How nice to see these two rewarded.

This is the one we'll be remembering forever. How many of these old team photos do we see from other teams when we were kids and still remember them? Gotta love it.

Mike Sullivan, having channeled his emotion for the last several weeks and months through the playoffs, making it all about his team, finally exploding with joy. Remarkable.

Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, helping Nathalie Lemieux lift up the Stanley Cup. Feels like some sort of symbolism in regard to what these two have done for the franchise.
The joy. The gear. The sticks and the gloves just strewn about. Amazing.
