Ashkon Predicts: Red Wings-Penquins Game 7 Tonight
Game 7 is almost upon us. Before I make my prediction as to who will hoist up the cup, I wanted to share a few facts going into game.
The home team has won each game in this series.
Detroit is 3-2 overall in NHL Finals game 7’s.
The home team has won the last six NHL Finals game 7’s.
Pittsburgh has scored 2 goals on the road compared to 10 at home during this series.
Pittsburgh has never played in a NHL Finals game 7
Look for Detroit to win this game and their 12th Stanley Cup in franchise history. The last time these two teams played in Detriot, the Red Wings won 5-0. This game will be closer, but the game goes to the better goalie. Osgood will outplay Fleury. My prediction: Red Wings 3, Penguins 2.
