A couple of facts following the Pens' implosion vs. the Wings tonight in Detroit:
14 of the last 19 teams to win Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final have won the Cup.
32 of 33 teams to win games 1 and 2 at home in the Stanley Cup Final have won the Cup.
Last season, Detroit led Pittsburgh 3 games to 2 going into game six in Pittsburgh. Detroit won game six (and the Cup).
The last two of "my" teams to win the Cup--Colorado in 2001 and Tampa in 2004--both came back from 3-2 deficits to win it.
See you Tuesday in Pittsburgh!
