The Stanley Cup Finals are set as the Detroit Red Wings get set to open the Finals at home against the Eastern Conference champion Pittsburgh Penguins. This looks to be one of the most entertaining Finals in recent memory as two of the most talented teams in the NHL go head to head for hockey's ultimate prize.
Player to Watch: Marian Hossa (PIT) - Make no mistake, Hossa has had a tremendous post-season thus far, but this is why Ray Shero went out and got him at the trade deadline. Hossa is going to have to continue to perform and both ends of the rink and finish off some of Sidney Crosby's passes if the Penguins are going to complete their amazing post-season with a victory over the Red Wings. Hossa could be that one extra weapon that gives Pittsburgh the edge in the Finals. And it could mean a huge pay day for Hossa come July 1st.
Prediction: Pens in 6
