NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The Pittsburgh Penguins clinched Stanley Cup championship with a 3-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks in Game 6 Sunday. Kris Letang restored the Penguins' lead with a goal in the second period.

The Penguins' best players were at their best. Unlike Game 5 when the Penguins quickly trailed, Pittsburgh gained the lead on Brian Dumoulin's goal at 8:16 of the first period. The Sharks came out flying in the second period and were finally rewarded for their efforts when Logan Couture scored at 6:27 to tie the score at 1-1. Only 1:19 after the Sharks knotted it, Penguins defenseman Kris Letang completely took over and dominated a push in the offensive zone from start to finish and it resulted in his third goal of the postseason as Pittsburgh regained a 2-1 lead. An empty-netter by Patric Hornqvist in the third sealed the deal.

This was the Pens 4th Stanley Cup Championship.
