NHL Peachy: MORNING SKATE: STANLEY CUP FINAL EDITION – JUNE 7, 2016 Our Coverage Sponsored by Paul Mayer Attitudes

Paul Mayer's luxuriously, comfortable designs keep women coming back for multiple -- even dozens -- of pairs. Classic, yet contemporary and always comfortable, his shoes are an addiction that we highly recommend. A staple of the Paul Mayer collection is the simple ballet-flat, with true ballerina construction for a perfect fit that comes in a variety of colors and materials. A cult favorite is the cozy, a flat with lavender-scent infused soles adding style and fragrance to collector's closets as Paul's designs emerge in sophisticated design incarnations season after season in the most incredible hues, textures and modern innovations in luxury footwear because we know firsthand how incredibly brilliant he is. Mayer founded the brand in 2004 with partner, Jeff Levy. All shoes in the line are manufactured in Spain’s Valencia region, along the Mediterranean coast by a skilled staff of 12 artisans. They craft each pair of shoes with an old-world attention to detail that includes in-house embroidery, quilting and stitching as well as custom tanned leather. This allows the brand to cater to each retailer’s specific demands in with timely and consistent alacrity, with orders completed in an unheard-of 3 to 5 weeks. When not in New York, Paul can be found traveling to his myriad of stores across the country meeting his loyal clientele or vacationing in his favorite spot, the Royal Hawaiian on Waikiki Beach. 

Paul Mayer is a Mover and Shaker: 

Home Team in Caps
Pittsburgh 3, SAN JOSE 1 – PIT leads 3-1

Evgeni Malkin registered 1-1—2, including what stood as the winning goal, to power the Penguins to a 3-1 series lead and within one victory of the fourth Stanley Cup in franchise history.
* Malkin, who recorded his first points of the series and also snapped a six-game goal drought, scored his 47th career playoff goal (all w/ PIT) to move past Kevin Stevens (46) and into sole possession of fourth place in franchise history:

Most Career Playoff Goals, Penguins History
1. Mario Lemieux: 76
2. Jaromir Jagr: 65
3. Sidney Crosby: 49
4. Evgeni Malkin: 47
5. Kevin Stevens: 46

* Malkin also picked up his 10th career game-winning goal in the postseason, which ranks third in Penguins history behind Jagr (14) and Lemieux (11).

Matt Murray made 23 saves, including 11 in the third period, to improve to 14-5 this postseason (2.09 GAA, .925 SV%, 1 SO).

* Murray moved within one win of equaling the NHL record for victories by a rookie goaltender within a single playoff year, achieved by Patrick Roy (1986), Ron Hextall(1987) and Cam Ward (2006).

* Murray also improved to 5-0 – with a 1.76 goals-against average and .935 save percentage – following a loss this postseason.

The Penguins again scored the opening goal of the game and have not trailed at any point during the series (254:53). In fact, Pittsburgh has not trailed in its last 435:46 of playing time dating to Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final (despite suffering two overtime losses in that span).

Since the Final went to the best-of-seven format in 1939, teams that have taken a 3-1 series lead have gone on to capture the Stanley Cup 31 of 32 times (96.9%). The lone exception: in 1942, when the Maple Leafs became the first team in NHL history to overcome a 3-0 series deficit (vs. DET).

The Sharks outshot the Penguins 24-20, snapping Pittsburgh’s 12-game streak of outshooting its opponents . . . Penguins forward Phil Kessel (0-2—2) recorded his fifth multi-point game of the postseason. He now has 23-19—42 in 44 career playoff contests, including a team-leading 10-11—21 in 22 outings this year . . . Sharks forward Melker Karlsson scored his fourth goal of the postseason (22 GP) . . . Penguins defenseman Ian Cole snapped a 104-game drought (regular season and playoffs) with his first career postseason goal (29 GP) . . . ICYMI: Metallica’s James Hetfield and Kirk Hammettperformed the U.S. national anthem prior to Game 4 . . . Top prospects Pierre-Luc Dubois (No. 1 North American skater), Auston Matthews (No. 1 European skater),Matthew Tkachuk (No. 2 North American skater), Patrik Laine (No. 2 European skater) and Alexander Nylander (No. 3 North American skater) attended Game 4 at SAP Center.
