There's nothing to be ashamed of.
This is a young Pens team.
We're along for the ride for the many playoff runs to come.
Those words sting you more than seeing Chris Osgood holding the Cup.
But it's true.
Make no mistake though; the Stanley Cup champion is never a fluke.
And this year is no different.
The Red Wings deserved to win the Stanley Cup. They were simply better.
The feeling you had when that clock went all zeros has already started to dissipate.
By next week it will fade some more.
Pretty soon, you'll look up and it will be July.
Kevin Lowe will overpay for someone.
You'll blink your eyes and it will be September.
Training camp will bring season previews.
The first week of October, it will all begin again.
But having to see shots of the Wings holding the Cup on Mellon ice during Versus' broadcasts next season as the Pens steam towards the Finals again is not something we're looking forward to.
It will haunt us.
It will taunt us.
But so be it.
It will serve as a reminder of what was and what could have been.
We'll wait all our lives for that Game 7 on Saturday night in Detroit, Michigan, that will never come.
I agree with yester. I could go into alot of hockey jargin about the Pens and the little things that they could have done better. Thats the experience (and old age) that Detroit has. Next year, while half of Detriot's team is sitting in the nursery home eating oatmeal through a straw, the Pens will be raising the cup!!!!!!!
One thing that bothered me about last night's game......
When Henrik Zetterberg got the MVP award, Pittsburgh fans booed (bood?) him as it was being presented. How unsportsman-like was that? I actually felt bad for the guy.
The other thing that bothered me is how utterly silent the whole building really was when the boys were skating around holding the Stanley Cup. OK, yes, your team lost. I was pulling for the Pens, too.. But out of love for the GAME, can we support the guys who finally got what they've wanted all their lives?
