The Pittsburgh Penguins won the 2017 Stanley Cup Final in dramatic fashion Sunday night against the Nashville Predators 2-0.

The Penguins scored both of their goals with less than two minutes to go in game six, with the first goal coming from Patric Hornqvist and the second goal from Carl Hagelin.

This is the fifth Stanley Cup for the Penguins and the third for legendary Penguins star Sidney Crosby. The win means the Penguins are now back-to-back champions.

An early goal from the Predators was called off due to an early whistle, despite the fact it was clearly a goal.

There is no doubt that call will be the focus of discussion for a long time.
