PENS MAKE CUP FINALS AFTER 2-1 WIN OVER LIGHTNING IN GAME 7

By Mary Cunningham

The Pittsburgh Penguins will play in the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 2009 after defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 in game 7 of the Eastern Conference final last night.

The Stanley Cup Final against the San Jose Sharks begins in Pittsburgh on Monday (8 p.m. ET; NBC).

In a game 7 full of big-name players, including Tampa Bay captain Steven Stamkos in his return to action, Penguins rookie forward Bryan Rust scored twice and rookie goalie Matt Murray (above) made 16 saves.

“The big dream is still yet to be achieved,” Rust said. “I credit my linemates for elevating their game and helping me elevate mine. It just happens that I was the one who put the pucks in the net.”
