They friggin did it! They're finally taking home the cup again. It's been a long 7 year wait since the last one. But Sid and Geno and the boys got the job done in San Jose and my misery as a fan has ended for now. Kinda wish they won in game 5 at home in those Pittsburgh gold alternate jerseys, but I'm not a Pitt native so I don't really give a shit where they win. Couldn't be happier for this team. I know this story has been written a thousand times this year, but what an unreal job by head coach Mike Sullivan and GM Jim Rutherford. The Penguins were horrible through December and Sullivan took over and Rutherford started making moves. Sullivan was able to tap into everyone's talents a little better than Johnston and the Pens became the fastest and the best team in hockey. Crosby was the best player in the league from December to the rest of the regular season. And even though everyone had moments in the playoffs and he wasn't the highest scorer, Crosby paced the offense every series, creating chances with his speed, stick handling, unreal passing, and even his defense. That's why he won the Conn Smythe over teammates Phil Kessel (team's leading scorer in the playoffs) and Matt Murray the starting goaltender who was excellent as well. What a season and what a playoffs. Glad I could enjoy sports for once. Lets gooooooooooo!
