Sara Civian is a fourth line appreciator who just moved back to Boston. Before WEEI.com, she covered the Penguins for DKPittsburghSports, but you might've seen her Bruins coverage on Boston.com, Bruins Daily and/or SB Nation. She's a member of Pittsburgh's PHWA chapter, and they let her stay for some reason. She was the managing editor of Onward State in her glory days at Penn State.
