No game scheduled. The Stanley Cup finals resume Monday with Game 5 in Detroit.

Monday, June 2
Pittsburgh at Detroit (8 p.m. EDT). The Red Wings will get the first of three potential chances to hoist the Cup for an 11th time.

-Jiri Hudler, Red Wings, snapped a third-period tie to lift Detroit to a 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh and 3-1 lead in the finals.

Detroit rallied from an early deficit to beat Pittsburgh 2-1 Saturday night and grab a 3-1 lead in the Stanley Cup finals. The Penguins were a perfect 9-0 in the Igloo during the postseason and hadn't lost at home since falling in a shootout to San Jose on Feb. 24 - a span of 17 games. Now they will have to figure out how to win at Joe Louis Arena to force the series back to Pittsburgh for Game 6. Six teams have survived long enough to reach Game 7 after trailing 3-1 in the finals, but only the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs - who fell behind 3-0 to the Red Wings - came all the way back to win.

Down 2-1 in a win-or-else Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals on Saturday night, the Penguins had a two-man advantage for 1:26 of the third period but could not score. The Red Wings won 2-1 to take a 3-1 lead in the finals. Game 5 is Monday in Detroit.

``It's a lot of fun, obviously, in the Stanley Cup finals. It was kind of a lucky goal, but I'll take it. I was thinking, 'I shouldn't be here right now. I want to play good D first.''' - Jiri Hudler, who snapped a third-period tie to lift Detroit to a 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh and 3-1 lead in the finals on Saturday night.
