God, I love playoff hockey!
My heart rate is just returning to normal after the Detroit Red Wings hoisted their 4th Stanley Cup in 11 seasons last night with a thrilling 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6.
After the heartbreaking triple OT loss at the Joe Monday night in Game 5, the Wings gave every Detroit fans their second heart attack of the week in the final two minutes yesterday. The Penguins cut a two-goal lead to one with just under a minute and a half left then almost tied it up in the closing
In the wake of the devastating tying goal just :35 seconds from clinching the Cup in game 5, I think I would have shat myself had Pittsburgh's last second desperation shot gone in.
But, alas, it was not to be.
Well done, Wings!
P.S. Anybody else think there should have been a penalty called when Pavel Datsyuk was tripped near center ice with under :30 seconds left?
