San Jose Sharks vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
Consol Energy Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
 
Pittsburgh Penguins host the San Jose Sharks at Consol Energy Center in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday. The teams have met twice this regular season with each team winning on the road.
 



Oddsmakers currently have Pittsburgh listed as 150-moneyline favorites, with the total at 5½.
 
Although the nickname implies otherwise, superstar Sidney Crosby is no longer a kid as he leads the Pittsburgh Penguins into the Stanley Cup Finals for the third time in his 11-year tenure.
 
While Crosby has a championship on his resume, the San Jose Sharks are in the Cup Finals for the first time beginning with Game 1 of the best-of-7 series Monday in Pittsburgh.
 
Crosby and fellow center Evgeni Malkin form one of the most lethal 1-2 combinations in the world, but the Penguins have relied on a deep and balanced roster to reach the Finals for the first time since winning the Cup in 2008-09.
