Red Wings Win!

It was not easy but the Red Wings are the Stanly Cup Champions for 2008, beating Pittsburgh four games to two.

After games one and two, it looked as if Pittsburgh was done. But they proved their character, coming back and winning games three (at home) and five (in Detroit). Game five will go down as one of the classic finals, with the Pens tying it in the 3rd period with 30 seconds remaining and winning it in the third OT.

The Wings got great play out of all their players; with the occasional boneheaded penalty. Deservedly, Henrik Zetterberg won the Conn Smythe Trophy; Chris Osgood a solid second, preforming remarkable in goal.

Hockeytown is rocking tonight. Way to go Wings!!!
