Pittsburgh Penguins Win!

Pittsburgh Penguins Win!

After a remarkable comeback in the series, the Pittsburgh Penguins have claimed the Stanly Cup trophy as their own. Max Talbot scored twice in the second period, Fleury stopped 22 shots and the Penguins overcame an injury to Sidney Crosby to win their first Stanley Cup since 1991 and '92. The Penguins become just the third team in NHL history to win Game 7 on the road, improving the visitors' all-time record to 12-3. Jonathan Ericsson scored a 3rd period goal for Detroit to try and get them back into the game, but it was all for nothing, as the Penguins kept their lead to go on and win.

To come back late in the season and able to turn it around, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma was very excited for the team and himself. When the Coach came around to the Penguins, they were 10th in the East and their playoff hopes look slim. But in the end, it was all turned around for a Penguin victory.
