The long awaited unveiling of the Pittsburgh Penguins third jersey is finally here. Many speculated it would turn out to be the gold jersey from the 1992 season; in actuality it will be the black jersey from that same era. Now Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin will sport the same uniforms Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr made famous during their 1992 Stanley cup run. The Penguins will wear their throwback third jerseys 12 times this season, starting October 22nd against the Philadelphia Flyers.
