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 six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
