Exactly four months after the Pittsburgh Penguins raised the Stanley Cup in San Jose, the new NHL season got underway. While the Penguins will look to become the first team in nearly 20 years to repeat as champions, the season will be sure to deliver plenty of twists and surprises during the regular season.

Next Step for McDavid

Evgeni Malkin, Scott Wilson and Patric Hornqvist scored third period goals to lead the Penguins past the Sharks 3-2 in a rematch of last year's Stanley Cup Final.

The comeback by the Penguins was even more improbable as they were down two defensemen due to injuries to Derrick Pouliot and Olli Maatta.

Gabriel Landeskog was the hero for the Colorado Avalanche Monday night in Pittsburgh as he scored a game tying goal late in the 3rd period, and then the game-winner a little over a minute into overtime.

The game was back and forth all night, with the Penguins jumping out to a 2-0 lead in the first period by way of goals from Phil Kessel and Matt Cullen.

For the fourth time in franchise history, the Pittsburgh Penguins will begin their season with a banner-raising ceremony. Despite the earthbound nature of their mascot, the Penguins flew through the toughest postseason tournament in all of sports and raised Lord Stanley’s Cup over their heads for the first time since 2009.

All in all, seven years does not seem like that long of a time in between championships.

The defending Stanley Cup champs return with a roster almost identical to the one that captured Lord Stanley's coveted chalice. Can the Pens become the first team to repeat since the 97-98 Red Wings?

Sidney Crosby will enter the 2016-17 season with the freshest hardware of just about any player in the league. Crosby, of course, captained his team's run to the Stanley Cup in June and also skated away with the Conn Smythe trophy as the playoff MVP. He capped that by leading Team Canada to the World Cup of Hockey championship last month. But who will wind up with this year's trophies?

Hart Trophy (league MVP) – Predicted Winner: Jamie Benn

Jim Rutherford was named the Penguins general manager in June 2014. Just 18 months later, after another early playoff exit and a slow start to his second season, Rutherford fired his head coach, a move that had many wondering if the GM would be next on the chopping block.

Fast-forward six more months, to June 2016.

Bob Prince was best known as the voice of the PIttsburgh Pirates for 28 years, but it was not the only job he had over his Hall of Fame career. “The Gunner” also called Steelers and Penguins games at different times during his career and was part of the NBC broadcast team for the 1965 All-Star Game.

When the Penguins hired Jim Rutherford as their general manager in 2014, it seemed like a temporary move. The former Carolina Hurricanes GM would spend his two years in Pittsburgh, and then hand the keys to Jason Botterill; the man whom several people thought deserved the job in the first place.

As much as 80 percent of the Pirates starting rotation could be different next season. Only Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon are locks to return from the 2015 crew. With three spots potentially open, the Pirates could look to add veterans through waivers, free agency and trades. Here are some potential in-house solutions.

For years, the accomplishments of the Penn State men’s basketball team have been few and far between. Head coach Patrick Chambers has posted a 23-67 overall conference record in his five seasons, one of the worst marks among Power 5 schools. Only TCU, Boston College, Texas Tech and Virginia Tech have a lower in-conference winning percentage than Penn State's .256 mark during that span.
