See if former Sioux City Musketeer, Ruslan Fedotenko, now Pittsburgh Penguin, can pull off a win in game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals tonight. The Penguins take on the Detroit Red Wings on home ice. Catch the game at 7:00 central time on Versus.
Before breaking into the NHL Fedotenko was a Sioux City Musketeer during the 1998-99 season. He went on to play for the Philadelphia Flyers until 2002 when he signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning. It was here that Fedotenko had his first Stanley cup victory scoring the game winning goal in game 7 of the 2004 finals, bringing the cup to the Tampa Bay franchise for the first time. Fedotenko brought “Lord Stanley” back to Sioux City on August 15, 2004 to share with over 3,000 fans at the Tyson Events Center.
Fedotenko’s going for cup number two in this year’s Stanley Cup Finals. Pittsburgh is down by one game in the series going into game 4 tonight. Pittsburgh is looking for revenge after losing to Detroit in game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals last year.
Good luck to Ruslan!
