REPUBLICANS HOPE TO CLEAR AIR ON TRUMP, COMEY TAPES

Republicans on Sunday urged President Trump to clear the air on whether he has tapes of private conversations with former FBI Director James Comey and provide them to Congress if he does. "I don't understand why the president just doesn't clear this matter up once and for all," said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, a member of the Senate Intelligence committee. She added that she would support a subpoena for the tapes if needed. Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., who is also on the committee, agreed the panel needed to hear any tapes that exist. "We've obviously pressed the White House," he said.

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS WIN SECOND CONSECUTIVE STANLEY CUP

The Pittsburgh Penguins accomplished a Stanley Cup feat that has not been done since the late 1990s – win back-to-back championships. The Penguins defeated the Nashville Predators in Game 6 on Sunday, 2-0, thanks to a Patric Hornqvist goal with 1:35 in the third period. Carl Hagelin added the empty-net goal to put the game, and the title, out of reach for the Predators. Pittsburgh won its fifth title -- all of which have been clinched on the road -- to tie the Wayne Gretzky-Mark Messier-era Edmonton Oilers for sixth on the all-time list. The Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and `98 were the last champion to defend their title, but the Penguins are the first to do it in the salary cap era. Sidney Crosby was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy, the postseason MVP award.
