It's a Great Day for Playoff Hockey will be tracking the Penguins' Stanley Cup quest with constant updates throughout the postseason.
Practice took an interesting turn towards the end. A bouncing blue ball was thrown on the ice and players took turns whacking it back and forth at each other. Malkin was particularly enjoying popping the ball in the air and hacking it baseball style at his teammates.
It's a pretty boring practice here today at Verizon Center. Nothing major to report. All the guys are on the ice working on their own. The coaches are working with some players while others are doing their own thing.
The hot topic of conversation amongst the media is that appearantly Paris Hilton is staying at our hotel. I can't confirm that this is true but at least it gaves us something to talk about for 20 minutes to kill time.
Just arrived at the Verizon Center. A couple of the guys are playing soccer in the hallway outside of the locker room to warm up their muscles for practice. The Penguins will practice today at 12:30 p.m.
