of the Pittsburgh Penguins
You no doubt still remember the thrillers and
outstanding performances of the Penguins of 1991. Like:
Friday, April 5 - Rookie Jaromir Jagr makes a
spectacular move around New Jersey's John MacLean, pulling Chris Terreri all the way
across the crease before lifting a shot into the net to give the Penguins a 5-4 overtime
victory. Jagr's goal came 8:52 into the extra session.
- Saturday, April 13 - Faced with elimination in Game Six at New
Jersey and without goaltender Tom Barrasso who was out with a shoulder injury, the
Penguins got standout goaltending from Frank Pietrangelo to win 4-3. The most vivid
memory of that game is "The Save." Pietrangelo appeared hopelessly beaten when
Peter Stastny had the puck alone in front of the net. Fans behind the net thought Stastny
had scored, but somehow Pietrangelo gloved the shot.
- Monday, April 15 - Tax Day was not all that taxing for the
Penguins, who shut out the Devils, 4-0, to win the series. Pietrangelo made 27 saves to
get the shutout.
- Friday, April 19 - Pietrangelo struggled for the second
straight game after losing the opener to the Caps. His teammates, however, battled back to
send the game to overtime. One of the biggest goals of the night came on a delayed penalty
to the Caps. Randy Gilhen came on as the extra attacker, circled behind the net, came out
in front and scored.
The gamewinner came from
the stick of Kevin Stevens, who took a perfect cross-ice pass in stride from Ron Francis
and beat goaltender Don Beaupre at 8:10.
- Thursday, May 9 - After evening the series with the Bruins at
two games each, the Penguins returned to a venue that had proven very difficult over the
years: Boston Garden. The Penguins blasted Boston, 7-2, to bring the series back to the
Civic Arena for the series-clinching sixth game.
- Saturday, May 25 - The Penguins' first-ever Stanley Cup came
in a most convincing manner, Pittsburgh whipping Minnesota, 8-0, on the North Stars' home
ice. The Penguins scored early and often, putting the Stars away in the first five
The second Cup season, (1992) provided similar thrills.
- Friday, May 1 - After falling behind the Capitals 3-1 in the
series, the Penguins came back to force a seventh game at the Capital Centre. They played
a stingy defensive game, holding Washington's offensive to a single goal and won, 3-1. The
teams combined for three penalties (two by Pittsburgh, one by the Caps), establishing a
- Saturday, May 9 - Once again on the verge of elimination
against the New York Rangers, the Penguins rallied behind a Ron Francis hat trick to win
5-4 in overtime. Francis keyed a comeback with a 60-foot blast that beat goaltender Mike
Richter in the third period and then scored on a deflection at 2:47 of overtime.
- Tuesday, May 26 - The first game of the Stanley Cup finals did
not start out as a classic for the Penguins. They got behind Chicago, which had won 11
straight playoff games coming into the finals. But Lemieux swooped in to deposit a rebound
of a Larry Murphy shot behind goaltender Ed Belfour with 13 seconds left in the game for a
5-4 Penguins' victory.
- Saturday, May 30 - History will tell you the Penguins don't
win 1-0 games. Especially on the road and even more especially at Chicago Stadium. But
goaltender Tom Barrasso was spectacular in whitewashing the Blackhawks and the Penguins'
only goal came on a freak play in which Kevin Stevens was given credit for the goal when
it deflected off his skate, even though his back was facing the net.
While Penguins' playoff history does not read like that of the Montreal
Canadiens, it does have its moments.
