Stanley Cup Winner: Detroit Red Wings

Congratulations, Detroit. The Penguins put up a fight until the last second (literally), but the Big Red Machine proved too powerful. Hockeytown has now won its 4th Cup in 11 years. The Penguins didn't come out with the jump you would expect after pulling off the thrilling win Monday night, but played well - especially as the game was winding down. Detroit played the same way they've played all year: not harder, not faster, not anything.

Here's hoping that the impending free agency of many top players doesn't gut the Penguins and the youngsters can make another exciting run in the not too distant future.
