NASHVILLE, TN – Former Sabre Sidney Crosby finished his 11th season in the NHL hoisting both the Stanley Cup and Conn Smythe Trophy after a decisive Game 6 victory against the San Jose Sharks. On June 11, at the end of his 12th season, things looked almost identical.
Scoring both goals with less than two minutes on the clock, the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Nashville Predators 2-0 in Game 6, becoming the first team to win a second straight Stanley Cup since 1998.
Captain Crosby also received the Conn Smythe Trophy, which is awarded to the most valuable player in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Crosby is just the third player to win the award back-to-back.
Crosby attended Shattuck-St. Mary’s during the 2002-03 school year and was part of the 2003 National Championship team.
