For the past 43 years, Mellon Arena has been the home of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
For some, it has been home, a place for celebration, despair, fights, and tears.
I have arranged, in chronological order, 20 unforgettable moments at Mellon Arena. Just a taste of the many memories we as fans were lucky enough to experience.
As the life clock on this aged Pittsburgh landmark continues to tick, the future of the arena remains uncertain. Will it be torn down? Renovated?
While the arena is old and out-dated, its physical presence could never represent how much this place means to the people of Pittsburgh, especially Penguins fans.
So as we move on to a bigger and better arena across the street, I want to give one final salute to the place that will always be dear to the hearts of Penguins fans.
The place where we were able to witness Mario Lemieux's heroics, Jaromir Jagr's finesse, and Sidney Crosby's and Evgeni Malkin's rise to super stardom.
It has always been a great day for hockey at Mellon Arena.
