Stanley Cup Finals Game 5 Open Thread, plus points leaders


Amazingly, the Stanley Cup will not be in the house tonight - and for that, we (except ang6666 who sold her soul to the Winged Wheel) are grateful.

Keys for a Pittsburgh win?  In no particular order = the Penguins need to continue to exploit Detroit's weaknesses with special teams.  Marc-Andre Fleury needs to continue to play like Chris Osgood played in the first two games.  Marian Hossa needs to be reminded of the bad karma, because I guarantee you the thought has crossed his mind since Game 4 ended.  Pittsburgh needs to win one away from home, because if the home team keeps winning, it's Wings in 7.

Game 6 will, of course, be an elimination game, and the Stanley Cup WILL be in the Mellon Arena on Tuesday.  The team that faces elimination will be decided tonight.  GO PENS.
