Dallas Stars Daily Links: Penguins Defeat Sharks To Win Stanley Cup

The Pens are your new Stanley Cup champs. Plus, Trevor Daley was on the ice to celebrate, and all the celebratory GIFs you could ever want.

For the fourth time in franchise history, the Penguins are the Stanley Cup champions. That includes former Stars defenseman Trevor Daley, who despite having a broken ankle, was dressed and on the ice to receive the first handoff from Sidney Crosby.

Here's Crosby on handing the Cup to Daley, whose mother, Trudy, is currently battling cancer.

And here's Daley himself.

Congrats, Dales!

After getting the Cup from Crosby, Daley handed the trophy to Pascal Dupuis.

Here are the final moments of Game 6, which ended in a 3-1 win for the Penguins.

And here's the goal from Kris Letang that gave the Penguins a lead over the Sharks for good.

Crosby also walked away from the game last night with a little extra hardware.

Likewise, 22-year-old goaltender Mike Murray had something extra to be proud of.

Phil Kessel was also pretty pumped. (Plus, we got to see a happy Amanda Kessel!)

Evgeni Malkin made sure to capture the on-ice celebration.
