Pittsburgh won this Cup 4-2 despite a stellar performance from Sharks goaltender Martin Jones, who stopped 24 shots. Logan Couture scored his 10th goal of the playoffs and became the fourth player in the past 20 years to reach 30 points in the postseason. But he didn’t have enough help to stop Pittsburgh, which got a blocked shot from Crosby to set up the empty-net goal from Hornqvist with 1:02 left. San Jose finished with just two shots in the third period.MORE NEWS: Gas Pump Sticker Shock: Bay Area Approaching Nation Leading $4 A Gallon
