With a win over Pittsburgh tonight, the great city of Detroit will celebrate a Cup champion, the Red Wings' 11th.
Not trying to jinx Detroit, not trying to get too far ahead. This Pittsburgh team is too talented and too good to do that. But the Wings are focused, fired up and ready to go.
Party at Sunrise Quarterdeck tonight, with most of the televisions tuned to the Stanley Cup Final (the others will have the Marlins, FSU baseball and I'm requesting the Indians/Rangers).
Despite all the distractions, I'll be watching the hockey game, one I would bet is the final game of the 2007-08 season.
Where does the time go?
-- If Detroit were to win, who do you like as Conn Smythe Trophy winner as playoff MVP? Detroit has some great candidates, from Henrik Zetterberg to Johan Franzen to Chris Osgood.
