University of MA hockey alum and former captain Conor Sheary has won the Stanley Cup Championship with the Pittsburgh Penguins for a second straight season as Pittsburgh posted a series-clinching 2-0 victory in Game 6 over the Nashville Predators and fellow UMass hockey alum Matt Irwin on Sunday night.
With the victory, the Penguins clinched the best-of-seven championship 4-2 to win the franchise's fifth Stanley Cup.
Another Stanley Cup, and another Conn Smythe Trophy for Sidney Crosby.
As for Sidney Crosby, he became the first player to lead the regular-season in goals and win the Stanley Cup in the same season since Wayne Gretzky did it in 1986-87 - the same year Crosby was born.
He's won two Cups in a year and a half. Nashville challenged for goalie interference, but the goal was upheld.
Penguins goaltender Matt Murray made 27 saves for his second straight shutout but caught a huge break early in the second period when the referee lost sight of the puck and mistakenly blew his whistle to stop play moments before Predators forward Colton Sissons poked home a rebound.
