Tonight, the Detroit Red Wings have their first shot at winning the Stanley Cup since 2002. Will they be able to pull off a 4-1 series victory over the Penguins at Joe Louis Arena? Or will the Penguins send the series back to Pittsburgh for a Game #6?
The only question mark for Detroit regarding their line-up for Game #5 is that of Tomas Holmstrom. He told head coach Mike Babcock earlier today that he would play, but that was the impression we had for Game #4 which he was unable to play in. Thus, it sounds like it will be another game-time decision.
Detroit fans with tickets to the game are excited at the prospect of seeing the Cup win at home. Let's hope they aren't disappointed.
I will be at the Joe for Game #5 and will be unable to check on this thread during the game, but please feel free to leave comments amongst yourselves about the game.
The game begins at 8pm and will be shown on NBC and CBC. Go Wings!
