Penguins names forever engraved, receive rings

Two more honors that go to the Stanley Cup champions occurred as the Pittsburgh Penguins received their championship rings and saw their names engraved for eternity.

The rings were presented Tuesday night, with the banner-raising ceremony before Friday’s home opener being the final event for the Stanley Cup champions. The Penguins names will remain on the Cup for 61 years. After that, the ring with their names will be removed and sent to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

The celebrating is almost over folks. Once that banner finds a spot in the rafters at Mellon Arena, it’s back to work.
