20 years ago today the Penguins first won the Stanley Cup



Round up of the celebrations:

A look back at the clinching game itself. Sort of lost in the 8-0 blowout is the fact that Tom Barrasso had to make 39 saves to earn his shutout. Not lost at all: Mario Lemieux's 44 playoff points in 23 games. Not half bad. [Empty Netters]

Where are they now? Amazingly, Mark Recchi's still playing (and going for another Cup!) and I hear that Jaromir Jagr guy is looking for a team too. In Russia. Or Pittsburgh. One or the other. Still interesting how many members of that team are still involved in hockey in some form or another. [Post-Gazette]
