Ron Cook: Penguins try to keep past failures in the past

So I hear San Jose Sharks defenseman Paul Martin keeps telling his teammates that the Penguins are very capable of blowing a 3-1 series lead in the Stanley Cup playoffs. You can’t blame him for that, right? It’s the truth. Martin played for the Penguins in 2011 when they lost a 3-1 lead against Tampa Bay and in 2014 when they wasted a 3-1 lead against the New York Rangers.

Thousands of people were camped out in front of the Consol Energy Center on Thursday evening to watch the game on big screens set up outside, and it was black and gold Penguins jerseys everywhere downtown. Some national experts suggested to The Chronicle that the...

Stanley Cup Final 2016: Leave Paul Martin alone, you bullies

Alternate title: One bad play does not a game make Following an important playoff loss we all process the grief in different ways. Last night, one too many Sharks fans said Paul Martin "had a bad night," for my liking. By that, I mean I saw at least five — I won't link to their tweets here, because that would be an objectively crappy thing to do, so just take my word for it. If you, like me and (I hope) the majority of those who watched game one feel Martin actually played a fabulous game, you're free to go. You can use send this post on to your friends and co-workers who used recency...

Ron Cook: Fleury's season can still have a happy ending

I stopped Trevor Daley Sunday as he limped out of Consol Energy Center on crutches and told him how I sorry I was for him. He had played a leading role in the Penguins’ successful run to the Stanley Cup final, but his season ended in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference final against the Tampa Bay Lightning when his left ankle was broken.
