SCOREBOARD
Monday, May 26
Pittsburgh at Detroit (8 p.m.) The Penguins try to even the series with the Red Wings when the Stanley Cup finals resume with Game 2.

SAVES
Detroit's Chris Osgood's 19-save shutout of Pittsburgh on Saturday night in Game 1 was the first blanking in a Stanley Cup finals opener since New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur blanked Anaheim in 2003. Osgood's 12th career playoff shutout tied him with former Red Wings great Terry Sawchuk for ninth most in NHL history. Teammate Dominik Hasek is fifth with 14.

OTHER SIDE
Pittsburgh trails in a series for the first time this postseason after dropping Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals Saturday night, 4-0 to Detroit. The Penguins are now 12-3 this postseason after taking 3-0 leads in each of their previous series.

VETERANS MISSING
One day after his 42nd birthday, Pittsburgh forward Gary Roberts skated with his teammates Saturday morning and spent a long time on ice despite learning Friday that coach Michel Therrien planned to sit him for the Stanley Cup finals opener, a 4-0 loss. Detroit defenseman Chris Chelios, the NHL's oldest player at 46, also put in some quality skating Saturday before being scratched for the second straight game. Therrien said Roberts would play Game 2 Monday night in place of enforcer Georges Laraque.

SPEAKING
``He doesn't do anything wrong. I call him the Peyton Manning of the NHL because he gets the puck behind the net, he sees the whole ice, and he never makes a bad pass. ... He just never misses. He's a perfect player. That's what I call him, too. I've got a couple of nicknames for him.'' - Detroit goalie Chris Osgood on five-time Norris Trophy winning defenseman Niklas Lidstrom.
