David Clarkson Out Four to Six Weeks

The jokes have already been made, but it’s hard to escape the irony of the Columbus Blue Jackets announcing David Clarkson as being out for four to six weeks.

The Penguins now await the winner of the New York Rangers/Philadelphia Flyers series. Pittsburgh held a four goal lead in Monday’s contest and […]
