In advance of this allegedly colossal game tonight in Columbus, I thought I'd concoct a list of legitimate causes for concern regarding these Penguins entering the Stanley Cup playoffs. As well as a corresponding reason for why each such worry might be ... well, silly.
Hey, it's that time of year around here, right?
If we're being honest, the playoffs never really feel fun in our corner of the world. They're two months of perpetual torment followed by a parade. And even the celebration's more akin to a community-wide sigh of relief.
