Facts and figures from Game 3
A few of the pertinent numbers from Pittsburgh's 4-2 victory over Detroit in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals on Tuesday night.

3 -- Career losses in the finals by Osgood -- two against Pittsburgh last year and the third in Game 3 on Tuesday. He has a 10-3 career record in the Stanley Cup finals; his .769 winning percentage is still tops among all goaltenders with at least 10 decisions, just ahead of Hall of Famer Ken Dryden (24-8, .750).

0 -- Shorthanded goals scored during this year's postseason by the Penguins. It's actually been a tough postseason all around for shorthanded goals -- only six have been scored in this year's playoffs, down from 17 in 2008. Detroit has one, down from six last spring.

1 -- Points in the finals by Sidney Crosby, who got his first of the series with an assist on Sergei Gonchar's game-winning goal in the third period. Crosby also led the Penguins with three shots on goal.

1 -- Scoreless periods in the first three games of this year's finals. Neither team scored in the second period of Game 3, the first time that's happened in the series.

2 -- Goals allowed by Detroit's Chris Osgood on Pittsburgh's seven first-period shots. That matched the Penguins' entire output in the first two games, on 64 shots.

4 -- First-period goals by the two teams in Game 3, one more than they combined for in the first two games. Pittsburgh had one first-period goal in each of the first two games; Detroit had one in Game 1 and didn't score in the opening 20 minutes of Game 2.

4 -- Times in this year's playoffs that the Penguins have been outshot, in 20 games. Pittsburgh is 3-1 in those games. Detroit fell to 10-5 this spring when outshooting the opposition.

6 -- Goals scored by Detroit's Henrik Zetterberg in this year's playoffs with a goaltender in the net. Zetterberg's first-period goal was his 10th of the postseason but just the sixth that beat a goaltender. He has all four of Detroit's empty-net goals this spring.

7 -- Wins by Pittsburgh in Game 3 after losing the first two games of a playoff series. The Penguins' 7-3 record includes victories over Washington and Detroit this year after losing Games 1 and 2.

8:16 -- Elapsed time in the third period before Detroit managed a shot on goal. Johan Franzen's shot came after Pittsburgh got the first five shots of the period against Chris Osgood.

9:55 -- Time between attempted shots on goal by Pittsburgh in the first period. The Penguins took a 1-0 lead on Maxime Talbot's goal; they didn't have another attempted shot on goal until 15:43, when Sidney Crosby was stopped from close-in by Osgood. Detroit had 10 consecutive shots on goal and 12 consecutive shots at goal.

10 -- Hits credited to Pittsburgh's Chris Kunitz through the first two periods, only two short of the total of the entire Detroit team through 40 minutes. Kunitz averaged more than a hit a minute -- he played 9:57 in the first two periods. He finished with 11, far more than any player on either team. The Penguins finished the night with 36 hits, compared to 16 for the Wings.

12 -- Combined power plays for the Red Wings (6) and Penguins (6) through the first three games of this year's finals. Last year, they combined for 22 in the first two games alone.

18 -- Shots blocked by the Penguins, compared to only five for the Red Wings. Fourteen Penguins blocked at least one shot; Jordan Staal was tops with three.

18 -- Power-play goals allowed, on just 63 chances, by the Red Wings in this year's playoffs after allowing two extra-man goals in Game 3. Detroit has allowed three power-play goals in Pittsburgh's six advantages in the series. By comparison, the Wings have allowed just 21 goals at even strength (all 5-on-5) in their 19 postseason games.

Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup Final Gear24 -- Game 3s played in the Stanley Cup finals by the Red Wings. The loss on Tuesday night dropped their all-time record to 12-12, including back-to-back losses to Pittsburgh in the past two years.

25 -- Goals by Franzen in his last 35 playoff games, the most of anyone in the NHL. Franzen's first-period goal was his 12th in this year's playoffs, tops on the Red Wings.

26 -- Shots on goal by Detroit through the first two periods, compared to just 11 for the Penguins. The third period was a complete reversal, with the Penguins outshooting Detroit 10-3, cutting the final margin to 29-21 for the Wings.

33 -- Points during this year's playoffs by Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin, including assists on the first three Penguin goals in Game 3. Malkin's point total is the highest by one player since 1996, when Colorado captain Joe Sakic had 34 points while leading the Avalanche to the Stanley Cup.

44 -- Previous Stanley Cup finals in which one team won both of the first two games. Of those teams, 41 won the Cup, including the Red Wings against Pittsburgh last spring.
