Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Penguins, 2009 Stanley Cup Champions

What an incredible game that was, one that lived up to every single bit of hype generated over the past few days. The Detroit Red Wings gave it their best shot in the final six minutes, but Pittsburgh played a smart, intense game for 60 full minutes and deserved this win.

Marc-Andre Fleury had the game of his life, and made the biggest saves of his career in the final four seconds of the game. Awesome game.

Evgeni Malkin wins the Conn Smythe trophy as the playoffs MVP. Sidney Crosby becomes the youngest captain to ever win the Stanley Cup, and I can only imagine what it must have felt like to have to sit on the bench for most of the third period. He wanted to be out there, but couldn't. These playoffs proved that Crosby is the definitive leader of the Penguins.

If you feel like partying with the winners, head on over to Pensburgh and give them an internet chest bump.

Finally, congratulations to Philippe Boucher and Bill Guerin. Great job guys.
