Old faces, new purpose as Malkin, Letang return to Penguins

CRANBERRY, Pa. (AP) The angst was real. For Evgeni Malkin. And Sidney Crosby. And Kris Letang. And just about everyone else associated with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The trio that's served as the franchise's bedrock for the better part of two decades understood they were heading into a summer of uncertainty, a time when the business of professional hockey might get in the way of their singular bond.

Yet all three kept the faith, confident that sanity and stability would prevail.
