shhh...don't tell the wings fans. maybe if datsyuk did what he was supposed in the conference semifinals against anaheim, detroit would have won in 5 or 6 games and wouldn't be so banged up. datsyuk played poorly all playoffs, before and after the broken foot.
the truth of the matter is the wings were shell shocked in game 7. they thought their home ice advantage would carry them through but it didn't. they assumed they would win because they are the wings and no one can beat them. instead, they faced a hungrier pens teams that put them on their tails. next thing you know they start taking cheap shots like what franzen did to crosby.
