Game Five is exactly five hours away. I've waited until now to talk about it for fear of jinxing it.
This is the sixth time Detroit has been to the Stanley Cup finals in the last fourteen years...four times, they've won it easily. Tonight is the closest thing to a "must-win" they've faced since Game Three in New Jersey in 1995...which they lost en route to being swept by the Devils. Finally, they're being pressured. Now to see how they'll respond.
Make no mistake, The Penguins aren't gonna break them. But if they can bend them just enough, when they drive that Cup up into the Igloo on Tuesday night, it'll be the home team with a chance to hoist it.
