The Stanley Cup is coming to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.

A trio of Penguins players — Bryan Rust, Jake Guentzel and Brian Dumoulin — are scheduled to visit the Lawrenceville hospital Monday afternoon during an event with patients, family and hospital staff.

Patients and families will also have the opportunity to interact with one of the National Aviary’s African penguins from 2 to 3 pm.

The Pens defeated the Western Conference Champion Nashville Predators in six games to win the Cup for the fifth time in the franchise’s 50-year history.

Last month, Ian Cole brought the Cup to C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor. Cole, a Penguins defenseman, is an Ann Arbor native.

The Penguins also visited Children’s Hospital with the Cup a year ago after defeating the San Jose Sharks.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
