OTD: Detroit Red Wings clinch 2008 Stanley Cup [Tribue Video]

Sharing is caring!

On this day in 2008, the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 to clinch another Stanley Cup, their 11th in franchise history and fourth Cup in 11 seasons.

The Wings won the game 3-2 on goals by Brian Rafalski, Valtteri Filppula, and the eventual game-winner from Henrik Zetterberg. And arguably one of the more iconic scenes in recent Detroit sports history is seeing goaltender Chris Osgood sprawl out in an attempt to deflect the puck and disrupt a last-chance shot from Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin as time expired.
