James Harrison's 2007 week 9 performance against the Baltimore Ravens is one of the best in Pittsburgh sports history. Harrison recorded 3.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 10 tackles, a fumble recovery, and an interception. For whatever reason, that video is circulating around Twitter right now.
It got me to thinking...What other individual moments/playoff runs can stand up to that?
Well, how about five goals five different ways in 1988?
Lemieux's most impressive stretch may have been in the 1992-1993 season. When he returned from cancer treatments he was 12 points behind Pat LaFontaine in the scoring race. Mario put up 22 goals and 46 points in the next 15 games. He won the scoring title.
LaMarr Woodley put up 6 sacks (2 in each game) in the 2008 Steelers Super Bowl run, including the strip sack of Kurt Warner to win the game.
Who can forget Evgeni Malkin's 2009 ECF performance? 1 goal in game one, 3 goals in game 2, and 2 goals in game 3.
Of course Roberto Clemente had an amazing 1971 World Series where he had a .415 BA, 1.210 OPS, 12 hits in 7 games, and 2 home runs.
In a 1972 game against the Oilers, Mean Joe Greene had 5 sacks, a blocked field goal, 1 FF, and 1 fumble recovery.
What are some of the other dominant games/stretches in Pittsburgh sports history?
