Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
- The Consol crowd takes its knocks, some deserved, some not, but the place was fantastic for this one, and let no one tell you otherwise. Sad to say, but they wound up more invested in these playoffs than the participants.
- That said, the scene at the end spoke volumes about the dissatisfaction with the franchise right now. Boos were loud right at the final horn. A couple of objects made it to the ice. But then, in what was most striking, all through the handshake line, the boos built up, then topped out as the Penguins left the ice. In other words, people stayed to boo.
- The Penguins gave up 15 total goals in a seven-game series and lost. If you think this was about Marc-Andre Fleury, you’re chirping an old narrative.
- We’ve almost surely seen the last game in a Pittsburgh sweater from Brooks Orpik, the franchise’s all-time most tenured defenseman. What a first-round pick, what a force, what an outstanding person.
