Hey remember when we said the series was over and the Penguins would win? And then remember when we said the series was over and the Pens would lose? We were totally right! That first time! The Penguins finally got rid of the rival Caps in Game 7 on the back of back-up goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, who stopped all 29 shots he faced Wednesday in Washington. He was the top star of the game, but rather than the traditional 3 stars the NHL gives out, we took the opportunity to give out more. From Crosby's return to Malkin's Game 7 prediction to The Steps to the Pens Knitting Lady to Mike Sullivan to Fleury again and again, we ranked the 30 stars of the Pens-Caps series.

The primary is Tuesday. (In case you haven't heard already.) So why not check out our #tbt that explores the building where many of those elected next week will work (or continue to work)? Watch our video to see those lesser-known spots in the City-County Building, from the top of the portico to the sub-basement.
Jake Oresick attended Schenley High School in the 1990s. Now, with the school closed and converted into condos, Oresick wrote a new book about the Oakland school's 156-year history. "It was a constructive mourning process for me," Oresick told Next Pittsburgh. "Only one chapter deals with the closing and deals with it in very precise detail. I didn’t know what I was going to find." What he found: a school with a singular history.
