Stanley Cup Final: Sidney Crosby repeats as Conn Smythe Trophy winner
Crosby becomes only the third player in NHL history to win postseason MVP honors in back-to-back seasons
The Pittsburgh Penguins became the first team to win a second successive Stanley Cup since 1998 with a 2-0 victory in Game 6 on Sunday in Nashville. And Sidney Crosby became only the third player to win a second successive Conn Smythe Trophy as the MVP of the playoffs.
The Philadelphia Flyers' Bernie Parent (1974-75) and the Pens' Mario Lemieux (1991-92) were the other back-to-back Conn Smythe winners.
Crosby's 27 playoff points ranked second only to teammate Evgeni Malkin.
