Pittsburgh Penguins Shoot for Back-to-Back Stanley Cups
There’s no time to preen. The NHL’s reigning champions took a thriller into double-overtime Thursday night against the Ottawa Senators, winning 3-2 after forward Chris Kunitz — who’d scored zero goals in his first 13 playoff games this season — scored twice. The dramatic Eastern Conference victory gives the Penguins a chance to defend their Stanley Cup title against the Nashville Predators, who are making their first ever championship appearance. The well-rested Predators will meet the Penguins on Pittsburgh’s home ice for Game 1 Monday night.
