Penguins headed back to Cup finals, Wings soon to follow

Wow – did I whiff on that one.

Perhaps it’s just that I didn’t want to see another Pittsburgh-Detroit Stanley Cup final, but unless somehow Cristobal Huet morphs into Tony Esposito and lifts Chicago to three straight wins, that’s exactly what fans will see again.

So, the storyline won’t be how the Blackhawks’ Andrew Ladd and Carolina’s Tuomo Ruutu will seek revenge on their former clubs. Instead, expect it to be Marian Hossa’s return to Steel City in a Red Wings uniform, looking to make good on the reason why he joined them in the first place.
