    The better team won. Nobody can say differently. Gotta get Carlsson in FA. Letang needs to go.

    what a run. 306 games since our last playoff elimination if my math is right. That Pens line-up

    Kunitz-Crosby-Hornqvist
    Perron-Malkin-Comeau
    Lapierre-Sutter-Downie
    Winnik-Spaling-Wilson

    Scuderi-Martin
    Cole-Lovejoy
    Dumoulin-Chorney

    Fleury

    Only 4 of those guys are still here. That's nuts.

    What a ride.

    Go get some rest pens. Get healthy and give it another go next year. 3 in 4 won't be so bad :nod:

    3 in 4 is a dynasty. 2 in a row is hard, 3 is almost impossible.

    Even if we lose early for the next 3-4 years, I still ain't mad.

    **** the Pens could go the rest of my life without winning and I could live with it. 3 Cups (5 really but I was a bit young to enjoy the first two) is more than most fans could dream of.

    They will get an extra month of rest which should help next year as they go after three Cups in four years. Disappointing with the way it ended but they just ran out of gas.

    It is absolutely hilarious reading how salty other teams fans are. Obviously I'm disappointed but I have to just laugh at some of the crazy things being posted. Back to back cups, I ain't even mad

    Sid deserves a ton of credit in the playoffs this year.

    He won the Conn Smythe the last 2 years and i thought he was way better this year then the past 2 years.

    Back to back Cups. A little disappointed it's over, but not even mad. It's been a helluva run. Here's to you, Pens!

    Favorite memories of the past three years?

    Mine:

    1) Bonino it goal game 6 vs Caps
    2) Kunitz game 7 OT goal
    3) Crosby's pep talk before the OT face off vs the Sharks, right before Sheary scored.
    4) Top shelf over Vasi in OT
    5) MAF game 7 in DC

    Not in order, but adding a couple to yours.

    Horny's goal to win it last year.
    Letang's goal to win it vs the Sharks.
    Guentzel's goal vs Rinne after like 30 minutes with no shots. Which was actually the 2nd of back to back shots going in, just with an insane gap between shots.
    Ron Hainsey coast to coast.

    Yeah, I'm with everyone who's not even really bothered. There was lots of talent on this team, but somehow it never felt like it all came together. And a few role-players who were contributing in the cup runs just weren't doing much. Sheary and Rust, in particular, didn't produce like they had in 16 and 17.

    I'm hopeful we can make the right moves to go deeper next season -- I guess we'll see.

    Gotta agree with your #1, for some reason that Bonino goal was the moment I started to feel like it was a really special, maybe unstoppable team.

    -Horny's OT goal earlier in that series, it was the first playoff OT game we had won in forever and another sign things were changing.

    -All of Game 7s againt Tampa and Ottawa, just very tight, very tense games where we were clearly slightly better but almost not enough

    -Fleury passing the Cup to Murray

    -Killing a 5-on-3 late in Game 6 vs. the Predators when it was still 0-0

    Forgot about the 5 on 3. Hopefully JR goes to work this summer more than ever. But they did their best. Washington was better. And frankly....I don't think they would've survived Tampa.

    For some perspective, the Penguins won 9 consecutive series. A team winning 10 straight has only happened 3 times in NHL history.

    I'm still damn proud of this team and thankful to all the players both prominent and obscure for helping this team win back to back cups. The second time in our history we've done so. Thanks to the coaches the management and of course the owners. They put a quality product on the ice and put winning as their top priority. Thanks Sid, Geno and Mario!
