his plane crashed in France in December 1918.
