As far as cheering for your team, I'm pretty sure mindfly cheers hard for the Wings. Maybe even harder than any of us, based on how angry he gets over each mistake or loss.

This.

It's been known for some time that the only way you can beat the Red Wings (with any consistency) is to rough them up, and get them outta their puck possession style that we see them play throughout the regular season.

There's alot of hockey left to be played in this series, and last year we beat the Ducks so it's not as though this spring is a lost cause when we face a physical team like this years Coyotes.

I will say though that it's this style of hockey that we see every playoffs, and it's why I was hoping to see guys like Moen, and Malhotra signed instead of guys like Williams.


The 09 Ducks didn't take the series to seven because they played too physical. No team beats Detroit just because they are physical (that sure as hell isn't why they won last night). That has always been a myth.

They took the series to seven because they had a dominant first line and a defensive core that was able to keep Detroit's forwards to the outside and basically pad Hiller's stats with perimeter shots.

Exactly. Being physical doesn't affect the Wings as much as the MSM likes to believe. If anything, it gives us a few more powerplays. It's when the Wings cant get to the inside lanes that we're in trouble. Like last night...

"During Robert Langís time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y
