The Penguins' Run to the 2017 Stanley CupeBook - 2017
Back-to-back Stanley Cup champions. No NHL team this century could stake that claim. Until the Pittsburgh Penguins topped the Nashville Predators in the 2017 Final to bring Lord Stanley home for the second consecutive season. In their 50th NHL season, the Penguins overcame adversity en route to the franchise's fifth Stanley Cup. Key players, including Kris Letang and goalie Matt Murray, missed time due to injuries and the team played a compressed schedule.

In the eastern conference playoffs, the Penguins prevailed over the Columbus Blue Jackets and Presidents' Trophy-winning Washington Capitals before topping Ottawa in a thrilling seven-game series reach the Stanley Cup Final. Filled with stunning full-color photography and expert reporting from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Stanley's Sequel captures the Penguins' exciting journey, from the preseason to their Stadium Series in over the Flyers at Heinz Field to Chris Kunitz's goal in the second overtime of Game 7 against Ottawa and the final seconds against the Predators. This commemorative edition also includes in-depth profiles of Crosby, Malkin, head coach Mike Sullivan, veteran goalie Mark-Andre Fleury and other Penguins stars.
