Sticking to my prediction from 4 months ago: Red Wings to win the Cup in 6 (although I had them beating the Devils in my prediction).

Red Wings in 6. Detroit's age and experience in these situations will triumph over Pittsburgh's youth. However, the Pens are sure to win a Cup in the future...just not this year.

Anything's possible. Pittsburgh's youth wouldn't surprise me. I still think the Wings will win, but it wouldn't surprise me if the Pens won. Keith Jones predicted the Sharks to win the Cup, and we know what happened to them.

Where did all these Penguin fans come from :)
It is going to be a great series and yes it will be youth against those really, really, old 35 year old guys. The Wings will do it in 6

Laff, that's what I was thinking Rob. I think it's more anti-wings than pens fans.

Wings in 5 to win it at home, but 6 is more realistic to me. Experience is key in these typs of series. Pens are good though, this SHOULD be a fantastic series to watch for hockey fans. Skill on both sides is tremendous, goaltending is top notch. I expect lots of exciting odd-man rushes and individual performances so numerous, they'll need 2 highlight reels!

Only 1 matchup I personally would have liked more would have been Det/Mtl just due to the history, but I don't think the series would have the potential to be as exciting as this one. I expect to much more of the penguins in the the cup finals in the next few years if they can keep the team together.

Det exposes yet another "shutdown" goalie in the playoffs. Let's see.... Theodore came in hot, Turco came in hot, Fleury came in hot. Fleury showed a bit of his nerves when he fell coming on to the ice to start the game, but he looked good early on.

Great game for Wings fans, but I don't expect each game to be like that, I expect more of the 1st period kind of games. Although Pens are gonna have to get a few more shots on goal.
