Penguins’ Fleury to wear Steelers-themed mask at Soldier Field

Feb 25, 2014, 11:40 PM EDT

The Pittsburgh Penguins will face the Chicago Blackhawks in the next Stadium Series game at Soldier Field in Chicago, so it makes sense that Marc-Andre Fleury is giving a nod to the Steelers with his mask.

His agent Alan Walsh passed along this image of the mask by Stephane Bergeron.

It’s not the first time Fleury acknowledged the Penguins’ NFL cousins, as he went out with a real Steelers helmet to support the team before an eventual Super Bowl loss to the Green Bay Packers back in 2011:

Bergeron also designed Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford’s mask, which sadly doesn’t evoke Mike Ditka or even the intense look in Mike Singeltary’s eyes.

Is it too late to throw in a Jim McMahon bandanna, at least?

    “Bergeron also designed Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford’s mask, which sadly doesn’t evoke Mike Ditka or even the intense look in Mike Singeltary’s eyes.”

    Or, Jim McMahon’s sunglasses.

    Yes, I know he developed eye problems and had to wear the glasses; but, when I think of the Bears, Jim McMahon is one of the first pictures that comes to mind.

    Also, sadly, back in September 2012, McMahon announced that he was suffering from early-stage dementia. I hope that he’s coping.

    Come on–Ditka (coach version) and Singletary? Two of the most overrated Bears in team history.

      Not sure if I’m hoping the thumbers-down are mostly out-of-towners, or mostly meatball Chicago fans who cling desperately to the 85 team.

        Why does it matter? You’ve said how you feel.

        It matters because I’m a special snowflake and everything I do is precious.

    I don’t like the Pens but I have to admit that’s a pretty sharp looking helmet.

    Compared to the Hawks stadium mask. This is pretty boring. Interesting, just not that impressive.
