Ice Hockey: Pittsburgh ready for a Red Wings rematch
Thursday 28 May 2009
The Pittsburgh Penguins are back in the Stanley Cup finals after beating the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 to win the Eastern Conference title on Tuesday.
Pittsburgh lost to the Detroit Red Wings last year in the NHL finals but will get a chance to avenge that if the Red Wings beat the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western finals.
Max Talbot put the Penguins 2-1 ahead in the first period as they outscored the Hurricanes 20-9 in the series, netted at least three goals in each game, and trailed for just a total of 20 minutes, 30 seconds.
