The end is bitter sweet

Once the game was over, Penguin's fans proved what a great sports town Pittsburgh really is by cheering for their players and politely applauding the cup. At that point, I turned off the television; the one thing I could not watch was members of the Red Wings lifting the Stanley Cup at Mellon Arena. It was such an abrupt ending to a great season, I could understand the Penguin players sitting on the ice with disbelief, disappointment, and exhaustion warring on their faces.

Robert Dvorchak summed it up nicely in his article, Penguins dream season ends in 3-2 loss to Detroit.

"Just like that, it's over. No more comebacks, no more sacrifices, no more hockey parties for this season, no seventh game in Detroit."- R. Dvorchak, Post-Gazette, 6/5/08

Thanks for the great ride, Pens! See you next year.
