WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - The Pittsburgh Penguins are set to chase another Stanley Cup, and they're going to do it with a lot of familiar faces. While other teams make themselves over year after year, Pittsburgh has maintained the status quo on its roster.
After their stunning exit in four games in the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Bruins, the Penguins appear set to give it another go. The Penguins signed high-scoring Evgeni Malkin, defenseman Kris Letang, winger Pascal Dupuis, and coach Dan Bylsma to contract extensions, keeping the core of the team intact. Also back is goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who's in the last two years of his contract and was a weak link in the playoffs.
Their exhibition slate over and the new NHL season looming, the Penguins traveled to West Point for three days of training and team building over the weekend. It's their third trip here since 2007, and general manager Ray Shero was hopeful the experience would help spur an increased sense of camaraderie on a team that flopped badly against the Bruins - just when it seemed destined to challenge for its fourth championship.
