Prior to the third period, Mangold was yelling at the Penguins’ players and coaches. It reportedly reached a point where security needed to tell him to calm down – several times.

Penguins captain Sidney Crosby says he noticed him yelling behind the bench but couldn’t really tell what he was saying.

“If he comes to the game and wants to do that, he’s got his ticket he can do what he wants. It’s not typically what you see, but I don’t have a problem with it,” Crosby said.

It’s nice to see local sports teams pulling for each other. But, Mangold’s efforts were ignored as the Penguins won the game 3-1 and lead the series 2-1.
