*Surrendered the winning goal with a minute left in Game 3
*Had that fuckin' Game 5, then gave up the tying in the 3rd, the go-ahead with four minutes left, and missed a half-open net with 2 minutes left
*And of course, the OT loss in Game 6

In the context of the two previous seasons, very un-Penguin like.

But again....thank you Penguins for bringing two Cups in a row to Pittsburgh.


Some perspective concerning the Pens over the last decade:

Three Stanley Cup championships (only Chicago has matched)
Only team to win back-to-back titles
Won 97 playoff games, most in the NHL
Played in four Stanley Cup Finals, five Eastern Conference Finals
Clinched 12 straight playoff berths, longest active streak in the NHL and franchise record
Won 561 games since 2006-07, most in the NHL

Impressive! Out of curiosity, how many head coaches during that stretch?

So four HCs in 10 years with three Cups. That in itself is impressive. Just goes to show that hanging on to an underachiever due to past success isn’t always the way to go. More than one way to skin a cat, I guess.
