Stanley Cup Playoffs
The Pittsburgh Penguins are halfway to the ultimate goal of hoisting the Stanley Cup, but before they get to that point, they have to go through the Boston Bruins.
The Red Wings have the Big 3 in Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Jimmy Howard.
Yesterday I wrote a blog about Game 7’s. I love them. I love when my team plays in them. I also pointed out that losing a Game 7 sucks! It hurts! It should.
They don’t script Game 7s in the NHL. But sometimes it seems like they do.
Brent Seabrook sent a wrist shot past goalie Jimmy Howard’s glove 3:35 into overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 7 of their second-round playoff series on Wednesday night.
Although Dustin Brown will always remember raising the Stanley Cup above his head last year, he also remembers the pain of a first-round playoff loss to San Jose one year before the Los Angeles Kings became champions.
The Red Wings are in the driver’s seat, now up 3-1 in the best of seven series against the Blackhawks, who now face elimination when they return home to Chicago on Saturday.
Jakub Kindl scored on a power play in the second period, Daniel Cleary had an empty-net goal and Jimmy Howard made 27 saves
Jarome Iginla and James Neal each scored twice and the Pittsburgh Penguins routed the Ottawa Senators 7-3 on Wednesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Jimmy Howard’s cat-quick reflexes in net and easygoing nature out of it are big reasons the Detroit Red Wings are on a roll.
