In a rematch of the 2008 Stanley Cup Final when Detroit won the Cup, the Penguins and Red Wings dueled to a Game 7 for a second consecutive year in 2009. Pittsburgh jumped out to a 2-0 advantage in Game 7 behind two goals from Maxime Talbot and never looked back, holding on for a 2-1 win capped by Marc-Andre Fleury’s last-second dramatic save.
Seven-time Emmy Award-winner Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick, U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame member Eddie Olczyk and ‘Inside-the-Glass’ analyst Pierre McGuire called the matchup from Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Mich.
BLACKHAWKS-FLYERS (2010 STANLEY CUP FINAL GAME 6) AT 5 P.M. ET
In a 4-3 overtime thriller, Patrick Kane netted the Cup-winning extra period goal to propel Chicago to their first Stanley Cup win since 1961. With the victory, the Blackhawks ended the league’s longest active Stanley Cup drought and began the Blackhawks’ run of three Stanley Cups (2010, 2013, 2015) in six years.
Emrick, Olczyk, and McGuire called the Stanley Cup Final action from Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, Pa.
BLACKHAWKS-BRUINS (2013 STANLEY CUP FINAL GAME 6) AT 7 P.M. ET
Trailing the series 3-games-to-2, the Bruins looked like they would force a Game 7 when they took a 2-1 lead late into the 3rd period of Game 6. But when Chicago’s Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scored 17 seconds apart, the Hawks shocked the Boston crowd to earn a 3-2 victory and captured their second Stanley Cup in four years.
Emrick, Olczyk, and McGuire had the call from TD Garden in Boston, Mass.
CAPITALS-GOLDEN KNIGHTS (2018 STANLEY CUP FINAL GAME 5) AT 9 P.M. ET
This series pitted the expansion Golden Knights in their first season facing the Capitals, who were trying to end their infamous championship drought. Behind a goal from Alex Ovechkin, and the Cup-clinching goal from Lars Eller, the Capitals overcame a 3rd period deficit to beat the Golden Knights 4-3 to win their first-ever Stanley Cup. Ovechkin was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy.
Emrick, Olczyk, and McGuire had the call from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.
