'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.

The Penguins will open the Stanley Cup playoffs against their newest regional rival.

The Columbus Blue Jackets, in their first season in the Eastern Conference, have drawn the second-seeded Penguins for a best-of-seven series in Round 1.

Although the NHL has not finalized playoff details, Games 1 and 2 tentatively are planned for Consol Energy Center on Wednesday and Friday nights. Tickets remain available.

The Penguins never have faced Columbus in a playoff series. The Blue Jackets are making only their second postseason appearance.

The Penguins are 10-2-1 against Columbus dating to captain Sidney Crosby's rookie season (2005-06), and they have won the past five games at Nationwide Arena, including three this season.
