CRANBERRY, Pa. -- It's Jack Johnson's fault that the Penguins didn't qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs until the waning hours of the 2018-19 season.
He's the reason they only lasted four games against the Islanders, too.
And that mess your puppy made on the carpet?
Yep, Johnson's responsible for that.
Same with the looming threat of a recession.
Indeed, a sizable segment of the Penguins' fan base believes Johnson is culpable for pretty much anything -- and everything -- that doesn't go well in this particular corner of the universe.
