SAN JOSE, California (NEWS CENTER) -- With a 3-1 win over the San Jose Sharks, Biddeford native Brian Dumoulin became the first Maine-born NHL player to hoist the Stanley Cup.
With Sharks forward Dainius Zubrus in the penalty box for tripping, Dumoulin went to work scoring a power-play goal at 8:16 of the first period.
The Penguins held a 2-1 lead late into the third after Kris Letang found the answer to a Logan Couture goal in the second.
Pittsburgh's fourth championship in franchise history comes on the seventh anniversary of their last championship.
Dumoulin scored his first playoff goal of the season in the Conference Finals, as the Penguins fell to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 5.
From his back-to-back state championships as a Biddeford Tiger to two titles while skating for Boston College, every team that defenseman Brian Dumoulin has been a part of has found success thanks to his help.
Through it all, his family says, he remains humble, even now with his name soon-to-be etched in the side of the most coveted trophy in sports.
