Fans clambering to see Mario Lemieux display his otherworldly talents one more time will get the chance at 6:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday when the NHL Network-U.S. airs "2011 Legends Classic From Heinz Field."
The alumni game played before the 2011 Bridgestone Winter Classic on the same Heinz Field ice featured some of the greats of the game for each team, including a roster of Penguins Hall of Famers that included Lemieux, Bryan Trottier, Ron Francis and Larry Murphy. Also playing for the Pens were Rick Tocchet, Rob Brown and Craig Simpson.
Capitals alums included Petr Bondra, Michal Pivonka and Don Beaupre.
"It was fun to be a part of it, play here outdoors," Lemieux said after the game. "The weather was beautiful. I saw some old faces again, guys I haven't seen for a long time, some guys from the Cup years and older guys. It was pretty special for all of us. These are memories that we can cherish for a long time."
