Pens Top Google Search Trends

The Pittsburgh Penguins were the most searched hockey team in 2017 according to Google’s search trends. They repeated this feat from 2016, making them back to back champions. (These past two years have treated these guys pretty well.)

In addition to the team getting some love online, Sidney Crosby was the most popular player searched this year. Jake Guentzel and Matt Murray also saw a serious bump in their results. [Trib Live]

Zamboni Race

Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin aren’t just good at driving the net, they pretty decent at driving zambonis as well. The superstars took to the parking lot and showed off their skills in a video on the team’s official website.

This is just one of the many challenges the team has posted sponsored by Keybank. We won’t spoil who wins, but Geno might just be a lead-foot. [Penguins Official Website]
