Sidney Crosby won the Stanley Cup for the second time Sunday night, and award-winning sports cartoonist Ed Murawinski put his own spin on the accomplishment.

The Crosby cartoon is the fifth Murawinski contribution to NHL.com during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

He began the first round with an illustration featuring a player from each of the 16 playoff teams.

 

For the second round, he highlighted the matchup between Crosby and Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin.

 

In the conference finals, Murawinski featured Crosby, Tampa Bay Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov, St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko and San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns, who had special friend Jo Paw-velski on his shoulder.

 

For the Stanley Cup Final, coaches Peter DeBoer of San Jose and Mike Sullivan of Pittsburgh joined Crosby, defenseman Kris Letang, and goalie Matt Murray of the Penguins along with Burns, forward Joe Thornton, and goalie Martin Jones of the Sharks.

 

Murawinski has received several honors in his 47-year career, including a Pulitzer Prize nomination, three nominations for the National Cartoonists Society Rueben Award for Newspaper Illustration and New York State AP Graphics First Place awards in 2000 and 2003.
