Mayor promises Stanley Cup parade, but plans unclear so far

But as insane as the tradition has gotten, Pittsburgh fans took the catfish theme to the darkest timeline on Sunday night after the Penguins late victory in Game 6 brought the Cup back their city for a second straight year. The Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and '98 were the last champion to defend their title. Regardless, the score would still have been 1-0 Nashville and the fluky goal by Patric Hornqvist would have tied the game at 1-1.

"I'm hoping that he's going to save a stick or two from this Cup run", said Bruce Rainnie, executive director of the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame in Halifax, whose collection of memorabilia includes the famous puck-marked clothes dryer that is part of the Crosby legend. "It's kind of amusing when you go through this experience it's not really about you".

Rinne saved 27 of 28 shots but lost for just the second time in 11 postseason home games. Crosby carried this team to a championship, and that's what the great ones all do. Boucher and Burmeister spoke with Phil Pritchard, the "NHL Keeper of the Cup", and interviewed Predators captain Mike Fisher, Penguins defenseman Ron Hainsey, family members of Penguins center Matt Cullen and defenseman Trevor Daley, and country music star Hunter Hayes. "We knew it was going to be hard, but I think that's probably where the most joy comes out of, is just knowing how hard it is now to go back-to-back and knowing that we overcame all those things".

"There's been a lot of guys telling us we can't do it, and now we're standing here", Hornqvist said.

Nashville's Colton Sissons had a goal disallowed 1:07 into the second period when referee Kevin Pollock blew the play dead before Sissons poked the puck into an open net. He finishes with 266 goals and 479 assists in the National Hockey League.

At the age of 22, Guentzel helped surge the top line of the Penguins late in the regular season and throughout the playoffs, leaving many to wonder if he would be given the Conn Smythe Trophy.

He wasn't known as the Next One or Sid the Kid yet, but he did escort the Dartmouth Subways to the final, only to lose 6-2 in the title game to the Tisdale (Sask.) Trojans.

Then a series that hadn't featured even a single one-goal game went scoreless through the first 58 minutes. And that's just the beginning, just think about what they could do next year.




This goof puts a slight stain on the Penguins' championship, a really bad taste in the mouth of dedicated Nashville fans and a black eye on the league.

The Penguins won due to their depth, talent and resiliency, and those same factors will make them strong contenders in 2017-18.

The Predators, who were 9-1 at Bridgestone Arena coming into Sunday's game, needed to set the tone after getting shut out in Game 5.

The disallowed goal will be remembered in Nashville for a long time.

Another player who deserves recognition in the Penguins' repeat as Stanley Cup Champions is goaltender Matt Murray.

The baseball and hockey fan said he has been to Anaheim Ducks games but has never seen Crosby play live.

In the last 10 years, only one team won the Stanley Cup with a penalty kill below average. The world will find out next week if Crosby, a finalist for this year's Hart Memorial Trophy, will also end up being named Most Valuable Player. Murray is the first goalie with two shutouts in one Cup Final since Boston's Tim Thomas and Vancouver's Roberto Luongo had two apiece in 2011. He has won two Stanley Cups in two opportunities, and he is a huge asset for Sullivan. Nashville finished the series going 0 of 8 on the power play over the final two games.
