Anyway, given what I've been reading in our own media, the Pens may as well not even take the ice on Friday night, since everything is apparently so stacked against them. No team has won a Final Game 7 on the road since 1971 (Montreal over Chicago). That Habs team is also the last to win the Cup after losing the first 2 games on the road. The Wings are 11-1 at home this postseason and have won 5 of the 6 meetings against the Pens in the last 2 Finals by a combined score of 21-6. Crosby has just 1 point in those 6 games; Malkin 3. Fleury has a save percentage of .898 in those games. So given that, the Wings should treat the Pens like pylons on their way to their 2nd straight Cup, at least according to them.

As Mike Tomlin would say, I don't subscribe to that hocus-pocus.

What they fail to mention is that though this is the first time the Pens have ever played a Final Game 7, neither have the Wings. In fact, this will be the Wings' first Final Game 7 since 1955. Both teams do have several guys who have played in a Final Game 7 - The Pens' Coach Bylsma (2003 w/ ANA), Sykora (2001 w/ NJ and 2003 w/ ANA) and Fedotenko (2004 w/ TB). The Wings? Babc0ck (2003 w/ ANA as HC) and Rafalski (2001 and 2003 w/ NJ). Every other player on both teams don't have a clue as to what it's like. So experience really doesn't matter in this case. I certainly am not going into this game thinking the Pens have no chance - they absolutely do, and I really believe they are going to win, and shock the world in the process.
I really really like this statement above Xman .......... so, because of my superstitious nature, and others like me on this board, would you be so kind as to change the title below your screen name from Mr. "Wrong" to Mr. "Right" for now? Just in case? I'd like you be right about this and not wrong. LOL!

Nah, I like it too much - I put it there to send a message and I'm not going to change it. It doesn't change my opinion at all, though - we're lifting the Cup tomorrow night. Bank it!

Frickin' awesome! Someone should have that sign every time Bill McCreary does a game

Speaking of the refs, I heard that Paul Devorski and Dennis LaRue will be the refs tomorrow night. Gah, Devorski sucks.

It's an omen.


The last time a team in the NHL, NBA, or Major League Baseball clinched a championship series by winning a Game 7 on the road - the Pirates won the 1979 World Series by beating the Orioles in a seventh game at Baltimore.

If I'm not mistaken, the relevancy is this: That year we were the City of Champions with both the Steelers and Pirates claiming honors together in their respective sports.

The Steelers are already holding their claim to Super Bowl Champions. Now we just need the Pens to take the Pirate's place from 1979.

Yes, it IS an omen!

Sounds better, and better, every time I hear it.

The tears will flow in Detroit come Friday night.

I thought everybody knew.

Ya gotta believe.

I'd say more, but the hockey gods could be listening.
