The 2016 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs are in the books as the Pittsburgh Penguins are taking home the best championship trophy in all of sports, the Stanley Cup. Penguins Center Sidney Crosby won the Conn Smythe Trophy as postseason MVP after collecting six goals, 13 assists and 19 points over the course of the postseason, including two assists last night in the series clinching 3-1 win. The San Jose Sharks were a nice story out of the Western Conference as they finally broke through to the Stanley Cup Finals after years of disappointment, but they faced a Pittsburgh Penguins squad that got hot at right time towards the end of the season and through the playoffs.

To recap The Kitchen picks, Paul took the crown with 14 total points as he went big on the bonus points in the early rounds. He correctly selected five series in the exact amount of games played. For the Stanley Cup Playoffs Finals I was the only one to select the Pittsburgh Penguins and earned my only bonus point as I selected the series to go six games.
