The Pittsburgh Penguins finally bring the #StanleyCup home

The Pittsburgh Penguins killed it at the #StanleyCup, racking their fourth victory in the series over the San Jose Sharks. With 62 seconds remaining in Game 6, Patric Hornqvist sealed the Penguins' victory with a score of 3-1.

Captain Sidney Crosby said the first half wasn't easy and momentum was slow to build up during the game.

"It wasn't easy getting here, especially the way things started out... Everyone has a part in this. It feels really good to win your last game of the season."

Crosby also accepted the Conn Smythe trophy as playoff MVP.

The last Penguin victory was in 2009 when Michel Therrien took over to score the final goal.
