Good morning! Still a little groggy from staying up to watch the festvities last night (WHAT! I have kids and do well enough to stay up past 10!) The Pens won the right to hoist the Cup with a 2-1 Game 7 victory over the Detroit Red Wings. Your Game 7 hero is…Maxime Talbot?!!
Talbot scored both goals last night. Jonathan Ericsson had the lone goal for the Wings. Malkin, who netted an assist, is your Conn Smythe winner. Crosby? Held off the score sheet and held to just ten minutes of time on the ice due to a knee injury after taking a hard hit along the boards from Johan Franzen. Yikes! Fortunately, his team had no problem doing the heavy lifting in his absence.
Here’s the happiest family from Nova Scotia this morning.
This is a bit heartbreaking.
Congratulations, Pens fans!
