2008 Stanley Cup: Detroit Snatches Defeat From The Clutches Of Victory!

The Captain -Brian KatesSenior Analyst ISeptember 3, 2016


Oh, it's just too sad to recap.

With the Detroit Red Wings leading 3-2 in the third and less than a minute to go, Maxime Talbot of the Pittsburgh Penguins scored the tying goal, sending the game into overtime.

Then, two and a half overtime periods later, Petr Sykora of the Pens scored, sending Detroit back to Pittsburgh for Game 6.

Game time is 8 p.m. on June 4. Trust me, I'll be watching again, probably this time from behind a pillow.

Here is the high(low)light reel for you.

Now, I think I'll just go cry in my Guinness while I watch "Miracle" and feel good about life again!
