Last night (Sunday), Root Sports broadcast "The Save" on Sunday Night Classics. It was a cool look back at Game 6 of the Pens vs. Devils 1st round playoff series. The game took place April 13, 1991 in New Jersey. Pens trailed 2-3, needing a win to force game 7. In the first period, backup goalie Frank Pietrangelo robs Petr Stazny from point-blank range on a reflex glove save.
I saw the commercials for it, but honestly thought this had already been done. I guess I was just thinking of all of those 1 minute reminders of it that we get every game. Outside of root pittsburgh range, but want to watch it eventually.
The way that game played out, the Pens benefited from McCreary emphatically negating a New Jersey goal that he thought was directed off a skate, that would have tied it at 4 late in the 2nd. This was before replay, so McCreary's call stood. But sure looked like on the replay that it was skate then stick then in net.
The SAVE happened in the first when it was 2-1 Pens, who would later build it to a 4-1 lead before allowing Jersey back in the game.
