Penguins fans are, most likely, focused on the NHL lockout and all that has been happening -- and not happening -- in the negotiations for a collective bargaining agreement that will bring the league out of suspended animation.
Consequently, some might not be aware that the Penguins' farm team in Wilkes-Barre has overcome a staggering start to play some pretty good hockey.
The Baby Penguins' 5-3 victory over St. John's at Mohegan Sun Arena Saturday night was their fifth in a row overall and sixth consecutive on home ice.
What's more, it was John Hynes' 115th victory as coach, pulling him into a tie with Glenn Patrick for first place on the franchise's all-time list.
Hynes, obviously, is pretty much a lock to become the winningest coach in Wilkes-Barre history, but his victories total might not grow all that much more.
He is highly regarded in hockey circles, and many observers seem to believe that unless Hynes decides he'd prefer to return to college hockey, he's a pretty good bet to end up in the NHL before much longer.
