Although many of you will disagree with a thought of winning this series, the Wings are the only team in the NHL that I believe can pull off a 3-0 comeback. They would be the 3rd in history to do such and hopefully this is there year. History will have to be made in order for this to occur.

The reason I believe the wings can pull this off is the they have not been outplayed in any of the games in this series.
All of the games were lost on late mental mistakes by both Howard and the defense.

The wings HAVE to go with a 1 game at a time mentality, otherwise the series is over.

What will have to happen:

  • Babcock will have to control the emotions of the team
  • Howard will have to make big saves all game
  • The defense HAS to tighten up
  • Stop the sharks pp and ignite our offense on our PP's
  • Ref's will have to put there whistles away, no bs calls
  • Wings HAVE to capitalize on the sharks mistakes
  • Smart decisions when on the ice
  • Get more pucks on net
  • Get into Nabbies's head
  • Star players have to play great
  • No giving up when down

Now there are plenty of other things that will have to occur, but the wings must start there.

Lets Go Wings!

I like Johnny Walker as well, but I rarely post under its influence.

How can you say we haven't been outplayed in any game this series? We got severely outplayed yesterday as soon as the 3rd period began. In all honesty, we've been outplayed every game this series.

Yeah, there have been some bad calls and all, but the Sharks have flat out been the better team. They're hungrier, they're getting better goaltending (yes the goalie is actually a part of the team) and they've scored clutch goals in the 3rd that we haven't gotten.

And it's funny how you say we haven't been outplayed, yet you mention that we lost due to Howard and mental mistakes. Doesn't that count as being outplayed? :huh:

What are you on if you think we have been out played every game ? The play has been pretty even even though we have been in the box way to much ! The only thing you have been right about is Howard .And no its not likley but it is possible and the Wing are the team that can pull off such a come back !They have won four in a row before why not again .One game at a time I will be watching and expecting a win on thursday and thats where it starts!!!!!

  • Wings were 7/7 on the P.K.
  • Only lost each game by 1 goal
  • The most important thing is to stop making stupid mistakes... fluke goals, bad bounces, s***ty players dressing
See you at the WCF


But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

Sick of these people saying we got outplayed, we don't score goals when we have an offensive push, then we can't keep it in (lidstroms stick breaks / other s***) and it leads to odd man rushes..

This phrase is fast becoming way overused. Seems like some people think that anytime someone scores a goal on us, or we get outscored in a period it's because we were coasting at the time. I swear some people just look at the end result and then pick whatever cliche seems the most likely cause.

We played fine in the third last night. Conservative, but not overly so. We put up 9 shots and had a number of chances. The truth is; a good player made a good play, then Jimmy let in a weak one. That's it.

I'm about 98% confident that if Brad May is inserted into the lineup, we will win this series.

Sometimes it feel like the Wings are just trolling. They'll put themselves down 3-0 then win in 7 and be like "Trolled". But seriously, they seem to play well with their backs against the wall, which will be every game til the end of the series. I think the Wings from Round 1 Game 7 will show up tomorrow, and they'll just roll from there.

Of course the Wings CAN win the series.

It is slim/none that they WILL win the series though. I'd love to be wrong but it is all but over.

If they can somehow force it up to game 6 I might change my tune a bit.

I believe they can win but you have to realize that if we make even 1 mistake... it's over. We have NO room for error. We have to be flawless.
