If this period hasn't helped change people's mind i don't know what will. Never count the wings out. Just cuz it's only happened twice you gotta think of it this way. It HAS happened.
GO WINGS

We lost all games 4-3 so far, which means we will come back to win the series 4-3.


I must say I like your logic.

Not to jinx them tonight, but there have been quite a few times a team has come back from a 3-1 deficit. I think the Wild did it in back-to-back series a few years ago.

Fan /fæn/ –noun
An enthusiastic devotee, follower, or admirer of a sport, pastime, celebrity, etc.

The above definition says nothing of winning or losing.

I'm a Wings fan. Period. I was born and raised in Michigan, and if you figure out a way to undo that, maybe you'll find a way to lessen my loyalty to the Wings. I don't give up on them, even if they were give up on themselves.

But when they cut it and the crowd finishes it, like they did tonight, it counts for more! :D

You know...I am nervous, BUT, here is a crazy list of the reasons I think the Wings COULD (but I'm done being confident, realistically the series is still a serious uphill and unlikely battle) comeback:

1) The parity of the league means no team is truly "out of it" anymore. Thus, it is more likely for a team to come back from 3-0. Many teams come back from 3-1, so what's one extra game in the new NHL?

2) This is the Wings. They'll need to win gritty and win pretty, and they're capable of both. They got a huge 7-1 win tonight but they're probably going to have a win a tight 3-2 or 2-1 game, too, which they can.

3) The reffing is still the key to the series. Despite some sloppy playing and terrible calls, they still only missed out on winning each game by one goal. They've basically taken everything the world can throw at them and are still kicking.

4) San Jose may (MAY) have peaked...they've been riding high since the beginning and appear to have given us everything they have. Whereas we know the Wings have a whole other level. The hope is that San Jose can't match that upper level.


So...realistically I'm not getting optimistic or cocky. But if we take it one game at a time, just one game at a time, it's absolutely a possibility.

But for now, just focus on each game and please win Saturday, Wings.

I wonder who we are playing next round

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

I dare say they've given me hope. I'm trying to stay grounded, because superstitious me thinks my overconfidence led to the current predicament, haha. But boy they put on a clinic tonight. I hope they don't take their foot off the accelerator.

One game at a time, one game at a time. Move on from this game, if the Wings can put together a win on Saturday it's suddenly 3-2, which looks totally different than 3-0, and then the hope starts to build...

Logically, I think they have a shot at this. In the new NHL it's much more likely for a team to come back, and considering that the Wings haven't been really outplayed for more than a few periods I find it hard to believe that it's absolutely impossible for the Wings to win the next 3 games.

Go Wings!

It's going to require a lot of LUCK. Luck with injuries, refs, and breaks.

Win or lose, I will be happy if the Red Wings give a full effort every game.

LETS GO RED WINGS!
