The Penguins have lost players; injuries, trades, and retirements but at the core of the team were a group of men. A Russian who was hunted, a French Canadian who was sent back to minors, a undrafted man who was a risk, and the man who was the savior before he ever played a game. But here they stand, four pillars of the team; at times leading, pushing, and fighting to write their own history. And what a history it is but with space for more.
Sid the Kid scores point number 1000 during Kris Letang’s 600th NHL game, in the same period as Evgeni Malkin scores a goal a minute into the game, sharing the assist on a goal made by Chris Kunitz with Kris Letang and Marc-Andre Fleury is on the other end of the ice protecting the net. This is the definition of iconic.
