Penguins' 1991 Stanley Cup clincher re-created with NHL '91 video game

If you haven't checked out today's entry in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Empty Netters blog, this is worth taking a look.

Remember when the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Minnesota North Stars in 1991 to win their first Stanley Cup championship?

Seth Rorabaugh hooked up Penguins fans to a cool web page. It features a video clip where someone re-created that Game 6 clincher at Metropolitan Sports Center in Bloomington, Minnesota by ways of NHL Hockey (also known as NHL '91), the original Electronic Arts game.

The video game cover to NHL Hockey by Electronic Arts.

First, here is the blog entry...

I'm crushed. Hockey is losing its winter season luster with another team hitting the rink, The Texas Stars.

Land of no snow accumlation and maybe a day or two of temperatures below freezing.

Will the Texas Stars take over where the Austin Ice Bats left off?

The Texas Stars replace the Austin Ice Bats in terms of minor league hockey in the area, yes. Only here, the "baby" Stars are an upgrade to the American Hockey League level.
