As we near the end of the first round my hometown Pittsburgh Penguins are in position to clinch their first playoff series victory in 7 years. What makes this even more satisfying is that they are playing the Ottawa Senators who eliminated them in the first round last season. It's been great watching the Pens rise from the ahes to be a legitimate contender for the Eastern Conference crown. I still need to be convinced that they can make it as far as the Stanley Cup Finals, but am enjoying the ride so far. Who are you rooting for?
