"The hick from Saskatoon" wins the cup after coaching his team to 3 consecutive 50 win seasons.

WARMEST thanks to the Pens for giving us by far our closest SCF since the Production Line era in the 1950s ...

It was a PLEASURE watching Fleury (Roy 2.0 without the attitude), Hossa (ALL CLASS), Staal (classic Wings-type 2 way player who'll become better offensively), Crosby (superb passing), Orpik (body and soul in the shooting lanes)and during the last 2 games, Malikin (too little, too late but beastly nonetheless).

See yawl next year Inshallah, provided Mario finds a way to keep Hossa.

JUST TOO RED AND TOO STRONG THIS YEAR !

Here it is ...

Quote:
PITTSBURGH (AP)-Hockeytown is home to the Stanley Cup - again.

Using a little Motown magic on the road, the Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley Cup for the fourth time in 11 seasons Wednesday night with a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the finals.


The celebration came two nights later than expected. The Penguins forced the series back to Pennsylvania by tying Game 5 with 34.3 seconds left in regulation and winning it shortly before 1 a.m. in Detroit on Petr Sykora's power-play goal in triple overtime.

Undeterred, the Red Wings hit the road and wrapped up their fourth straight series on the road in these playoffs. Detroit is third in NHL history with 11 Stanley Cup titles, trailing fellow Original Six clubs Montreal and Toronto.

Just like in Game 5, things got a little dicey for the Red Wings, who allowed Sergei Gonchar's power-play goal with 1:27 remaining that got the Penguins to 3-2. Pittsburgh had already pulled Game 5 hero Marc-Andre Fleury to create a 6-on-4 skating edge.

With the final seconds ticking down, Penguins captain Sidney Crosby put a backhander on goal that Marian Hossa just missed with a tip at the right post.

It set off a pile-on celebration behind the Detroit goal for the Red Wings, as the disappointed fans in Mellon Arena saluted their club once more with a chant of "Let's Go Pens!"

In the best night for Swedish hockey since the national squad won the gold medal at the 2006 Turin Olympics, defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom became the first European captain of a Stanley Cup champion, and Henrik Zetterberg, who had a goal and assist in the Cup clincher, won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.

His goal 7:36 into the third period pushed the Red Wings' lead to 3-1. He tied teammate and countryman Johan Franzen for the playoff lead with 13 goals, and matched Crosby for the postseason scoring crown with 27 points.

Lidstrom is one of five players to be the Red Wings for their four most recent titles (1997, 1998, 2002, 2008).

Crosby came close in his third NHL season to adding a Stanley Cup title to his resume that already includes a scoring title and a league MVP award.

Brian Rafalski gave Detroit a 1-0 lead in the first period and Valterri Filppula doubled it in the second. Chris Osgood made 20 saves and improved to 14-4 in the playoffs after taking over for No. 1 goalie Dominik Hasek in the first round of the playoffs against Nashville. Osgood allowed only 30 goals in 19 games.

Detroit earned its final two victories of the championship series in Pittsburgh, where the Penguins won their first nine postseason games. Until the Red Wings came to town, the Penguins hadn't lost at home since February.

Fourth Cup in 11 years for Red Wings
John Kreiser | NHL.com Columnist Jun 4, 2008, 11:31 PM EDT

PITTSBURGH -- A few of the pertinent numbers from Detroit's Stanley Cup-clinching 3-2 victory over Pittsburgh Wednesday night:

0 – Shorthanded goals allowed by Detroit in its 22 playoff games. The Wings also led all teams by scoring six shorthanded goals, including one in Game 1 of the Final.

1 – European-born and trained captains of Stanley Cup-winning teams. Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom, a native of Sweden, is the first non-North American to lead his team to a Stanley Cup.

1.55 – Detroit goaltender Chris Osgood's goals-against average in the Playoffs. Osgood surrendered only nine goals in six games in the Final, one of which went into triple overtime.

2 – Two-man advantages for the Penguins killed off by the Red Wings in the Final. The Wings held Pittsburgh scoreless for 1:33 of a 5-on-3 in Game 6 after blanking them for 1:26 in the third period of Game 4.

3 – Hat tricks by the Red Wings in the playoffs – the only ones by any team in the 85 playoff games this year. Johan Franzen had two, both against Colorado in the conference semifinals, and Pavel Datsyuk had one in Game 3 of the Western Finals against Dallas.

4 – Stanley Cups won by the Red Wings in the last 11 years. Since 1997, when they ended a 42-year championship drought, the Wings have won more Cups than any club since the Edmonton Oilers captured five in seven years from 1984-90.

4 – Playoff series this year in which the Red Wings won the clinching game on the road. Detroit closed out all four rounds away from Joe Louis Arena, winning three times in Game 6 and once in Game 4.

5 – Red Wings who've been a member of all four Cup-winning teams since 1997. Lidstrom, Kris Draper, Kirk Maltby, Tomas Holmstrom and Darren McCarty have been on all four title-winning clubs.

6 – Games in the Stanley Cup Final in which the Red Wings out-shot Pittsburgh, including 30-22 in Game 6. The Wings had at least seven more shots on goal in every game,

8 – Red Wings who have won three or more Stanley Cups. In addition to the five players who've been on all four Cup teams, Osgood, Chris Chelios and Brian Rafalski earned their third rings.

9 – Goals allowed by the Red Wings in the Final. That's actually the most they've allowed in the four Finals that led to their Cups. They allowed seven to Carolina in 2002 and Washington in 1998 and only six to Philadelphia in a four-game sweep in 1997.

10 – Consecutive Stanley Cups won by the team that had the home-ice advantage. The last team to win a Cup when opening on the road was the Red Wings against Philadelphia in 1997.

11 – Total Stanley Cups won by the Red Wings, the third-highest total in NHL history behind Montreal (23) and Toronto (13), and the most by a team based in the United States.

13 – Playoff games in which the Red Wings won when scoring first, including three in the Final. Detroit lost only once (Game 3 to Nashville in the opening round) when getting the first goal.

13 – Shutouts in this year's playoffs. Osgood and Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury shared the lead with three; Osgood had two of his in the first two games of the Final.

14 – Wins by Osgood, including all four in the Stanley Cup Final. Osgood set a record for the most wins by a goaltender who didn't start his team's first playoff game. Hasek won Games 1 and 2 against Nashville, lost Game 3 and was yanked after allowing three early goals in Game 4. Osgood replaced him and played every minute the rest of the way.

14 – Wins by the Red Wings when leading after two periods in the playoffs. Detroit won every postseason game in which it led after 40 minutes, including all three in the Final.

15 – Points by Detroit's Niklas Kronwall, the most of any defenseman in the playoffs. All of his points were assists, including a pair in Game 6.

16 – Years since the Cup-winning goal was scored in the third period. Henrik Zetterberg's goal at 7:36 was the first Cup-winner in the third period since Pittsburgh's Ron Francis did it in 1992 – the last time the Penguins made the Final before this year.

18 – Faceoffs taken by Draper in Game 6 – he won 15, including two big draws in the final minute.

20 – Games in this year's postseason in which the Red Wings out-shot their opponents. The Wings were 15-5 in the playoffs when they had more shots, including 4-2 in the Final. They were out-shot once and tied once.

20 – Power-play goals by the Red Wings in the playoffs, including four in the Final. The fourth one, by Brian Rafalski in the first period of Game 6, put Detroit ahead to stay.

27 – Points by Zetterberg and Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby in this year's playoffs, the most of any players. Zetterberg, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner, had 13 goals and 14 assists, including one of each in Game 6. Crosby had six goals and a playoff-high 21 assists; both had six points in the Final.


41 – Times, including this year, that a team has won the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final and gone on to win the Cup. The non-winners: Detroit in 1942 and 1966 and Chicago in 1971.

54 – Times that the team winning the opener of the Stanley Cup Final has gone on to win the Cup. The last Game 1 winner to come up short was the Calgary Flames, who won the opener in 2004 but lost to Tampa Bay in seven games. The Lightning are one of 15 Game 1 losers to rally and win the Cup.

62 – Playoff series won by the Red Wings, including all four this year. That's second to Montreal (86) on the all-time list. Detroit passed Toronto (58) by winning its first-round series against Nashville.

70 – Victories this season by the Red Wings – 54 in the regular season and 16 in the playoffs. They lost 28 regular-season games (21 in regulation and seven in overtime or a shootout) and six in the playoffs.

Post-Game 6 Quotes: Mike Babcock
NHL Public Relations Jun 4, 2008, 11:50 PM EDT

Q. What was harder, the last 30 seconds or the long wait before the game began?

COACH MIKE BABCOCK:
You know, even in the last game, the last minute and stuff like that wasn't long or harder, it was just doing what you do.

The interesting thing is when you're playing in the Stanley Cup Final like this and it's a closeout game, the emotion on your bench is so much more than you've had to deal with. Getting guys on and off the ice is more difficult, and yet we have a real committed group.

Nicklas Lidstrom, in my opinion, is a phenomenal leader and captain. And with his poise and his skill. And then the support group in [Chris] Chelios and [Kris] Draper. And [Pavel] Datsyuk and [Henrik] Zetterberg, for their leadership. You know, we have a very special team, and we're thrilled to be in this situation, obviously.

Q. All season long you were so focused on the process. Now that you got to the end and your name is going to be on that Cup, what are your emotions?

COACH MIKE BABCOCK:
Well, you know, I probably haven't come to grips with that. But to be able to share this journey with the guys and to be able to share it with the city of Detroit, and obviously my family, that's very emotional. And I'm sure I'm going to have some emotional moments in the next week just thinking about it. But to have your name on the Stanley Cup, pretty special.

Q. How important was it to get that first power play goal tonight?

COACH MIKE BABCOCK:
I think always scoring first is very important, if you possibly can. And it's not like they weren't given some opportunities on the power play tonight. We had to do a good job on the penalty kill and we just found a way to win the game.

Q. Can you just talk about the effort that the Penguins gave you throughout this series?

COACH MIKE BABCOCK:
Well, the news since the cap world, everybody's good. We played four tough series. I can't remember who we played last it seemed so long ago, but they're all good. The battle we got from Nashville, from Colorado, and Dallas to play a talented, talented group like this, I was very impressed with [Penguins coach] Michel Therrien's ability to run the bench.

He has a good feel to know who is playing the best, and he makes adjustments accordingly. I thought he made it hard for us as a team. And to me he's done a fantastic job with his team. They just keep getting better and better.

Mario [Lemieux] and his ownership group here got a good thing going here. Obviously the city of Pittsburgh.

Q. Chris Osgood is usually a guy who flies under the radar. He probably had the best two games after losses; can you talk about his ability to play in those games?

COACH MIKE BABCOCK:
I think Ozzie is a fantastic story. You talk about us, but when you pull your goalie in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, that usually means you're going fishing in about three days, and not 14 more wins or whatever we needed to get it done. You gotta give him a lot of credit. He sat in my office at my house three years ago or two years ago, I guess, after the season and talked about reinventing himself and finding a way, and he did.

He learned how to butterfly, and he's improved his game. And he's now back as one of the top goalies in the League because of his mental toughness and his sticktoitiveness. And I think he showed that in bouncing back and winning tonight.

Q. In the past you've come within a game of winning the Cup. So from one coach to another, what would you say to Michel Therrien who is not feeling too good right now?

COACH MIKE BABCOCK:
Well, I can tell him that he's won at the Junior level and Minor Pro level and now he's a winner at this level. He's going to get his opportunity. And coaches don't get here by accident. And you need good players, and he knows what he's doing. He's done a good job. In the time he's been here, he's made a huge difference. You don't get here without being a big believer in yourself, and he's obviously that. He did a heck of a job, and he should be proud of himself and his team.

Q. Can you talk about [Henrik] Zetterberg's performance in winning the Conn Smythe Trophy, the attention on both ends of the ice was something to see.

COACH MIKE BABCOCK:
You know, I mean, someone said to me here earlier, you turned your best offensive players into checkers. I never did that. They're just very good both ways, and deliver offensively. And that's the philosophy I have, anyway. I believe if the people that are playing against the best people can score, they gotta worry about them.

If you've got guys who don't score playing against those people, they can just let it go on offense all the time. Z and Pavel [Datsyuk] are two of the best players in the world. And when you put [Brian] Rafalski and Nick [Lidstrom] on the ice with them, I mean, that's a pretty special group.

And [Penguins forward Sidney] Crosby and [Penguins forward Marian] Hossa gave us all we could handle, and yet it was great to see us, obviously, get this done.

Q. Ken Holland said just a little while ago that you guys had to lose the Anaheim series to get back here. So when something like that happens and you go through a long road, how do you reset yourself for another long, not so guaranteed struggle to get back?

COACH MIKE BABCOCK:
Well, it's difficult, obviously. But if you go through the last three years in the NHL and the amount of games we've won, I mean, we won 58, we won 50, and we won 54.

So do the math there. And then we flamed out. We went 2-4 against the Oilers. And last year we got to the Final Four, won a lot of games. And this year it's been a process. It didn't happen overnight. We've been a good team, and I think elite, elite team for the last three years. And we were finally able to get it done.

Congratulations to Sohel and Red Wings.

They are the better team at this point and deservedly so. I have no complaints for my team. They have made us proud. My only worry is the pressure for next year. Sure, they will be a year older, but its never a sure thing to win it all next year. In Stanley Cups always the better team win ( with a few exceptions ) and we are still a few notches behind the likes of Wings and even Ducks. Still, we were a second away from OT. Luck wasn't with us also like it was throughout the playoffs. Bounces went the other way. Too many posts, cross bars..oh well. With this young group intact we will compete for a cup every year ( East conf beware ) and will eventually win a few in next ten years. I would like to see us become a better puck moving team from our own zone. Fleury brought us here and I won't blame him for the goals last night. It happens. Once again, congrats to Red Wings, to Babcock ( he is not a hick...just a bit of trashtalking from me in response ) , to Lidstrom ( what a phenom ), to Flippula ( what an unsung hero ) and everybody in that team.

It will be a very interesting off season for us. Just when we are on the cusp of greatness, we have a plethora of free agents. Timing couldn't be worse. Shero will do whats best for the team. Pens are on solid ground. Great owners, great fans and a new arena on way next year.

Thanks to everybody in this forum for making it enjoyable. Hockey is a great sport and its good to see it alive among fellow Bangladeshis. Sohel, Noc, Bancan and hockey guru IC- thank you. I am applying for season tkts for next year. Habs, Leafs, Wings fans in the forum are welcome to stay with me and go to game next year. Its not that far. Take a trip. If you are a Flyers fan, don't bother!

Last post here till the new season. Now focus back on Tigers...

This will be my last post in this great thread also.

Championship consistency of the Detroit Red Wings is the triumph of the modern, European-influenced game. A rhythmic puck possession game played by versatile players who balance great 2-way hockey with excellent application of the basics. Players who can readily adapt to the strategic adjustments on the ice, and play different roles as required.

Gone are the days of "dump and chase" or "a centerman does this" and "a does that". Not in Toronto with obvious reasons and results.

Thanks to the Red Wings Nation worldwide, the great city of Detroit, the Ilitch family, spiritual leaders Scotty Bowman, Gordie Howe, Steve Yzerman and our great front office, Mike Babcock and our fabulous team of coaches and scouts, St. Norris with his defensemen and simply superior skill and leadership on and off the ice, Wizard of Oz and the Euro twins Hank and Pav, Draper and his grinders, and the great hockey nations of Sweden and Canada -- life IS a lot sweeter today.

Anyway, to Bancan, Beamer, Noc, Cricman, Mijan, IC and others for the wonderful time here.

We'll be back next year Inshallah, and if we make it to the SCF, no one will stop us from our 12th SCF triumph.

SHOW NO MERCY, LEAVE NO DOUBT, MOTOR CITY MUSCLE BABY !

LORD STANLEY'S CUP COMES BACK HOME TO HOCKEYTOWN, USA !!!




See you next year, Inshallah ...

Congrats to the wings and Sohel NR bhai. Ratings were suprisingly up in US this year and down in Canada. Sweeds are the europpean version of canadian hockey players. Zetteberg did it all this playoffs and truely deserved to win the Conn Smythe. The wings were more prepared to win and then pens and that's why they won. Pens will be good in the future if they can keep their core players. The interview of Crosby after the loss told me how much he cared. Unfortunately, others play didn't match his level. There was lots said about physical injuries of many of the pens players but about his. He played through it without fuss and still was the best player (tied for most points). Staal was just as good. Killed PP, played against the best line of the wings. One of the few in the pens who won faceoffs consistently. I hope to see them both in the Olympics. Really don't want to see the aging Draper in the Vancouver olympics. Maltby maybe. Once more cudos to the wings, I am not a leafs supporter so I would like to remind the leafs fans that the wings are 2 behind in the total cups won with 11. As for my team I hope Price learned a lot from his mistakes and has noted what is necessary to win in the playoffs so next year he can carry us to the promise land. A la prochaine.
