Rested & ready to roll: Red Wings have eyes on Cup

DETROIT – DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Red Wings goalie Chris Osgood lounged on his day off, watching the Detroit Tigers, Tiger Woods and basketball when he wasn't taking a 2 1/2-hour nap.

Osgood and the Red Wings hope the much-needed break gives them a boost to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals.

Wings coach Mike Babcock says he's pleased with what he saw from Pavel Datsyuk in his first practice since making his debut in finals after missing seven games with a foot injury.

Datsyuk assisted on the first goal of Game 5, had another assist and made other contributions to help Detroit beat the Penguins 5-0 to take a 3-2 lead in the series.
