The Save[edit | edit source]

Frank Pietrangelo is probably best remembered for one play in the 1991 Stanley Cup playoffs. In the first period of Game 6 of Pittsburgh's first-round playoff series at New Jersey, Pietrangelo dove to his left to make a dramatic glove save against the Devils' Peter Stastny, who was shooting toward an open net. The memorable play became known in Pittsburgh as "The Save." Pietrangelo's stop helped the Penguins to a 4-3 win and forced a seventh game. Pietrangelo then shut out the Devils 4-0 in Game 7.
