Here are your Pens Points for this Friday morning...

The Pittsburgh Penguins welcomed the Los Angeles Kings to town last night. Following a sloppy overtime loss against the fiery Montreal Canadiens, the Penguins survived an early onslaught from the Los Angeles hockey club, peppering Tristan Jarry with shots, but none would cross the goal line. Pittsburgh responded by going against the run of play and never looked back. [Recap]

After rumors swirled for months, the Penguins officially unveiled the return of the Robo Penguin jersey design from the 1990s. [PensBurgh]
