What a great game. I remember screaming so loud at the TV, I went hoarse. Watching Darren get the OT-winner was even more of a "f*** you".

If you start a new thread within two hours after a Wings game, specifically a loss, YOU ARE WRONG.

In honor of Shanahan's mid-air collision with Roy I will be sure to pounce on the first goalie I might see today.


Shanahan coming out of nowhere and slamming into Roy is my favorite part of the whole incident

I'll never forget that day. I was just a 13 year old kid who loved the Red Wings. But after that night, my passion for the Wings became even stronger. Also my hatred for the avs grew stronger. Those were such great memories back then. I miss the days of viewing our Red Wings on an almost mythological level.

This DVD is absolutely amazing. Anyone who doesn't own this needs to buy it right now.

I usually do a re-read of "Blood Feud", but today I was pressed for time, so I just read the chapter about today.

Happy Turtle Day!

A lot of us were so young in the 90's, and I will admit that I probably didn't understand the full hockey aspect of the significance. I was only 7. But I will say that when you're a kid everything seems like good vs. evil to you, and it just made me realize there were my heroes. Like instead of hearing stories about princesses and dragons before bed, I would listen to my mom talk about how Claude Lemieux is evil but it's okay because McCarty beat the s*** out of him.

Crap.. I must be getting old.

I was on spring break from college visiting my brother in Huntington Beach. My brother's roomate and I went snowboarding @ Big Bear that day and I made him go back early so that I could catch the game. He bitched the whole way back about leaving early just to watch the game (even though he's originally from Michigan and is Wings fan).

Needless to say, he thanked me and said that it was the greatest game he had ever seen.

And you haven't read "Blood Feud" then pick it up. It's a great read.

YOU must be getting old?? Haha, I was 35 at the time, and was at the Joe that night. One of the greatest nights of my life, watching The Avs get pounded, the Wings comeback and winning on Darren's goal in OT, and laughing at Mike Keane when he said after the game that the Wings had no heart, and waited until they played at home to get back at Claude and the Avs..........

Shanny actually tweeted the following about it yesterday:

@Kap19 Roy told me years later that he screwed up his shoulder on that flying take down & it never healed. i pretended that was a bad thing.
...
Actually i always respected him as a competitor. Hated losing to him and loved to beat him. Great rivalry and VERY real. Old school.

I will assume you are being sarcastic. And even if you aren't, I probably don't even want to know why yo think this way.

I like how Mac is throwing knees or at least trying to once Turtle is against the boards. That was true hatred and sticking up for your road roommate at its finest.
