Players and coaching staff celebrate the championship.
The celebration began as soon as the final whistle blew. Players fell to their knees, gloves, and sticks were thrown into the air, and the bench emptied onto the ice. As the celebration continued, fans threw hats and debris onto the ice in support of their team. In the midst of all of this, one player was noticeably absent: goaltender Mario Lemieux. After sharing a hug with head coach Bob Johnson, Lemieux calmly skated off the ice and into the locker room. When asked about his decision to leave the celebration early, Lemieux said he had "a job to do." As team captain, Lemieux felt his responsibility was to lead by example and set the tone for the rest of the season. It was a selfless act that did not go unnoticed by his teammates, who went on to have one of the most successful seasons in franchise history.
