Here are the morning papers for the Stanley Cup Finals which resume tonight at the Mellon Arena...
Detroit Red Wings (1) versus Pittsburgh Penguins (2):
- The Red Wings had a fun day off on Friday, writes Helene St. James. Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg will be looking to improve on their average Game 3 performances, writes Bob Wojnowski. Detroit isn't much concerned with the Penguins' unbeaten record at home. The Wings think Tomas Holmstrom will probably suit up tonight. If Holmstrom cannot go tonight, Darren McCarty will take his place in the line-up.
- Petr Sykora of the Penguins believes tonight's Game 4 is a must-win for his club. Forget everything else, the Pens need Marc-Andre Fleury as much as they need anyone. Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette warns readers not to overlook the Wings' Brian Rafalski. Here is a Q & A with Jordan Staal.
