Penguins’ Sidney Crosby wins Conn Smythe trophy
Sidney Crosby of the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins won the Conn Smythe Trophy on Sunday, being recognized as the most valuable player in the playoffs.
Crosby, 28, led the Penguins to their second title during his 10-year career, after Pittsburgh took home the cup in 2009.
In six games, he finished the Stanley Cup Playoffs with six goals and 13 assists, including one that helped Kris Letang score the game-winning goal, and one that set up Patric Hornqvist for a game-sealing empty-netter.
Crosby is a two-time Hart Memorial Trophy winner, and two-time Olympic champion.
