As there are no games tonight and all indicators are pointing to a Red Wings and Penguins Stanley Cup Finals perhaps a look back to see what we can look forward to.
Game 1: Red Wings win 4-0.
Game 2: Red Wings win 2-0.
Game 3: Penguins win 3-2.
Game 4: Red Wings win 2-1.
Game 5: Penguins win 4-3 in 3OT.
Game 6: Red Wings win 3-2 and win the Stanley Cup.
Red Wings Celebration
Now I predicted the Red Wings would be facing the Hurricanes in a re-match of the 2002 Stanley Cup Finals but it appears that it will be a re-match of the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals. The parallels to the 80’s Oilers/Islanders back to back series seems very apt and I would be concerned if I was anyone facing the Pens as the fire in Crosby’s eyes is scary.
So will the Red Wings face the Penguins or do the Hawks and Hurricanes still have life?
