The monotony of the NHL regular season can get to a team, even one in the midst of a long winning streak. Daily routines are almost never broken: practice in the morning, naps and meals in the afternoon, games at night, sometimes some travel, sleep and repeat.â†µ
So good for the Pens by breaking up what would have been another gray day of practice by bringing in thousands of kids from around the area. Brings some energy for the players and gets to basically a free advertising clinic by Sidney Crosby and the players to the next generation of paying fans. Smart, that Penguins organization, and again they show why the team regularly wins awards for their marketing and PR efforts.
