The ’12-’13 Pittsburgh Penguins were the 10th seed in the inaugural Ultimate NHL Playoff. They had a First Round Bye, but were then swept in the Second Round by eventual Quarterfinalists, the 23rd-seeded ’79-’80 Buffalo Sabres.

Players to Watch:

  • F – Mario Lemieux – He’s “Super Mario” for a reason. 690 goals, 1,033 assists and 1,723 points in 915 games.
  • RW – Jaromir Jagr – Second in Penguins history in scoring to only Mario. He has 1,079 points in 806 games.
  • C – Sidney Crosby – This is quite a trio. He’s gonna pass Jagr soon for second all-time in franchise scoring and it’s only because of recurring injury issues that he’s not already second behind Mario.
