A nice twist on a favorite topic - it seems Nashville thought they got hosed by the refs last night.

QUOTE
In a strange twist from yesteryear, the Wings' tough defensive tactics also had the Predators complaining that they weren't getting enough calls from the officials.

"There was an awful lot of clutching and grabbing going on out there,'' Predators center David Legwand said. "It looked like the old NHL out there. But in the playoffs, that's what we're going to have to work through.''


I thought the game was pretty evenly balanced with regard to the officiating: bad calls both ways, missed calls both ways, etc.

Please. They had 2 more PPs than us with two of them in the last couple of minutes in the game. BTW, that goaltender interference was bulls*** on Franzen, Vokoun reached out to get him even though the puck wasn't even in the area. Nashville can suck it about the calls.

There is a reason that the Wings have been on the PK more. They are trying to play tougher and grittier. They are hitting more but they are looking for the hit instead of hitting when the oppertunity is there. This is causing them to be out of position and forcing them to take more penalties. This game is all about discipline and not be retarded when it comes to laying down the law.

I think it just seemed like a good preview of playoff hockey.

I was over on HF Boards and you would not believe the whining that Preds fans are doing because of us playing tight defensively last night!

I do not remember us playing a trap. We constantly had 2 guys on the forecheck. They need to stop looking for excuses.

Nashville - 9:59 of PP time.
Detroit - 5:01 of PP time.

They had almost TWICE AS MUCH TIME ON THE PP as we did.

And they're whining. Logic does not seem to be their strong suit in Nashville.

I don't hear them complain and whine that much when they lose to their other 13 rivals.

All the things you do to me and all the things you said,
I just can't get enough.
I just can't get enough
We slip and slide and we fall in love and I just can't seem to get enough of...
Du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du

Tough sh!t! That's how every team plays against us in the playoffs. I hope we continue with tight defensive play now till mid-June. Defense wins Championships.

Roughriders
Lions
Spartans
