The Stanley Cup Final is 2-2 heading into tonight's game, so by no means is the series lost. The Penguins still have home ice advantage and haven't lost a game at home this series. But there are some naysayers out there blaming the captain for why the Pens went from 2-0 to 2-2 in this series. That's ... dumb. Our resident NHL expert Dave Lozo points the blame elsewhere. Actually, a lot of elsewheres. See who he thinks should shoulder the blame if the Pens lose the Cup.
The Internet has a lot of thoughts about what went wrong for the Penguins in Nashville, including one ESPN writer who wants to blame Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin if the Pens lose the Cup. Others point to the paper thin defense, average-at-best goaltending, growing number of injuries and the lack of scoring from most of the wingers as things the Pens need to fix for tonight's Game 5. Thankfully, DJ Gallo is here to sift through all the Internet's tips, some of which might actually help. Hopefully Mike Sullivan is reading.
Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto and Paris Mayor Ann Hidalgo paired up for an op-ed in the New York Times to tell President Donald Trump he can't pit the cities against each other. The duo wrote that they both want to do the best for their citizens and the planet. "That means putting aside parochial politics and embracing the global challenge of fighting climate change," they wrote in the Times. Touting Pittsburgh's green technology accomplishments and the sustainability of Paris, they'll stick to the Paris Agreement, "which guarantees the future health and prosperity of both of our cities — and every other city in the world."

Nick Hartley, Pittsburgh's first historical document archivist, has been on the job less than a year. And he's already found something that was missing for 122 years, reported TribLive. The book with the only official record of Pittsburgh's first nine years as a borough, from 1794 to 1803, was on the other side of the state. And as soon as Hartley found out, he "drove to Philadelphia and got it."
