Who won in the Stanley Cup 2017?

Standing by the side of the net, Patric Hornqvist bounced the puck off Pekka Rinne's back and into the net following a missed point shot by Justin Schultz with 1 minute, 35 seconds remaining in the third period. That provided the winning goal, as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Nashville Predators 2-0 in a controversial Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The win secured Pittsburgh's second straight championship. Thanks to one of the more bizarre Cup-clinching goals in recent league history, Pittsburgh took the series 4-2 and became the first team to win back-to-back titles in the salary-cap era.

Matt Murray earned the shutout with 27 saves, and Rinne made 27 saves for the Predators as the Cup Final went six games for the fifth time in six years. Read more at ESPN.
