(Pittsburgh) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins will end President Obama's eight years in office the same way they helped start it: By celebrating a Stanley Cup championship at the White House.

The team was scheduled to meet with the president today.

The Pens defeated the San Jose Sharks in the NHL finals in June for the the franchise's fourth NHL title.

Pittsburgh topped the Detroit Red Wings in seven games in June 2009, Obama's first year in office, and first met him at the White House a few months later.
