We beat the Blues and all of sudden we believe we can actually win the Stanley Cup. That's a complicated issue and there is no guarantee players raise the cap as much as possible this time around, especially with a new team coming in. Rinne will still finish with the top save percentage in the playoffs with a.928%, but in the finals, he went only.866% and on the road, it was an abysmal.756%.
"I'm just so proud of these guys", Rinne said.
Subban had harassed Crosby, cheap-shot him and talked trash the entire series.
However, the consistent errors, missed calls, non-calls, and inconsistent calls will put a cloud over this series. Referee Kevin Pollock blew the whistle when he lost sight of the puck, which was sitting behind Murray with lots of space in the crease for Sissons to tap it into the net. "I think the other thing is the leadership that he has". The Predators went 0 of 4 with the man advantage, including 32 seconds of a 5-on-3 in the third. A game that looked to be headed to overtime saw former Predator Patric Hornqvist score the tiebreaking goal with 1:35 to play before Carl Hagelin added an empty-netter to clinch the title. They know how to step up with the game. The only thing I was thinking about was that Cup and dreaming about that and playing for that. Into the breach stepped guys like Marc-Andre Fleury, who threw a Game 7 shutout in Washington, and rookie winger Jake Guentzel, who scored 13 playoff goals, including four in the Stanley Cup Final.
Not exactly Conn Smythe worthy. The Penguins defence was made up of players who had never had a vote for the James Norris Memorial Trophy.
Forward Bryan Rust, who had seven goals and two assists during the playoffs, is a Pontiac native who also played for the U.S. National Development Team Program.
The Penguins scored the two crucial goals in the last two minutes of the final period.
The argument can also be made for Murray, who was injured during the warm-ups of Game 1 against Columbus.

According to The Hockey News, the Stanley Cup ran out of room for names in 1992 when it turned 100 years old. And did they enjoy it.

The win made the Penguins the first team in almost two decades to repeat as champions while Crosby became just the third player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy in consecutive years as Stanley Cup MVP.
