  1. Well, a period at least. Can blame a million things. If Hudler hadn't crossbarred. If Kronwall had drew the penalty when he got tripped. If we hadn't played back to back games, and 3 in 4 nights...etc, etc, etc. Bottom line, we just ran out of gas, and Vancouver is too good an offensive team to run out of gas with. I called 5-4 earlier in the thread. Figured it would be high scoring. Didn't see that sixth one coming though :-p We had the PP chances early, and did not convert. Our PP takes the "Puck possession" thing a bit too far. Having 2 minutes of time with the puck isn't worth much if you're getting 2 weak shots from the outside. I get the feeling Detroit is going to be working the PP a lot in practice.
  2. SAMMYYYY!!!! Oh wait, wrong team :-p
  3. Smart by Cleary to pull his hands in. Removed any doubt that he willingly knocked it in. You could tell he knew it was coming right for him though. Kinda a dirty goal, but those are the goals that win championships.
  4. Vancouver isn't the kind of team you can't shut out easily. Coming into this game both Sedins have more points than our Dats-Zett combo. Vancouver is a pretty dangerous team offensively. We're playing back to back games. Vancouver isn't. I think it'll open up lot more in the second. I'm kind of expecting a high scoring game. 5-4ish, but it's hard to predict a winner.
  5. You may have to install the veetle software, but it's usually the best feed I can find.
  6. I very rarely speak poorly about anyone's play. Go my history, I'm generally an optimist. But oh my god..........did someone inject the Red Wings with a suck syrup? The game is not over. The Redwings did great at outshooting, and trying to take control. Some aspects of their system are working. But the mistakes, the turnovers, the overall lack of "concern" about the game.....
  7. I'm glad the DARE program is still working wonders.
  8. I have given you a +1. Don't know what that means......but I'm sure it's good. I was having trouble with atdhe. To be honest, I formatted my computer, so I lost a good deal of my links. Atdhe.....I'm not sure what it stands for. I was spelling it athde, and atdhe, and ahtde, and everything but what I needed. Here is the kicker. Most of those "incorrect" names, actually lead to sites that were owned, and operated, and developed. Mostly scwag sites.....guys trying to profit on the mispelling of people looking for other sites.
  9. Ok, I'm high, I'm slightly drunk....I've been searching for a stream to this game for half an hour..... Can someone please give me a stream to this game, with Detroit announcers....that works?

  11. I was gonna throw a little BBQ for her. Kinda a "Welcome to the you f***ed yourself as a journalist"
  12. I know. I grew up in Michigan, and walking to the store was near IMPOSSIBLE cause of the acid pits, and hellfire. But what really use to irk me was the demons that would fly around dive bombing fire and lightning on me. It's rough growing up here
  13. Isn't it cool when you reach that point of fan-dom, where you know deep inside that you've become a true fan.........and then when you're team is the absolute s*** year after year..... Ah yes. I'm blessed to have lived in this era of Red Wings hockey
  14. Still, 8 games without a regulation loss..... I mean, I don't see them going very far, and their luck is going to run out, but it's still an interesting method of staying in/ahead of the game Pretty rare start IMO.
  15. Precisely. Having to kill off 3 penalties to 1 in the 1st is not an uncommon situation. The fact that there were no penalties from that point on, left everyone on an even playing field. Not surprisingly, the game played out VERY evenly. We won in the last 11 seconds. I fear, some of the players are so use to the refs changing the flow of a game for them, that when it gets cut off they don't know what to do. I'm sure by the end of the second they were thinking "Wtf, where's our powerplays?" They were kinda sloppy calls, but it makes me many games would be so much better, if it was more 5 on 5, and less penalty time.
