It’s a repeat of the previous year’s final with one exception – last year the Detroit Red Wings beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4 games to 2 with the last match played in Pittsburgh. This time around the Penguins have forced a game 7 in the Stanley Cup final series between the two teams.
Forced to watch their cross divisional rivals hoist the Stanley Cup last year, the Pens will want to rectify the error and make a reverse decision of the 2008 finals. They are agonizingly close to victory: will Pittsburgh be able to hoist the cup or will Detroit complete a repeat of last year and retain the trophy? Friday night will bring us the answers.
