Penguins One Win from Cup
The Pittsburgh Penguins are one win away from claiming their first Stanley Cup since 2009.
Phil Kessel (Minnesota) assisted on Pittsburgh's first two goals on Monday night, and Carl Hagelin (Michigan) set up an insurance tally with just over two minutes remaining in regulation as the Penguins recorded a 3-1 victory over the host San Jose Sharks in Game Four at the SAP Center in California. Pittsburgh now leads the best-of-seven Stanley Cup Final, three games to one, after dropping Game Three, 3-2, in overtime in San Jose on Saturday night.
The Penguins can clinch their fourth NHL title overall, and fourth since 1991, with a victory in Game Five at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh on Thursday night (8 p.m. ET, NBC).
