This is typical Penguins hockey. They'll get away with it this year because of the short season, but I expect next year some team will remind them that other teams can play dirty too. And then the Penguins will get a bootstomping like the one the Islanders gave them a few seasons back. Then Lemieux and Crosby will go on HNIC and cry like 4 year old twin baby girls and promise to leave hockey forever. In the meantime the Penguins players and coaches will be absolutely terrified, find Jesus and in a fugue of terror decide to play clean hockey again for a little while...
