Pittsburgh Penguins Playoff TicketsIt's "a great day for hockey" when the Pittsburgh Penguins takes the ice, but that wasn't always the case. In 1984, after years of poor play and game attendance, the team was on the verge of relocation, but the drafting of future hockey Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux changed its fortunes. Along with fellow standout Jaromir Jagr, Lemieux propelled the Penguins to two consecutive Stanley Cups and made the Steel City a legitimate hockey town. However, the Penguins team was stumbling again in the late 1990s with the same problems. Lemieux, nearing the end of his career, saw an opportunity and forfeited his salary to become a co-owner while still playing. In 2005, the Penguins won the draft lottery, which enabled the team to choose Nova Scotia native Sidney Crosby first overall. Like Lemieux, Crosby became an immediate superstar, and the addition of Russian powerhouse Evgeni Malkin only strengthened the team. During Crosby's tenure as captain, the Penguins have won three more Stanley Cups, including back-to-back championships in 2016 and 2017, and it currently has the longest playoff streak in the NHL, having made the postseason for thirteen consecutive seasons.
