I was so amazed when I first found it. It was one of those random YouTube surfing happy accidents. Sometimes something ultra great comes up on that side bar. I'll have to try and contact the guy who made it. Maybe he can make some more.

"Her name is not Lemieux...it's Asselin..." Um, OK. That was so cute, though.
I just loved this.
TBH, this version is 100x clearer than the original broadcast I saw, since I was losing my mind in a jam-packed Rathskellar at PSU. I remember yelling, "Jimmy Paek! Jimmy Paek! Jimmy Paek!" I was a bit under the influence.
I never got to see the original - we had moved to SC in August 1990.
I was underage, so no sports bar for me. I have no idea how I kept up with the Pens pre-popular Internet - but I distinctly remember watching Headline News' sports updates - at 20 and 50 past the hour (?) to check the score of this game. The highlights came much later in those days. I'm spoiled by instant highlights on the Gamecenter app.
