Pittsburgh Penguins Raise Stanley Cup Banner

The Penguins have officially had their 2017-18 season home opener, which means the Stanley Cup banner for the 2016-17 has officially reached the rafters. The Pens have now officially raised their championship banner for two consecutive seasons and are aiming to be raising another one this time next year. [SB Nation]

Penguins Chasing the Three-peat

The Penguins have already won back-to-back Stanley Cups, but, is a third consecutive Cup that far-fetched? Pittsburgh is still the team to beat coming into this season and while chasing a third Stanley Cup is going to be a big challenge, the Penguins are equipped for the challenge. The rest of the NHL will be very hesitant to let it happen and will put their best play forward but the Penguins are up for the challenge. [ESPN]

Pittsburgh Penguins’ 2016-17 Stanley Cup Ring

The Pittsburgh Penguins’ 2017 Stanley Cup rings are officially here- and they’re beautiful. Jostens created the gorgeous championship rings and their beauty goes without mention. The Penguins have the perfect follow-up to their 2015-16 Stanley Cup rings. [NHL.com]
