Don't Touch The Trophy Crosby!!!!
The Penguins are going to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 1992. It is the 16th time that a professional sports team from Pittsburgh has made it to a Championship game. Wud up 412!!! The Pens became the Eastern Conference Champions and possessor of the Prince of Whales Trophy by defeating the Flyers 6 nothing. Yes 6-0. The Pens lost game four against the Flyers just like they did against the Rangers, but bounced back on home ice embarrassing Philadelphia. The Pens are undefeated in the play offs at Mellon Arena demolishing their opponents on the soft ice. Most fitting about this win was Pittsburgh's own Ryan Malone scoring two goals leading the team's stomping of Philly. Evgeni Malkin, Jordan Staal, Sydney Crosby, and Pascal Dupuis also scored for the Penguins making this game a basic pro Penguins promotional highlight reel. They should show this game to the winner of Dallas and Detroit just to let them know what they will be getting into at the Stanley Cup Finals. The Pens have an underrated defense, and incredible goalie, arguably the MVP, and Sydney Crosby. They also know have Keven Veilleux, which they signed yesterday. Well what do you know? They will not lose. The Stanley Cup is coming back to Pittsburgh. Thank you Crobsy for not making contact with that Prince of Whales Trophy because the Stanley Cup is what we want. Its been sixteen years and Pittsburgh is gonna be ready for a fight. The City, the fans, and the team are all ready to give Pittsburgh another professional sports team Championship. Its a new day in Pittsburgh with a new Dynasty forming. (Am I getting ahead of myself? Well I wouldn't be a Pittsburgh sports fan if I didn't ). Here are highlights.
