Here are the Pittsburgh Penguins with a bunch of puppies

This is so important.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are back.

... Tomorrow. They’re back tomorrow, when they’ll get to raise their shiny new Stanley Cup banner in front of the Washington Capitals for their home opener at 6 p.m.

And that’s going to be fun!

But that’s still a day away. And don’t worry, even though they aren’t officially back on the ice just yet, the Penguins were still up to some very, very good stuff today.

Namely: puppies. They were hanging out with puppies.

It was a great day for the Penguins & Paws calendar shoot! Here's a sneak peak of Crosby and his friend, Major!

Is there anything more pure than the Penguins hanging out with a bunch of baby animals, and all for a good cause? No, of course not.

Not only are these going to be featured on the cutest calendar ever, but it’s also all about helping out the pets in Pittsburgh who need it - so it’s pretty much a must-have.
