Penguins early favorites to repeat again as Stanley Cup winners

13 June 2017

The Penguins also needed the second-latest clinching goal in regulation to finish off the Predators, who had played their way to their first Stanley Cup Final after being the last team into the playoffs.

It was a memorable battle between two elite squads, but the best team throughout the playoffs came away with the victory.

In the previous campaign finals, they defeated San Jose Sharks, while this year they were battling against Nashville Predators, the team which appeared for the first time in history in the finals. The Penguins captain had 27 points in 24 postseason games, all the while potentially dealing with the aftereffects of his concussion from the Washington series.

Nashville challenged the call for goalie interference, but the goal was upheld. "When bounces not going your way, sometimes you question, have second thoughts in your head, but that's life". The Predators had four power play chances, and a key 32 second 5-on-3 in the third period, but were held off the board.

"Opportunities like this, they don't come around often, so you want to make the majority", Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby said.

Forget a golden anniversary: The Penguins will cap their 50th season with their names on the most famous silver cup in sports - again.

The first time they reached this glorious achievement was back in 1991, then one year later in 1992, and afterward they were waiting for 17 years to win again.
