Winter Classic Presser, Mario's First Meeting With Stanley

A couple of quick reminders:

``At 12:00 Eastern you can stream the press conference for the Winter Classic off of Mario Lemieux, Ray Shero, Pascal Dupuis, Matt Cooke and Sidney Crosby will be there for the Pens.  Caps reps are Dick Patrick (team president), David Steckel and Mike Knuble.

Logos for the event are expected to be released, as well as pictures of what an ice rink inside Steelers' Heinz Field will look like.  Some have speculated lately that the Pens may use a black or gold winter classic jersey and not a blue one, so perhaps we'll get a clue today.  As a jersey reminder: the powder blue alternate jersey that the team's used the past couple of years WILL be worn about 10 times this year, but they'll have a special 2011 Winter Classic jersey that will be worn just once.  For this season, at least.

``Tonight at 8:00 Eastern, tune to the NHL Network for Game 6 of the 1991 Stanley Cup Finals between the Pens and the Minnesota North Stars.  I'm not exactly sure what happens, I think you'll see some goals (and maybe THE goal) and then afterwards people are happy or something.

(Tomorrow night the 1992 Cup clincher will be on NHLN.)

A somewhat busy summer day for Penguins hockey.  You gotta take what you can get.
