The worst possible thing to happen in a Stanley Cup finals is to see a sweep. It’s not good for hockey. It’s the last thing the league wants to happen. That’s why it’s great that Pittsburgh beat Detroit in game three to make the series a much more interesting two games to one for Motor City.
The real disappointment though, is not seeing Wings star Pavel Datsyuk play yet. Whatever his injury is, I hope it’s minor enough that he can see some game action before this thing is said and done. Datsyuk’s a real star, great with the puck, great hands. I’m sure he’s chomping at the bit. He’d also look good in a Habs uniform.
