Bryan Rust's two goals send Penguins to Stanley Cup Final

Bryan Rust had five professional goals entering the Stanley Cup Playoffs. After Game 7 on Thursday, he had five more in these playoffs alone, and a ticket to the Stanley Cup Final to boot.

Report: Canadiens 'aggressively pursuing' Jonathan Drouin trade

The Montreal Canadiens are in a downward spiral.
