And Lord Stanley's Cup Goes To....
SIDNEY CROSBY AND THE PITTSBURGH PENGUINS!!!!!!!!!!! I am so stoked that the Penguins won the Stanley Cup this year! Last night's Game 7 was one of those that you just sat on the edge of your seat the entire time. I'm glad I was able to watch it on TV and that I wasn't there paying hundreds of dollars just for the edge of that seat!
Maxime Talbot scored the 2 goals that led the Penguins to their Cup victory. Detroit Redwings Captain Nic Lindstrom scored the sole goal for the home team. Marc-Andre Fleury was on fire as the goals for the Pengs while Chris Osgood prevented several pucks from entering his net as well.
To top off the night, the Conn Smythe Trophy for MVP went to Evgeni Malkin. He was truly deserving of this honor!
Cool hockey fact: Sidney Crosby is the youngest captain, at age 21, to be the first to hoist the Cup for a NHL team!
Now, there's no more hockey until September....what's a girl to do in the meantime? I hope my Atlanta Thrashers do much better this next season. I'd like to see them in the play-offs for the Stanley Cup!!
