What you missed last night while you were actually working from home
Penguins beat the Red Wings 4-2 (DET leads series 2-1): Yes, I'm happy Pittsburgh won the game. Not just because I have them picked to win the Cup, but because I want a legitimate series and hopefully a game 7. Another exciting first period, where Matt Cooke was absolute mad man and hit all the Detroit "depth" guys (Abdelkader, Helm). Great first goal from the Penguins. I like how Talbot found the dead space in the zone, in the super high slot. Brett Hull was the man at doing that. I want to do a highlight show, just showing how important it is for the recipient of a pass to find that space. Even though Franzen's goal was kind of fluky, how do you put a puck, that is bouncing, in that spot? Kris Letang has been the Penguins best defensemen the entire series. Its amazing to see how much more space the Penguins had in Detroits zone, versus the first 2 games. I hope Pittsburgh holds home court and it becomes a best of 3 series. Imagine if Crosby actually gets going.
