On this Date in Pittsburgh Penguins History

The Penguins played in front of the 100th straight sellout crowd at the Mellon Arena

The Penguins obtained Shean Donovan from waivers from the Atlanta Thrashers and acquired Jamie Pushor from the Columbus Blue Jackets for a fourth round pick in the 2003 NHL Amateur Draft

Baz Bastien, a former goalie, coach, and general manager for the Hornets and later general manager of the Penguins, was killed in a car accident as he returned from dinner honoring him; the players wore a simple black, screened armband for the three remaining home games of the 1982-83 season
