Every year, whether I've watched much of the Hockey Season or not, I watch a clinching game of the Stanley Cup Finals. I watch it not for the action itself (which is always awesome) but for the celebration. There's nothing else like it in Sports.
You celebrate at the buzzer, you shake hands with the other team, you celebrate the Conn Smythe winner, and then you pass the Cup around. Every single league should adopt this policy and credit the NHL. It's the best trophy and the best celebration.
Detroit got to celebrate tonight, and for the 11th team as a team, but it wasn't without a scare....
It goes without saying that Detroit was just too fast and too strong for the Pens, but it was a great Series none-the-less. Let's hope the NBA Finals follows suit.
