'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

New York Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto will not face supplemental discipline from the NHL for his hit on Penguins winger James Neal.

Del Zotto caught Neal with a reverse-forearm/elbow during a Penguins power play in the third period Friday night. No penalty was called.

All hits are reviewed by the Department of Player Safety. Only ones deemed possibly reckless and/or intentional warrant a hearing.

Neal did not finish the Penguins' shootout win.

Neal temporarily was knocked out, teammate Pascal Dupuis said. Television cameras showed Neal mouthing, “What happened?” on the bench before he wobbled to the medical area at Consol Energy Center.

Coach Dan Bylsma said he had no update on Neal, who has not had previous concussion incidents.

The Penguins did not practice Saturday and will not practice Sunday.
