Here are the morning papers for the Stanley Cup finals which resume on Wednesday night...
Detroit Red Wings (1) versus Pittsburgh Penguins (2):
- Last night's loss has sent many Wings fans into a panic, writes Michael Rosenberg. Anything can happen now, opines Mitch Albom. Drew Sharps tells readers that the Penguins rained on Chris Osgood's parade. Bob Wojnowski has it right when he says that Marc-Andre Fleury stole that game for the Penguins last night. The Detroit News provides readers with the fan perspective before last night's game.
- Last night's game sure was not a 60 minute formality, writes Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Detroit does not look so invincible anymore, writes Ron Cook. Game 5 was an epic contest, writes Gene Collier. As Shelly Anderson writes, all the Cup talk during the third period was premature.
