Pittsburgh Falls From Grace

The defending Stanley Cup champs suffered an early playoff exit from the hands of the same team that knocked the Caps out, the Montreal Canadians.

Not only are the Pens done, but their exit marks the final end for their longtime arena, affectionately known as “the Igloo.”

Longtime Pens fan and Pittsburgh resident Todd Donahue,37, was at the deciding game 7 last night.

“It was the end to a lot last night,” said Donahue.  “The Pens lost, but so did the Mellon Arena.  The Igloo is no more after tonight and I’ve had a lot of memories in that building.  From hockey games to concerts, that building was pretty special to me.”

The Penguins will start the season in a new building across the street next year.
