Sidney Crosby's Penguins Are The Best Penguins

16 June 2017

But after the Penguins made history with a no-name blue line that is arguably the least impressive to ever win a Stanley Cup, Pittsburgh has shown anything is possible.

This year's final averaged 4.762 million viewers on NBC and NBCSN, representing a 19 per cent increase from the previous year when the Penguins defeated the Sharks.

The childhood coach of Cole Harbour's favourite son, Sidney Crosby, said he couldn't be happier to see "Sid the Kid" raise the Stanley Cup for the second year in a row. Dean Lombardi appeared poised to win more championships.

Hagelin iced the game with 14 seconds left when, with Rinne out of the goal in favour of an extra attacker, he scored into the empty net.

"We knew it was going to be tough all year, but we just tried to keep with it", said Sidney Crosby, who won his third championship, and second straight Conn Smythe Trophy as Stanley Cup MVP. But his resume now has everything one could possibly want - not just the individual awards, but team success on both the global and National Hockey League levels, including two straight Cup wins in an era in which that's harder than ever.

Either way Pittsburgh has a lot to celebrate about and so does Nashville.

Rutherford did a remarkable job finding players who fit that mold for a long time. Of a possible 56 playoff games the last two years, the Penguins played 49.

They did because they were gritty and resilient, and they took their lead from their captain.

"It's just incredible to see, considering how beat up they were all year, in the playoffs and probably had the toughest draw I've seen in playoffs in a long time and for them to do that - that's pretty fantastic".

And it's the second championship for Sullivan, who has yet to lose a playoff series since taking over after Mike Johnston was sacked.

He added , "I think the best vindication for the President is to let this investigation to go on independently and thoroughly". A person close to Trump's legal team also said earlier Tuesday that there have been no discussions about firing Mueller.

"He really is the best player in the world", said Couture glowingly.

"They're two players of a very select few in the league that single-handedly have an ability to change the outcomes of games", said head coach Mike Sullivan. Though Crosby did not have a point in the Game 6 win, his impact was felt every moment he was on the ice.

He is the third person to achieve the feat and first since Mario Lemieux, the former Penguins great and now team owner, in 1991-92.

"You know, when we went to the Final in 2008 and then won in 2009, then you think that we're going to do this a lot", Fleury said.

The Washington Post has a terrific breakdown of the Pens' goaltending dilemma when it comes to the Vegas Golden Knights: Because Marc-Andre Fleury has a no-movement clause, he must be protected heading into the expansion draft and each team can only shield one netminder. "You dream about winning the first one, and that's a dream come true".
