'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.

Exhibition games usually are not reasons for excitement. However, the Penguins cannot wait for theirs against Columbus on Saturday at Consol Energy Center.

The crowd will consist mostly of children, as the game marks the Penguins' third Free Game for Kids.

Started in 2010, the first season at Consol Energy Center, the Free Game for Kids has been an annual event — the NHL lockout wiped out exhibition games last season — thanks to Penguins CEO David Morehouse.

The Penguins and their charitable foundation have distributed tickets to regional youth hockey clubs and other children's organizations.

The 4 p.m. game will be televised by Root Sports. The cable network wanted to air the exhibition game and the Pirates-Cincinnati Reds game at 7 p.m.
