It is not often two players accomplish the same milestone on the same day but that is the moment we have here for “This Day” today.  The Pittsburgh Penguins really had a great thing going with #66 and #87 ladies and gentlemen.  It was so good that they won two Stanley Cups and set the fantasy hockey worlds on fire back in the day.  Today’s moment is from 16 years ago and really is something rare in hockey history.  Enjoy the video first and then the moment.
