Wings-Penguins Game 5 Preview

I am going to keep this quick and easy. I think Detroit will come storming out of the gates tonight seeing that they are playing in front of their home crowd at the Joe. The Pens will not be able to contain them and take early penalties. The Wings will capitalize on the powerplay(s) and bury the kid team by a score of about 4-1, solidifying the fact that experience does count and that the Wings were not too old. No, the Penguins were too young.
Anything else that happens tonight would be uncivilized.
I want to see Sid the Kid cry in defeat. I want to see Mario Lemieux weeping in his cushy little booth. I want the Penguins' heads on platters. And yes, I actually do want to see a European captain hoist the Stanley Cup for the first time in history, so we can all shutup about it!
No need to drag this series out. Get it over with tonight Detroit....please!
