“Le Magnifique,” a spectacular statue honoring the career and achievements of Mario Lemieux, was unveiled today in a public ceremony at CONSOL Energy Center.
The larger-than-life bronze statue, featuring the great Lemieux bursting through two defensemen on his way to the goal, is located in the plaza outside the Trib Total Media Gate, near the intersection of Centre Avenue and Washington Place.
The Penguins have posted a 0-3-0 record vs the Islanders since the statue was unveiled. Lets find a way to reverse this curse!!!!!!!
