Stanley Cup Playoffs: Pittsburgh and Nashville Gave us a Thriller

"I don't know if it's any more satisfying than the previous one", Sullivan said on the ice after the Penguins' clinching Game 6 victory at the Nashville Predators.

"We were getting chances, just nothing was going in for us", Murray said. "All the years I've been in the business interviewing coaches, firing coaches, meeting coaches, Bob was the most prepared and his performance, his preparation, his passion knocked us out of the park".

The thing was: how do you win with those guys? Nashville went through St. Louis and then Anaheim to the Final, where only captain Mike Fisher on the roster had ever played before.

Mason said that it was a handsome run of games for Crosby, whose mother babysat Mason's children when they were younger. "But we love him for both".

Far be it from me to judge the way another person celebrates a championship season, but I feel compelled to mention here that there are plenty of ways to prepare catfish that make it a much more desirable meal. We hate the result, but our guys gave a pretty good effort. "You've got to get the guys playing the right amount of minutes, you have to have them playing within themselves". In the Game 6 clincher, Crosby had four shots on goal in 17:17. Sissons and Filip Forsberg each hit the post in the third period. Colton Sissons had a goal erased by a whistle 67 seconds into the second period.

"I think they proved what they're capable of".

There were also two less prominent Carolina connections: Jason Karmanos, the Hurricanes owner's son and former Hurricanes assistant general manager, who eventually followed Rutherford to the Penguins' front office after being fired by his father; and trainer Chris Stewart, an assistant trainer with the Hurricanes in 2006 who picked up his fourth Stanley Cup ring in 12 years.

Including Sunday night's loss, the Predators were 9-2 at Bridgestone Arena this postseason.

As for who took it home?

Faith Hill became the latest country music star to sing the national anthem in Music City, joining the likes of Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum.

They should have plenty to cheer for next season, too. He did everything that Sullivan asked and he had 23 points during this year's playoff run. MacLellan acknowledged he would have a more legitimate chance to re-sign 30-goal scorer T.J. Oshie if the cap is at $77 million. That duo, along with linemate Forsberg, are all in their early 20s.

Boughner's only previous experience as a head coach came in the Ontario Hockey League with the Windsor Spitfires, over two stints spanning eight seasons. Just 28, Subban is the elder statesman of that group. Fleury will nearly certainly play elsewhere next season and defenseman Justin Schultz is a restricted free agent but may have played himself into a contract too rich for the Penguins to match. The Predators went 0-for-4 with the man advantage in a game in which their opponent didn't get a single power play.

"Knowing Sid and working with him through his hockey school and organizing the parade I've got to know him as a better person than he is a hockey player", he said".
