DETROIT (AP) - Detroit's Mikael Samuelsson broke out of a slump
with two goals and Chris Osgood stifled the Pittsburgh Penguins
with 19 saves to lift the Red Wings to a 4-0 victory in the opening
game of the Stanley Cup finals on Saturday night.
Samuelsson doubled his playoff goal total with two in the
biggest game of his five-season NHL career. He had been dropped to
Detroit's third line earlier in the playoffs and had posted only
two assists since his two-goal outburst on May 1.
Detroit overpowered goalie Marc-Andre Fleury with a 36-shot
Game 2 is Monday night in Detroit.
