Tom Fitzgerald scored midway through overtime to win the 1992 contest while Ron Hextall had the shutout in the 1994 game -- it was his second of three consecutive home shutouts. Perhaps the best game, though, was last year. Mike Sillinger scored at 19:33 of the third to snap Pittsburgh's 16-game point streak.
