Siblings Peter and Gabby Marzano—now regulars on the morning news show—chime in on the Chicago Blackhawks' record points streak.
Lemont's very own Chicago Blackhawks "Super Fans" appeared on WGN News on Wednesday morning to offer their take on the team's historic season. Lemont High School junior Peter Marzano, 16, and his sister, Gabby, 14, have become WGN regulars over the years after a producer found videos of their Blackhawks commentary on YouTube. Although they typically appear on television during the NHL playoffs, clips of Peter and Gabby's latest video were featured Wednesday morning, just hours after the Blackhawks beat the Minnesota Wild 5-3. The win brought the team's record to 20-0-3, and marked their 23rd straight game without a regulation loss—an NHL record. "You don't see teams like this very often," Peter Marzano said of the 2013 Blackhawks. "In …

YouTube videos featuring 16-year-old Peter Marzano and his sister Gabby will appear on WGN Morning News throughout the Stanley Cup playoffs.
After the Chicago Blackhawks took a rough 3-2 overtime loss to the Phoenix Coyotes in Game 1 of the Western Conference quarterfinals Thursday, Lemont's resident NHL commentator Peter Marzano took to his YouTube account for a quick recap. Marzano, 16, and his 13-year-old sister Gabby started recording Blackhawks post-game and pre-game shows in their basement during the 2010 playoffs, in which Chicago took home the Stanley Cup. The duo was discovered by a WGN producer shortly after, and have been appearing on the morning news show during the playoffs ever since.

Peter and Gabby Marzano have become regulars on the morning news show thanks to their post-game recaps on YouTube.
Peter Marzano was just 14 when he decided he wanted to try his hand at NHL commentary. The Lemont teen had been an avid sports fan for years, and had religiously followed the Chicago Blackhawks since 2008. He spent almost every night watching ESPN and the NHL Network, listening intently to his favorite sportscasters as they recapped games around the league. By 2010—the year the Blackhawks captured their first Stanley Cup since 1961—Marzano had become a walking encyclopedia on his favorite team. He memorized game stats and specific plays, and could speak intelligently about any player on the roster. Following Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, in which the Blackhawks beat the San Jose Sharks 2-1, Marzano was inspired to offer his own …
