The Detroit Red Wings Win The 2008 Stanley Cup, Bitches!!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT! The Detroit Red Wings have *just* defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals to win this year's NHL Championship!!!!

Hockeytown is home to the Stanley Cup -- again. Using a little Motown magic on the road, the Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley Cup for the fourth time in 11 seasons Wednesday night with a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the finals. The celebration came two nights later than expected. The Penguins forced the series back to Pennsylvania by tying Game 5 with 34.3 seconds left in regulation and winning it shortly before 1 a.m. in Detroit on Petr Sykora's power-play goal in triple overtime. Undeterred, the Red Wings hit the road and wrapped up their fourth straight series on the road in these playoffs. Detroit is third in NHL history with 11 Stanley Cup titles, trailing fellow Original Six clubs Montreal and Toronto.

Much congrats go to the Penguins for a hard fought finals but ALL MY LURVE goes to my Detroit Red Wings!!! HOLLLLA!!! [Source]
