Penguins defeat Predators, defend Stanley Cup title

By the time the Penguins reached the final, the team seemed to be exhausted, with the Nashville Predators carrying much of the play for the first four games.

An average of 2.67 million Canadian viewers tuned in to see the Stanley Cup final between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators, Rogers Sportsnet said in a release Monday.

The Stanley Cup trophy is staying in Pittsburgh, thanks to the Penguins' 1-0 victory over the Predators in last night's Game 6 from Nashville.

In order to get a player's name engraved into the Cup, a player must appear in 41 regular season games or appear in one game during the Stanley Cup Final.

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. Jake Guentzel, who was in the minors for most of the year, led the playoffs with 13 goals. Unfortunately, his return was not a joyous one for Nashville fans, who had to watch the former player end their season.

The father saluted his son as a brilliant, adventurous and courageous man who did what he could to endure brutality and terror. While the North Korean authorities say the coma was caused by botulism and sleeping pills, Fred Warmbier does not believe it.

And it's the second championship in 18 months for coach Mike Sullivan, who has yet to lose a playoff series since taking over after Mike Johnston was sacked.

"Tonight you look at an example of the way (Matt Murray) played".

The referee thought Murray had the puck but it had actually trickled just behind him and into the crease where Sissons had what should have been the opening goal. Patric Hornqvist was able to bat a puck out of midair, off of Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne, and into the back of the net.

"It's the toughest trophy in all of sports to win", said Pittsburgh Penguins owner Mario Lemieux.
