2017 Stanley Cup Final Game 6 Vs Nashville Predators

The Pittsburgh Penguins showed the hockey world why they are back to back Stanley Cup Champions.   After two scoreless periods, they were able to defeated the Nashville Predators 2-0 in game six.    Patric Hornqvist scored with 1:35 left in the third period and Carl Hagelin added an empty net goal with 13 seconds remaining.     This team survived injuries to Kris Letang and Nick Bonino, plus going seven games with Washington and Ottawa just to get to the Stanley Cup Final.   Marc-Andre Fleury started the playoffs but Matt Murray finished up with two shutouts in game five and six.    They will be changes with the expansion draft and free agency coming up.   Could Matt Cullen retire and will Fleury get traded, but they are enjoying being the first team since 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings to repeat as the Stanley Cup Champions.
