Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Patric Hornqvist scores past Nashville Predators goalkeeper Pekka Rinne in the third period in Game Six of the Stanley Cup final at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The visitors won 2-0 on Sunday to clinch back-to-back Stanley Cup crowns in the first successful title defence in nearly 20 years. Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby, named the Most Valuable Player of the series, said the Penguins had set themselves a goal of emulating the 1998 Detroit Red Wings at the start of the season.
