Congrats, Pittsburgh... hope next time you have to earn it!

Game 7 Pittsburgh 1st goal - offside play, as documented by NHL hired national broadcast crew.
Game 7 Pittsburgh 2nd goal - one minute after horrific Hal Gill interference on dump in, not surprisingly not called.

Detroit goal, well, no ref help on that one.

Real score: Detroit 1, Pittsburgh 0, NHL League office/Refs/Gary Bettman 2. Sorry to see the league goals are chalked up on the Pitt side!

Hate to be a bitter, homer fan, but the reality is that sometimes that is justified by the circumstances!

Pittsburgh showed their character... AGAIN!

Interesting parallel between games 1, 2, and 5. Detroit lead & Pittsburgh becomes a bunch of dirty punks throwing cheap shots and wicked slashes. What a bunch of classy guys. I can see why Bettman wants Crosby & Malkin to be the face of the league!

Games 3 and 4, interestingly, have no cheap shots or bitter penalties just because we were getting beat.

Thankfully the refs did a little more to step up and control the violence, keeping our players from getting hurt by a bunch of petulant children.
