On this Date in Pittsburgh Penguins History

the Penguins beat Detroit to tie the series at two games with Crosby and Malkin each scoring a goal and an assist and Staal scoring a short-handed goal

Detroit eliminated the Penguins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup final (by a score of 3-2) making it the latest post-season game played by Pittsburgh (previously held by a game the Pens beat the Blackhawks to win the Cup on June 1, 1992; the record would later be held by their Game 7 Stanley Cup final win over Detroit in 2009 on June 12th)

Pierre Creamer was named Penguins head coach

Bob Berry replaces Penguins head coach Lou Angotti; Angotti holds the lowest winning percentage of any Penguins coach in team history (.238 and winning only 16 games in his only season with Pittsburgh)

Randy Carlyle wins the Norris Trophy and Rick Kehoe wins the Lady Byng Trophy
