Putting the final grades on an injury-filled, offensively-lacking, disappointing hockey season in Pittsburgh wasn't all that difficult. The Penguins passed, but there's clearly a lot of room for improvement.

FORWARDS (C-): Sidney Crosby was easily the team’s most productive and consistent forward, putting up 28 goals and 84 points.

The Blackhawks won their third Stanley Cup in six years with a thrilling 2-0 Game 6 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night, the first time since 1938 that they captured a championship in Chicago.

Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith, the unanimous winner of the Conn Smythe award as the playoffs MVP, put one past Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop in the second, assisted by Patrick Kane.

Brandon Saad scored the go-ahead goal in the third period, and Chicago withstood Tampa Bay's charge in the final minutes to square the Stanley Cup Final at 2-2.

Even though the Penguins have been done playing hockey for more than a month now, the Pittsburgh torch is being carried on proudly through Pine Richland product Brandon Saad.

The Chicago Blackhawks rallied to take Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final 2-1 Wednesday night in Tampa Bay, scoring two goals in less than two minutes in the third period.

Alex Killorn got the early score in the first period for the Lightning, backhanding the puck out of the air from Anton Stralman's wide shot and putting it past the Blackhawks' starting goaltender...

The 2014-15 hockey season began with Casey Bailey pulling his blue and white Penn State sweater over his shoulder pads, leading the Nittany Lions into battle in the Big 10. Bailey’s year ended with him trading one blue and white sweater for another.

The Alaska native was passed over in the NHL Draft despite a successful run in junior hockey with Omaha Lancers.

Was it the injuries, the pop-gun offense or questionable coaching that sent the Penguins to their sixth straight early dismissal from the postseason?

Trick question. All of the above.
