Detroit v. Pittsburgh
2 industrialized cities on their economic death beds competing for the Stanley Cup.
The last 2 teams to do back-2-back cups? Detroit & Pittsburgh
In 2007, the Stanley Cup made its first trip into a combat zone. During the trip to Kandahar, Afghanistan ... the Cup was put on display for Canadian and other NATO troops. It briefly came under missile attack on May 3.
Sure, so while looking at the list of champions, I noticed that Scotty Bowman, the former Red Wings coach, under whom they won the first Cup in 42 years, was a repeat coach, and repeat and repeat ... having coached the following teams to win the Stanley Cup:
Montreal: '73, '76, '77, '78, '79,
Detroit: '97, '98, '02
Can you get tired of winning so often?
