From the NY Times,
FRANK PIETRANGELO, 1991 FIRST ROUND, GAME 6
The Penguins trail the Devils, three games to two, and with Tom Barrasso injured, the Penguins have the backup Pietrangelo in net. Ahead by 2-1 in the first period, Pietrangelo stops a point-blank shot from the Devils’ Brendan Shanahan, but the rebound goes to Peter Stastny, who shoots at a gaping net. Pietrangelo somehow dives across the crease and gloves the puck. The Penguins go on to win the game, the series and the Cup. To this day in Pittsburgh, this play is known as the Save.
