One and Done on Friday
A best of seven is now a best of one, and unfortunately for the Penguins, the game will be played in Detroit. In a series where the home team has taken every game, it doesn’t bode well for the Pens.
Another thing that doesn’t help Pittsburgh is the timing. If it seems like the series started off with a bang and now seems stretched out, there’s a reason for that: after 4 games in 6 days, the final 3 will be played over 8 days.
As I’ve said from the start, I’ve been rooting for game 7 overtime. There is nothing in sports like Stanley Cup Final game 7 overtime. At least, so I think. The only time there’s been a game 7 overtime was when the Red Wings won the Cup against the Canadiens in 1954. Either way, if I get my wish, defibrillators and aspirin should be carted in to Joe Louis Arena.
Gomez trial about to begin
Gomez has pleaded not guilty. Gomez played for the Victoria Salmon Kings. The team has not commented publicly about the incident.
The trial begins June 15th in Victoria.
Ferraro played for Las Vegas Wranglers at the time of the incident, and again this past season. Ferraro missed the rest of the 2007-08 regular season, but played in the playoffs.
