Pittsburgh Wins Stanley Cup

First the Super Bowl, now the Stanley Cup. The Pittsburgh Penguin—a team that, just a few years ago, seemed dead and gone, and a few months ago, seemed a long-shot for the playoffs—took home the NHL’s highest honor last night. The improbable Penguins beat the Detroit Red Wings 2 to 1, both goals scored by Maxime Talbot. The team was the second ever to lose the first two games of the Cup finals away from home and come back to win the series in seven games. The game marked another milestone: Hockey legend Mario Lemieux, now the owner of the Penguins, is the only man ever to win the Stanley Cup as both player and owner.
