The Detroit Red Wings have a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Finals after an exceptional performance tonight over the Pittsburgh Penguins! The Wings are just 2 more wins away from their 12th Championship (their 4th Championship in last 11 seasons?). The odds are in their favor . . . 41 out of 44 teams to take a 2-0 lead have gone on to win (of course, two of the three teams to battle back from this deficit to win have done so against the Red Wings [the Maple Leafs in ’42, and the Canadiens in ’66; hmm, very interesting]); and teams that have won the first two games at home, have gone on to win the Cup 31 out of 32 times.
Next game: Tuesday night!
