Mario Lemieux Week Day 2: One Goal, Two Cups

The 1991 Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins defeat the North Stars 8-0 in Game 6 to win their first championship. "Go for it Mario, go for it"

Mario scores the game-winning goal as time almost runs out in Game 1 of the 1992 Cup Finals. How the hell do you let Lemieux get that wide open at the end of a tie game?

This is one of my favorite memories of Lemieux. He snatches the puck in his own zone and split the North Star defense and Jon Casey for an amazing goal in Game 2 of the 1991 Stanley Cup Finals.
