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.

    Take One: Taysom Hill progressing In our first chance to see Taysom Hill operating as a quarterback, I thought Hill looked good. I see why Sean Payton likes him. He seems to have a good grasp of where to go with the football. When he throws it, he has nice zip and accuracy. His athleticism is obvious too when he moves around. His best pass came on a nine route to Eldridge Massington. He also connected to an open receiver on a post route. Let’s not get too...
