Kristen Bell says there's one person she's never forgetting: Detroit Red Wings star Chris Osgood.

Maybe not a household name to non-hockey fans, but Bell says that growing up as a tomboy in Detroit, she considered Osgood "my first crush."

"Brad Pitt be damned – he had nothing on Osgood's rookie skill and sad eyes," Bell, 26, says on "There was actually a day in high school when I wrote on a name tag 'Mrs. Osgood' and wore it the whole day. I really thought we were perfect for each other. I'd love to meet him – and probably apologize that things never worked out."

Needless to say, the star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall is rooting for Osgood's Red Wings, who are up two-games-to-none in the Stanley Cup Finals, with game three set for Wednesday on NBC.

"I grew up in Detroit and have always been a huge Wings fan. They have heart, skill, class – and the best color combination known to man," she says. "That is why they will win."
