Country music star Luke Bryan opened NBC's broadcast of the Stanley Cup Final at 8 p.m. with a special performance from the rooftop of Tootsie's World Famous Orchid Lounge in Nashville.
The home team finally buckled for the first time in this series, and the Penguins emerged as back-to-back Stanley Cup champions after a 2-0 victory.
Both Nashville's Pekka Rinne and the Penguins Murray had been good at times during this series, but never in the same game.
Murray also stopped Sissons on a breakaway midway through the second and also gloved a shot from Viktor Arvidsson later in the period. As the reigning champions, Pittsburgh was also a team that got its opponent's best effort in every game. And there is no shortage of praise flowing in for the MVP of their postseason run, repeat Conn Smythe Trophy victor Sidney Crosby. They won one Cup, but otherwise, the Penguins during that time frequently seemed to disappoint in the postseason.
It ends the deepest playoff run in Predators history. That was really what we did all season, all playoffs.
Crosby also became just the third player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy in consecutive years as the Stanley Cup MVP to go along with his third championship.
Start at the top, where Pittsburgh has the best one-two talent punch in the league in Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.
Polls to open for primary elections across Virginia
Perriello led in four of the latest seven polls taken in the race since May, and Northam took the lead in the remaining three. Wagner, meanwhile, touted his experience as a veteran lawmaker who can fix the state's congested highways.
The series had been a tough one for the Penguins, who are celebrating their 50th anniversary.
"The first two times he chose to have community things, and we'll see what happens if he wants to share it with the community again", Mason said.
This comes after tens of thousands of fans ventured downtown for watch parties throughout the playoffs, capped by a game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final during CMA Fest with more than 50,000 watching in downtown Nashville. Two championships in succession have put Pittsburgh's tally during the Crosby-Malkin era at three - one more than the team earned in the Lemieux-Jagr era. That left the Penguins without their best defenseman, an excellent skater and a linchpin in the team philosophy of swift puck movement. With a true No. 1 defenceman in the line-up, Pittsburgh's one weakness will become a definite strength again.

That means late Detroit Red Wings legend Gordie Howe will no longer have his name on the Stanley Cup. "The first time he had quite the unbelievable event, then past year it was scaled down a bit", Mason said. Mere hours after Sidney Crosby won his third Cup, the hometown museum that touts itself as Home of the Sidney Crosby Exhibit was already coveting new keepsakes.
Crosby has averaged 1.31 points per-game in the regular season for his career, a mark that's bettered only by Wayne Gretzky (1.92), Mario Lemieux (1.88), Mike Bossy (1.50) and Bobby Orr (1.39).
And for people who say, "Oh, well hockey doesn't need to be in the South", this should be example A, B, and C as to why it does deserve to be in the South.
While they have made the playoffs every year since, the initial years after 2009 ended in postseason disappointment. He said, after the game, that it was "most likely" his final game. "It was a pretty quick whistle ", Sissons said.
Draymond Green loved watching Durant do his thing easily down the middle in his first Finals game for Golden State. He added 10 assists and two blocks in keeping his Cavs within three points at halftime, 67-64.
After Thursday's vote, May's Conservative Party still has the largest number of lawmakers, but lacks a parliamentary majority. To the surprise of almost everyone, nearly 52% of the voters favored leaving the EU. "I can still be prime minister".
She said talks with Britain on its withdrawal from what will now be the 27-member European Union would start "in the coming days". That calculation backfired spectacularly on Thursday as voters stripped the Conservatives of their parliamentary majority.
