Game 7 to Decide Who Raises the Cup

Pittsburgh Penguins forced a Game 7 when they beat the Detroit Red Wings. The series goes back, and ends in Detroit on Friday. At this point, nothing matters. When you get to a Game 7, the best team wins.

...well, except in 2004, because it should have ended in Game 6...the puck went in.

Unfortunately for the Penguins, the deciding game is in Detroit. Two things work against them: Every game has won at home, they will have to beat the Wings at the Joe Louis Arena. The other thing working against the Pens...they will be playing Detroit.

Would be great to see Marian Hossa on the losing end for the second straight year.

"I'll see you in the school yard for all the marbles, baby. Game 7 on Friday at Detroit" - Mike Lang, Pittsburgh Penguins radio play-by-play guy.
