BTB: PENS ON ICE IN BUFFALO
false
There was no easy road for the Pittsburgh Penguins last night.

According to Jason Seidling, a writer for the team's official Web site, the Penguins had more than one run in with the wintery weather that plagued the city of Buffalo yesterday as they made their way to the hotel.

The delays included a flight detour to Niagara Falls, a 30-minute wait on the runway and the Penguins' coaching staff having to push the team bus in the snow.

From penguins.nhl.com:

"With the Penguins about three blocks from reaching their hotel the first bus carrying the players, coaches and support staff could not get its wheels moving on the snow-covered streets. Within seconds head coach Dan Bylsma and several others were rushing out of the door to the rear of the vehicle.

"It took about 15-20 seconds but the efforts of Bylsma and his crew got the wheels on the bus spinning and moving in a forward direction. As great as it was to watch the guys pushing the bus out of the snow was seeing them sprint back to the front when their work was complete."
