The first Kings team to win eight consecutive games was a rugged fan favorite anchored by goalie Rogie Vachon and legendary defenseman Terry Harper. The second time it happened, the roster included future Hall of Famers Wayne Gretzky and Luc Robitaille. On Saturday afternoon at Staples Center, the current Kings have a chance to erase their predecessors from the record book by winning a franchise-best ninth in a row. But whether that will also win these Kings a special place in team lore may take longer to sort out. "We're trying to find out what kind of team we're going to be," said Kings Coach Terry Murray, whose squad faces the Detroit Red Wings in a 1 p.m. matinee.

Steve Yzerman has the best and worst job in sports. Yzerman, executive director of the Canadian Olympic men's hockey team for the Vancouver Games, is blessed with the deepest talent pool but faces enormous pressure to win a medal in the sport that's a national obsession. Yzerman spent most of last week in California scouting the Ducks, Kings and San Jose Sharks against the Philadelphia Flyers, Tampa Bay Lightning and Calgary Flames, picking up nuances he can't get on TV. "I think it helps to go out and see everybody live, see what they're doing, see what situations they're playing in," he said.

Revived by a day's rest and the return of Pavel Datsyuk, the Red Wings reduced the Penguins to a bunch of petulant 2-year-olds Saturday while moving to within one victory of claiming the Stanley Cup for the second successive season. Capitalizing on a series of bad Pittsburgh penalties during the second period, Detroit turned Game 5 of the finals into a 5-0 rout before a happy and Cup-craving crowd at Joe Louis Arena.

They had superstars block shots and support players score goals, meaning that the Pittsburgh Penguins essentially turned themselves inside out Tuesday to defeat the Detroit Red Wings and claw their way back into the Stanley Cup finals.

As it turns out, rest is overrated. The Detroit Red Wings cried foul when the NHL scheduled the start of the Stanley Cup finals series against the Pittsburgh Penguins just three days after their Western Conference finals victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. And then to make the veteran-laden team play back-to-back nights to open the finals? How would they manage to stay on their skates?

Putting two exceptionally skillful teams on the ice to open the Stanley Cup finals produced a pair of goals made possible by odd bounces off the end boards and a survival-mode triumph by the Detroit Red Wings that was as impressive as any they've recorded this season. Depleted by injuries and only three days removed from winning the Western Conference title, the Red Wings on Saturday withstood the young Pittsburgh Penguins' energetic middle period by using their brains as much as their brawn.

Opened in 1979, Joe Louis Arena is not only one of the oldest arenas in the NHL, it's also among the quirkiest. Case in point: The end boards and their rubber band-like action that the Detroit Red Wings used to record a 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals on Saturday night. The win gave the Red Wings an early advantage in the best-of-seven series with Game 2 scheduled for tonight in Detroit.
