Sydney Crosby continues to have his name written into the NHL history books as one of the greatest to ever play the game. Crosby won the Con Symthe Award for most valuable player in the playoffs and also hoisted his second Stanley Cup trophy as the Pittsburg Penguins defeated the San Jose Sharks by a score of 3-1 in Game 6 of the best of 7 final series.
Crosby’s Conn Symthe win ads another major trophy to his list of two Stanley Cups, two Olympic Gold Medals, two scoring titles and two Hart Trophies.
The Penguins as a team have now hoisted the Stanley Cup on four different occasions in team history, the latest coming in the 2008-09 season. NHL players will tell you there is nothing more gratifying than taking that skate around the ice after the final game of the season holding and pumping the Stanley Cup over your head in the final victory. It has become one of the great traditions of the sport that has become ingrained with hockey fans over the years. That, and the crowd booing Commissioner Gary Bettman during his Stanley Cup presentation.
