Can the Penguins Beat the Red Wings 2 more Times

June 3rd, 2008 | Posted by admin in nhl playoffs

The Penguins won an incredible game last night in triple overtime against the Red Wings.  It was a game the Penguins did not deserve to win.  The Red Wings let up a goal with less than a minute left to allow the game to go into overtime.  The Penguins were completely dominated in the three overtimes, yet pulled it out on a powerplay goal.  The total shots in the game were 58 to 32 in favor of the Red Wings.  From the 3rd period on, the Red Wings outshot the Penguins 38 to 18.  The Red Wings had so many chances to score, only to be stopped time and time again by Marc-Andre Fleury.  Fleury was incredible in net for the Penguins and was the only reason the Penguins won the game.

Now the Penguins will be playing on home ice with the chance to send the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals to a 7th game.  At this point I feel it is safe to say the Penguins aren’t as strong as a team as the Red Wings, but the Penguins have the better goaltender.  Can the Penguins get enough offense to squeak by, or did the Penguins piss of the Red Wings who are now ready to seal the fate of the young Penguins.  Game 6 of the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals is tomorrow night in Pittsburgh, with the Red Wings offered their 2nd chance to win the Stanley Cup.  Stay tuned for the battle.
