The Pittsburgh Penguins close out another Cup title

The Pittsburgh Penguins close out another Cup title”

"This year, many, many different line combinations".

After Fleury had his opportunity to carry the trophy, he handed it off to Murray.

"I talked at the start of the season about keeping two goalies".

"Even if I could get moving, any little twist could take me out, and you don't want to leave the team like that", he said.

Pittsburgh Penguins' Patric Hornqvist (72), of Sweden, celebrates as he leaves the ice after defeating the Nashville Predators 2-0 in Game 6 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Final, Monday, June 12, 2017, in Nashville, Tenn.

Crosby to McGuire: "We knew it was going to be tough all year, but we just tried to keep with it". We kept the same group together.

Crosby, Lemieux and Gretzky are among the six to win the Conn Smythe multiple times - joined by Parent, Orr, and Patrick Roy. They came in here and won this game. "I know this league and I know the game and I'm ready for this challenge". "It was a gutsy, determined group of guys".

"Our goal is to win every year", Crosby told reporters after the game.

The team played the entire playoffs without top defenseman Kris Letang, and also dealt with several other key injuries throughout the season. "Yeah, especially with the pressure on us and with how many guys we had playing hurt".

Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan said Crosby deserved mention among the all-time greats and was "arguably" the finest player in his generation, but that debate has always been over. Tallon said Boughner blew away the team with his interview late last month.

Rutherford can breathe, but he won't rest. That means the focus is on the New York Islanders with captain John Tavares, the Montreal Canadiens with Carey Price and the Oilers with McDavid. It sounds impossible. But people said the same thing about them repeating. Considering their value to the team both Crosby ($8.7 million) and Malkin ($9.5 million) are bargains. Certainly, that is the way it looked in the playoffs.

If Malkin and Crosby can stay healthy, Pittsburgh will certainly be right there. Sidney Crosby is generally acknowledged as the world's best player, and for the second consecutive year was voted the Conn Smythe Trophy victor as the playoffs' top player. Usually this amounts to shot-gunning one more beer than you should and chanting loudly in the streets, and I'm sure this was the case for many sports fans in Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

Forwards Jake Guentzel, Carter Rowney and Josh Archibald played throughout the postseason, including the Stanley Cup Final against the Nashville Predators.

"Obviously, it's going to be the biggest goal I'm ever going to score", Hornqvist said. "It's hard for us right now because our sights were set on winning the championship like anybody would be when you get to this point and for that, it's disappointing".

It was the kind of performance that gets made into a Disney movie, but don't get used to it.

When you add up all his accomplishments, it makes you wonder: how does Crosby's career stack up to the Great One's? More often than not, a second-place finish has been the start of struggles. He posted 18 goals and 37 points in 80 games during the regular season. He did everything that Sullivan asked and he had 23 points during this year's playoff run.

Pittsburgh opened the playoffs with a 4-1 series victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets before besting the Washington Capitals and Ottawa Senators in seven games to reach the final.

The cap has proven to be more of a speed bump than a road block for the Penguins. But the Penguins are in pretty decent shape. How about the job by Marc-Andre Fleury in these playoffs? After the game, Sissons said the official basically apologized to him.

"To lose that caliber of player, you can't replace him so you wonder [if you can win without him]", Schultz said.
