Lidstrom is at the top of that list. He is likely to win his sixth Norris Trophy as the NHL’s top defenseman at next week’s awards show Toronto. His fellow Swedes call him perfect. I keep looking at him, looking for a snag from this guy, Red owner Ilitch said. He’s done a great job as the captain. I think he picked a little off. They both work hard and they’re down to earth and humble. The guys really follow him. Lidstrom was beaming with pride. He is one of five players who played on all four of Detroit’s most recent Cup-winning clubs. I’ve been over here for a time and I watched Yzerman hoist it for us three times the past, and I’m very proud of being the first European, Lidstrom said. I’m very proud of being the captain of the Red. much history with the team and great tradition. Zetterberg, destined to be the Red ‘ next Ron Duguay Jersey captain after Lidstrom retires, finished tied with Pittsburgh’s Crosby for the playoff scoring lead with 27 points, a Red club record. Zetterberg was just as strong defensively, particularly this series against Crosby. But he was most proud of seeing his fellow Swede be presented with the Cup from NHL commissioner Bettman. It’s great to see him lifting the Cup and with the ‘C’ on his chest.
It means much for the team and the organization, Zetterberg said. He’s bringing it every night. He’s probably our best player every night. Goaltender Chris Osgood, 10 years after first backstopping the Red to the Cup, completed a successful comeback his second stint with the club. He started the playoffs as the backup, but took over the first round for ineffective Dominik Hasek and was stellar. Coming back here, I always wanted to play Detroit, Osgood said. And just kept fighting, never gave up. Worked on my game and did the right things I needed to do to get to this moment. I never doubted myself. I just needed the opportunity. Rafalski, Valtteri Filppula and Zetterberg scored for the Red, who withstood a late charge by the Penguins. Pittsburgh cut the lead to 3 on a power-play goal by Marian Hossa with 1 remaining. The Penguins nearly tied it the final seconds when a shot by Hossa bounced around dangerously the crease behind Osgood. Clinging to a one-goal lead, Zetterberg scored on a strange play at 7 of the third period. His shot squirted through goalie – Fleury’s pads. The puck sat the crease, but nobody except referee Joannette knew where it was. Fleury fell back and knocked it into his own net. For the second time three, the Red killed a lengthy two- advantage by Pittsburgh. This one lasted for 1 midway through the first period, after Rafalski had given them a 1 lead with a power-play goal at 5. Fleury then let a soft goal to Filppula at 8 of the Ron Greschner Jersey second period, which gave the Red a 2 lead. Evgeni Malkin scored his first goal of the series, on the power play, to cut Pittsburgh’s deficit to 2 at 15 of the second period. After being shut out the first two, the Penguins played the Red tough. But Detroit had too much skill, experience and determination to be denied. We were more battle-tested this year than the last two playoffs, Holland said.
