Stanley Cup Champs: Sidney Crosby wins Con Smythe Trophy

Share

Crosby also won his second consecutive Conn Smythe Trophy as Stanley Cup MVP to go along with his third championship. "We found out just how tough it is, but it's a great feeling". The win cements his legacy as a three-time Stanley Cup champion and leader of the first repeat champs since the 1997-98 Red Wings.

For Bonino, seeing the Penguins win the Stanley Cup in his absence was extremely satisfying, largely because of how the team pulled off a Game 6 victory. Nashville's Colton Sissons poked the puck into the net, but just as the crowd started cheering the referee was waving the goal off.

You could say it's been a good year for Swedish hockey. Nashville's offence was hampered by Johansen's absence and Pittsburgh had more consistent goaltending; that was enough to win a close series.

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.

The 24-year-old is the fourth back-to-back victor at St. Jude and the first since David Toms did it in 2003 and '04.

"I just wanted to get it done, to be honest", Murray said. This year, the honour went to Ron Hainsey.

It was hard for Nashville to generate enough offence to keep up in the Final.

P.K. Subban echoed that sentiment. "A lot of emotions, a lot of tears and there should be". The back-to-back Cup titles and playoff MVPs further pad one of the more astounding résumés in modern sports history. Burling said he thought he could lay through the final gate and then gybe to the finish, but he misjudged it and had to make an extra maneuver, slowing the boat.

Things became even more jumbled once the final round began.

Crosby has already won the Rocket Richard Trophy this season and is a Hart Memorial Trophy finalist.

Thousands of country music and hockey fans have packed into downtown Nashville as two of the city's biggest events converged - the CMA Music Festival and the Stanley Cup Final.

Both teams came out in a fast and furious mode.

Game 6 was the first of the series to be won by the road team. The Penguins have won three championships in the last nine years, and while that isn't as impressive as Chicago's three in six years, the Blackhawks never won back-to-back.

Goalie Matt Murray made the initial stop by attempting to squeeze the puck under his left arm on Filip Forsberg's snap shot from the left circle. The series between the Nashville Predators and Pittsburgh Penguins was tense and full of animosity. When Murray was injured before game 1 against the Columbus Blue Jackets, Marc-Andre Fleury stepped up.

Previously unknown players also made names for themselves.
