Well, even though I was cheering for Detroit I'm not disappointed that the Penguins won it. Most of the players on that team deserved to win, and the image of Crosby holding up the cup will be incredible for the league. Really is a picture that's worth a thousand words.
As for the game itself, I agree the penalties kind of dragged it, which is very annoying considering the refs put the whistles away for the rest of the series... and the game where it's most important to have a good flow, to try and draw fans in, they bring them back out. The league is fucking retarded like that sometimes.
But the last period was incredible. Detroit made a game out of it and up to the last minute you thought they were going to score. The save Fleury made in literally the last second against Detroit is one of the most incredible saves I've ever seen.
On a more specific note, I was very happy to see a local boy from Quebec, Maxime Talbot, shine in this game and get both goals, really a great performance on his part.
Hopefully the ratings for this game will be tremendous and the league can grow on them next season. And hopefully we'll have two different teams in the cup finals
