Chemistry 101: COVID-19 protocols helped Pens bond quickly

PITTSBURGH (AP) Nearly three dozen players made their way through the Pittsburgh Penguins locker room during the regular season, a byproduct of an injury list that seemed to remain in a constant state of flux.

Some, such as captain Sidney Crosby, have been around seemingly forever. Some, such as well-traveled forward Frederick Gaudreau, stuck and stayed. Some, such as massive rookie winger Radim Zohorna, made memorable cameos before disappearing back into the ether.

Each of them, however, contributed in some way to the franchise's first division title in seven years. The Penguins rarely missed a beat - particularly over the season's final two months - even with a lineup that fluctuated from game to game and sometimes shift to shift.
