23 Years ago today

00ppfront Against this very same New Jersey Devils team in a game that also started at 3:00, Mario Lemieux scored 5 goals 5 different ways(Even Strength, Power Play, Short Handed, Penalty Shot and Empty Net) in a feat that has never been duplicated. I was lucky enough to have been at that game. Where were you when it happened?

Jagr, Talbot Silence Penguins 4-2

Pens vs Flyers Through the years Pittsburgh fans have become accustomed to watching Jaromir Jagr score big goals. So it was nothing new, really, to see No. 68 find an open patch of ice and whip his patented backhander past an opposing goalie. Trouble is, the one-time Penguins’ great accomplished the feat Thursday night at the CONSOL Energy Center while wear [...]

I Will be Standing Up Cheering Jaromir Jagr Tonight

00ppfront What if we tried to make Pittsburgh not look stupid & petty tonight for the HBO 24/7 camera’s and national TV?  Lemieux once got a standing ovation in Philadelphia when he showed up. Today all I see and hear is reporters all over the radio, news print and social media telling me about how I should boo Jaromir Jagr tonight.  I will n [...]

Penguins-Flyers Rivalry Part 6: Sid versus Richy (2005-present)

pp0421 For the third time during the course of the Pens-Flyers rivalry, the momentum shifted with the arrival of a superstar. Sidney Crosby would lead the Penguins to a third Stanley Cup—and become a lightning rod for Philadelphia fans’ hatred and jealousy. As if scripted, “Sid the Kid” received a rude welcome from the Flyers. On November 16, 2005, [...]

Penguins-Flyers Rivalry Part 5: Eric Lindros and the Legion of Doom (1994-2005)

pp0422 Following a sorry sixth-place finish in 1991-92, the Flyers acquired the rights to phenom Eric Lindros from Quebec. Slowly but surely “the Next One” began to restore the Flyers to their former glory while centering the imposing “Legion of Doom” line for John LeClair and Mikael Renberg. The Penguins were no patsies, either. Loaded with big-nam [...]

Pumped-up Penguins Steamroller ‘Canes 4-2

Pens vs Canes Contests between the Penguins and the equally swift Carolina Hurricanes usually feature lots of end-to-end action and plenty of shots. This time, however, the Steel City sextet outdid themselves. Facing a Carolina team that was fresh off an emotional win over New Jersey the night before, the Pens poured 52 shots at ‘Canes goalie Justin Peters [...]

Penguins-Flyers Rivalry Part 4: Super Mario and “the Streak” (1984-1994)

pp0423 The Penguins were on life support when they drafted Mario Lemieux with the first overall pick in the 1984 Entry Draft. Although No. 66 would eventually lead the team to two Stanley Cups, it didn’t alter the nature of the Pens-Flyers rivalry—at least not right away. Paced by burly 50-goal man Tim Kerr, Hall-of-Fame defenseman Mark Howe, trucul [...]

Penguins-Flyers Rivalry Part 3: Rise of the Broad Street Bullies (1972-1984)

pp0425 The Pens-Flyers rivalry heated up during the early ‘70s, due in no small part to the emergence of “the Broad Street Bullies.” Armed with bruisers like Dave “the Hammer” Schultz, Bob “Hound” Kelly, Andre “Moose” Dupont, and Don “Big Bird” Saleski, the Flyers beat up everyone in sight. Pittsburgh was no exception. During a fight-filled contest [...]

Penguins-Flyers Rivalry Part 2: The Early Years (1967-1972)

pp0432 The seeds for “the Battle of Pennsylvania” were sown perhaps as far back as the mid-1960s. Upon learning of the National Hockey League’s ambitious plan to expand from six to 12 teams, Senator Jack McGregor and Peter Block lobbied hard to secure a franchise for the Steel City. Meanwhile, Philadelphia virtually was handed a team because it was [...]
