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.
Enjoy this video showing the final seconds as the Wings clinched their fourth Stanley Cup in 11 years.

Detroit Red Wings celebrate in locker room
The Red Wings earned their 11th Stanley Cup in franchise history on this date in 2008 with a 3-2 victory over the Penguins at Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh.
And as always, the celebration that followed featured plenty of champagne and beer! Take a look back at the festivities that followed the 2008 win!
These were the days, let’s hope the Red Wings get to celebrate like this again in the not too distant future.
Let’s go Red Wings!
