Stanley Cup Finals Game #4

Detroit Red Wings (1) at Pittsburgh Penguins (2)

Detroit leads series 2-1.

Well it all hinges on this one, doesn't it? If the Pens can pull out another stirring win at home, they'll be squared away with the Wings heading back to Detroit. If they can't... well, let's just say the Detroit victory parade might go off as planned.

Expect the Pens to stick with the same lineup as Game 3 (no Letang, no Laraque).

Also expect the Pens to stick with the increased confidence they showed in Game 3. They weren't afraid to dump and chase, and their defense seemed to have more time to make plays through the neutral zone.

No word yet on whether Holmstrom will play, but the Magic 8 Ball says that "signs point to yes".

If you aren't glued to the TV (or your seat in or around the Igloo) on Saturday night, there's something wrong with you.

Let's Go Pens!
