The PIttsburgh Penguins won an improbably Game Seven on the road versus the Detroit Red Wings. Beforehand, there has been a 38-year-old road jjnx Game Sevens of the Stanley Cup Finals. Yet, the Pens did it and they did it with their two best scorers, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, hitting the net for a goal in the past three games, as well as overcoming series deficits of 2-0 and 3-2. This was a rematch of last year’s Cup when the Red Wings took it all and added to their championship pedigree. This year, however, was different and Crosby, the wunderkind and iconic torchbearer in the mold of Wayne Gretzky and Pens’ owner Mario Lemieux, has tasted his first title as the youngest captain to ever lead a Pens’ team to a championship. Before that the record was held by Lemieux. The postseason couldn’t have gone more according to fate than last night.
