The Detroit Red Wings were the last team to repeat, winning in 1997 and '98.
Patric Hornqvist scored the game-winner, his fifth goal of the playoffs, when his pass-out from behind the net bounced off the goalie Pekka Rinne's elbow and into the net. Into the breach stepped guys like Marc-Andre Fleury, who threw a Game 7 shutout in Washington, and rookie winger Jake Guentzel, who scored 13 playoff goals, including four in the Stanley Cup Final.
"There's so many guys who could have easily won that, and I think we just had a group of guys that understood big moments and knew how to find ways to win", said Crosby. And yet for six years, they were never close really to Cup contention after winning in 2009.
Oh, well. He'll just have to wait until the first round of next year's postseason to add that entry to his already ridiculous resume.
With the destiny of the Stanley Cup in the balance, a determined Crosby delivered a dominating performance right from the opening shift, when he rang a shot off the post while being pulled down to the ice by a Predators defenseman. And these guys did exactly what I hoped they would do: "They got us the Cup". Sissons also had a goal negated 1:07 into the second period, when referee Keith Pollock blew the play dead with the puck laying in the crease and after it trickled through Murray's left arm.
Even with Peter Laviolette behind the Nashville Predators' bench, the Hurricanes' ties to the Cup were deeper, even beyond Rutherford.
Man who shot congressman was living in van, called a loner
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise , R-La., was critically wounded in the shooting attack, along with a Capitol Police officer. I can't wrap my head around it, OK?" Sanders has advocated what he has called a peaceful political revolution.

2017 iPad Pro review roundup: 'A full-fledged computer'
With a bigger screen, it can conveniently make room for a full-size onscreen keyboard; yet, its weight remains unchanged at 477g. This is a result of a new feature Apple calls ProMotion , which automatically adjusts the refresh rate to up to 120Hz.
Notes: Lemieux won the Conn Smythe in 1992 and 1992, and Bernie Parent was the first to win the MVP trophy in consecutive years in 1974 and 1975.
The disallowed goal will be remembered in Nashville for a long time.
"He came in past year out of school, played three games and we sat him out", Donatelli said Friday.
"We set out to try to go back-to-back", Crosby said. Once he came to the Penguins, Kessel realized he had a chance to play with a championship team. Viewership was up 19 percent vs. the 2016 Stanley Cup Final, which featured the Penguins and the San Jose Sharks. With a roster heavy on players 27 and younger, many of who are under contract for several years, the roster is not likely to undergo significant changes. They've never been in this position before and we know what it takes to get here. There was only one game where both were held off the scoresheet.
Midway through his career, Crosby has a world junior crown, three Stanley Cups, two Conn Smythes, two Olympic gold medals, a world championship and a pair of Hart Trophies. Look, I get it.
