Congrats to the Pittsburgh Penguins

New, comments

Congrats to the Pittsburgh Penguins and all of their fans. Well fought, well played, well deserved.

The Penguins become the first road team to win a game 7 in a final series in professional sports since the 1971 Montreal Canadiens. Now how is that for a streak?


P.S. Here's hoping Bettman and the NHL learns how to promote non-English speaking players, because no matter what anyone says, this is Evgeni Malkin's team. Malkin led the league in regular season and post-season scoring. Any chance he doesn't get a Hart to go along with that Conn Smythe?


Malkin didn't score a goal in the last three games of the finals, but he led all playoff scorers with 36 points -- the most since the Kings' Wayne Gretzky had 40 in 1993 -- and his pass set up the first of Maxime Talbot's two goals Friday night as the Penguins beat Detroit 2-1 in Game 7.
