    Pittsburgh Pirates ace Gerrit Cole hasn't had the best week at work. After taking the loss in Monday's series opener against the Chicago Cubs, he watched his squad get swept in dominant fashion.  

    That's not good. However, like all people who find happiness in life, Cole was able to leave his work troubles behind and enjoyed a fun night of hockey with his fellow Pittsburgh Penguins fans.
