Lord Stanley, Lord Stanley, get me the brandy!
The mood at our house tonight is positively giddy! With a pretty young, but determined team, the Pittsburgh Penguins win the Stanley Cup! The Pens beat the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 in game seven of the playoffs. This young team played their hearts out tonight! Our captain Sidney Crosby left the ice in the first period with a mid-section injury only to return for a short time in the third. The team stepped up and carried on. The game came down to the wire with Detroit almost tying the game with only seconds left to play. A hurting, but smiling Sid raised the cup with ease, kissed it proudly, as he has done a million times in his dreams and passed it on to the rest of the team. It is a proud day in Pittsburgh my friends!
