Yes, the shots (58-32) and chances were heavily lopsided in favour of Detroit, but we're getting to the point that anything can happen. And the Penguins have still only lost one game in the past few months at home.
Marc-Andre Fleury was terrific, and that's exactly what Pittsburgh needs. The 23-year-old netminder moved up a mile in the Conn Smythe Trophy race on Monday night.
A player who played well but that you won't hear a lot about? Ryan Whitney, who led both teams with more than 50 minutes ice time and finished plus-2. He had to jump up from the third pairing when Sergei Gonchar went down with an apparent concussion, and didn't look out of place.
