Came across this old commercial:



What a run that was to come all the way back to the Finals, with a new coach, and beat the Red Wings in Joe Louis to make this picture not totally sickening.

I always thought we'd see a rubber match between the Datsyuk/Zetterberg Wings and the Crosby/Malkin Penguins, but it doesn't seem like it'll ever happen.

Hossa on the other hand . . .

I think that was Razor, who's usually pretty solid. I'm not a fan of Beninati's overcalling, but this call and his call on this were solid:

I was at Game 6 vs Toronto in 97. Kovy made it 2-0 on one of my favorite goals of his. He basically did a loop of the zone and kept the puck in with half of it across the blueline, kept skating to the top of the circle, deked a guy out of his skates and roofed a shot above (Potvins?) shoulder that had enough room between him and the post to basically fit the exact size of a puck. Another moment in that game when they were down 3-2 Jagr tied it in the second, I look a few seats down from me and a guy rips his shirt off Hulk Hogan style and starts beating his chest while the crowds goin nuts. Too bad TOR scored about 10 seconds into OT

The Ron Francis hat trick (including the GWG in OT) against the Rangers in Game 4 of the Patrick Division Finals is definitely one of my favorites.

The atmosphere outside of Mellon Arena during Game 4 of the 2009 SCF is also one of my favorite moments. It was absolutely electric.

Memory of the Nedved goal is fuzzy...I remember everything about the Kaspar goal...from the game to where I was at in my parents' living room.. 3-0 come back against the Rangers in 08 is one of my favorites...along with the rapid comeback in the 2nd(?) period on the Shhh game.

-The Staal shorty series changer
-The shhhhhh!
-Stunned Caps fan after OT win
-Fleury's glove save on OV
-6-0 win over flyers in game 5 of the '08 run
-Satan fight where he was enjoying himself
-Malking toying with the Hurricanes

-I watched the Nedved OT winner in college. Good times. There were probably 5 hockey fans on campus, and they were all in my room lol.
-Staal's SHG was awesome.
-Geno's hat trick with that sick backhand.
-Hedberg's Moose magic in 2001. (Almost forgot about that)

Luc Robataille's game tying goal as time expired in the finals vs. the Blackhawks. Unfortunately the game was never finished.

My first Pens game was a playoff game against the Devils. I still have the ticket stub, 2nd round of the 94-95 playoffs. We sat behind the benches, but that's as far as I can remember.

One of my first real Pens memories was Kasparaitis's OT goal to beat the Sabres. I can still see the TV in our family room and him sliding across the ice.

I remember the 1982 playoffs against the Islanders. The boys lost the first two on the Island 8-1 and 7-2. DeBartolo offered the fans a refund due to the lopsided nature of the games and team's embarrassing performance against the then three-time Stanley Cup Champions.

The fans hated DeBartolo so much that they showed up in great numbers for the game and the cheering started before the National Anthem. It was an electric atmosphere - something I've never experienced at any other event. The boys won the next two games at home 2-1 and 5-2 before falling to John Tonelli and the Isles in a close game 5 losing 4-3 on a puck that hopped over Randy Carlyle's stick to send the game to overtime. Tonelli scored the last two goals of the game. Interesting story here the game on Arbour's use of the rule that allowed a two-minute warm up for a goalie change http://islanders.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=627726 - they changed the rule after that. The Isles refer to that series as the one that almost derailed a dynasty.

Interesting team that year, Michel Dion was added to the roster after he had left the ice in the middle of a Bruins' game because he was upset at the total lack of defense, Paul Baxter had 409 minutes in penalties to set the franchise record, they broke the Isles 15-game winning streak, scored 99 power plays goals, rookie Mike Bullard had 37 goals, and Paul Gardner scored 36 goals in 59 games. Dion started the NHL All-Star game that year.

This game was in 1999 and I am pretty sure the goalie was Curtis Joseph. I was there with my dad. The feeling afterwards was awful for not only losing the game but possibly losing the franchise. A lot of people thought that was the team's last game in Pittsburgh. I'll never forget that game.

I would love to have video of the entire game. Does anyone have a copy? I would pay for it.

Here is the Volk OT winner: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNVXwt__OZk
