Taxi squad celebrates the Stanley Cup too

From the Citizens Voice (Wilkes-Barre newspaper)

Late Friday night, long after captain Sidney Crosby took the first sip of champagne but before the team's charter left for Pittsburgh at 2:45 a.m., a group of six taxi squad players and a coach gathered around the Stanley Cup in the Penguins locker room for one last photo.

It was a team picture of sorts for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins who have been practicing with the parent club for the last month or so - defenseman Ben Lovejoy, goalies John Curry and Brad Thiessen, forwards Jeff Taffe, Chris Minard and Dustin Jeffrey and coach Todd Reirden.

It takes a whole organizational effort to make it to the top, good to see the background players getting to have a well-deserved good time for their contributions and efforts to help the team make it to the top.
