I wonder though..
The Penguins (and thep ress) talked a lot about knowing what to expect now, as they've been there (the finals) before.

But this is a whole different animal. Beating Washington in round 2 isn't playing game seven of the Stanley Cup finals.
The Cup is in the building and you are 60 minutes away of raising it. But if you lose you really do lose.
Totally different vibe imo. We'll see how each team deals with that, because these Wings haven't been in that situation either.

It's so hilarious. Yesterday, after the Wings loss, people were excited about the prospect of winning the Cup in a Game 7 at home. This morning, Wings fans are calling in to sports radio and metaphorically peeing themselves at the grim possibility that Detroit could lose. Ahhhh, fandom.

I can't believe Fluery came through like that. I am still in shock. The city of champions returns thirty years later.

When that shot went off the crossbar with about 2 minutes to play, I was thinking how surreal it would be for the game to end--and then for everyone to have to wait for a video review to find out if the Penguins had won the Cup or not. As it turned out, there wasn't need for a review anyway--people who had a better view of it than my TV gave me were already certain it wasn't a goal--but it certainly would have been a weird scenario.

Quite an exciting finish after that, too.

That was the most incredible last second play I have ever seen, I think. The entire 3rd period was nerve wracking (hell, the entire game was), especially when Detroit made the inevitable goal to start to comeback attempt.

Congrats to Detroit for a great season and series, and congratulations to the STANLEY CUP CHAMPION PITTSBURGH PENGUINS! YES!

Scott Ferrall calling the end of Penguins Game 7 (NSFW)

Never knew Ferrall loved the Pens so much.

The best part of waking up is not Folgers in your cup, but knowing that Chuck Norris didn't kill you in your sleep.

What a load of BS...if a guy believes he has a shot to win a Cup, he should take it. It's not like he bolted for the money (though even if he did, what's wrong with that?) because TO was offering more than were the Wings.
