GAME NOTES By: Bob Grove

THE SERIES The top-seeded Penguins open the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs here tonight against the New York Islanders, the No . 8 seed playing in the post-season for the first time since 2007 . The Penguins have never won a playoff series against the Islanders — falling in seven games in the 1975 quarterfinals; falling in five games in the 1982 best-of-five preliminary round; and falling in seven games in the 1993 Patrick Division Finals . Each playoff series between these teams thus went the distance, with the 1982 series (John Tonelli) and 1993 series (David Volek) both ending in overtime and the winning goal in 1975 (Ed Westfall) scored with just 5:18 to play in the final game . . . The Islanders have not won a playoff series in 20 years since that 1993 victory over a Pittsburgh team that had amassed a franchise-record 119 points in the regular season . . . The Penguins went 4-1-0 in five games against the Islanders this season, losing a 4-1 decision here at home on Jan. 29 and then winning the final four games in the series by a combined score of 16-5. Pittsburgh has not lost the season series to the Islanders since going 1-3-2 against them in 2003-04 . Since Sidney Crosby joined the team, Pittsburgh is 35-12-6 in 53 regular-season games against the Islanders, including a 21-4-2 mark on home ice . That included a stretch of 13 consecutive home wins over New York — longest in Penguins history against one team — that was snapped last season with a 5-3 loss on March 27 continued on page 8

continued from page 7

. . . Sidney Crosby, who suffered his broken jaw on a deflected shot in the Islanders’ last game against the Penguins here on March 30, a 2-0 Pittsburgh victory, led all scorers in the series this season with nine points in four games . Chris Kunitz had eight points (4+4) while James Neal (3+3) and Pascal Dupuis (5+1) each had six points . Dupuis led all goal-scorers in the series . . . Former Penguins’ draft pick Matt Moulson (9th round, 2003) and Franz Nielsen led all New York scorers in the series with four points . John Tavares, who finished 17th in the NHL in scoring with 47 points, had one goal and two points in four games against Pittsburgh this season .

THE PENGUINS The Penguins enter the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs after arguably the best regular-season performance in team history . Pittsburgh went 36-12-0, a winning percentage of .750 that eclipses the .708 mark assembled by the 1992-93 team that earned 119 points in an 84-game schedule . Even with shootout victories removed, the current team still won at a .719 clip . . . Despite a 48-game schedule, this team won more games than 24 other Pittsburgh teams, and its 18 road wins were more than 33 other Pittsburgh teams . . . This is only the second time in franchise history the Penguins enter the playoffs as the No . 1 seed in their conference (1993) . . . Pittsburgh has lost three straight playoff series despite having home-ice advantage in each . . . The only time the Penguins lost four straight playoff series came after a second-round loss to Boston in 1979 and then opening-round losses in 1980 (Boston), 1981 (St . Louis) and 1982 (NY Islanders) . . . Pascal Dupuis became the first Pittsburgh player to lead the NHL in plus-minus (plus-31) since Ron Francis was plus-30 in

1994-95, the league’s first lockout-shortened season. Linemate Chris Kunitz was second at plus-30 while Sidney Crosby was fourth at plus-26 . . . Crosby finished fourth in NHL scoring with 56 points, four behind Tampa Bay’s Martin St. Louis despite missing 12 games. Kunitz finished seventh with 52 points. . . Kris Letang finished with 38 points, matching Montreal’s P.K. Subban for most among NHL defensemen. Letang, who played only 35 games, also became just the fifth Pittsburgh defenseman to finish a season averaging more than a point per game, joining Paul Coffey, Randy Carlyle, Larry Murphy and Sergei Zubov, who was the last to do so in 1995-96. . . Kunitz, Dupuis, Matt Cooke, Tanner Glass, Brandon Sutter and Craig Adams all played all 48 games during the regular season. . . The Penguins are 1-5 in their last six home playoff games and 5-9 at home in the playoffs since winning the Cup in 2009. They have been held to three or fewer goals in 11 of their last 13 home playoff games. . . Pittsburgh is 24-28 all-time in Game One of a playoff series, including a 17-12 when that game is played at home. . . The Penguins are 7-2 the last nine times they played Game One of a series at home, with both losses coming by a single goal. Pittsburgh is 4-5 in its last nine Game Ones. . . The Penguins are 31-21 in Game Two of a playoff series, including 22-8 when that game is played at home. Pittsburgh had won nine straight home Game Twos before losing the last three.

This is New York’s first series since losing in five games to Buffalo in the first round of the 2007 playoffs. The Islanders have lost six consecutive playoff series and eight of their last 10. . . Sixteen of the 28 players who skated for the Islanders this season have never played in a Stanley Cup playoff game, including seven of their top 10 scorers. . . New York was seventh in the NHL in average goals per game this season (2.81) and 21st in average goals allowed per game (2.83). . . Goaltender Evgeni Nabokov has never allowed a goal to either Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.

The First Ever ES Hybrid. 40 MPG EPA-Estimated.* At first glance, it’s a bold statement of style. Read between the lines, however, and you’ll discover that the first ever ES Hybrid doesn’t merely make a statement, it backs it up. Take, for instance, the sleek, sculpted appearance. It’s not just for show—the aerodynamic design boosts fuel efficiency up to an EPA-estimated 40 MPG.* And while the hand-stitched panels and precision-crafted interior make a stunning first impression, the available next-generation technologies in connectivity elevate the conversation. Ultimately, the 2013 ES Hybrid not only sends a message—it’s sure to build a following.

COMMUNITY UPDATE

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS SUPPORT THE ONE FUND BOSTON EFFORTS Following the recent tragedy at the Boston Marathon, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and Boston Bruins Foundation collaborated to auction off game-worn jerseys, adorned with unique patches, from their match on April 20 at Boston. Both teams will direct all proceeds from their foundation’s online auctions to benefit The One Fund Boston (OneFundBoston.org). The One Fund Boston was established by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and Governor of Massachusetts Deval Patrick to raise money to help those families most affected by the events at the Boston Marathon.

continued from page 21

The Penguins’ jerseys featured a 617 commemorative patch while the Bruins’ jerseys featured a Boston Strong blue and yellow ribbon patch. The teams set aside any hockey rivalries to focus on how they could best help the innocent victims in Boston and united to create online auctions through their respective foundations. The auctions will allow fans across North America to support both teams and the people of Boston. All proceeds from the online auctions will be directed to The One Fund Boston. The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation is offering fans an opportunity to bid on jerseys from the team’s complete roster on April 20. The jerseys are available at the NHL Auctions website (auctions.nhl.com) until the auctions end at 12:00 p.m. on Monday, May 13.

AROUND THE NHL By Mike Prisuta

THIRD-PERIOD PROWESS: The Rangers enter the playoffs having registered a point in 92 consecutive games when leading after two periods (86-0-6) dating back to Feb. 4, 2010. The run includes a 16-0-0 record when ahead after 40 minutes this season.

TORONTO HAT TRICK: The Maple Leafs qualified for their first postseason appearance since 2003-04 in part by leading the NHL in hits (1,626), blocked shots (826) and fighting majors (44).

HISTORIC RICHARD: Washington’s Alex Ovechkin became the first player to win a third Rocket Richard Trophy by leading the NHL with 32 regular-season goals. Ovechkin scored 23 goals and added 13 assists for 36 points over his last 23 games. Ovechkin’s sizzling second half of the season helped the Caps run off streaks of 11-1-1 in April and 17-4-2 in their last 23 games while earning their sixth straight postseason berth. RETURN ON THE INVESTMENT:

THE 600 CLUB: On April 17 Ken

The Wild qualified for the postseason for the first time in five seasons. Free-agent addition Zach Parise led Minnesota in goals (18), points (38) and game-winning goals (four). And the Wild went 15-1-1 when freeagent addition Ryan Suter posted a plus/ minus rating of plus-1 or better. Zach Parise

Hitchcock of St. Louis became the 11th coach in NHL history to achieve 600 career victories. Beating Hitchcock to the 600-win plateau were Scotty Bowman, Al Arbour, Dick Irvin, Pat Quinn, Mike Keenan, Joel Quenneville, Ron Wilson, Bryan Murray, Jacques Lemaire and Jacques Martin.

THE HOBEY HAWK: 2013 Hobey Baker Award winner Drew LeBlanc, formerly of St. Cloud State University, made his NHL debut with the Chicago Blackhawks on April 24 at Edmonton. LeBlanc registered three shots in 12:12. IRON MAN: Jay Bouwmeester concluded the regular-season with a streak of 635 consecutive games played, the longest such current run in the NHL, the NBA or MLB.

SCOUTING THE ISLANDERS By Wes Crosby

Here’s a look at the key players on the Islanders roster heading into Round One of the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs. C | JOHN TAVARES: The 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs will mark the long-awaited playoff debut of one of the league’s brightest young stars. John Tavares will make his first postseason appearance in his fourth season with the New York Islanders. The first overall pick of the 2009 NHL Draft led New York’s seventh-ranked attack this season, tallying 28 goals (third-most in the league), while putting up 19 assists and 47 points. But Tavares struggled in the regular-season series against Pittsburgh, earning just two points (1G-1A) in five games. 2012-13 REGULAR SEASON STATS CHART: 48 GP | 28G-19A-47P LW | MATT MOULSON: Another dominant forward for the Islanders will skate in the postseason for the first time at 29 years old, as Matt Moulson has helped lead the Islanders into springtime hockey. The former Penguins draft pick has never reached this point in his six-year career spent between the Los Angeles Kings and Islanders and will look to keep his chemistry with longtime linemate Tavares intact. The two of them combined for 43 goals this season, with Moulson assisting on 20 of 28 Tavares tallies. Moulson is a hardworking player who is strong on the puck and possesses scoring instincts. 2012-13 REGULAR SEASON STAT CHART: 47 GP | 15G-29A-44P C | FRANS NIELSEN: It has to feel like a huge weight has been lifted off Frans Nielsen’s shoulders, as he has been with the team since the 2006-07 season and has never played a playoff game (he was a continued on page 32

healthy scratch as a rookie during the Islanders’ last appearance). The twoway, playmaking center finally gets to experience the playoffs after a strong campaign in which he put up 29 points (6G-23A) while anchoring the second line. Nielsen is the type of player who should star in the playoffs. He’s responsible in both ends of the ice, is strong on faceoffs and is used in all situations for the Islanders. He’s viewed around the league as one of its most underrated players. 2012-13 REGULAR SEASON STAT CHART: 48 GP | 6G-23A-29P D | MARK STREIT: Islanders captain Streit is one player on the roster that at least has some playoff experience, appearing in 12 postseason games with the Montreal Canadiens a few seasons ago. The 5-foot-11, 193-pound defenseman who’s adept at moving the puck is a facet on both the Islanders’ power play (3:45 minutes per game) and penalty kill (1:20 minutes per game), and his two-way play will be needed if the Islanders are to contend with the Eastern Conference’s top seed.

D | LUBOMIR VISNOVSKY: Lubomir Visnovsky helped to solidify the Islanders’ back line in his first season in blue and orange, leading the team with a plus-12 rating. The 36-yearold smooth skating defenseman was third on the team in ice time, skating an average of 22:48 per game this season while also seeing time on the power play — averaging 3:12 minutes per game on the man-advantage. Visnovsky didn’t fare well against the Penguins this season, as he held a minus-3 rating — his second lowest rating against any team this season — in three games played. 2012-13 REGULAR SEASON STAT CHART: 35 GP | 3G-11A-14P

MARIO LEMIEUX CO-OWNER/CHAIRMAN

Mario Lemieux, one of the most respected figures in National Hockey League history, is in his 14th season as co-owner and chairman of the board of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Under the leadership of Lemieux and co-owner Ron Burkle, the Penguins have become one of the premier franchises in the NHL and in all of sports, leading the way in fan relations, youth marketing, community outreach and innovative technology while consistently putting a winning product on the ice — including six straight playoff appearances and a Stanley Cup championship in 2009. The Penguins entered the 2012-13 season having sold out 254 straight games while setting new standards for local television ratings, merchandise sales, website traffic and social media. Lemieux and Burkle were driving forces in the quest for a new multi-purpose arena for Pittsburgh and were proud to open CONSOL Energy Center in August, 2010. The sparkling facility is rated one of the top facilities in North America and hosted such national events as the 2012 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Second and Third Rounds and the 2012 NHL Draft. Known as Le Magnifique, Lemieux was one of the greatest players in NHL history from 1984-97 and 2000-06, winning six league scoring titles, three MVP awards and two Conn Smythe Trophies in addition to two Stanley Cups. An immaculately gifted 6-foot-4 centerman, he dominated play for parts of three decades despite a relentless series of medical setbacks, including multiple back surgeries and a battle with Hodgkin’s disease. He retired in 2006 as the No. 7 all-time scorer in NHL history with 1,723 points. He also ranks eighth all-time in goals (690) and 10th in assists (1,033). After retiring as a player in 1997, he put together an ownership group to buy the Penguins out of bankruptcy in September, 1999 and then returned to the ice on Dec. 27, 2000 — becoming the first player-owner of the modern era. In addition to his legendary hockey accomplishments, he continues to oversee the Mario Lemieux Foundation for cancer research and neo-natal research and hosts its annual celebrity golf tournament, which has raised more than $9 million for charity. More information is available at mariolemieux.org. The Penguins ownership group, local labor organizations and members of the Pittsburgh business community honored Lemieux in 2012 with a statue to commemorate his career and contributions to the city and the region. Appropriately named “Le Magnifique,” the statue, by nationally-acclaimed sculptor Bruce Wolfe, can be seen outside of the Trib Total Media gate at CONSOL Energy Center. Mario and his wife, Nathalie, and their four children live in Sewickley.

RON BURKLE CO-OWNER

Ron Burkle, one of the preeminent investors in retail, manufacturing and distribution industries, is in his 14th season as co-owner of the Penguins. He teamed with Mario Lemieux to buy the team out of bankruptcy in September, 1999, and together they have become one of the outstanding ownership tandems in professional sports. Among Burkle’s many significant contributions to the Penguins was his essential role in negotiations for a new arena. CONSOL Energy Center is considered one of the finest indoor facilities in North America and has attracted many national-level events to Pittsburgh — including the 2013 NCAA Frozen Four. Under the leadership of Lemieux and Burkle, the Penguins have sold out every game for five-plus seasons and consistently rank among the most fan-friendly and community-minded teams in the NHL and all of pro sports. The Penguins reached back-to-back Stanley Cup Finals in 2008 and 2009 and won the Cup in ‘09. The team’s solid foundation of ownership has enabled hockey management to spend to the salary cap, sign many of the team’s young core players to long-term contracts and put a competitive team on the ice year after year — leading to six straight playoff berths. Burkle founded the Yucaipa Companies in 1986 and has served as Chairman of the Board and controlling shareholder of numerous companies, including Alliance Entertainment, Golden State Foods, Dominick’s, Fred Meyer, Ralphs and Food4Less. Ron is Co-Chairman of the Burkle Center for International Relations at UCLA and is broadly involved in the community. He is a trustee of the Carter Center, the National Urban League, Frank Lloyd Wright Conservancy and AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA). Ron was the Founder and Chairman of the Ralph’s/Food4Less Foundation and the Fred Meyer Inc. Foundation. He was a member of the board of Occidental Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: OXY), KB Home (NYSE: KBH), Kaufman & Broad S.A. (Euronext: KOF), Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO), the J. Paul Getty Trust, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Music Center and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. He has received numerous honors and awards, including the AFL-CIO’s Murray Green Meany Kirkland Community Service Award, the Los Angeles County Federation Man of the Year, the Los Angeles County Boy Scouts Jimmy Stewart Person of the Year Award and the APLA Commitment to Life Award.

DAVID MOREHOUSE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER & PRESIDENT

David Morehouse has established himself as one of the most dynamic senior executives in the National Hockey League. Since being named President of the Penguins in April, 2007, Morehouse has reshaped the team’s image and strategic vision with an emphasis on branding, fan relations, youth marketing, community interaction, corporate outreach and innovative technology. He was given the additional responsibilities of Chief Executive Officer in September, 2010, and oversees every aspect of the Penguins’ operations, reporting directly to co-owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle. Under Morehouse’s leadership, the Penguins quickly developed a new commitment to innovative fan outreach — including an annual event where players personally deliver season tickets to fans’ homes and a special preseason game where all 18,000 tickets are distributed free to local youth. His emphasis on branding and marketing, coupled with the team’s success on the ice, enabled the Penguins to lead all U.S.-based NHL and NBA teams in local television ratings during the 2011-12 season. Keeping with that trend, the Penguins led all U.S.-based NHL teams in website traffic and Twitter followers while continually setting new standards for merchandise sales. Youth hockey participation also is on the rise — in part because of Morehouse’s support for efforts such as Sidney Crosby’s Little Penguins Learn to Play program, which distributes free head-to-toe hockey equipment, including skates, to 1,000 kids aged 5-7 each year. The Penguins have sold out every game for five-plus seasons, a streak that had reached 254 games before the start of the 2012-13 season. They also have sold out all suites for four-plus seasons and actually increased capacity at CONSOL Energy Center by 300 seats (to 18,387) after the arena’s inaugural season in 2010-11. Morehouse himself was named 2011 CEO Communicator of the Year by the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. The Pittsburgh native joined the Penguins in 2004 as Senior Consultant on the new arena project following a career in national politics that included stints at the White House, Pentagon and on Capitol Hill as well as key roles in two Presidential campaigns. Morehouse attended the Community College of Allegheny County and Duquesne University and received a master’s degree in Public Administration from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. He and his wife, Vanessa, have four children and live in Sewickley Heights.

RAY SHERO

EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT & GENERAL MANAGER

Ray Shero has established himself as one of the premiere general managers in the National Hockey League. Shero, 50, who is in his seventh season as Pittsburgh’s GM, has transformed a franchise that missed the playoffs from 2002-06 into a perennial championship contender, including two Stanley Cup Final appearances and a Cup title in 2009. Shero, who was named general manager of the Penguins in May, 2006, arrived in Pittsburgh with a firm, forward-thinking managerial style that incorporates cutting-edge methods of technology, player relations, prospect development and salary cap management. Shero’s efforts have secured the Penguins’ long-term stability and competitiveness with his masterful maneuvering of the salary cap — the Penguins ranked No. 3 out of 122 pro sports franchises in spending efficiency according to Bloomberg Business Week — and multi-year signings of the team’s core players: Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Marc-Andre Fleury, Brooks Orpik, Kris Letang, and James Neal. Shero’s riskiest and boldest move paid off with hockey’s highest prize. With the Penguins needing a jolt of life late in the 2008-09 season, he promoted Wilkes-Barre/Scranton head coach Dan Bylsma to Pittsburgh. Bylsma led a turnaround that resulted in a championship in ’09. Bylsma also won the Jack Adams Award as the NHL’s Most Outstanding Coach in ’11. Shero cut his administrative teeth during 14 seasons as an assistant general manager with the Nashville Predators (1998-06) and Ottawa Senators (1993-98). Shero, a native of St. Paul, Minn., was raised in a hockey family filled with tradition. His father, Fred Shero, played for the NY Rangers (1947-50) and coached the Philadelphia Flyers for seven seasons. Fred won back-to-back Stanley Cups as head coach of the Flyers in 1974 and ’75 and also served as general manager of the Rangers for three years (1978-80), leading the club to the Stanley Cup Final in 1979. The Sheros are one of the few father-son tandems to have their names on the Cup. Shero played college hockey at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y. He twice led the team in scoring and was named team captain on two occasions. He graduated in 1984 as one of the top-10 scorers in school history. Shero, who was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1982 NHL Draft, spent seven years as a player agent before making the transition to the front office. Shero is actively involved with USA Hockey and is a member of the USA Hockey National Team Advisory Group. Ray and his wife, Karen, and their two sons reside in Upper St. Clair.

JASON BOTTERILL ASSISTANT GENERAL MANAGER

Jason Botterill is in his fourth full season as assistant general manager after being promoted to his current position in May, 2009, by GM Ray Shero. As assistant GM, Botterill works closely with Shero on all hockey-related matters, including scouting, player development and contract negotiations. He also manages hockey operations and acts as GM for the club’s top minor-league affiliate, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League. Prior to his promotion, Botterill, 36, worked two seasons as director of hockey administration with the Penguins; his responsibilities included salary cap management, professional and amateur scouting and overseeing prospect development. Botterill’s avant-garde approach and understanding of the salary cap has been a major asset for the Penguins. Before joining the Pittsburgh organization, he worked with NHL Central Registry and also scouted for the Dallas Stars. Botterill, a native of Edmonton who grew up in Winnipeg, was a firstround draft pick (20th overall) by Dallas in the 1994 NHL Draft and played 88 NHL games over six seasons with Dallas, Atlanta, Calgary and Buffalo. He also played 393 career games in the AHL and IHL, recording 127 goals and 257 points. Following his playing career, he returned to the University of Michigan to earn his MBA. Jason and his wife, Andrea, and their daughter, Alisa, reside in Pittsburgh.

GILLES MELOCHE GOALTENDING COACH

Former NHL goaltender Gilles Meloche is in his seventh season as the Penguins full-time goaltending coach and 27th overall with the organization, winning three Stanley Cups with the franchise. Meloche has been instrumental in the development of Marc-Andre Fleury into a franchise and Stanley Cup-winning netminder and team MVP. With Meloche’s teaching, Fleury has become the backbone of the team while tying for the most wins (226) and shutouts (22) in team history. Meloche, 62, served as a Penguins scout from 1989-06 and doubled as goaltending coach/consultant during much of that time. He was part of the staff when the Penguins won Cups in 1991 and ’92. The Montreal, Quebec native spent 18 seasons as an NHL goaltender with Chicago, California, Cleveland, Minnesota and Pittsburgh. He played the final three seasons of his career with the Penguins following a 1985 trade. Meloche appeared in 788 NHL games, posting a 270-351-131 record with 3.64 goals-against average. In 45 playoff games he posted a 21-19 mark with a 3.48 GAA. Gilles and his wife, Sophie, reside in Pittsburgh. He has a son, Eric, and daughter, Annie. Eric is a pro player who played in the Penguins organization from 2000-04.

RULES OF THE GAME PRESENTED BY

BOARDING

BOARDING To check or push a defenseless opponent in such a manner that causes the opponent to hit or impact into the boards dangerously or violently.

T:8.5”

B:8.75”

S:8.5”

-

The player applying the check needs to ensure his opponent is not in a defenseless position and if so, must avoid contact.

-

The player with the puck needs to avoid placing himself in a dangerous and defenseless position.

-

Any unnecessary contact with a player playing the puck on an obvious icing or off-sides play that does not impact boards should be treated as charging.

DELAY OF GAME A player may be penalized when, in the opinion of the Referee, is delaying the game in any matter. (Normally six conditions) 1.) Player or goaltender intentionally shoots or throws the puck out

of the playing area.

2.) A defensive player or goaltender in the defensive zone shoots the

puck directly (without being deflected) over the glass.

3.) A player or goaltender intentionally knocks the net’s goalpost off

its moorings, which stops the play.

4.) The goaltender plays the puck out of the trapezoid behind the net. 5.) The goaltender freezes the puck rather than passing it to a team-

mate when no player on the opposing team is within sufficient distance to apply offensive pressure.

6.) Any skater other than the goaltender who uses their hands to

make the puck unplayable.

BODY POSITION: Body position will be determined as the player skating in front of or beside his opponent, traveling in the same direction. - A player who is behind an opponent, who does not have the puck, may not use his stick, body or free hand in order to restrain his opponent. POSSESSION OF THE PUCK: The last player to touch the puck, other than the goaltenders, will be considered the player in possession. RESTRAIN: The actions of a player or goaltender who does not have body position, but instead uses illegal means to impede an opponent who is not in possession of the puck. PICK: The action of a player or goaltender who checks an opponent who is not in possession of the puck and is unaware of the impending check/hit. FREE HAND: When a free hand is used to hold, pull, tug, grab or physically restrain an opponent from moving freely, this must be penalized as holding.

STICK: A player who does not have body position on his opponent, who used his stick to impede or prevent his opponent from moving freely on the ice shall be assessed a hooking penalty.

OFF-SIDES Players of the attacking team must not precede the puck into the attacking zone. (Two determining factors) 1.) One of a player’s skates is not in contact with or behind the blue

line of the attacking zone before the puck enters that zone.

2.) The puck must completely cross the edge of the blue line nearest

the attacking zone to be considered inside the attacking zone.

The act of using the stick in a manner that enables a player to restrain an opponent.

-

2013 PLAYOFF FORMAT The National Hockey League’s 30 clubs are aligned into two conferences, each consisting of three divisions (Eastern Conference: Atlantic, Northeast, Southeast; Western Conference: Central, Northwest, Pacific). The number of teams qualifying for the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs remains at 16. First-round playoff berths will be awarded to the first-place team in each division, as well as to the next five best teams (based on regular-season point totals in each conference). The three division winners in each conference will be seeded first through third (in order of points) and the next five best teams (in order of points) will be seeded fourth through eighth. In each conference, the team seeded #1 will play the team seeded #8; #2 vs. #7; #3 vs. #6 and #4 vs. #5 in the Conference Quarterfinal round. Home-ice in the Conference Quarterfinals is granted to those teams seeded first through fourth in each conference. In the Conference Semifinals and Conference Finals, teams will be reseeded according to the same criteria as the Conference Quarterfinals (division leaders will be seeded first and granted home-ice advantage while the remaining teams will be seeded in order of regular-season points). Home-ice advantage in the Stanley Cup Final will be determined by points. All series remain best-of-seven.

TIE-BREAKING PROCEDURE: In the event two or more clubs are tied in points at the conclusion of the regular season, the standing of the clubs in each conference will be determined in the following order: 1. The greater number of games won in regulation and overtime. 2. The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs. If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included. If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs (and not including any odd games) shall be used to determine the standing. 3. The greater differential between goals for and against for the entire regular season.

CONFERENCE QUARTERFINALS (SERIES A – H) The six regular-season division champions will be ranked in the first three positions in their respective conferences, the clubs with the greatest number of points being ranked first in their respective conferences. The remaining five playoff clubs in each conference will be ranked based on regular-season points. Following are the matchups based on the rankings.

CONFERENCE SEMIFINALS (SERIES I – L) If one division winner is eliminated in the Conference Quarterfinals: The remaining division winners would be seeded first and second, followed by the two remaining clubs in order of regular-season points. The #1 seed would face the club with the fewest regular-season points, while the other two clubs would meet. If two division winners are eliminated in the Conference Quarterfinals: The remaining division winner would be seeded first, followed by the three remaining clubs in order of regular-season points. The #1 seed would face the club with the fewest regular-season points, while the other two clubs would meet. If all three division winners are eliminated in the Conference Quarterfinals: The remaining clubs would be ranked in order of regular-season points. The remaining team with the most regular-season points would be seeded first, followed by the three remaining teams. The #1 seed would face the #4 seed, while the #2 and #3 seeds would meet. If a division winner meets a non-division winner that compiled more regular season points: The division winner would receive home-ice advantage.

CONFERENCE FINALS (SERIES M AND N) The same criteria used in the selection of order for the Conference Quarterfinals (Advancing division winners, followed by remaining clubs based on regular-season points) again will be in effect. If a division winner meets a non-division winner that compiled more regular-season points: The division winner would receive home-ice advantage. If Conference Semifinal series end early: Start dates for the Conference Finals may be moved up depending on a number of factors, including building availability and travel schedules.

STANLEY CUP FINAL (SERIES O) The Eastern Conference and Western Conference champions will meet in the Stanley Cup Final series. Home-ice will be determined by the greater number of regular-season points, subject to the tiebreaking procedures outlined previously. Games will be played on a 2-2-1-1-1 basis.

PENGUINS HISTORY AT A GLANCE

OCTOBER 11, 1967 FIRST GAME IN FRANCHISE HISTORY The Penguins played their first game as an NHL franchise. The Penguins fell 2-1 to the Montreal Canadiens in front of 9,307 fans at the Civic Arena.

JUNE 9, 1984 MARIO IS DRAFTED NHL hockey may have been born in Pittsburgh on October 11, 1967, but it came alive June 9, 1984 when Eddie Johnson stepped to the podium and selected Mario Lemieux with the first overall pick of the1984 NHL Entry Draft, the first time the Penguins had ever held the No. 1-overall selection.

MAY 25, 1991 STANLEY CUP CLINCHER With an 8-0 victory over the Minnesota North Stars, the Penguins become Stanley Cup champions for the first time in their 24-year history.

JUNE 1, 1992 STANLEY CUP CLINCHER Penguins defeat the Chicago Blackhawks in four games to win back-to-back Stanley Cup championships.

JUNE 24, 1999 GREATEST SAVE In the greatest save of Penguins history, Lemieux and a team of investors rescued the ailing franchise from bankruptcy.

APRIL 17, 2006 YOUNGEST TO 100

DECEMBER 27, 2000 THE COMEBACK

Sidney Crosby became the youngest player in NHL history at 18 years, 253 days to record 100 points in a season on April 17, 2006. Crosby collected three assists against the New York Islanders to reach the century mark in front of a hometown crowd of 17,084 fans.

Making perhaps the greatest comeback in sports history, Mario Lemieux emerged from retirement to rejoin the Penguins. In true Mario fashion, Lemieux posted an assist on his first shift of the game en route to a three-point night in a 5-0 defeat of the Toronto Maple Leafs at Mellon Arena.

OCTOBER 18, 2006 MALKIN’S DEBUT Evgeni Malkin made his NHL debut against the New Jersey Devils. Malkin did not disappoint, beating the Devils Martin Brodeur to begin a scoring tear that saw him tie a modern-day NHL record for rookies by lighting the lamp in each of his first six games.

JANUARY 1, 2008 WINTER CLASSIC Sidney Crosby turned the page on a storybook ending with his dramatic shootout game-winner in front of 71,217 fans during the inaugural NHL Winter Classic at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

SERIES STORYLINES: PENGUINS VS. ISLANDERS By: Michelle Crechiolo and Wes Crosby

The Pittsburgh Penguins will meet the New York Islanders in a bestof-seven opening-round series in this year’s Stanley Cup playoffs. The Penguins won the season series with the Islanders, 4-1 — the sixth straight season Pittsburgh has finished with a winning record against their Atlantic Division opponent, who is making its first postseason appearance since 2007. Here are the main storylines to follow as the series progresses.

HART TO HART Before Penguins captain Sidney Crosby suffered a broken jaw in Pittsburgh’s last game against the Islanders on March 30, he was considered the favorite for the Hart Trophy as League MVP. And while Crosby is the NHL’s most outstanding player, there are a few other candidates in the field — and John Tavares is one of them. The Hart Trophy is given to the player judged to be most valuable to his team, and Tavares is the primary reason the Islanders made the playoffs for the first time since 2007. As the team’s alternate captain, top-line center and leading scorer, the 22-year-old led the push for the Islanders’ playoff berth. Tavares finished the season with 28 goals and 47 points in 48 games. The team went as he did, as the Islanders were just 4-10-3 when he was held without a point and 11-4-2 when he recorded at least one. Now we’ll see if the hard-working Tavares can play like a Conn Smythe Trophy candidate during his postseason debut against a team as talented as the Penguins. And of course, we’ll be waiting to see when Crosby, who missed the last 12 games of the regular season, is able to return. Crosby participated in his first team practice in almost a month on April 26, but there is no timetable for his return to game action. continued on page 113

PRODUCTIVE OFFENSES The Penguins and Islanders have both proven adept at putting pucks in the back of the net. Pittsburgh enters the playoffs with by far the NHL’s most productive offense, while the Islanders finished seventh in goals for. Pittsburgh finished the season ranked No. 1 for the second straight year, scoring 162 goals for an average of 3.38 goals per game. They had a league-best (tied) eight players reach double digits in goals: Chris Kunitz (22), James Neal (21), Pascal Dupuis (20), Sidney Crosby (15), Jarome Iginla (14), Jussi Jokinen (13), Brenden Morrow (12) and Brandon Sutter (11). Pittsburgh has an absolutely stacked lineup, and it could be difficult for the Islanders defense — ranked 21st in the league — to weather attacks from some of the world’s most skilled players. That showed in the season series, especially in Pittsburgh’s 6-1 thumping of the Islanders on March 10. But the Islanders have a young, skilled and fast forward lineup led by budding superstar Tavares. Both Tavares and longtime linemate Matt Moulson have developed into a dynamic duo. The two of them combined for 43 goals this season, with Moulson assisting on 20 of 28 Tavares tallies. While the Penguins defense has been stout in the final two months of the regular season, corralling those two could be a tough task. However, when teams have contained New York’s top line of Moulson, Tavares and Brad Boyes, the second line of Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen and Josh Bailey has proven capable of providing secondary scoring. And from the third line, the league’s fastest player Michael Grabner has chipped in 16 goals — which ranks second on the team. Add in the offensive capabilities of blueliners Mark Streit and Lubomir Visnovsky, and New York has a surprisingly deep lineup that could make up for its defense. continued on page 114

SPECIAL TEAMS A major storyline of any playoff series is the special teams battle. Both the Penguins and the Islanders own lethal power play units, with Pittsburgh’s ranked No. 2 and New York’s ranked No. 11. However, both teams’ penalty killing units ranked in the bottom 10 of the league. Pittsburgh’s coaching staff has an unfair amount of talent to choose from when on the man-advantage, and it resulted in their highest finish since also ranking second back in 1996-97. But with all of the injuries to star players, we haven’t seen what the Penguins power play could look like with everyone healthy. What we do know is that both Kris Letang and Paul Martin have proven adept in their own ways at handling quarterback responsibilities. Jarome Iginla and James Neal have ridiculous releases they utilize on their off wings. Chris Kunitz is the consummate net-front presence, and is there anything we really need to say when it comes to Crosby and Evgeni Malkin? The Penguins have seen firsthand just how dangerous New York’s power play can be. Tavares leads the team with nine goals and 16 points on the power play and utilizes his heavy shot from the walls. Moulson is right behind him with eight goals and 15 points. Streit and Visnovsky work the points on the top unit while Boyes helps provide the net-front presence. Not only do the Islanders have a skilled power play, but they’ll be facing a penalty kill that finished 25th in the league. However, the final ranking of Pittsburgh’s penalty kill might be deceiving — as in the last two months it has improved dramatically. There were a number of notable cases where four-minute major penalties and multiple 5-on-3s were successfully killed down the stretch. Adding Douglas Murray may be part of the reason why, as one of the main reasons the Penguins brought him in was for his shorthanded prowess. Let’s see if he and the rest of the PKers can deliver during the playoffs.

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS FOUNDATION

PROJECT POWER PLAY Project Power Play represents a group of partners; The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation, Highmark, the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County, who are focused on building 12 multi-sport dek hockey rinks to encourage physical activity and provide accessibility to hockey facilities for youth. The first two rinks in the City of Pittsburgh are located at Banksville Park on Crane Avenue and at Lewis Park in Hazelwood adjacent to the YMCA, both opened at the end of 2012. Over the next three years, 10 more rinks will be constructed as part of the $2.1 million project. Project Power Play funding comes from Highmark which is committing $1.5 million and the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation which is providing $600,000. Additional contributions come from the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County and the local municipalities, which are providing land for the rinks, as well as maintenance, lighting and other support. Dave Soltesz, president of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation says, “The Foundation’s mission includes creating opportunities for youth that stress physical fitness, teamwork and sportsmanship. The dek hockey rinks and related programs will serve youth in the region, fulfill the Foundation’s mission to encourage youth fitness, and help to make hockey a more accessible sport. These are the best dek hockey rinks anywhere,” Soltesz says. “You have to see it to believe it.” The facilities, 155’ x 75’, are multi-sport courts and each includes a premier dasherboard system like those used in the NHL, players’ benches, penalty box, scorer’s table, goals at each end, and start-up dek hockey equipment. Each facility will have nine access gates, including handicap access via the service gate. Black vinyl fences enclose each facility. Soltesz says, “We are proud of our sport. We are proud of our region, and we are proud to put these types of facilities in the communities.”

PensFIT

In a first-of-its-kind program, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation is providing free floor hockey equipment to more than 250 elementary and middle schools in Allegheny County. The program, known as PensFIT, got its start on Friday, November 9 when Penguins alum Phil Bourque delivered the first set of equipment to Neil Armstrong Middle School in Bethel Park. The equipment for each school retails at more than $1,000 and includes goals, sticks, stick bags, hockey balls, goalie equipment and a storage bag. In addition to providing student workbooks and instructional manuals, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation will offer a seminar at CONSOL Energy Center for the schools’ physical education teachers – hosted by the Penguins’ coaching staff and team alumni. PensFIT is designed as a three-year initiative to assist elementary schools in providing new opportunities for physical education classes. The long-term goal is to supply free equipment to 600 elementary and middle schools in 10 counties. Schools from surrounding counties will be added during the second year of the program. The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation has teamed up with corporate partner FedEx Ground on delivery of the equipment. FedEx Ground will provide shipping to the schools free of charge.

MIKE LANGE

PENGUINS RADIO NETWORK PLAY-BY-PLAY ANNOUNCER

One of the most unique broadcasters in professional sports, Mike Lange is calling games in his 36th season with the Penguins, handling radio play-by-play on the club’s flagship station, 105.9 FM The X and the Penguins Radio Network. Known for his creative and colorful style, including trademark phrases such as “Buy Sam A Drink And Get His Dog One, Too,” Lange was awarded the Foster Hewitt award by the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001. Lange’s relationship with the Penguins began in 1974-75, when he broke into the NHL as a radio play-by-play man. He left for one season, but returned in 1976-77 and has been a fixture on the Penguins’ scene ever since. Lange did radio exclusively until 1979, when games were simulcast on radio and TV. He served as the television voice of the Penguins through 2005-06, before returning to the radio booth in 2006-07. A native of Sacramento, California, Lange earned a degree in broadcasting from Sacramento State University before starting his career as the voice of the Phoenix Roadrunners (WHL) in 1970. He also served as the play-by-play voice of the San Diego Gulls (WHL) in 1973-74 before joining the Penguins. In addition to his tenure with the Penguins, Lange handled play-by-play duties for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1986-87. A well-known member of the Pittsburgh community, Lange makes numerous personal appearances throughout the year and is actively involved in charity work.

PHIL BOURQUE

PENGUINS RADIO NETWORK COLOR ANALYST

Two-time Stanley Cup Champion Phil Bourque is in his eighth season on the Penguins broadcast team, serving as color commentator alongside Mike Lange. A gritty winger/defenseman, Bourque was signed by Pittsburgh as a free agent in 1982, and went on to record 164 points (75G-89A) in 344 regular-season games with the Penguins between 1983 and 1992. For his career he totaled 199 points (88G-111A) in 477 games with the Penguins, New York Rangers and Ottawa. Since retiring from professional hockey in 2000, Bourque has co-hosted Penguins pre- and post-game shows on the Penguins Radio Network and worked as a contributor for WPXI-TV’s coverage of Penguins hockey.

The Pittsburgh Penguins Elite program presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods will feature 13 teams playing at the AAA level — eight boys teams and five girls teams. “Part of our overall vision of supporting local youth hockey has been to create an elite Pittsburgh Penguins youth program that would attract top players in different age groups, offering an excellent environment to develop skills, teach teamwork and compete against top teams from other areas,” said David Morehouse, CEO and President of the Pittsburgh Penguins. “The Pittsburgh Amateur Hockey League (PAHL) and Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League (PIHL) do such a great job of growing the game here, and there are a number of good amateur programs. But we thought it made sense to have a AAA program directly affiliated with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

LITTLE PENGUINS LEARN TO PLAY HOCKEY

Sidney Crosby and his family wanted to help parents introduce their children to the game of hockey — and to do it without having to incur a prohibitive up-front cost. The result is the Little Penguins Learn to Play Hockey program. This generous donation and tremendous, one-of-a-kind opportunity allows children, aged 4-8, to receive free head-to-toe hockey equipment and 10 sessions of on-ice instruction. The 2012-13 season will be the fifth consecutive year for the Little Penguins program, which continues to grow. Last season twenty-three rinks hosted the program, which includes four girls-only locations. Since the program began during the 2008-2009 season more than 3,200 children have been introduced to hockey through this program. This season, 1,000 participants aged 4-8 will receive free gear and learn the game. Thanks to the combined efforts of Sidney Crosby, the Pittsburgh Penguins, Penguins Foundation, Reebok, and Dick’s Sporting Goods, all participants receive full sets of Reebok SC87 equipment, including skates, stick, helmet, gloves, pants, shoulder pads, shin pads, elbow pads, and an equipment bag, as well as an official Little Penguins jersey and helmet stickers. After four highly successful seasons, the program sells out quickly. During the pre-registration period, parents may view information regarding participating rinks, starting dates, number of sessions, and times of instructional sessions, which are listed on the Penguins’ website. For participant convenience, registration will occur online at pittsburghpenguins.com. “We were both excited and amazed by the reaction to the Little Penguins program in previous seasons, and we’re happy to be able to

offer the program again for another year,” Crosby said. “The goal is to continue to create opportunities for more kids in the Pittsburgh area to take up hockey. With the Little Penguins program, they can receive head-to-toe hockey equipment and learn the game in a fun and organized way.” “It’s a tribute to Sid and his family that they want to reach out and create this incredible opportunity for children in the Pittsburgh area,” said Penguins CEO and President David Morehouse. “One of their goals was to help parents by providing free head-to-toe hockey equipment to properly equip their children. The Penguins are honored to join Reebok and Dick’s Sporting Goods in supporting Sid and this great program.”

BEHIND THE BENCH WITH COACH DAN TIPS FOR YOUTH HOCKEY PLAYERS

SKATE, SKATE, SKATE No matter what level you are playing, skating is everything when it comes to hockey. However, skating isn’t just about being able to move backwards or forwards. Change of direction is critical when your team is on the transition from defense to offense, or vice versa. That makes being able stop, turn or pivot on a dime and quickly accelerate out of a start position as much a key to being a good skater as straight-ahead speed. Work hard to improve your skating when you can!

THE IMPORTANCE OF PASSING Pay attention to your passing. Nothing moves the puck up ice quicker than a tape-to-tape pass. A good passing team is able to maintain possession of the puck for long stretches, putting itself in position to generate more offense. What separates the great passers from the good ones is not only are they able to deliver the puck to a teammate when he or she is wide open, but they are able to use the boards and make area passes to teammates in traffic. “Practice perfect passing.”

GET TO THE NET Everybody has probably heard the saying ‘good things happen when you go to the net.’ There is a good reason for that — everything happens there. When you have a chance to shoot, get the puck on net. You also have to make sure that you physically go to the net so that way you are there for tips, rebounds and screens — all plays that lead directly to goals.

WORK HARD AND HAVE FUN We all want to be the best players we can be and help our team win each time we step on the ice. The easiest way to achieve this — WORK HARD EVERY TIME you step on the ice because work ethic is a huge key to being a successful hockey player. Just as important as working hard is ENJOYING THE GAME. Hockey is just that — a game — which means it is something we do to entertain ourselves. When you are having fun on the ice, chances are good that you are playing your best.

2012.13

SEASON RECAP Here is a look back at your 2012-13 Atlantic Division Champion Pittsburgh Penguins:

After suffering a 4-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Feb. 28, the Penguins would not drop another decision for 32 days. The Penguins began one of the most impressive winning streaks in NHL history with a nerve-wracking 7-6 overtime win over the Montreal Canadiens. They went on to reel off 15 straight victories, outscoring opponents 53-26, with a perfect 15-0 March record. The streak fell just two wins shy of matching the 1992-93 Penguins NHL record 17-game winning streak, but still tied the 1981-82 Islanders for second-best in league history. “I think we came to a clear understanding,” goalie Tomas Vokoun, “no matter how good of a team we are, if we’re not going to commit to playing the right way, we’ll still win and we’ll still make the playoffs and we’ll be talked about as a good team, but I don’t think we have as good of a chance to be a great team or win in the playoffs.” Vokoun and Marc-Andre Fleury, along with Pittsburgh’s blueliners, were the main factor in the streak staying alive as long as it did. In the streak’s last 11 games, the Penguins never surrendered more than two goals and set a franchise record by shutting out three straight opponents in the middle of a season-long five game home stretch. “We’ve definitely improved our defensive zone play over the last month here,” forward Brandon Sutter said two days after the Penguins continued on page 191

shutout the Islanders 2-0 on March 30. “For ‘Flower’ and ‘Voky’ to be playing the way they are has been awesome.”

TRADE DEADLINE ACQUISITIONS Penguins general manager Ray Shero showcased his trade wizardry leading up to the NHL’s annual trade deadline this season, bringing in four key pieces, headlined by future Hall of Famer Jarome Iginla. Shero started remaking his roster a few days before the deadline, acquiring Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow and San Jose defenseman Douglas Murray. Shero shocked the hockey world when he came to an agreement with Calgary Flames general manager Jay Feaster, sending Iginla to Pittsburgh in exchange for prospects Kenny Agostino, Ben Hanowski and a 2013 first-round pick. The former Calgary captain and hockey icon debuted in the Penguins’ 2-0 win over the New York Islanders on March 30 and said it felt similar to his first career game. “You’re literally all the way back to when you were 18,” Iginla said, “and you’re trying to stay calm. It feels great to come here and just be part of a win. Just keep rolling.” But Shero still was not finished staking his claim as the clear trade deadline winner, as he made one final deal, acquiring center Jussi Jokinen from Carolina for a conditional sixth- or seventh-round pick in the 2013 draft. continued on page 193

The deals made the Penguins the odds-on favorite to hoist the Stanley Cup, but Shero was not close to being satisfied. “The team on paper doesn’t matter too much,” Shero said. “We have to do it on the ice.” Each piece contributed to making the Penguins a complete team by the end of the season. Iginla provided veteran grit and even more offensive firepower, Morrow brought a strong net-front presence and leadership, Murray served as a bruising, shutdown defenseman and Jokinen added a skilled, versatile forward that excelled in faceoffs.

SEASON RECAP The Penguins had a remarkable regular season, locking up the Eastern Conference’s top seed with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on April 20 and earning their first Atlantic Division title since the 2007-08 season. The Pens finished the season with 72 points, on pace for 123 points across a full-82 game schedule, which would have been the highest total in franchise history. After a rocky 3-3 start, Pittsburgh quickly became a force to be reckoned with in the early part of this shortened season. They made a statement within the division by trouncing the New Jersey Devils 5-1 at home on Feb. 2, two days after shutting out the New York Rangers 3-0 in Madison Square Garden. The Penguins battled the Devils at the top of the division through much of the first two months before New Jersey slipped down the standings, while Sidney Crosby returned to form as the best hockey continued on page 194

player in the world. Crosby scored 31 (9G-22A) of his 56 points this season in those two months. Crosby led the NHL’s scoring race for much of the season, holding a 10-point cushion over Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos on March 30, when Crosby suffered a broken jaw when a puck struck his face in his first shift of a matchup with the New York Islanders. Crosby’s scoring pace was so daunting that he wasn’t taken over until nearly a month later, when Tampa Bay’s Martin St. Louis surpassed Crosby with a hat trick on April 24. The Pens’ captain missed the final 12 games of the regular season, but his NHL-best 1.56 points-per-game pace allowed him to finish tied (tied) for third in the race for the Art Ross Trophy. But Crosby wasn’t the only marquee Penguin name that missed a substantial amount of time due to injury. Reigning Hart Trophy winner Evgeni Malkin battled injuries throughout the season, missing 17 games, while James Neal, Paul Martin, Brooks Orpik and Kris Letang were all sidelined at various points. The Penguins’ injury list made what they accomplished all the more impressive, as the team was continuously forced to rearrange its lines without some of the best players in the NHL at its disposal. They seemed to adapt flawlessly in each situation, while adding noteworthy pieces Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, Douglas Murray and Jussi Jokinen undoubtedly helped to not only steady the ship, but to keep it sailing at full mast.

Pittsburgh maintained a potent offense, the league’s best with a 3.38 goals per game average, which led the team to a 13-8 record through February, before experiencing a flawless March. The Penguins finished March a perfect 15-0, while outscoring their opponents 53-26. While the offense was dominant during the month, and through the entire season for that matter — scoring at least three goals in 10 of the 15 games — the defense gave the team a noticeable boost, especially as March came to a close. The Pens allowed two or fewer goals in 11 straight games to end March, including four shutouts (three consecutive to conclude the month). Their 15-game winning streak was one that will be etched in the annals of Pittsburgh sports history, alongside the 1992-93 Penguins record 17-game winning streak. The remarkable season was capped off in the finale when injured players Neal and Martin returned to the lineup. Neal scored three goals (adding an assist for a four-point night) for his third career hat trick in an 8-3 drubbing of the Carolina Hurricanes. It was the perfect was to end a memorable season.

PENS PROFILE

TOMAS VOKOUN By: Mark Madden

When he signed with the Penguins as a free agent this past off-season, goalie Tomas Vokoun’s 19-year pro hockey career came full circle geographically. If you allow for a slight latitude adjustment, that is. Vokoun’s first North American team was the Wheeling, W.Va., Thunderbirds (now Nailers) of the ECHL. It was 1995-96. Vokoun, 19, was Montreal property. He went 20-10-2 with a 3.63 goals-against and a .881 save percentage. Vokoun was a one-year wonder at Wheeling. He was off to the American Hockey League the next season, and was an NHL regular with Nashville by 1998. “I remember,” a smiling Vokoun said when asked about Wheeling, located an hour south of Pittsburgh. “It was the first place I played when I got over here from Europe. It was a good experience. It seems like a very long time ago. “But I still remember lots of my teammates and coaches. It was my first team [in North America]. You’re not going to forget that.” The Penguins signed the two-time NHL All-Star Game participant as goaltender insurance, and it’s worked out very well. Marc-Andre Fleury is the Pens’ No. 1 netminder, but Vokoun is a strong 1-A, hardly a backup. Vokoun played 20 games during the 48-game regular season, posting a 13-4 record, a 2.45 goalsagainst and a .919 save percentage. Vokoun, now 36, became the 28th NHL goaltender to win 300 games when he made 34 saves to defeat host Ottawa, 3-1, on April 22. That win was vintage Vokoun. No muss, no fuss. Made it look easy. “It took me a while,” Vokoun said when congratulated for No. 300. “I’m pretty proud of that, to be able to be in the NHL 15 years. It’s not an easy thing. There’s a lot of competition, so I’m pretty proud of that.” The Pens played at CONSOL Energy Center the next night. When the PA and Jumbotron noted the milestone, Vokoun received a lengthy ovation.

“That was really nice from the fans,” said the Czech puckstopper. Vokoun also participated in three consecutive shutouts. He relieved an injured Fleury for the final 20 minutes of the Penguins’ 1-0 win over Montreal on March 26, then blanked Winnipeg 4-0 on March 28 and the New York Islanders 2-0 on March 30. Vokoun made 67 saves between those three games. He went over 173 minutes without allowing a goal.

“Obviously, there’s more involved than just your play,” Vokoun said. “The teams we were playing were really good. We got some breaks. I was fortunate enough to go a couple games without [allowing] a goal, which is always nice.” Vokoun feels his game has evolved greatly in the seasons between Wheeling and Pittsburgh. “You have to change,” Vokoun said. “Everyone plays different than they did 3-4 years ago. The game changes. The rules change. You have to adapt. “Obviously, as you gain experience, you kind of know what to do. You know when you’re lacking in something and try to add it. You have to know your strengths, and use them.” Vokoun has been a great strength for the Penguins. He’s enjoying his time in Pittsburgh. “It’s been great,” he said. “The team is doing great. Everything has been positive for me. In any hockey season, you’re going to be a little bit up and down. But overall, I’ve enjoyed it. We have a great group of guys, and a great team. That’s what I was looking for when I came here.” Mark Madden hosts a radio show 3-6 p.m. weekdays on WXDX-FM (105.9).

JOE VITALE

#AskJoeyV @mariamac58 What’s your favorite type of pasta? @penguins #AskJoeyV “Favorite type of pasta is definitely capellini. It’s kind of like angel hair. It’s the thinnest noodle. I had it a lot when I was a kid. My mom always made it for me, so it’s kind of my go-to.” @Iceburgh29 If you could have any superpower, what would it be? @penguins #AskJoeyV “I think to shoot spaghetti from your fingers. That’d be kind of cool. ” @28_Holly If you could attend any concert who would you see? @penguins #AskJoeyV “I’d love to see the Beatles when they were hot. I guess, today’s day and age, I’d like to see Eric Church. I’m a big Eric Church fan. I’m seeing Clapton next month, but you know who? George Strait, he’s the man.” @PensFanFromLA What do you love most about being a hockey player? #AskJoeyV “What I love most about it is just obviously, you’re playing a game for a living. I grew up playing the game and the thought of still playing this game and actually getting paid to do it is kind of a cool experience. So, there’s that and obviously you’re doing something you love everyday and I’m a big fan of the summer. The summer breaks are a great time to spend with my wife and two kids.” @87sidsational Who’s your biggest role model? @penguins @joevitale46 #AskJoeyV “Pascal Dupuis. He’s been here since I’ve got here and he’s one of the best and he’s kind of helped me get acclimated here and he keeps everyday fun.” @annieohhdee Who is a better cook: you or Paul Martin? @penguins #AskJoeyV “I never had anything Paul Martin had. I got to go with me. I got to be confident. I had a bunch of the guys over earlier this year. We had spaghetti and meatballs. That’s kind of my go-to. I do spiedinis, some different crème brulee deserts and things of that nature. I grew up, my dad was big in the kitchen. I always helped him. I was kind of his sou chef throughout grade school and high school. He taught me everything he knew, mostly Italian dishes.”

NEW ACQUISITIONS By: Mike Prisuta

The Penguins weren’t so much a team in transition during the NHL’s abbreviated 2013 season as they were one under construction. They knew how they wanted to play. The idea was to perfect that style, and to collect as many players as possible capable of playing it at a championship level. DOUGLAS MURRAY Entering the 2013 postseason the Penguins have become a team, period. “Nothing feels awkward anymore,” forward Jarome Iginla announced following a mid-April victory over Montreal. That hadn’t been the case while the Penguins had been in the process of adding Brenden Morrow from Dallas on March 24, Douglas Murray from San Jose on March 25, Iginla from Calgary as March 27 was becoming March 28 and, finally, Jussi Jokinen from Carolina on April 3. The insertion of four established, veteran players into the mix — Morrow had been the captain in Dallas and Iginla had worn the “C” in Calgary — bolstered depth and potential but threatened chemistry. But for the Penguins the assimilation of the new players into the group was seemingly as painless as it apparently was rapid. That Canadiens game after which Iginla had spoken on April 17, a 6-4 triumph at CONSOL Energy Center, had featured a goal and an assist from Iginla, two goals and a helper from Morrow and even a goal from Murray, his first in 147 games. Jokinen might also have joined the scoring parade had he played more than 7:20 prior to departing for the night due to illness. continued on page 218

Still, the transformation that had been made by the new players into new teammates was no less obvious. Head coach Dan Bylsma had a theory as to why that happened so quickly. “The quality of the player and the quality of the people in this regard has been a factor right off the hop,” Bylsma said. Iginla, conversely, credited the incumbent Penguins. “The guys have been great in making us feel comfortable and welcome,” Iginla said. “I think the first week was a little bit different. Maybe I looked a little bit like a deer caught in the headlights or whatever, and that was my own doing. “The guys have been great since I’ve been here and really tried to make all of us as comfortable and feel as big a part of it as possible.” Bylsma didn’t need to see points piling up before suspecting the new acquisitions would pay dividends as they fit into their new NHL environment. He used the word “presence” five times in assessing what Morrow, Iginla and Murray had meant after all had played such prominent roles in that victory over Montreal. And Bylsma insisted what the new Penguins were producing hadn’t been limited to goals, assists and hits. “These guys have come in and in their own ways have been contributing right from the start.” As they did they managed to keep the regular-season ball rolling. The Penguins had won nine consecutive games at the time of the Morrow trade. They closed 11-4 beginning with Morrow’s first game in uniform in Pittsburgh, a 1-0 win over the Canadiens on March 26 at CONSOL Energy Center. The Penguins finished the regular season in such a fashion despite Evgeni Malkin missing five of the final 15 regular-season contests, James Neal missing eight and Paul Martin and Sidney Crosby missing 12. Even as the pieces to the puzzle changed, the big picture of the type of team the Penguins aspired to become clicked into place. “I think it’s four of us that have come in here knowing what’s expected,” Murray said. The rest was just the details of the Penguins’ systems and terminology becoming “second nature,” as Murray put it, “to where you don’t have to think about it and it just happens out there.”

218


Another significant factor in the painless rearranging of the Penguins was that the team was 25-8-0 before any of general manager Ray Shero’s trade acquisitions hit the ice in a Penguins uniform. “There are a lot of good players,” Iginla assessed. “It’s a very good team. “I got here and right away you realize how much confidence the group has in playing the way they play and playing hard and having a certain style and believing that you go into every game thinking you can win.”

ICEBURGH A delight for children of all ages, Iceburgh — the official mascot of the Pittsburgh Penguins not only provides fans with exciting game entertainment but this large, energetic bird can also be seen at a multitude of community events and elementary schools throughout the greater Pittsburgh area. Iceburgh arrived on the scene in 1992 and is a staple at all team events.  During Penguins’ home games, fans most definitely notice the antics of Iceburgh leading sections of fans in cheers, greeting young children on the concourse or displaying his athleticism on-ice between periods. In 1995, Iceburgh made his Hollywood debut, starring alongside Jean Claude Van Damme in the motion picture “Sudden Death.” He has gained both national and international exposure through film, TV and a variety of personal appearances. Iceburgh wasted no time getting acquainted with his new home at CONSOL Energy Center in September of 2010. You can find Iceburgh sliding down stair banisters, dancing in the stands and tossing t-shirts to fans. Iceburgh has performed in Russia and Japan, was featured in the opening of ESPN’s SportsCenter and recently performed in front of a record crowd of over 68,000 at Heinz Field for the 2011 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic. He is also regularly featured on in-game videos and has appeared in advertisements and television promos on ROOT Sports. In addition to his annual trek to the NHL All-Star Game, Iceburgh makes annual appearances at the Mascot Olympics held in Orlando, FL.
