DETROIT (AP) -Sidney Crosby managed only a handful of shots.
Evgeni Malkin coughed up the puck in his own end, leading to a goal.
Marc-Andre Fleury stumbled and fell coming onto the ice before the game.
Where were the high-flying Penguins who rolled to a 100-point season and a 12-2 playoff record?
The Detroit Red Wings can have that effect on a team.
The veteran Wings stifled Crosby, Malkin and the rest of the Pens and threw shot after shot at Fleury in Saturday night's 4-0 win in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals.
Pittsburgh, which was outshot nearly 2-1, will have a couple of days to figure out how to penetrate the Wings' defense and get more quality scoring chances against goalie Chris Osgood.
