I am in agreement with this. Even though the Pens were bad, it was a blast.


It was more fun then. Those student sections are not going to get recreated again for probably 15+ years.

I just remember the first time I heard "Beer Peanuts Here!" guy (later became Cotton Candy Here! guy, RIP)

"BEER PEANUTS HERE!"

"Dad what the hell was that?"

I had him saying "cotton candy here" as my text alert for so long that I can't even remember him saying anything else.

Kraft played pretty well on my NHL 2002 league.

Penguins right winger Aleksey Morozov usually isn't one for big-goal celebrations.
But Friday night, when he scored in overtime to beat the Carolina Hurricanes, 4-3, he was more than just a little excited.
He was also proud.
Morozov pumped his arms in the air before skating past the glass, looking into the Mellon Arena stands and holding out the Penguins logo on his jersey for all to see.
"I was so happy; we won the game in overtime, and it was really important for us," he said. "I tried to show the fans that we're hot and they should come to Sunday's game. I expect it's going to be a sellout. We're playing against the Rangers. It should be an interesting game."

and of course the video



As simple as it is, it's still one of my favorite goal celebrations

One of my favorite Pen's games was '02 or '03 (I can't remember if it was the year Anaheim made the finals or the year before) when they blew us out 7 or 8 to nothing. Never again have I seen a team only touch the puck in a legitimate scoring area maybe 1 or 2 times the entire game.

Oh Jesus, I remember that game...Madden and McKay each had 4-goal games... :face:


I remember how Jagr was just a -1, which I made sure to remark to my friends :D
