1909 and 1925. And I didn't look it up

Well done, sir.

1903 and 1904?


I think it was '09 & '25...'25 came from down 3-1 to beat the Washington Senators & Walter Johnson.

Good job. Were you there? Just kidding, just kidding.

1909 and 1925.

Seems to be the concensus, good job.

The Washington Senators blew a 3-1 lead.

And none of you trivia knowing MFers bothered to point out to him that it was 1971 and. Not 72? And you call yourself fans.

Last thought of the night....few short days ago, the debate was whether Murray keeps his net. He didn't surrender another goal.

How Murray did not get the first star tonight (or any star for that matter) is beyond me.

Correction: he got first star. I thought I read somewhere that It was Rinne, Hornquist, and Schultz.

Think about it. One more Cup win and they are as dominant in the Super Bowl era as the Steelers have been.

I agree that Murray/Fleury are MVP.

How's this for a little trivia. Night after Bucs won the '71 series, Steelers lost in KC....game where Dave Smith lost control of the ball showboating on the way to the end zone....touchback resulted.

If they could split the trophy I would have agreed that was the correct choice. But Sid was just as deserving even if others are thinking the voting was fixed

I said before this game that if Ellis plays, this series is going back to Pittsburgh. Thank god I was wrong with my prediction :lol:

I was texting my buddy and I called Hags with the game winner- another wrong prognostication :)

1909 was the year Honus Wagner bested Ty Cobb in the series. No I wasn't there. :lol:

Even if I don't post much here, as I watch most all of the games on DRV hour or two delay, I'm right there with all of you by the end. Appreciate all of the Pens knowledge posted here. What a great run this year (and last) and what a great win last night! So proud of this team and it's fans!

Time for a three-peat.

Come on Bucs and Steelers (and bring back the Condors if you want) make us the true City of Champions this year!

had to look the Rens up--never heard of them, but I was 3 at the time they folded and the family didn't more to Westmoreland Cty until 1966...

I'll go a little better. All this biz about no Pittsburgh team having won a championship at home since the '60 World Series is incorrect. The Pittsburgh Pipers, with Connie Hawkins, won the ABA Championship in that league's initial season, 1968. I was there for Game 7, when the Pipers beat Doug Moe and the New Orleans Bucs. The PIpers promptly moved to Minnesota, moved back a year later as the Condors.

And yes, Connie Hawkins previously played for the Pittsburgh Rens.

People should remember that from last year when the Pens were on the road--that was the big trivia question at the time...

Ellis was definitely far from 100% -- he looked about 50% -- he probably shouldn't have even played

That was 14 years before I was born so I get a pass.
