Best in the Game: The Turbulent Story of the Pittsburgh Penguins' Rise to Stanley Cup Champions
The Penguins entered the 1992 season as Stanley Cup champions and left the same way, but triumph came only after a season of tragedy and chaos. The coach they revered, Bob Johnson, was felled by brain cancer; several players faced grueling, high-stakes contract disputes; others were traded as the season unfolded; and the franchise was sold amidst great controversy. But the Penguins didn't just cope with adversity -- they thrived on it. After 23 seasons of failure and frustration, the Penguins fought all the way to the Stanley Cup championship and staked their claim as Best in the Game.
