The Penguins are going vintage. Pittsburgh introduced its new third jersey, which is the same jersey originally worn by the team during its inaugural season in 1967.

Five Penguins players modeled the team's new/old jersey on Wednesday at Dick's Sporting Goods in the Mall at Robinson. Tyler Kennedy, Kris Letang, Alex Goligoski, Paul Bissonnette and Eric Godard donned the light and dark blue color pattern.

"It's always nice to have a different color, change it up a bit," Kennedy said. "I like it. It reminds you of the old times, the old Pittsburgh Penguins. It brings a lot of memories back for the fans. It's great for hockey."

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
