Crosby makes special delivery to season-ticket holder

Castle Shannon's Alice Kilgore has been a Penguins season-ticket holder for nearly 40 years. Prior to the 2007-08 hockey season, Penguins captain Sidney Crosby made a special hand delivery of Alice’s season tickets.

At that time a local Pittsburgh reporter asked her if she thought the Penguins would win the Stanley Cup.

"Not this year, maybe next year,” she said gently tapping Crosby on the shoulder.

So it was said, and so it came to pass.

Alice's prediction turned out to be dead on accurate. While the 2007-08 Penguins team fell short of their championship quest, the following season, just as Alice said, Pittsburgh went on to hoist the coveted trophy after knocking off the Detroit Red Wings in seven games.

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
