FOREVER HORNY

Patric Hornqvist’s time as a Penguin will be remembered for a lot, but nothing more so than his tie-breaking, Stanley Cup-winning goal with 95 seconds left in Game 6 of the 2017 final. It was vintage Hornqvist: Go to the net and do what’s required, even it’s not pretty.

Not every Stanley Cup victory has a defining occurrence. In 1991, for example, the Penguins won the Cup-clinching game 8-0 at Minnesota.

But Hornqvist’s bank-shot goal will live forever as one of the team’s indelible postseason moments. Right there with Mario Lemieux in Game 1 of the ’92 final, Max Talbot in Game 7 of the ’09 final and Frank Pietrangelo making “The Save” in the ’91 playoffs.

Hornqvist had some other big moments as a Penguin. Witness the videos below.

Here’s bidding a fond fare-thee-well to No. 72. He was the last pick in the 2005 NHL draft, and has done nothing but maximize ever since.
