I actually can't watch any game from that series, even the ones we won, because I know how it all ends. I hate knowing it was all in vain.

No way.

The 5-0 dismantling in game 5 will always be amazing. The WHOLE crowd singing and chanting like they were at a soccer game.


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

I was at game 5. It was a really good memory. But alas, it was tarnished by game 7.

The worst part for me was that I was back at school for game 7 and one of my good friends is a Pens fan and I made the mistake of watching the game with him and another Detroit fan. After Lidstrom's last shot, I collapsed on the couch in a haze. My Detroit buddy turns off the tv, and my Pens fan friend is yelling to get the feed back on. It was a complete mess of emotions. I eventually made my friend turn it back on for him because I would be devastated if I couldn't see my team win. But that was one of the hardest things to do.

Edit: and I can't believe how many people didn't watch the game. Game seven, SCF finals at home?? I would have the game on even if my child was being born in the same room.

What hurts about the loss isn't the loss, its how it happened. The Wings were clearly the more talented team, even Pens fans will admit to that, but we had tons of injuries, the instigator/suspension with Malkin thing, the 6 guys on the ice thing, Talbot slashing Datsyuk's broken foot, the Crosby taking cheap shots at Z, pretty much the whole Pens team gooning it up in Game 5, Talbot is their "hero" in Game 7. If the Pens had played a clean series and won because they were a better team or a more talented team, it would be easier. But losing to a team that acts like a bunch of dbags and watching Captain WhinyFace lift the Cup in the Joe, is what stings.

You're not wrong.

To this day, I've never seen the handshake line, or the cup raise from that game.

Call it sour grapes, whatever.

Me too. I still turn the channel, or turn away from the TV, when they show Cindy with the Cup.

I would expect Pens fans to do the same thing when they show Lidstrom raising the Cup on TV.

Same here. Saw Lidstrom's shot and when it didn't go in, the TV came off. I couldn't bear seeing the Cup raise or the handshake line.

i was there, even worse

I would have thrown up...like everywhere.

Probably the one time I will ever be completely disappointed in the Detroit Red Wings.

They pissed away the Stanley Cup.

I prefer to just keep it out of my head. I'm as over it as I can be but just being the kind of Wings Fan that I am I'll never fully get over it. I saw the whole thing becasue I felt that if I was at home and watching the game I should at least respect the Pens enough to watch their moment of glory I didn't want to be a sore loser. All the talk that led up to the series and that game I just don't even want to go back to it becasue it will bring back emotions that I'm trying to stay a way from. I'm just glad to see the Pens didn't go back to back Champs.

I actually stopped watching the game after Talbot made it 2-0. I knew it was over at that point. Unfortunately, I was right. To this day, I still have not watched the end of the 2nd, and the entire 3rd period. I have seen clips of FLeury's save on Lidstrom though. One of the worst feelings I have ever had. Glad I'm not alone.

I saved that for under my breath after the game was over. I stood in silent hope for the final minute of play, and yelled when Nick was wide open and took the final shot. When Fleury stopped it, I simply sat back down, almost in a daze knowing my absolute worst sports fear had been realized - someone was about to skate the Stanley Cup on Joe Louis Arena ice and it wasn't the Red Wings.

I tried to forget as much as I could about that night, but the one thing that I still remember is how fast the third period went by. I can't recall ever watching such a quick period. Obviously the Wings being down 2-0 and then 2-1 played a role, but it all just came crashing down abruptly.

I want to see the Penguins next June. It's the only way to make things right.

I never saw game 7 and still have not bothered to even watch it nor will I ever for that matter. I just the other day sat down and watched the 95 finals on NHL Classic Series on the NHL Network and that was already painful enough, but I was young when that happened so it felt nice to see just what happened now that I have played enough for the last number of years.
