Of course there were penguins at the Stadium Series game

Like, the actual bird version.

NHL: Stadium Series-Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

What’s the point of hockey without any penguins involved?

... Well, I mean, Pittsburgh Penguins are a given. But the actual animal is often associated with ice, so you’ve gotta think they’d be naturals at the game (or, at the very least, enjoy being there).

So of course, there were Penguins, and then there were penguins.

Featuring Antonio Brown, Matt Murray waddling just like a penguin, actual penguins!!, fireworks, a little fall oh no (but he’s used to ice, so he got right back up) and, um, a very convenient cutaway when one of the penguins decides he needs to go to the bathroom immediately and, because he’s a bird penguin and not a Pittsburgh Penguin, goes for it right on the ice.

... We do not see the penguins after that.

Still, though, they’re great. Maybe someday we can get a penguin game of shinny!
