The NHL Playoffs are off to a hot start and the excitement continued on Thursday night when Artemi Panarin lifted the Columbus Blue Jackets to victory over the Washington Capitals with an overtime game-winner in Game 1 of their opening-round series.
Food of the Day
With the Pittsburgh Penguins returning to action on Friday and following their dominant 7-0 victory over the rival Philadelphia Flyers in Game 1 of their opening-round series in the NHL Playoffs which included a hat trick from star Sidney Crosby, it’s the perfect time to embrace a Pittsburgh staple: the Primanti Bros. sandwich. Think of everything you could ever want from a sandwich, then add some crispy fries and coleslaw on top to expand the flavor profile. Plus, if you ask nicely, they will even toast the bread for you which really puts the sandwich over the top. You can’t go wrong by throwing back one of these, especially if you’re a Pens fan ready for another dominant video.
