Pittsburgh's Kris Letang gave the Penguins the lead for good with a second-period goal past the Sharks' Martin Jones, who had 44 saves in Game 5. Patric Hornqvist added an empty-net goal in the final minutes to seal the victory. Pittsburgh last won the Cup in 2009. This was the first trip to the finals for the Sharks in their 25-year history.
