Pittsburgh Penguins was one of the six expansion teams that joined the NHL in 1967. Their start was not anything to talk about. The Pittsburgh Penguins had seven consecutive loosing seasons. Their loosing season started in 1967-1968 and lasted until 1973-1974. 1974-1975 season was good for the team and this was also Marc Boileau’s first year as team’s head coach.
The Winning Years
In 1984, Pittsburgh Penguins were awarded the top pick in the NHL draft. The same year, the team added a very important player, Mario Lemieux. He scored 100 points in his very first season. In 1987-1988, Lemieux helped Penguins win their first winning record in nine years. The same season, he was also awarded the MVP award.
In 1991, Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup under the expert guidance of head coach, Bob Johnson. In 1992, Penguins again won the Stanley Cup championship, after defeating the Chicago Blackhawks. However, this time Scotty Bowman was the head coach of the team. The winning streak of the Penguins always ensured that Pittsburgh Penguins tickets were always in great demand.
Mario Lemieux has been one of the greatest players for Pittsburgh Penguins. Lemieux won the scoring crowns in 1992-1993, 1995-1996, and 1996-1997. He was also awarded the MVP title in 1993 and again in 1996. In 1999, he saved the team from going bankrupt by buying it himself. By 2005, Penguins paid back all their creditors.
You can get your Pittsburgh Penguins tickets to Mellon Arena online. By the way, Mellon Arena is where the team plays their home games. This is only for the time being. On March 13th 2007, an agreement was reached, according to which, a new state-of-art multi purpose arena would be built in Pittsburgh itself. The agreement binds the Penguins to Pittsburgh for the next thirty years.
The new arena will open in time for 2010-2011 season and I am sure that Pittsburgh Penguins tickets would be sold out like hot cake. Moreover, let us hope that the team is on a winning streak by then.
Presently, Pittsburgh Penguins are working hard on their game. And this shows in their players. Sidney Crosby, who has the honor of becoming the youngest captain for a complete season, heads the team. He has meanwhile broken many NHL records and earned many trophies. He has won the Hart Trophy, Art Ross Trophy, and Lester B Pearson Award.
