Sharks, Penguins both like to play fast

(AP) -- It will be speed vs. speed in the Stanley Cup final between the San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins.

San Jose got through the Western Conference the same way Pittsburgh got through the East: with plenty of depth and speed to kill. The final will feature the three top playoff scorers in the Sharks' Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns against Penguins stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

"It's going to be fast hockey," Crosby said after the Penguins beat the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the East final Thursday night. "Two teams that want to play the exact same way, that want to get their D involved (and) their power play is really dangerous. ... It's going to be quite the series."
