It all comes down to game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The most important and most exciting game of the year. The Penguins were able to win all of their home games in this series, but they haven’t been able to win in Detroit and thanks to the home ice advantage the Red Wings won during the season, game 7 is back in the Motor City.
Detroit has been amazing at home dominating the 3 games with a combined 11-2 score. I don’t expect game 7 to be any different. Look for Detroit to come out strong with Datsyuk and Zetterberg leading the offense. Datsyuk had an awesome game 5 and 6 and will light it up in game 7. Osgood will be ready and he is a clutch goalie. If he wins this game you have to consider giving him the Conn Smythe.
For Pittsburgh to have a chance Malkin and Crosby need to get going again. The pair have been held pointless in the last two games and if this happens again the Wings will win easily. Fleury had a good game, now look for a bad game. He is just not clutch. Two silver medals for Team Canada at the World Juniors will tell you that.
Look for Detroit to win game 7 by a final score of 4-1 and Osgood to win the Conn Smythe trophy which he deserves.
