Today In Pittsburgh Penguins History: 3/19/88

On this day in 1988, the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 7-0 at home.  Beating the Flyers was not as big of a deal other than the fact that seven DIFFERENT players scored the goals. That's right. SEVEN players.  Total individual stat line has over 20 points.

In the first period, Randy Cunneyworth scored a power play goal with assists from Paul Coffey and Zarley Zalapski.  Later in the period, Mario Lemieux scored the second goal with assists from Kevin Stevens and Zarley Zalapski.

The second period saw a trifecta of goals, first by Double Z assisted by Mario and Robby Brown, the second goal (another power play) by Kevin Stevens assisted by Double Z and Cunneyworth.  The third goal came later by Dan Quinn with assists by Troy Loney and Randy Cunnyworth again.

Already up 5-0, the Penguins continued the offensive onslaught, adding two more power play goals.  The first by Paul Coffey had assists by Lemieux and Quinn.  The final goal, with about a minute left in the game came from Doug Bodger, assisted by Lemieux and Paul Coffey.

Final point line:
Randy Cunnyworth - 1G, 2A, 3Pts
Mario Lemieux - 1G, 3A, 4Pts
Zarley Zalapski - 1G, 3A, 4Pts
