Pittsburgh Penguins Tickets

Pittsburgh Penguins made it to the conference finals last season. The current squad led by Olympic Gold medalist Sidney Crosby, comprises of many skilled players. Injury of three players namely Kris Letang, Tomas Vokoun and Matt D'Agostini at the start of the season is a setback for the team.

Formation and Early Years

Pittsburgh Penguins was formed in 1967 as a primary NHL expansion team. Dressed in a combination of white, navy and powder blue, the team opened its first season with George Sullivan as the coach. During its initial years, Pittsburgh Penguins did not make much of an impression. Financial difficulties added to their problems and they were almost relocated to Seattle due to bankruptcy. In spite of the issues, the team kept on improving their performance and made their presence felt on quite a few occasions.

Later Years

After a mixed record of mediocre and a few noteworthy performances, Pittsburgh Penguins rose to prominence in the nineties. In 1990, they claimed an impressive 8–0 victory over Minnesota North Stars to win their first ever Stanley Cup. They repeated the feat next year as well by defeating Chicago Blackhawks to take the trophy home for the second time. Still improving, the team went on to win their first ever Presidents' Trophy. Other achievements of the team in the nineties include an impressive record of winning seventeen games in a row.

The late nineties saw the team go through more financial problems when it faced bankruptcy due to high debts. Former player Mario Lemieux proved to be the Penguins savior and bought the team in 1999. He also started playing for the team, becoming the first ever player–owner in the league. Under his ownership the team started the new century with occasional wins. More problems for the team came with the reports of possible relocation. Shortly, a decision was reached to keep the franchise in Pittsburgh and Consol Energy Center was announced as the team’s new home.

Recent Years

In 2007, the team showed tremendous improvement in their performance. Not only did they win division and conference titles but also made it to the league finals. The Penguins returned to the league finals the next year as well and won the Stanley Cup for the third time. Continuing with great performance, they opened the 2009- 10 season with an impressive record of winning seven road games. Following years saw Pittsburgh Penguins winning a top seed standing in the Eastern Conference due to their persistent great performance.
