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

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
