With the odds heavily stacked against them, my Penguins have recaptured Lord Stanley’s cup. It was an amazing series, and now the youngest captain to ever hoist the cup is the brilliant and polarizing Sidney Crosby. As great as both he and his partner in crime Malkin are, the upset tonight came about primarily because of the play of their goaltender, Marc-Andre Fleury (pictured above). His last second save was a thing of beuaty. I know this Detroit loss hurts some theobloggers, but hopefully they can take solace in the fact that hands down Detroit is still the class of the NHL and that this is likely to be my only playful jab at them.
Between tonight and the recent success of the University of Kansas’ athletics, I am quite the spoiled sports fan right now, and I love it. The best part is, the Pens are pretty young so hopefully this is the start of a special run. Go Pens!
