The best saves of the night in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals might have gone to Rob Scuderi, a veteran defenseman whose one goal in 23 playoff games this season actually puts him ahead of his career scoring pace (three goals in 300 regular-season games). But despite coming to the aid of his goalie with three stops in the final 30 seconds of the Penguins' 2-1 win, Long Island's own will yield the battle of the crease back to goalies Marc-Andre Fleury and Chris Osgood in Game 7.

A slim majority of voters think the Penguins will win on the road in Game 7 (although if you take votes from Pennsylvania and Michigan out of the equation, it's a 50-50 split). But do the Wings have the edge in net?


Ozzie kept the score the way it was with some great saves. He is on his game right now ... wish everyone else was too last night. I think the Wings played a really good game last night. The Pens played really tough defense and rolled with the punches really well. Home ice really has been the difference for them.

I think MAF has played very well at home. Stoning Cleary last night on the breakaway was awesome. He plays rock solid when he HAS to, but has been iffy when the game isn't on the line. I'm optimistic about Friday night because it's all on the line, but a little worried because the Joe has been his Kryptonite (3, 3, and 5 goals in 3 games).
