    Pittsburgh and Nashville clash in Stanley Cup of contrasts

    A stellar attack collides with a spectacular defense as the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins take on the upstart Nashville Predators in a Stanley Cup Finals full of contrasts starting on Monday. Something has got to give when the best-of-seven for the National Hockey League crown gets underway in the Steel City of Pittsburgh and home favorites Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and friends try to work the puck past brilliant Finnish goalkeeper Pekka Rinne. The Penguins could become the first team in 19 years to hoist the huge silver trophy in back-to-back years since the Detroit Red Wings, and claim their third title in a decade.

    Penguins, Predators overcame big injuries to reach Cup Final

    No one is totally healthy this late in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, certainly not the last two teams standing. The Pittsburgh Penguins knew they'd be without top defenseman Kris Letang for the entire playoffs because of neck surgery and winger Chris Kunitz for the start, and they lost starting goaltender Matt Murray in warmups before Game 1 in the first round. Along the way they dealt with injuries to defensemen Justin Schultz, Trevor Daley and Chad Ruhwedel, wingers Bryan Rust, Patric Hornqvist and Carl Hagelin and even played - and won - a game without captain Sidney Crosby.
