Game 15 Pittsburgh Penguins @ Detroit Redwings

Pens @ Reddicks (7:08 Versus/WXDX)
The Pittsburgh Penguins will travel to Homo Town to Battle the defending Stanley cup champion Detroit Redwings for the 1st time since the Finals last Season.

The Redwings beat the New Jersey Devils 3-1 on saturday night, with the worst goalie to ever win a Stanley cup making 24 saves. Maid Marian had 2 goals in the contest, including the game winner, don't worry they were both weak goals that an NHL goalie should save every time, Kirt Maltby had the other goal for the Reddicks.

Detroit is off to an impressive start with a 9-2-2 record, their last loss came at the hands of the San jose Sharks, get used to it Detroit, you will lose to them 4 times in the playoffs.

The Reddicks pretty much kept their championship team together, and added a few big names to the mix.
First Line: Tomas Holmstrom/Pavel Datsyuk/Marian Hossa.
Second Line: Valtteri Filppula/Henrik Zetterberg/Mikael Samuelsson
Third Line: Dan Cleary/Kris Draper/Jiri Hudler
Fourth Line: Kirk Maltby/Tomas Kopecky/Darren McCarty

Defensemen: Nicklas Lidstrom/Brian Rafalski/Niklas Kronwall/Brad Stuart/Andreas Lilja/Derek Meech

The wings are pretty healthy with only resident diver Johan Franzen out with ruptured ovaries and Chris Chelios still rehabbing hip replacement surgery.
Franzen found out that Gary Roberts plays in Tampa so he might play tonight.

(Chelios is Pissed about his recent injury problems)

Visit Redwings corner for some info.

The Pittsburgh Penguin enter tonights game with a 3-game winning streak and sporting an 8-4-2 record. This is their best start in a while. The Pens Put up this good start with Crosby and Malkin not putting pucks in the net, and blowing a few games late in the 3rd period.

The Pens are talking this game down as if it is just another game, and at the end of the day, thats all it is. With that being said, i would still like to see Maid Marian get choke slammed a few times.

Nic Lidstrom can rest easy knowing that Gonch will not be playing tonight. Lidstrom won't have to worry about people finally realizing that Gonchar derserves the Norris more than he does.
