One day later, Pittsburgh received 8-1 odds to win next year's Stanley Cup, according to Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas.
The Pittsburgh Penguins won their fifth Stanley Cup on Sunday night, a moment that was shared across all areas of their organization.
The young fan is honestly incredible, and has 100 times the optimism of most adult fans after their favorite team loses in their respective championships. Letang is a question mark after undergoing neck surgery in April, but he'll be back next year to resume dominating as a No. 1 defenseman (also, isn't it insane the Penguins won a Cup without him?).
"There's been a lot of guys telling us we can't do it, and now we're standing here", Hornqvist said.
Put on the team's top line with Crosby, the 22-year-old scored 13 goals over four rounds and added eight assists to tie Dino Ciccarelli for the most playoff points by a rookie in league history.
"I don't know, we've got to rethink that", Sullivan said.
Pittsburgh's part owner now has three Stanley Cups in his executive career to go along with two that he won in his playing days - titles also won in consecutive seasons beginning in 1991. I just wanted to see if there was one chance to do it, we would try. Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was named the Conn Smythe Trophy victor for the second consecutive postseason. He's been the single-most dominant force of an era - the toughest and most competitive ever - winning literally everything (and in most cases multiple times) at the individual and team level for both club and country.

Ralph Northam over a liberal insurgent who sought to portray his candidacy as the tip of the spear of the anti-Trump resistance. Trump's shadow hung over both primaries, with Democratic voters in Alexandria saying they were physically repulsed by Mr.
Sometimes that's how the breaks go, unfortunately.
"I don't want to sound selfish, but I was treating this as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity", said Rinne, who struggled in Pittsburgh.
"Way more stressful", said the center.
If Sullivan is responsible for the way the Penguins play, he deserves credit for their historic run to a second consecutive Cup championship.
Letang, who underwent surgery for a herniated disc in his neck before the playoffs began, will be back for next season. Despite having two of the best players of their generation, the Pens were underachieving. He finished with a Cup Final-high seven points. Instead, a tight back-and-forth game was decided on a last-minute goal by Patric Hornqvist - and a pretty controversial no-goal call in the second period.
Chris Kunitz (US$3.85 million), Nick Bonino ($1.9 million) and Matt Cullen ($1 million) are unrestricted free agents, as are defencemen Trevor Daley ($3.3 million) and Ron Hainsey ($2.83 million).
In the previous campaign finals, they defeated San Jose Sharks, while this year they were battling against Nashville Predators, the team which appeared for the first time in history in the finals. Then came the inevitable Crosby vs. LeBron James comparisons (are you really surprised?).
Murray is coming off a 24-save outing in a 6-0 win in Game 5, and extended his shutout streak to 123 minutes and 23 seconds.
