Video: A very special delivery
Share with others:
Sidney Crosby, the NHL's reigning scoring champion and MVP, was one of six Penguins players who hand-delivered season tickets to 24 homes around the Pittsburgh area today. The others were forwards Evgeni Malkin, Colby Armstrong and Maxime Talbot, defenseman Ryan Whitney and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.

The team chose the full- and half-season ticket holders randomly. To ensure the fans would be home, they were told a player would deliver their goodie box -- with the tickets, a highlight video, pocket schedules and other items -- but not which player. Alice Kilgore was worried she wouldn't recognize the one sent to her house.
"Some of the players I don't know without their number," she said. "I recognized him without his number."
