Don’t Blame Osgood

From Drew Sharp at the Free Press:

The coming days will find Detroit in a constant state of complaint. Those who fervently believed in the inevitability of a downtown championship celebration will seek blame for the Stanley Cup inexplicably leaving town.

The more-stubborn conspiracy theorists will take to their graves the certainty in their minds that Pittsburgh’s remarkable recovery from a 3-2 series deficit was a league-orchestrated operation to fulfill Sidney Crosby’s championship destiny.

But there’s one flaw in that theory. You mean there was only one flaw?

Crosby didn’t play the final 30 minutes Friday after an apparent knee injury.

There’s plenty of fault to go around following this collapse. 

Point a finger at the lack of secondary scoring, Marian Hossa’s vanishing act against his former team, as well as the missing in action Tomas Holmstrom and Jiri Hudler.

But you can’t blame Chris Osgood.
