Another fantastic Stanley Cup Game

Sports fans who didn't watch tonight's game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals missed another treat. Edmonton's Fernando Pisani scored on a shorthanded breakaway in overtime to send the series back to Edmonton for game 6 Saturday night.

A shorthanded breakaway in overtime?

Unfreaking believable.

Of the 5 games played thus far, only one was a blowout (game 2-Carolina 5, Edmonton 0). The other 4 games all were one goal games, and in three of them, the winning goal was scored late (:30 left, 3 minutes left, and tonight in overtime). Game 6 on Saturday night looks like another dandy, and it will be one final opportunity to catch the Edmonton fans singing both national anthems. Edmonton will be rocking.
