Crosby, Pens Cap Amazing Year with 2nd Straight Stanley Cup

The Pittsburgh Penguins retained the NHL's Stanley Cup with a 4-2 series win over the Nashville Predators.

His career, which has earned him numerous individual awards, also includes two Olympic gold medals, most notably the 2010 triumph in which he scored the winning goal in overtime. After a failed throw Shultze the puck bounced off the Board came to Hornqvist, and he struck the back of goalkeeper Rinne.

"I think (Evgeni Malkin) comes to mind right away", said Crosby. Officials huddled, but the goal was not allowed. Patric Hornqvist, the last pick of the 2005 draft (by the Predators), scored the game-winner for Pittsburgh with 1:35 left by banking the puck off Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne's left elbow.

About a minute into the second period, Filip Forsberg took a wrist shot that Penguins goalie Matt Murray got a piece of, but ended up sneaking underneath his arm and dribbling towards the goal line. Sullivan is the first American-born coach to win the Cup not once, but twice. Of course, Sid being the best player in the world again and winning the Conn Smythe.

Panama switches diplomatic recognition from Taiwan to China
Panama is the latest country to cut ties with Taiwan. "I'm convinced that this is the correct path for our country", Varela said. Panama's government said on Monday it had broken diplomatic ties with Taiwan as it established formal relations with China.

"He is in total control and it's wonderful to witness", Brisson said in an email.

"It's the toughest trophy in all of sports to win", said Pittsburgh Penguins owner Mario Lemieux. "He was our leader and picked up the team when we needed it". Never mind that his season started nearly nine months earlier with a World Cup of Hockey pre-tournament game. He thus became only the third player in National Hockey League history to win the award in consecutive seasons. Nashville went through St. Louis and then Anaheim to the Final, where only captain Mike Fisher on the roster had ever played before.

A 2-0 victory in Nashville sealed the best-of-seven series as they claimed the trophy for a fifth time in six final appearances.

"We hate the result, but our guys gave a pretty good effort, and it's hard for us right now because our sights were set on winning the championship", said Predators head coach Peter Laviolette.
