Eric Fehr and Matt Cullen win Stanley Cup

Congrats to Eric Fehr and Matt Cullen on winning the Stanley Cup! The Penguins won their 4th cup in franchise history last night, defeating the San Jose Sharks in 6 games.

Eric Fehr
Eric Fehr scored once in the finals; an insurance goal giving the Penguins a 3-1 lead with minutes to go in game 4. He played in 23 games through the entire playoffs, scoring 3 goals.

Fehr's daughter didn't show the same enthusiasm as her father after his Stanley Cup win, as she cried while she sat in the Stanley Cup.

Matt Cullen
Matt Cullen didn't pickup any points in the finals, but played a key role killing off penalties and taking face-offs. Cullen scored 4 goals in 24 games for the Penguins these playoffs.

Fehr and Cullen played on the 4th line together for a large chunk of the playoffs, and killed off penalties together. Cullen, in particular, played a significant role in the Penguins victory.

James Reimer
James Reimer, backup goalie for the Sharks, got in one game throughout these playoffs in relief of Martin Jones. Despite only the 1 appearance, Reimer enjoyed his time with the Sharks. He is a free agent this summer.

Congrats to these guys on their great seasons. God bless.
