Conklin, Hossa Battle Former Team In Stanley Cup Finals Rematch

Katie EvansCorrespondent IFebruary 8, 2009

The Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins battled it out Sunday afternoon in a Stanley Cup Finals rematch with a outcome similar to last June.

With lots of pressure and great chances for Detroit, Pittsburgh, Marian Hossa, and Ty Conkiln got the win against their former team with a 3-0 shutout.

After a first period of great chances and the showing off of skills for both teams it wasn't until the second period that Pavel Datsyuk scored a power play goal to finally get things started.

Marian Hossa, through all the harassment from fans, got it past Marc-Andre Fleury and scored his 30th goal of the season.

Shortly after, Datsyuk scored once again to lead Detroit 3-0 closing the door on Pittsburgh.

Detroit seems to be off to a good start following their five game losing streak they faced at the end of January and seek to add another win Tuesday in Nashville
