Last time I saw the Wings get swept was 1995 in the Cup finals. Wasn't that joyful. At least that happened in New Jersey.


I feel bad for the fans who paid money to see this train wreck.

Ericsson pinching + Williams on the D = disaster

That was Rafalski--not Williams on D

f***. My. Life.

Ericsson got caught down low and it just had to be Marleau and Thornton back at the time.

Christ.

This series exposed what we already knew-- Howard just isn't ready to be a Cup winner yet. Maybe he's just worn out after the stretch of 25 consecutive games at the end of the year. Maybe he just isn't mentally confident (that's what tonight looked like).

In the end Howie lost this game for the Wings.

Anyone else find it hilarious that all of the sudden the Wings are getting penalized left and right? How do you go from being the second least penalized team in the league to racking up penalties like thef****** Ducks?

A pathetic third period by a team that had to win.

Pathetic.

Did you magically miss the 2003 playoffs?



No, I apparently forgot about it, though. I watched it like I watch every year the Wings are in the playoffs.....must have blocked it out.

The Sharks are the wings of a couple years ago. They are better at puck possession. They force the Wings to take bad penalties. They are the better team.

Too true... "Mclellan"

Obviously they will also get into cap problems after this year, not a single team will stay competative for long in this era

Umm... right. Here's the cycle of thought fans go through.

IF: Your team misses the playoffs by a huge margin: Big changes are necessary. We'll get some great picks, at least.
IF: Your team narrowly misses the playoffs: We need a couple of players to put us over the top.
IF: Your team is eliminated in the first two rounds of the playoffs (not repeatedly): We may need a couple of minor changes, but the team is mostly solid.
IF: Your team makes the finals but does not win: Keep the team intact.
IF: Your team wins the Cup or makes the finals but fails to make the finals the next year: We need big changes.

It's pretty ridiculous.


You obviously don't know how to run a team.

The team is getting slower. Getting less skilled. Weaker on the back end. Possibly weaker in goal (of course possibly better in goal). Holland needs to do SOMETHING to rebuild this team, because they are now on the verge of being swept on home ice to the pereniall chokers of the National Hockey league on their own ice.

I don't think the team should be scrapped, but there need to be changes.

6 penalties against the Wings, 1 against the Sharks with tons of non-calls against the sharks. Officiating once again decides this game.

I agree with you 100%. I too feel excited about the Sharks this year as they show so much of a similar style now to your '07 Wings. Its time for the student Tmac to surpass his mentor, Babcock.

Good game tonight, it was tough game all night and I wasn't feeling confidant of a Sharks win tonight. JLA has always been unfriendly to the Sharks.

I still cant believe that goal that Howard let in, com-on it seems like his FyHole is awful or is it just me?

I don't know about that. His five-hole hasn't been great though.

Gotta take the shooter though. The defenseman has to take the pass.

Yup. I dont see how anyone can fault Jimmy for that one. The 3rd goal is another story though...

But anyway Ericsson is a nightmare.

I want to see the Sharks play the Pens in the Finals just to see how the officiating will be.
