This isn't news anymore. The Detroit Red Wings can advance to the Stanley Cup Finals with a win tonight. It would be Detroit's fifth trip to the Finals since 1995.
What could be more notable is that the Wings have a shot at their tenth straight win tonight. All nine games in this current streak have come with Chris Osgood as the starting goaltender. Despite this 9-0 run, there may not be a more underappreciated goalie in these playoffs than Osgood.
When he took over, he was immediately overshadowed by the Game Five performance of Nashville's Dan Ellis. Then Jose Theodore's head-stand against Minnesota got everyone talking. This round, it was all about the great play of Marty Turco.

Osgood has beaten all three of them, and he's done it without losing a single game. I don't care how good the team is in front of him. That's impressive.
