The Detroit Red Wings failed to clinch their second consecutive Stanley Cup title Tuesday night, after the Pittsburgh Penguins won 2-1 at Mellon Arena.

This exciting series has now become a best-of-one series.
The Pens led 2-0 in the third period, but the Red Wings shaved the lead in half with just under 12 minutes to go in the game.
It was a crazy finish. The Wingers put the pressure on goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, but he was clutch along with his Pens defenders. Fleury had 21 saves, much better than his performance in game five, when he allowed five goals in less than two periods.
Ozzy was good, but not good enough; he had 25 saves on 27 shots on goal.
The winner-take-all game seven is set for Friday night at 8 p.m. from Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. 
A notable statistic in this series: Detroit has outscored Pittsburgh 11-2 at the Joe in the Stanley Cup Finals.
