Mayor promises Stanley Cup parade, but plans unclear so far

" 'You have a small window to play and have a career, ' Crosby said".

Sometimes, silence is profoundly louder than words. It looked nearly lonely, its only company four empty beer cans while a computer monitor above cycled through the logos of 30 National Hockey League teams. The Preds had plenty of time to win this game after the disallowed goal. That elevates Murray into the same territory as Montreal great Ken Dryden, who as a rookie led the Habs to a Stanley Cup championship in 1971. They will never be on anybody's ballot, except maybe Crosby. Penguins. You bet your ass.

"We set out to try to go back-to-back", Crosby said.

"They've had a remarkable year", he said as the game concluded. How he saw him - who knows? And Rinne spent the past 40 minutes stewing on the bench as the Penguins finished off a 6-0 rout Thursday night in easily Nashville's worst playoff loss.

"We were the only ones walking downtown the other day without some shirts on, so we had to run in and get some gear", she said.

"He's a competitor and a victor, that's all. I'm glad we still had the same group of guys altogether". It is what he did for six seasons with Nashville.

And as the Pittsburgh Penguins passed the Stanley Cup around in that wondrous celebration that ends every hockey season, most of the seats at the Bridgestone Arena were empty. Now he's won two in a span of 12 months.

"We didn't get to see the game because we were on the cruise ship", he said.

Crosby was the Penguins' second-highest scorer in the playoffs with 27 points and the 29-year-old saved his best performance for Game Five of the Final with the series tied 2-2 and Nashville riding the momentum of consecutive victories.

Beside the measurable production, Crosby also provides plenty of leadership as the team's captain. "I think the biggest thing we've got to take from this is, remember the feeling".

"Our coaching staff has great chemistry, we work really well together". This team was different the way Joel Quenneville's Blackhawks were different, the way any of Scotty Bowman's championship teams were different: They were superbly coached by Mike Sullivan, one of the new masters of his craft.

Penguins fans took to calling their team's goaltending tandem "Murray Fleury", and both Matt Murray and Marc-Andre Fleury contributed significantly to Pittsburgh's 2017 title.

I don't need to tell you this right now, but sports are so, so dumb: All the happiness that is waiting for you at the end of a championship season cannot possibly outweigh all the pain of the failed seasons it takes to get there.

The Penguins capped their 50th season in the NHL's centennial year with the third championship for Crosby and a handful of teammates from the 2009 title team, surpassing the two won by the Penguins teams led by current owner Mario Lemieux in the 1990s.

The Penguins partied deep into the wee hours, scheduling their charter back to Pittsburgh shortly before noon.

Not exactly Conn Smythe worthy. And did they enjoy it. I'm going to show you a couple of videos you're going to hate.
