Penguins win, sweep series



Published: Tue, May 26, 2009 @ 10:20 p.m.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins are headed back to the Stanley Cup finals.

Max Talbot had a goal and an assist to help the Penguins beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 on Tuesday night and finish off a sweep in the Eastern Conference finals. Pittsburgh lost to Detroit last year in a six-game final series.

Ruslan Fedotenko and Bill Guerin also scored, and Craig Adams added an empty-netter. Crosby had two assists to extend his point streak to six games, and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped the final 30 shots he faced in shutting down Carolina during the final 58 minutes.

If the Stanley Cup champion Red Wings beat Chicago in the West finals, it will set up the first finals rematch since the Edmonton Oilers and the New York Islanders met in 1983 and 1984.

not this year......wings are beaten up too badly with lidstrom, datsyuk and draper injured. i'm sure they'll play in the finals, but nowhere near 100%.

the only injury pittsburgh has to deal with is gonchar's knee and they've managed just fine so far.

osgood is a joke and so is the wings penalty kill this year.

pens will win in 5 or 6.
