Former MSU Captain the Hero as Wings Fall

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Only one game in Pittsburgh already has the Detroit Red Wings wishing for a change of venue.
The Red Wings got off to a fast start in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals -- maybe too fast.
Along the way, they forgot what got them their two relatively easy victories in the opening two games in Detroit, and the 3-2 loss to the Penguins cut their series lead to one game.
The Red Wings' loss means the finals are guaranteed of going to a Game 5 in Joe Louis Arena on Monday night.
Already, Detroit probably can't wait to get back to their octopi-friendly home ice.
There, the Red Wings dominated Pittsburgh in Games 1 and 2 while winning by a combined score of 7-0.
Sidney Crosby ended a tw-game scoreless streak with two goals to give the Penguins a 2-0 lead.
Johan Franzen was "The Mule" as he wove his way through defenders to roof one in front of the net in the second period to make it a one-goal game going into the third.
But, after a mad scramble, Adam Hall banked the puck off Chris Osgood to give Pittsburgh a little breathing room and they held on to win 3-2.
Game 4 is Saturday at 8 p.m. on WILX.
