The 2012-2013 season was short due to the lockout, but the Penguins were dominant throughout. Trade deadline acquisitions of Jarome Iginla, Brendan Morrow, Douglas Murray, and Jussi Jokinen (by eventual GM of the Year Ray Shero) added depth. The team was headlined by 2012 NHL MVP Evgeni Malkin and captain Sidney Crosby (2013 Ted Lindsay Award Winner) as they won the first seed in the Eastern Conference. Unfortunately, this year ended a bit too soon with a 4-0 series loss to the Boston Bruins in the Easter Conference Final. They defeated the New York Islanders (4-2) and the Ottawa Senators (4-1) before falling to the Bruins. Goaltending was found to be an issue as starter Marc-Andre Fleury was pulled after game 4 vs. the Islanders and did not return until game 3 against the Bruins. Tomas Vokoun stepped in and provided stability until the Bruins series where the top offensive team in the NHL could not seem to score. What's done is done and now the organization is looking forward to the NHL entry draft, free agency, and the next season.
Beyond hockey, the Penguins partake in community outreach. Team owner Mario Lemieux also has his own separate charities raises money for cancer research and for comfortable facilities for pediatric cancer units. The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation also has many initiatives. For example, Project Power Play encourages fun, organized physical activity for today's youth and plans to build 12 facilities within the next three years. Other initiatives help with the expansion of hockey in the community and funding those who cannot afford it with equipment, lessons, and ice time. After captain Crosby suffered from two concussions which kept him out of the game for almost 2 seasons and the general manager's son had a similar injury, the Foundation started a program that provides free baseline tests (which indicate if someone has a concussion) to athletes ages 10 to 14. They are trying to raise awareness for concussions and head injuries.
Overall, this is a classy organization that are proven winners. Their roster looks like an All-Star team roster. Each year they are expected to make the Stanley Cup Finals and no less. The perpetually high expectations sometimes cloud their successes.

I am a die heart Pittsburgh Penguins hockey fan! They are the best team in the world and so modest! The coach is very conservative and they do so much work for the community. I went to one game in the past and it was definitely a night to remember. We're on our way to the second Stanley Cup! Go Pens! ❤

Crosby, Malkin, Kunitz, Dupuis: Big names in Hockey as well as big names for the Pittsburgh Penguins. It has been a while since they have been able to hold Lord Stanely's Cup above their heads, but it will come soon. Roster and management changes have been made, and as long as they do not lose the 500+ man games to injury they did last year, they'll do well. Only problem: I can't afford the tickets to actually go see them play! Next best thing is to go to Wilkes-Barre to see the Baby Penguins play, who are a talented group of guys who often find themselves traveling the 5 hours to play for Pittsburgh.

I got to go see the Penguins play a home game and I really enjoyed the whole experience. I was visiting from out of town but it was still nice.

They did just win the cup so that probably boosts their value as an NHL team. Is nice to see Kessel doing well and being appreciated by his team because I think he was really undervalued with Toronto.

I grew up knowing nothing of hockey. However when I got married I learned quick. One of the first teams I learned anything about was the Pittsburgh Penguins. I have watched them for the past 14 years. They always seem to play with their hearts and work at a team. I enjoy watching them play. They are a fun team to watch. I have only had the chance to watch them in person once but watch them on TV as much as I can.

Anyone would be a fool to question the talent of the players on this team but the trades recently have been questionable, I'm iffy on the new GM Rutherford. The team was like a new bridge working absolutely perfectly, then a few years went by and it got some cracks and potholes but instead of fixing the problems they tore it down and decided to rebuild it with a new coach new assistant coach and new GM.

I love the pens! They always have a sold out venue and the games are so fun to go to . By far the best sport and team I have ever seen live. It helps that the guys are also genuine and nice people to talk with and don't act like the fame has gotten to their heads like some of the steelers I have met.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are always entertaining to watch. The team has a lot of talent and even more heart. Sidney Crosby is not only an awesome player but also a great role model for kids. In fact a lot of the players (and their families) are very involved in the community and support many charities.

The Penguins are a team that have a core to build around. Every year you see a lot of the same names and faces from ownership on down. The owners understand what it means to be a player and they take good care of them. They also treat the fans well. Having continuity at the top with Shero and Bylsma means creates a better atmosphere more conducive to winning. I look forward to play off hockey for years to come.
