It was a little more than a calendar year ago people wondered: Would Sidney Crosby ever add the Conn Smythe to his trophy case? Now he has two.
In leading the Penguins to back-to-back Stanley Cup championships — clinched Sunday with a 2-0 Game 6 win over the Predators — Crosby was named MVP of the playoffs for a second time in as many years, only adding to his already accomplished legacy.
As part of a chippy, penalty-ridden third period, Blues defenseman Joel Edmundson took a run at Subban off a faceoff shortly after Nashville scored to take a 1-0 lead. Edmundson mugged Subban, who had the puck, knocking him to the ice along with his helmet. Subban stayed down for a moment before exiting to the Predators’ locker room.
It looked like Nashville might be headed for a power play as Edmundson was assessed a two-minute minor for roughing, but the referees also hit Subban with an unsportsmanlike conduct minor for embellishment. Subban rejoined the Nashville bench after several moments in the dressing room and returned to play in the third period.
Neither team scored during 4-on-4 play, so the call proved inconsequential to the outcome of the game. Nashville held on for a 2-1 win to go up three games to one in the series.
