2009 Stanley Cup Champions: Pittsburgh Penguins
Max Talbot scored two second-period goals, and the Pittsburgh Penguins overcame the loss of captain Sidney Crosby and a whole lot of history to beat the defending champion Detroit Red Wings 2-1 on Friday night in Game 7 and win the Stanley Cup for the third time.
The home team is generally favored in Game 7s. The last time a road team won a Game 7 for any major championship was the Pittsburgh Pirates over Baltimore in 1979.
My wrap-up of the series to come later, but for now: WOO HOO!!!!!!
