About Pittsburgh Penguins
Hockey is no joke in the city of Pittsburgh. The Pens have now won five Stanley Cup Championships – each time with some of the best players in NHL history. In the early 90s, no one wanted to meet the Pittsburgh Penguins on the ice. With the duo of Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr, the Pens were a force in the NHL. The Penguins won the Stanley Cup in 1991 and 1992. They were hungry for more but were unable to attain the cup again in the 90s even with all of that talent.
Another duo worthy of the Hall of Fame would lead the Penguins back to the winner's circle. Evgeni Malkin was drafted in 2004 and Sidney Crosby was drafted a year later. Malkin physically imposes his will every night and is a very skilled player. Crosby on the other hand, is an all-around talent that can affect the game in countless ways. Crosby and Malkin led the Pens to a Stanley Cup Championship in 2009 and expectations were at an all-time high for the franchise. After a few disappointing playoff performances, doubt was starting to creep in. The players were questioned, and it was thought the Penguins had missed their window to win another championship. That doubt fueled the Penguins and they breezed past the competition in the 2016 NHL playoffs. The Penguins defeated the San Jose Sharks in six games in the Stanley Cup Finals to secure the fourth championship trophy for the franchise. Their success did not stop there. The next season the Penguins beat the Nashville Predators in six games to win their fifth Stanley Cup. Crosby was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the playoffs for the second consecutive year.
The Pittsburgh Penguins were able to return to the playoffs in the 2017-18 season. They finished the regular season with a record of 47-29-6 which allowed them to qualify for the playoffs. In the first round of the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs the Penguins went up against the Philadelphia Flyers. The two Pennsylvania hockey teams fought it out, but it was the Penguins who ultimately won the series in six games. Advancing to the second round, the Penguins faced the Washington Capitals. Unfortunately, the Caps came out on top, defeating the Penguins in six games. The Pittsburgh Penguins will be returning for their 52nd season in the NHL. Their season will begin on October 4th with a rematch against the Washington Capitals at PPG Paints Arena. Throughout the season the Pens will have to face their other Metropolitan Division rivals including the Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Blue Jackets, New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders, and New York Rangers.
