Wednesday May 28

With the Detroit Red Wings having completely neutered the Pittsburgh Penguins offensively through the first 2 games of the Stanley Cup Final, the focus was on Pittsburgh reversing their woes in Game 3 at home. The Pens were 8-0 at home on the playoffs entering Wednesday night's matchup. Here is a look at the results:

* The Penguins eked out a 3-2 win to improve to 9-0 in the playoffs on home ice. Pittsburgh cut Detroit's series lead to 2-1. FI Detroit goalie Chris Osgood made a solid effort stopping 21 of 24 shots but took the loss. Ozzie fell to 12-3 on the playoffs but maintains a super-low goals against average (1.48) and an impressive save percentage (.935). Sidney Crosby led the charge for the Pens scoring the first 2 goals of the game just about 5 minutes apart from the end of the opening frame to the start of the 2nd Period.

The series resumes on Saturday at the Mellon Arena. Check back for more updates at FIW.
