PHN Extra: ‘We’ve Got To Hold That Stuff To Our Heart’

CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. – Two things are tugging at the Pittsburgh Penguins as they get ready to host the New York Islanders at PPG Paints Arena on Tuesday.

It’s their first home game since a 4-0 road trip through Canada that could have lasting positive effects on the season.

It’s also their first home game since a mass shooting Saturday at Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill area of Pittsburgh that left 11 people dead.

“I think we’ve got to hold that stuff to our heart, but we’ve got to just keep playing hockey,” Penguins winger Bryan Rust said Monday after practice at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex.
