But Minnesota opponents are lining up against legalization.

4 Questions the Penguins Will Face After the All-Star Break

The Pittsburgh Penguins will head into the 2019 All-Star break with a 26-16-6 record, good for 58 points and fourth place in a tight Metropolitan Division. The team is holding on to the second wild-card spot for dear life despite having the fourth-best goal differential in the Eastern Conference. There’s still plenty of reason to be optimistic about the Penguins though, especially for a team that was tied for the fewest points in the East on Nov. 20. Pittsburgh is home to multiple all-time...

Emptying the Blue Jackets’ First Half Notebook

We are almost to decision February. The Columbus Blue Jackets finished off game 48 Saturday night in Minnesota hoping to ride the momentum of a win going into their long 10-day break. Instead, their offense went colder than a Minnesota winter and they left important points on the table. Instead of possibly leading the Metro, they trail the New York Islanders by 3 points. And there’s nothing they can do about it for over a week. The Blue Jackets managed to score just two goals in their last two g...
