Saturday is get-away day for me. Vacation officially ends as I pack up the family into the suburban assault vehicle and make our way back home from Orlando. We first will make a stop in Jacksonville to visit the mother of the Divine Mrs. R…spending the night as so I can be able to catch game-one of the Stanley Cup Finals.
And speaking of the finals…looks like we all spent the last twelve months going through the draft, free-agent signing season, training camp, pre-season, a regular season in which 30 teams played 82 games apiece, then into the playoffs where 16 teams went to 8 teams which then whittled down to 4 teams and now to only a pair…the same two teams that squared off against each other last June.
Here is a quick run-down on their playoff stats that they have compiled in the past seven week.
Record: Detroit = 12-4… Pittsburgh = 12-5
Goal Per Game: Detroit 3.69… Pittsburgh 3.82
Goals Against Per Game: Detroit 2.12… Pittsburgh 2.76
Power Play: Detroit 25.7%…
