The Pittsburgh Penguins celebrated the success of the Pittsburgh Pirates with a spirited game of Wiffle ball on ice. Or bockey. Or hockball. Or something.

Whatever it was, it was great.

“This is an awesome sports town,” Sidney Crosby said. “I think the athletes here, they all pull for the other teams and can all kind of relate to playing here and how lucky we are. But, also just how tough it is just to get to the playoffs and win and all the expectations that come with that. It’s a small community, but we’re all pulling for one another.”

The Penguins will get the chance to do it again, after the Pirates advanced to the National League Division Series with a 6-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.

Just remember: No sliding.
