Kunitz's double-OT goal sends Penguins back to Stanley Cup

PITTSBURGH (AP) Chris Kunitz spent a portion of the spring nursing a lower-body injury and wondering if his time with the Pittsburgh Penguins was over. The veteran forward's contract is up this summer and he's been around long enough to know how these things go, particularly when you're 37.

"It's not fun thinking about the future," Kunitz said.

He found a pretty compelling way to put it off for at least four more games and push his team to the brink of history in the process.
