Insider Only Stanley Cup Bound

Penguins 3 – Senators 2 (2 OT)

The Pittsburgh Penguins are heading back to the Stanley Cup Final for the second straight season.

An epic Game 7, the hero tonight was Chris Kunitz who ended it at 5:09 of the second overtime, burying a feed from Sidney Crosby at the top of the left circle past Craig Anderson.

In scoring his second goal of the night, it was vintage Crosby-Kunitz connecting that has the Penguins four wins away from becoming the first team in 19 years to win back-to-back Stanley Cups.

Kunitz starred in the win with 2 goals and 1 assist.

Justin Schultz also scored in the Game 7 win, a power play marker in the third period to put the Penguins ahead 2-1 and it was Kunitz again providing the net front presence.

What a performance from Kunitz to rise to the occasion at his age and produce his first three point game of the season.
