Penguins strike late to repeat as Stanley Cup champs

Penguins strike late to repeat as Stanley Cup champs”

This marks the 11th consecutive year that Emrick, Olczyk and McGuire have combined to call the Stanley Cup Final for NBC Sports Group. Better to have 30ish solvent and competitive clubs than just a handful. Mario (Lemieux, team owner) said he'll go down in history as one of the greatest leaders and Jim Rutherford (team general manager) referred to him as one of the top four players of all time. He won cups with the Red Wings in 1950, 1952, 1954 and 1955.

Filip Forsberg, Viktor Arvidsson and James Neal each scored one goal in the series; Forsberg (nine) and Neal (six) were first and second in Stanley Cup Playoff goals for the Predators, and Arvidsson and Forsberg tied for the Nashville lead in regular-season goals with 31.

Just like in any family, the baby is undoubtedly the centre of attention, and after the Penguins' victory in Game 6, the little ones had a chance to celebrate by getting as close to the Cup as humanly possible.

Pittsburgh: home to Steelers, Pirates and ... A downtown parade is scheduled for Wednesday, a party that's on the verge of becoming a rite of late spring.

The main characters will stay the same with captain Sidney Crosby, center Evgeni Malkin, Letang and winger Phil Kessel. "We paid a high price to get it but the fact of the matter is we have a system where all teams can afford to compete". It's what we all dream about, growing up as kids and winning.

That's not how it's supposed to work nowadays. Then, in 2014, he won both again.

Murray is the first goaltender in National Hockey League history to win the clinching game for the Stanley Cup in each of his first two seasons.

Speaking about Sid The Kid (now a misnomer as he turns 30 on August 7), Crosby has never been more marketable in his storied career. Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was named the Conn Smythe Trophy victor for the second consecutive postseason.

"He raised his game in the big games, which is impressive", he said.

Funny, nobody's asking how much longer the 68-year-old is sticking around anymore. Sullivan is the first American-born coach to win the Cup not once, but twice.

"Last year was pretty special, being my first run", said Murray, a late-season call-up who went 15-6 in the playoffs in replacing an injured Fleury last year. They're not the only ones. And with 33 points in 40 games with the Penguins, he was on pace to finish second behind Auston Matthews in rookie scoring. None of them had a cap hit of more than $675,000. (Ron Hextall of the Flyers won.) "I don't think any of us really thought about it at all". "We're still young, still hungry and of course we want more".

What they don't have is Crosby and Malkin.

There will be turnover.

Rinne meanwhile had 27 saves on 28 shots, losing for just the second time on home ice in the playoffs. Most likely, Arizona might make some last-minute free agent signings and place them in the pool for Vegas to select from.

Rutherford and Sullivan will get to work trying to fit the pieces together again.

Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the playoffs. "I also understand how hard it is".
