I didn't initially intend to make one of these this year, but since it seems it's now a thing for everyone else to try to make them, I might as well at least offer up "the original" for those with taste :)
Actually don't hate this. Or hate myself for doing it. Since I actually have a working relationship with the Penguins, I wouldn't consider using a part of their graphic identity in a for-profit design. Buuuut, since it's the Caps... fair game?
