Watch these Stanley Cup 'banner' moments in Penguins' history
The rafters at PPG Paints Arena could use some new decor.
A new championship banner? It'll fit right in with the four others.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will raise their fifth banner at the team's season opener tonight to kick off the 2017-18 season.
If the team's four previous ceremonies — in which the Stanley Cup has made a center ice appearance to start the new season — are any indicator, tonight's ceremony is sure to spark some emotions in players and black-and-gold clad fans.
Oh, and the St. Louis Blues will be there , too.
If you need a reason to get pumped up for the game — or just like listening to classic Mike Lange goal calls — here are highlights from the team's four pregame ceremonies after winning the Cup.
First, in 1991, for the team's first Stanley Cup.
And again, in 1992, with musical accompaniment "We Are the Champions" at the Civic Arena.
The banners moved across the street to then-Consol Energy Center and were joined in 2009 in the rafters by the team's third championship banner.
The 2016 championship banner was raised just a few days shy of a year ago at the arena.
The pregame video and banner raising ceremony at Wednesday's game will begin at 7:45 p.m. The puck drops at 8.
