Penguins' Stanley Cup victory parade will be held Wednesday

Penguins beat Predators to claim Stanley Cup

The Pittsburgh Penguins won their fifth Stanley Cup on Sunday night, a moment that was shared across all areas of their organization.

Speaking with reporters after the decisive Game 6, Bonino revealed he suffered a broken leg while blocking a shot during the first period of the series' second game - then played the final two periods on it.

An empty-net goal by Carl Hagelin caused the normally delirious Bridgestone Arena crowd to fall silent as the final seconds ticked off the clock. The 1998 Red Wings were the last team to win a second consecutive Cup.

The loss ended the upstart Predators' deepest playoff run in their 19-year history and one that became the talk of the town - and the league - with all their country stars, catfish tossing and aggressive play on the ice.

It was Sidney Crosby, Penguins captain and Conn Smythe Award victor as MVP, who became the first man to hoist the Cup on the Smashville ice. "There was no more hard path to win the Cup than what Pittsburgh went through".

Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby was named the playoff MVP.




On the other side of the ice, this cup final has done wonders for hockey in the south. Nashville was questioned if they could support a hockey team, and they proved it in a big way.

Some 10 minutes later, Sissons was in alone only to be stopped by goalie Matt Murray.

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

It turned out the referee was in a bad position to see the puck and blew his whistle when he lost sight of the puck. Crosby had three assists in that 6-0 win.

Despite neither Nashville (No. 29) nor Pittsburgh (No. 23) being a Top 20 TV market, the 2017 Stanley Cup Final on NBC/NBCSN averaged 4.762 million viewers, making it the most-watched final on record without an Original Six team (Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, New York Rangers and Toronto).
