Despite the youthful and talented trio of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Marc-Andre Fleury, a second consecutive Stanley Cup run looked out of the question for the 2008–2009 Pittsburgh Penguins. Offseason free-agency defections left the reshaped team struggling and outside a playoff spot at midseason. Then a well-timed coaching change shook the squad out of its doldrums and pushed the young stars to peak performance. The result was a masterful run into and through the postseason, culminating in a dramatic seven-game series win over the Red Wings. Comeback Kids is a must-have for every Penguins fan as it traces the ups and downs of this riveting season and celebrates a hard-earned championship that just a short time ago seemed beyond Pittsburgh's grasp.
