Beat Pittsburgh ... Again?

Nestled away in section D of today's edition you'll find a comprehensive Stanley Cup Finals section. You may recall a Final Four special section in late March of similar size and we couldn't let the Red Wings' return to the Finals go unnoticed.
What also shouldn't go unnoticed is the fact Pittsburgh is still the best team of the East, even without Marian Hossa. Granted Carolina took out Boston (No. 1 seed), but the Pens still had to go through Washington. But the same could be said for the Wings, who held on to beat Anaheim (No. 8), which had previously knocked off "Big Fish" San Jose. I look for an even closer series than last season. And I should add this year's run seems far more entertaining than last.
Now that a Red Wings jersey is on the Spirit of Detroit, it's time to get things started.
