Somehow, the calendar already reads June 1 today. Always a great sign to be able to watch a Pittsburgh Penguins game after Memorial Day. So let's look back on team's performance in the most summer-ish of hockey months, from hockey-reference.

Be sure you're checking out our Sharks friends at Fear The Fin they've got a lot of great coverage going on of the SJ perspective of the series, including this article about the grief Paul Martin took over his play on the GWG, disregarding a lot of good moments for him prior to that.
