The Detroit octopus

The octopus first made its appearance on April 15, 1952, during the Red Wings' Stanley Cup playoff run.
Two Detroit brothers, Pete and Jerry Cusimano, who were fishmongers in the Eastern Market, threw one on the ice at Olympia Stadium. Each tentacle of the octopus was symbolic of a win in the playoffs. Back then, the NHL consisted of just the original six teams, and eight wins (two best-of-seven series) were needed to win the Stanley Cup. The Red Wings swept the series that year, and the octopus has come to be the good luck charm ever since.

The tradition carried over to Joe Louis Arena on opening night in 1979 when several of the cephalopods found their way onto the ice.

During the 1995 playoffs, Bob Dubisky and Larry Shotwell, co-workers at a meat and seafood retail company near Detroit, tossed a 38-pound octopus onto the ice during the National Anthem prior to Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals. The year after, the duo struck again with a 50-pounder in the Conference Finals. Although the feat received no air time on the nationally broadcast game, the octopus was proudly displayed on the hood of the Zamboni between periods.

Booooooo!!! Red Wings play boring "trap" hockey. Lets go Pens!!! I have to admit, I catch the pens playing the trap a lot this post season also. Something really needs to be done with this trap business.

I agree. Detroit is too big and slow. They'll tire out soon. They can't last against the smaller, faster European style of the Penguins. Plus, oh I don't know, MALKIN! Oh and Fleury was a fucking madman last game against Philly. NO GOALS FOR YOU!

ummm... Detriot has 12 european players out of 20. I would say they are more European. Which is why the Pens will win... The pens have more Canadians. Pens in 5.
