AROUND THE NHL OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN Carolina’s Eric Staal and Detroit’s Nicklas Lidstrom were chosen as the team captains for the NHL All-Star Game on Jan. 30 in Raleigh, N.C. All of the All-Stars voted for the two captains, Eric Staal Nicklas Lidstrom who will then pick their squads in an All-Star draft. Lidstrom, who is 40-years old, leads all defenseman in scoring with 42 points in 45 games. “With all of the great players participating, it’s a great honor to be selected as a captain for this year’s All-Star Game,” Lidstrom told NHL.com. “I’m really looking forward to all of the weekend’s events and I’m very excited to be a part of the draft that decides the rosters of the two teams.” Staal, who will be playing in front of his hometown crowd, was the MVP of the 2008 All-Star Gamein Atlanta. He has 22 goals on the season and 46 points. His younger brother and Rangers defenseman, Marc, is also an All-Star. Eric admitted Marc was pressuring him to pick him in the draft. “I’m OK with the pressure from him,” Eric told NHL.com. “I’m not worried about him too much.”

HATS OFF, ZDENO In his 892nd NHL game, Boston’s Zdeno Chara scored his first-career hat trick in the Bruins’ 7-0 win over Carolina on Jan. 17. Chara, who is Boston’s captain, is just the fourth Bruins’ defenseman to score three goals in a game, joining an exclusive club with Bobby Orr, Ray Bourque and Glen Wesley. “It’s always nice to say I’ve done it — I’ve had a hat trick,” Chara, who won the Norris Trophy in 2009 as the league’s best defenseman, said after the game. “I did it.” 8

RON BURKLE Ron Burkle has now added a new arena — Pittsburgh’s CONSOL Energy Center — to his tremendous list of accomplishments in the business world. Burkle, widely recognized as one of the preeminent investors in retail, manufacturing and distribution industries, is in his 12th 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 developed one of the outstanding ownership groups in all of professional sports. Among Burkle’s many significant contributions to the Penguins was his role in negotiations for the new arena deal. Under the leadership of Lemieux and Burkle, the Penguins have sold out every game for three-plus seasons and established new standards for television ratings, merchandise sales and website hits while winning acclaim as the No. 1 team in professional sports in Fan Relations. A consistent post-season threat on the ice, the Penguins reached back-to-back Stanley Cup Finals in 2008 and 2009 and won the Cup in 2009. Young stars such as Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Marc-Andre Fleury, Jordan Staal and others have been signed to long-term contracts, ensuring that the team’s core will remain intact. 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 and the Frank Lloyd Wright Conservancy. He has received numerous awards, including the AFL-CIO’s Murray Green Meany Kirkland Community Service Award, the Los Angeles County Federation Man of the Year and the Los Angeles County Boy Scouts Jimmy Stewart Person of the Year award.

MARIO LEMIEUX Mario Lemieux always will be remembered for the magic he created on the ice, but one of the crowning achievements of his remarkable career came this season in his role as a businessman — the opening of CONSOL Energy Center, home of the Penguins and Pittsburgh’s new multi-purpose entertainment venue. The new arena puts the exclamation point on Lemieux’s lengthy quest to ensure the Penguins’ long-term future in Pittsburgh and provides his adopted hometown with a spectacular state-of-the-art center for professional and collegiate sports, concerts, family shows and other events. “There were so many people who contributed to this project, including local and state political leaders, local business leaders, NHL officials and, of course, our fans,” said Penguins CEO David Morehouse, “but I think it’s safe to say that none of this happens without Mario Lemieux.” Even before the reality of CONSOL Energy Center, Lemieux and co-owner Ron Burkle had turned the Penguins into a premier NHL franchise, winning praise for off-ice business accomplishments in addition to creating a positive, player-friendly atmosphere on the hockey side. The Penguins have sold out a team-record 186 straight games, sold out every suite for three straight seasons and established records for local television ratings, merchandise sales and website hits. Over the summer, the Penguins were named the No. 1 team in professional sports in Fan Relations by ESPN The Magazine. Oh, and they won the Stanley Cup in 2009 — the third Cup of Lemieux’s career but his first as an owner. Lemieux was one of the greatest players in NHL history from 1984-97 and 2000-06, winning six league scoring titles, three MVPs trophies and two Conn Smythe Trophies as playoff MVP, in addition to the two Cups. An immaculately gifted 6-foot-4 centerman, he dominated play for parts of three decades despite a 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 ranked eighth all-time in goals (690) and 10th in assists (1,033). 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 celebrity golf tournament, which has raised more than $8 million for charity. More information is available at mariolemieux.org. Mario, his wife Nathalie and their four children live in Sewickley.

DAVID MOREHOUSE Pittsburgh native David Morehouse was named CEO of the Penguins in September and leads the team into an exciting new era at CONSOL Energy Center. Morehouse had served as team president since 2007, overseeing ticket sales, marketing, corporate sales, communications and brand development, as well as representing the team in corporate relations and governmental affairs. Under his leadership the Penguins have become one of the top organizations in professional sports — ranked No. 1 in Fan Relations and No. 5 overall as a franchise among 122 pro teams in North America by ESPN The Magazine. As team president, Morehouse implemented a brand strategy that featured a new commitment to marketing, fan interaction and community outreach, as well as a targeted focus on the team’s young fan demographic. Under his leadership, the Penguins have sold out every game for three straight seasons — the sellout streak was at 166 games entering 2010-11— while leading all U.S.-based NHL teams in local TV ratings last season and setting new standards for website traffic and social media.

RAY SHERO Ray Shero, 48, is at the vanguard of the NHL’s new breed of general managers — steeped in family hockey tradition but on the cutting-edge of new technology and modernization in hockey operations, player relations and team management. His fresh ideas and calm but firm management style helped transform the Penguins from a team that did not qualify for the playoffs in 2005-06 to one that reached the Stanley Cup Final in 2007-08 and won the Cup in 2008-09. During that time, he has moved boldly to ensure a strong future for the Penguins, signing six key members of the team’s core — Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Marc-Andre Fleury, Jordan Staal, Brooks Orpik and Kris Letang — to long-term contracts. Shero built on the team’s already strong foundation by adding key pieces in the 2010 offseason to set the Penguins up for long-term success. With shrewd maneuvering and an aggressive approach during the first day of free agency, he solidified the team’s blue line with the long-term signings of top-rated defensemen Paul Martin and Zbynek Michalek. Shero was named GM on May 25, 2006 and one of his first acts was to declare a goal of building a team that could compete for championships on a yearly basis. He revamped the team’s hockey operations staff and structure, upgraded professional and amateur scouting, added a team operations director and opened new lines of communication with the business side of the organization. In his first season, 2006-07, Shero led his team to its first playoff berth since 2001 and a 47-point improvement in the standings — the fourth-largest improvement from one season to the next in NHL history. Building on that success, the Penguins topped 100 points for the second straight season in 2007-08, winning their first division title since 1998 and advancing to the Stanley Cup Final, where they fell to Detroit. After a rocky start in 2008-09, the Penguins rallied when Bylsma was named head coach in February, finishing 18-3-4 to earn a playoff berth and then defeating Philadelphia, Washington, Carolina and Detroit en route to the Stanley Cup. Along the way, they twice overcame 2-0 deficits in games (against Washington and Detroit), won all four seriesclinching games on the road and won two Game Sevens on the road — including the 2-1 thriller at Detroit for the Cup. Ray’s father, Fred, had won two Stanley Cups as head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers in 1974 and 1975. The Sheros are one of the few father-son tandems to appear on the Cup. The late Fred Shero also was a coach and general manager with the New York Rangers. Ray built his hockey sense and managerial style during 14 seasons as an NHL assistant general manager — six with the Ottawa Senators and eight with the Nashville Predators. Shero played college hockey at St. Lawrence University, twice serving as team captain, and was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in 1982. He spent seven years as a player agent before making the transition to the front office. The native of St. Paul, Minn. 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 Jason Botterill enters his second full season as assistant general manager after being promoted to his current position on May 22, 2009 by general manager Ray Shero. As assistant GM, Botterill works closely with Shero on all hockeyrelated 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, 34, worked two seasons as director of hockey administration with the Penguins; his responsibilities included salary cap management, professional and amateur scouting and overseeing prospects development. Botterill’s avant-garde approach and understanding of the salary cap has been a major asset for the Penguins. Before joining Pittsburgh, Botterill worked with NHL Central Registry and also scouted for the Dallas Stars. Botterill was a first-round draft pick (20th overall) by Dallas in 1994 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. A native of Edmonton who grew up in Winnipeg, Botterill played four seasons at the University of Michigan, where he earned his MBA, and helped lead the Wolverines to the NCAA title in 1996. He also played for Team Canada at the World Junior Championships in 1994, 1995 and 1996, helping his team win gold medals in all three tournaments. He resides in Pittsburgh along with his wife, Andrea.

In just one-plus seasons behind the bench, Dan Bylsma has already become one of the most successful coaches in Penguins’ history. After being promoted to Penguins head coach in February 2009, Bylsma, 40, directed the team to its third Stanley Cup in franchise history — a feat previously accomplished by legendary coaches “Badger” Bob Johnson and Scott Bowman. In the process Bylsma became the 14th rookie head coach, and just the fourth in the past 50 years, to capture the Stanley Cup. Of those 14, only Montreal’s Al MacNeil (1970-71) took over mid-season. Bylsma has the best regular-season winning percentage (.659) in team history, and is tied with Bowman for most postseason victories (23) and series victories (5). He also became the eighth-fastest head coach in NHL history to hit the 50-win mark (78 games). All-time under Bylsma, the Penguins boast a 65-31-11 regular-season record; 35-13-5 home record; 31-17-6 road mark; 40-3-3 when leading after two periods; 42-1-1 when scoring four or more goals; and 43-9-6 when scoring first. In 2009-10 the Grand Haven, Mich. native completed his first full NHL season behind the bench for Pittsburgh, leading the club to a 47-28-7 record for 101 points — breaking 100 points for the sixth time in franchise history and for the third time in the last four years — finishing only two points behind New Jersey for the Atlantic Division title. Bylsma played nine NHL seasons as a right winger with Los Angeles and Anaheim from 1995-2004. He played 429 NHL regular-season games, recording 19 goals and 62 points, and also played in the 2003 Stanley Cup Final with Anaheim. He began his coaching career as an assistant with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks of the AHL in 2004-05 and made his NHL coaching debut as an assistant with the New York Islanders in 2005-06. Bylsma was an assistant coach at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for two seasons from 2006-08 and was named head coach at the start of the 2008-09 season. He went 35-16-1-2 in 54 games with WB/S before being promoted to Pittsburgh. He played four seasons of college hockey at Bowling Green. Dan and his wife, Mary Beth, have one son and reside in the North Hills.

MIKE LANGE One of the most unique broadcasters in professional sports, Mike Lange enters his 35th season with the Penguins and will handle radio play-by-play on the club’s flagship station, 105.9 FM The X. 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 Two-time Stanley Cup champion Phil Bourque begins his seventh 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 (75+89) in 344 regular-season games with the Penguins between 1983 and 1992. For his career he totaled 199 points (88+111) 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 FSN Pittsburgh’s coverage of Penguins hockey.

BOB GROVE After a 17-year career as the Penguins beat writer for the Washington Observer-Reporter, Bob Grove joined the team’s radio broadcasts in 1998 as a frequent studio host/co-host and is now in his sixth season as full-time host of the pre- and post-game broadcasts and intermissions on the Penguins Hockey Network. Grove wrote Pittsburgh Penguins: The Official History of the First 30 Years in 1997 and has contributed game notes to GOAL Magazine inserts or Icetime programs for every Pittsburgh home game since 1986. He was also a contributor to the second edition of Total Hockey and to The Game I’ll Never Forget. He is a senior writer covering hockey for the Pittsburgh Sports Report and also hosts “Heineken Hockey Hour” and “Bob Grove’s Hot Stove” on Penguins Radio at 105.9-HD 2.

INCREDIBLE ICEBURGH A delight for children of all ages, Penguins mascot Iceburgh not only provides fans with energetic game night entertainment but this large, fluffy bird can often be spied at a number 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 home games, fans most definitely notice the antics of Iceburgh leading sections of fans in cheers, greeting children on the concourse or displaying his athleticism on-ice between periods. Our delightful mascot has also made his debut in film and television. He starred alongside Jean Claude Van Damme in the motion picture “Sudden Death” and has taken part in various ESPN commercials and television promos in the Pittsburgh area. Along with a host of community festivals, fairs and fundraisers, Iceburgh’s annual community calendar also includes many school visits. In 2005, the “Iceburgh Goes to School” program was created with Iceburgh visiting local elementary schools. Although Iceburgh does not speak, he does convey a range of emotions through vocalizations and gestures. Please visit pittsburghpenguins.com if you would be interested in Iceburgh appearing at your next event.

UNSUNG ORPIK LEADS PENGUINS DEFENSE Some say the best line of attack is a good defense, and the Penguins defensemen have taken this old adage to heart. One defenseman in particular has quietly been going about his work as the heart and soul of the Penguins defense. Yet Brooks Orpik is reluctant to take any plaudits as the key man in the Penguins’ defensive unit. “I think everyone collectively has been very good,” Orpik said. “Everyone provides something a little different, and everyone has been very consistent all year.” Whether he acknowledges it or not, Orpik is regarded by many as the lynchpin which holds the unit together. Orpik, 30, rarely hits the headlines. Yet his consistent and solid displays on the back end have been commonplace for a while now. In his seventh full NHL season with the Penguins, he is currently the longest-tenured player, having played in 551 games for Pittsburgh. The rugged defenseman’s experience is vital to those around him. “He is a rock back there on the blue line,” Paul Martin said. “He provides the work ethic and toughness. He does his job every night. You know what you are going to get from him and a lot of guys look up to him.”

With 551 games played, Brooks Orpik is currently the longest-tenured player on the roster. continued on page 61

THE MOST FUN YOU CAN HAVE WITH THE PENGUINS, WITHOUT GOING TO THE GAME!


continued from page 59

His inspiring defensive play has helped to keep the Penguins’ current goals-against average at 2.33 goals per game, which ranks fourth in the NHL as of Jan. 18. The Penguins defensive unit is a very cohesive one, with its members unwilling to take credit for their excellent goals-against average. They instead put that impressive number down to being able to create a seamless transition between defensive lines and feeding off each other’s ability as aggressive and skillful defenders. “It’s about the whole group,” Martin said. “We have six or seven people who can step in and play, as opposed to just the four that get a lot of minutes, and that means a lot down the stretch in the playoffs.” But to blueliner Alex Goligoski, there is no doubt who the defensive leader is. “He is definitely someone I look up to,” Goligoski said. “He is a true professional. He is the first guy in here, last guy out. He is always stretching, making sure he’s feeling good. He is obviously in great shape and plays the game the right way, so he is definitely a great role model for us.” In terms of being one of the leaders of the defense, Orpik is well-versed in letting his play on the ice do the talking. Yet when something needs to be said to cajole fellow defensemen, he certainly doesn’t shirk the responsibility to do so. “He is vocal,” Goligoski said. “We know how he is going to go out and play and he expects us to play that way. And that’s good, Fellow players like Alex Goligoski look especially with the way we up to Brooks Orpik as a role model. want to play the game.” The 6-foot-2, 219-pound Orpik is known as a hard-hitting defenseman who has a knack of delivering damaging blows to opposing attackers at pivotal moments. He is on pace to reach 220 hits this season, a feat which he has reached in his last five seasons. Yet Kris

Kris Letang says Orpik’s physical play inspires all of the other defensemen to raise their game.

Letang, who has played alongside Orpik for most of the season, knows his partner’s game isn’t just about the hitting. “He talks to me a lot about the situations on the ice, and he has helped me with my positioning,” Letang said, who has used this advice to hammer home 40 points in 46 games. But Letang does believe Orpik’s physical play inspires the whole defensive corps to raise their game. “He is a physical guy, he is tough to play against,” Letang said. “When you are on the bench and you see that, it pumps you up and makes you focus for games.” Orpik’s unselfish and dedicated nature as a team leader is unmistakable. Instead of focusing on the qualities he brings to the table, he is keen to give credit to not only his fellow defensemen, but also the crucial last line of defense — the goaltenders. “Obviously the goaltending has been very good,” Orpik said. “They will probably say that we have been good in front of them, but it works both ways. We kind of feed off each other. When they are playing well, we seem to be playing a little better. That breeds confidence, and vice versa.”

TONIGHT’S COMPETITORS ARE:

ROUND ONE HEAT TWO: ALLEGHENY BADGERS A MAJOR GOLD VS. MT. LEBANON HORNETS A MAJOR GOLD The one-on-one competition features Aaron Bartify/Joel Basenback from Allegheny Badgers A Major Gold against Ben Schneck/ Jonathan Bleier from Mt. Lebanon Hornets A Major Gold. You can also view this and previously shown competitions at pittsburghpenguins.com.

On Saturday, October 16, sixteen youth hockey teams from the Pittsburgh Amateur Hockey League (PAHL) in the Pee Wee age group (age 11 - 12) participated in a shootout competition at CONSOL Energy Center. The event was videotaped to be shown in episodes at Penguins home games. The first round of competition featured heats between two teams striving to advance to the next round. Sixteen teams fielded five skaters shooting against the opposing team’s goalie. After each team competition, an individual shooter and goaltender squared off against the opposing team’s individual tandem for a one-on-one competition. Each winning team and pair of individuals advanced to the next round of eight teams/tandems. The format repeated as teams and individual pairs advanced through the quarter-final heats to move on to the semi-finals. Robust competition marked the semi-final round for teams and individual tandems. The remaining two teams and individual tandems then had to “leave it all on the ice” in vying for the championship. Early in the second intermission of each Penguins home game the various heats in the competition will be featured. Enjoy each episode.

I feel

.

Ask a grieving child how they’re feeling and you may get a lot of answers. Or none at all. For many, finding the words to express their feelings can be difficult. But while finding the right words may not be easy, finding the right place to turn to for help can be. At the Caring Place, we’re here when grieving children need someone to listen, to talk, or to just sit and be. For more information about one of our peer support groups or to volunteer, call us today.

OUR NEW HOME CONSOL Energy Center opened in August, 2010 as Pittsburgh’s new multi-purpose entertainment venue — home of the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins as well as other professional and collegiate sports, concerts, children’s shows, skating shows and more. It replaced the old Civic Arena/Mellon Arena, which had operated since 1961 and was home of the Penguins from their inception in 1967. It was the oldest arena in the National Hockey League. “CONSOL Energy Center represents an exciting new era for the city, the region and the Pittsburgh Penguins,” said David Morehouse, CEO of the hockey team. “With open concourses, comfortable seating, cutting-edge technology, a state-of-the-art scoreboard and sound system, and an extensive array of food and beverage options, it is

It is a green building and is the first NHL arena to attain LEED Gold certification.

In its first few months, CONSOL Energy Center also hosted such acts as Lady Gaga and The Eagles; was home to the Pittsburgh College Hockey Showcase with Robert Morris; and featured multiple NCAA Division I basketball games, including the “City Game” between Pitt and Duquesne and the Big East/SEC Challenge. In its first season of operation, CONSOL Energy Center also will be home to the Pittsburgh Power of the Arena Football League — bringing indoor football back to the city for the first time in almost 20 years. A funding plan for the new arena project was completed in March, 2007, thanks to the combined efforts of Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato and Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, among others. The Sports & Exhibition Authority owns the building on behalf of the city and county, and the Penguins have the lease. The new arena is managed by SMG, with Jay Roberts serving as general manager.

MY HOMETOWN: JORDAN STAAL

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO What was it like growing up in Thunder Bay? It’s a hockey town, no question. We had a lot of cold winters, so a lot of hockey being played in that respect. It’s got a small town feel and a lot of good people. I’ve got lots of family and friends still there. What did you do during the summer? Now it’s different. When I go back in the summer, I have a place on the lake. I like to do a little fishing and golf as much as I can, and just relax. Where did you and your friends hang out? Growing up, my buddy’s house was the go-to spot. We hung out there most of the time. It’s not a very big town, so there’s not a whole lot to do. What’s an underrated part of your hometown? I think there are a lot of great lakes and tons of fishing and stuff like that, so if you like the outdoors then it’s a lot of fun. It’s a small town, so it has that home feel, and it’s really comfortable and there are a lot of good people there. What was your favorite sports team? I was a Toronto Maple Leafs fan. It was the only channel we had so we watched them a lot growing up. Later on, once I started moving all over the place that changed, but I was definitely born a Leafs fan. What was your favorite restaurant? My mom’s cooking! We didn’t go out to eat a lot when we were younger, definitely nowhere near as much as I do now. I don’t cook a whole lot — you can’t beat your mom’s cooking. What’s something people don’t know about your hometown? The summers are actually really nice and really warm. I don’t know if I could live through a winter anymore, but when I go back in the summer it’s beautiful. It’s not too humid, it’s just right. What was your favorite part about growing up there? Everyone around there doesn’t really like the winter, but when I was a kid I loved it. We wouldn’t be sitting around moping about it; we went out and had fun snowmobiling, skating and skiing. There are a lot of outdoor activities I liked doing in the winter, so that’s what I enjoyed most about my hometown. 120

OUR MISSION To actively promote physical well being, encourage teamwork, stress the value of education and provide essential life skills to young people in our community through youth hockey and other activities.

WHAT’S HAPPENING DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAMS LEARN TO PLAY HOCKEY With the support of Sidney Crosby, Reebok and Dick’s Sporting Goods over the last three years the Penguins have provided over 2,200 sets of equipment free to local youth ages 4 to 7. This year, four girls-only programs will operate along side of our standard co-ed Little Penguins program. OPEN PRACTICE The Pittsburgh Penguins and the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation presented the 2010 Pittsburgh Penguins Open Hockey Practice on Thursday, December 9, 2010 at the brand new CONSOL Energy Center. The event offered a rare opportunity for over 10,000 school students in grades one through eight from across Allegheny County to see the Pittsburgh Penguins at work. Students were entertained leading up to the start of practice with informational videos about behind-thescenes aspects of the team/facility, as well as educational elements related to the game (geography, math, etc.) each student received an activity book as a takeaway.

WELLNESS TRAINING K.A.M.P. AT UPMC SOUTHSIDE Presented by UPMC Sports Medicine and the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation. Young hockey players were divided into groups and performed a rotation of 10-minute drills, while UPMC Sports Medicine professionals provided assessments. While the athletes trained, their parents received lectures on nutrition, concussions and sports injuries in general. Over 150 athletes and parents attended the event.

132


CONCUSSION PROGRAM The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation, in conjunction with UPMC Sports Medicine, are prepared to announce a comprehensive program for baseline testing and concussion education for all youth sports beginning at the earliest possible ages.

PENGUINS FOUNDATION CHARITY ASSIST RAFFLE The Pittsburgh Penguins and the Penguins Foundation are pleased to host the Penguins Foundation Charity ASSIST Raffle, raising money for a variety of local charities in the western Pennsylvania area. Look for ticket sellers in their red aprons at every home game. The minimum prize each game is $2,000!

NEW SPORTS INITIATIVES — COMING IN 2011 OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES In its efforts to fight the sedentary tendencies of America’s youth, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation is excited to offer outdoor programs to promote fun and organized physical activity.  The program, to be revealed in January, is designed to take advantage of the growing popularity of hockey in the tri-state area by affording young players access to existing facilities and newly constructed outdoor multi-use athletic facilities. These programs provide safe areas to play games under the supervision of established organizations.   SCHOOL PROGRAMS • FIRST STRIDE In the ultimate Field Trip, participating schools will be provided with a Penguins-themed hockey experience: Students will be transported to and from a local ice arena, outfitted in full hockey equipment and learn fundamental hockey skills. The program will conclude with each child scoring their first goal! • GYM CLASS FOR A DAY This program is designed for 4th and 5th grade physical education classes and will provide basic skills and game instruction. Gym Class for a Day will transform your school gymnasium or parking lot into a dek/ball hockey rink. The Penguins will provide equipment for an ongoing P.E. Hockey Program. Penguins staff will be on hand to assist P.E. teachers in demonstrating and administering basic hockey skills and games. Each student will be provided a hockey ball and Penguins t-shirt to take home and continue practicing their skills.

BETHEL PARK DEFEATS RIVAL MT. LEBANON In a game between two Class AAA rivals, it was the Bethel Park Blackhawks that walked away with a win against the Mt. Lebanon Blue Devils. From the drop of the puck, both teams came out hitting and neither squad was willing to back down. The play went from end to end with both teams getting quality chances, but it was Mt. Lebanon who capitalized first. Two minutes into the game, the Blue Devils’ Christopher Meriney intercepted a Bethel Park clearing attempt at the blue line and found a wide-open Christopher Ford standing in front of Blackhawks goalie Austin McGinty. Ford had enough time to make a quick move and put the puck between McGinty’s pads to give Mt. Lebanon a 1-0 lead. Mt. Lebanon had the momentum going their way until they took an interference penalty about five minutes into the period. Bethel Park then tied the game on the power play when Michael Shipley received a pass from Daniel Kucerovy at the blue line and took a slap shot that deflected off a Mt. Lebanon defender and into the back of the net. Bethel Park took the lead just 1:22 into the second period when Austin Jameyson was able to beat the Mt. Lebanon goalie, Clay Wyda, with a shot over the glove. Bethel Park increased their lead less than two minutes later with a power-play goal by Daniel Kucerovy. Mt. Lebanon, however, answered Bethel Park’s power-play goal less than two minutes later. The Blue Devils’ Christopher O’Bratka made a beautiful pass from his own zone to send his teammate Christopher Meriney on a breakaway. Meriney got close to McGinty, made a move to his forehand and put the puck under the crossbar to cut Bethel Park’s lead to one goal. Mt. Lebanon came out looking to tie the game in the third period. However, the Blue Devils took a penalty that led to Bethel Park’s third power play goal of the game. The Blackhawks’ Zachary Volzer found a loose puck in front of the net and slid it past the Mt. Lebanon goalie to give Bethel Park a 4-2 lead with less than six minutes left in the game. Mt. Lebanon was unable to generate any more offense the rest of the period, with the game ending in a 4-2 Bethel Park victory. 145


THE PENGUINS GAME VAULT MAY 26, 2009 • PENGUINS 4, HURRICANES 1

© Getty Images

RBC CENTER Most hockey experts predicted that the Pittsburgh Penguins would outlast the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2009 Eastern Conference finals. What they didn’t foreshadow was that the Penguins were going to make disposing the ‘Canes look so easy. In a battle between two teams who needed hot finishes down Contrary to their actions in 2008, the team captains proudly the stretch just to qualify for the held the Wales Conference trophy in 2009. postseason — Pittsburgh finished the regular-season on an 18-3-4 tear while the Hurricanes went 20-8-2 over their final 30 games — it was the Penguins who had Carolina on the brink of extinction as they held a commanding 3-0 series lead entering Game Four at RBC Center on May 26, 2009. With its back against the wall, Carolina came out firing on Marc-Andre Fleury and the Penguins early, and the result was an early 1-0 lead just 1:36 into the opening period on an Eric Staal tally. Unfortunately for all the paid partisans rooting on the black-and-red it was all downhill from there for the home squad. Ruslan Fedotenko answered Staal’s goal with his sixth tally of the postseason at 8:21 to even the score at 1-1. The Penguins took the lead for good — and pretty much let the sails right out of Carolina’s ship — late in the first period when Maxime Talbot scored the eventual game-winner on a lucky bounce. Skating down the ice 1-on-1 against the Hurricanes Anton Babchuk, Talbot let a wrist shot go from the left circle that appeared to be blocked by the stick of Babchuk — expect that instead of landing harmlessly in the corner, the puck jumped over the glove of a surprised Cam Ward and into the net for a 2-1 Pittsburgh lead. Bill Guerin gave the Penguins breathing room with an insurance goal during the second period and former Hurricane Craig Adams sealed the victory with a late empty-net marker that finished off the 4-1 victory that sent Pittsburgh back to the Stanley Cup Final for the second-consecutive season. In the ensuing Wales Conference Trophy presentation the Penguins bucked tradition and skated with the trophy, hoping that touching the Prince of Wales Trophy would change their luck from the previous season and help them raise the bigger chalice they had their eyes fixated upon — the Stanley Cup. “We didn’t touch [the trophy] last year, and things didn’t go the way we wanted,” captain Sidney Crosby said following the game. “I thought we’d change it up this year.” 147


REFINING THE PROCESS A mid-January win in Boston gave the Penguins a mark of 2-2-1 through the first five games of the season’s second half, a slight improvement over the 2-3 record the Penguins had posted coming out of the gate in October. That would be significant if A) the Penguins could be certain there was another 12-game winning streak in their future and B) head coach Dan Bylsma was interested in maintaining status quo over the season’s second 41 games. But they can’t and he’s not. For Bylsma, it’s all about continuing to get better, even after a first half that saw the Penguins post a 26-12-3 ledger that was among the NHL’s best. “It’s a process,” Bylsma insisted. “It’s one our team is always in and we still think we have a long way to go. We’re not going to stand pat. We’re not going to try to maintain a level of consistency. We’re going to be working to get better in all areas of our game. “I believe in making your strengths better but I also believe in recognizing what you need to improve on and getting better in those areas. I think there are areas where we think we can improve on, but there are [also] areas that are With a victory in Boston on Jan. 15, the Penguins began the season’s second half with a better record than the first half.

improve on and become better.” Captain Sidney Crosby used the very same word — “process” — in assessing where the Penguins have been and the challenges ahead. “You never know how it’s going to go, how you’re going to get to certain points or how you’re going to get through certain things,” Crosby said. “The first half was kind of the story of the NHL in general. You go through a lot and there are a lot of things that go on in a short period of time. You’ve just got to be persistent and consistent and I think that’s what we were. “I think it’s a process. I think we ironed out some things in the first half but there are other things we can certainly improve on. Consistency’s a big one, but we’re doing a lot of things right and a big reason why is because of the details that are so important. We focus on those and we like our chances every night.” Among the wrinkles that needed to be ironed out in the first half were the assimilation of new players and the adjustment to a new home facility, Marc-Andre Fleury’s earlyseason struggles, Jordan Staal’s extended absence and a power play that was MIA on too many occasions. The list of issues that must continue to be addressed includes secondary scoring, Evgeni Malkin’s relative lack of production and the number of penalties the Penguins have been taking. Yet even if they’re as successful in the second half at shoring up weaknesses and strengthening strengths as they were in the first, such improvements may not be reflected in the standings. “There’s so much parity,” defenseman Brooks Orpik said. “And then the way the point system works now with the overtimes and the shootouts, I think that’s one of the main reasons why you don’t see separation. There are so many three-point games around the league. You’re kind of rooting for one team to win in regulation when it’s two Eastern Conference teams just so there’s not three points awarded. “I remember when we were on a 12-game winning streak. We didn’t get much breathing room from that.” Nor are they expecting to achieve much of that in the season’s second half. “There’s a lot of parity,” forward Mike Rupp agreed. “You never know, every night you’re going to have a tough game.” As they attack the second half the goal is to keep the pedal down, and to learn and grow from any bumps in the road they may encounter as well as they did in the first half of the schedule in an effort to become a playoff-ready team come April. “If you would have told us on the New Year we’d be a couple points off the best record in the East we’d haven taken it, for sure we would,” Rupp said. “Do we have some things we wish we would have done better? Yeah, for sure. “But through those times of struggling, I don’t know if we would have won the way we did without going through that.” Mike Prisuta is the sports director for WDVE-FM and the sports anchor for “Jim, Randy & the DVE Morning Show.”

Despite a rough start Marc-Andre Fleury is now playing at the top of his game.

After missing the first half of the season due to injures, Jordan Staal quickly became a contributer when he returned.

PENS PROFILE CHRIS KUNITZ

Chris Kunitz is scoring goals. He’s on pace for a career high, in fact. It’s the fruit of skating on a line with Sidney Crosby.  But for Kunitz, it’s all about the forecheck. His crash-bang-wallop, North-South style is as prevalent as ever, a perfect fit for Crosby and Pascal Dupuis, the Penguins’ first line when all are available. Kunitz gets down the ice quick and when he arrives, he hits somebody.  “[The forecheck] is something we’ve tried to get better at,” said Kunitz. “We didn’t score much on the rush a whole lot last year, or early this year. But the forecheck is about being resilient, and about back pressure. Trying to get their guys to turn pucks over. “You’ve got to be relentless on pucks, try to hunt them down. More turnovers lead to more offensive chances for us.” That last sentence should be on the Kunitz family’s coat of arms. Nobody does it better. Kunitz had 15 goals and 16 assists in his first 44 games. He netted a hat trick Jan. 5 as the Penguins routed Tampa Bay 8-1 at CONSOL Energy Center, then scored in consecutive road games as the Penguins won 5-2 at Montreal on Jan. 12 and 3-2 at Boston on Jan. 15. Six of his 15 goals had come on the power play. The 6-foot, 193-pound Saskatchewan native was establishing himself as a net-front presence.

Chris Kunitz netted a hat trick on Jan. 5 in the Penguins’ 8-1 defeat of Tampa Bay.

WHEN ASKED TO COMPARE CROSBY AND MALKIN, KUNITZ SAID, “THEY’RE BOTH SPECIAL PLAYERS. WE KNOW THEY BOTH DO THINGS EXTREMELY WELL.”

“You want to do a few things there,” Kunitz said. “You want to make it tough if a defenseman is trying to get out in front of you. You want to keep him from getting into shooting lanes.  “You want to look for rebounds and get your stick on tips. Another thing is trying to recover pucks, trying to know where the puck’s going to go after it deflects off your stick or deflects off the goalie. Get a rebound or a loose puck and get it to the net for a teammate.”

Punishing duty, sure. But not as punishing as it once was. “It’s calmed down the last few years,” Kunitz said. “But guys are shooting the puck pretty hard, and there’s the contact when you’re being pushed one way and another guy’s coming in. “Usually it’s the goalies that do the most damage now. They’re kind of hacking at your legs and giving you a little bit of a cross-check.” One of his PPGs came in the Jan. 12 victory at Montreal. The Penguins’ man-advantage unit was red-hot that evening, going 4-for-6. “A game like that, it just seemed like everything was clicking,” said Kunitz, 31. “Special teams go through ups and downs all year. You want them to be a little more consistent. Average. It’s nice to get spurts, but we know we still have areas to improve on. “Game in and game out, what’s probably going to win each individual game is a key moment on special teams.”  As for the Montreal outburst, Kunitz said, “We had really good entries. We got into their end with control of the puck. We didn’t have to dump it in to get it back. Then we just moved the puck and shot it real quick. We kept Montreal from blocking a lot of shots. We got pucks on net and we had guys going there.” When Crosby went down with a concussion vs. Tampa Bay, Kunitz had to break in some new centers. Among them: Evgeni Malkin. When asked to compare Crosby and Malkin, Kunitz said, “They’re both special players. We know they both do things extremely well. “Geno’s a guy that creates by driving people back and cutting to the middle. Sid’s a guy you give the puck to and he creates by going in a straight line, or he can use his shot. It’s a pleasure playing with both. I just play my game. I play in a straight line and retrieve pucks as quick as I can. Hopefully, good things happen.” So far, so good. As noted, Kunitz is on pace to break his career high for goals (25 with Anaheim in 2006-07). Kunitz is quick to credit others for his success: “It’s obviously a benefit from playing so much with Sidney, and a lot of it has to do with being in the right spot at the right time on the power play.” He’s also quick to cite bigger priorities: “[A career high in goals] Kunitz acknowledges that a big part of his game would be nice. But, obviously, team is chasing down and retrieving pucks. goals are more important.” Mark Madden hosts a radio show 3-6 p.m. weekdays on WXDX-FM (105.9).
