Penguins Stanley Cup parade details, route announced

He followed that up by leading the National Hockey League with 44 goals, and Crosby was at his best in this Cup Final leading all scorers with seven points - one goal and six assists, including three in a 6-0 win in Game 5 that put the Penguins on the verge of their latest title.

Last night, the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Nashville Predators 2-0 in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals, winning the series 4-2 and capping off a run of back-to-back seasons as the top team in the National Hockey League.

Those two combined for 55 points during this year's Stanley Cup march, as Malkin led the league in postseason scoring (28 points) while Crosby won the Conn Smythe Trophy.

The encouraging part in a copy-cat world: Every team has to believe they have a defence good enough to win a Cup.

Hornqvist scored the game-winning goal with only 95 seconds left when he batted a puck that had bounced off the end boards out of mid air, off the net and off goaltender Pekka Rinne's back and into the goal.

Taking over the starter's role in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final, the experienced rookie goalie went 7-3 with a 1.70 goals-against average and.937 save percentage. No one really even comes close.

On Feb. 23, the day Hainsey was traded to the Penguins by the Carolina Hurricanes, the defenseman had played 891 regular-season games - 300 for the Canes - but had never been on a playoff team.

"It stings", said the Predators' P.K. Subban.

"I don't know, we've got to rethink that", Sullivan said. But just before Sissons poked the puck in, referee Kevin Pollock blew the whistle because he lost sight of the puck.

That's always the goal, and after having gone further into Stanley Cup Playoffs than ever before - captain Mike Fisher was the only Predators player with previous experience in the Final - they now have a much better idea of how hard it is to get there. Nashville's home crowd was not pleased; on NBC's broadcast of the game, the microphone picked up the lone voice of a single fan, speaking for all: "Are you fucking serious?"

It wasn't the first time Nashville got hosed, either.

Matt Murray stopped 27 shots in recording his second consecutive shutout.

"We didn't get to see the game because we were on the cruise ship", he said.

Call it a little thing if you want, but in a year when the Red Wings unbelievable 25-year playoff streak also came to an end, the result has added significance for some diehard hockey fans. "I mean, the 16th seed and we had to claw our way into the playoffs".

"I'm sure down the road, people will look back and put us wherever they want to put us", Cullen said.

Like last season, Fleury watched the Final from the bench, but without him, the Penguins are absolutely not back-to-back champions.

Even Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins are going to be challenged trying to top this. Washington won the President's Trophy for a second straight season and pushed Pittsburgh to seven games in the second round.

It's been a foregone conclusion for quite some time that Fleury would be moving on after this season, perhaps selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft, and it was revealed yesterday he has already agreed to waiving his no-movement clause specifically for Vegas.
