While the Capitals were inside Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, trying to get Alex Ovechkin a shot on net, the Penguins and Flyers — two of the Capitals' Metropolitan Division rivals — we're making their final preparations for their Stadium Series game at Heinz Field on Saturday night.
And while the players were applying eye black and getting ready to adjust to the elements, the real festivities were already underway.
With Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown serving as the pregame hype man, the Pengiuins brough out real pengiuins for one final "awwwwwww” moment before the action begun.
Penguins are cute, clumsy and as we're about to find out, just as terrified of fireworks as humans.
The Penguins — the team — beat the Flyers 4-2, behind Sindey Crosby's 34th goal of the season. It was the Penguins' first home stadium game since the 2011 Winter Classic, in which the Capitals beat the Penguins 3-1.
