Penguins and Bruins Went Black & Blue Over Black & Gold

What comes to mind when you hear the words “black and gold?” Most people will probably answer with either the Penguins, Pirates, Steelers, or even the Wiz Khalifa song “Black and Yellow.” These colors have become synonymous with the sports teams that make up the “City of Champions”, but in January 1980, the Boston Bruins tried to put a stop to the Penguins’ use of the black and gold color scheme. The result was one of the sillier feuds in NHL history. The Penguins’ Road to Bl...

Val James: The Forgotten Trailblazer

Until Jordan Greenway took to the ice for the US men’s ice hockey team in Pyeongchang, the program had never had an African-American player on its Olympic roster. It’s shocking it took so long, even with players such as Mike Grier, Seth Jones, Dustin Byfuglien and Kyle Okposo. But, what’s even more shocking is that it took more than 23 years after Canadian-born Willie O’Ree broke the NHL’s color barrier in 1958 for an African-American to break into the league. His name isn’t heralded. It’s not o...
