I've been to about 50 or so games at the Joe, give or take 10 either way, and I ended up going to tonight's game. Honestly, after we killed the 5-on-3, the Joe was louder than I've ever heard it. In addition to that, after Bertuzzi's fight, instead of the "LET'S GO RED WINGS (clap clap, clapclapclap)" chant that one might usually hear at the Joe, it was "TOOD BERTUZZI (clap clap, clapclapclap)". I've honestly never heard our entire crowd chant any one single player's name (other than the familiar "OZ-ZIE!" or "JIM-MY!" repeated ad nauseam) prior to tonight. It was magic.

I'm jealous of you going, although glad you got to see the Wings show up, but none of these..

Ste-vie? Ste-vie?

Vla-ddie? Vla-ddie?

Luuuuuuuuc?

Jim-my? Jim-my?

.. ring a bell? o.O

That's only a very limited few.

I only started actually being able to go to games within the last 5 years, even though I've watched them on TV for the last 15.

only thing i didnt like was NO FIRE after we scored... disappointing. i guess with the rising gas prices... haha but really great game, fought off the adversity early and took over and won it. just like you need to do to be playing in June. GO WINGS


Yeah, I was disappointed with the lack of fire. It's been replaced by red smoke. It seems like they only do the fire every other year? They had it in 08, don't think they did in 09, but it was back last year.

I was at Game 5 of the finals both in '08 and '09. I know they did the fire in '08 and I want to say they had it in '09 as well, but I could be wrong.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

What was the Shane Doan chant the crowd had going?


We were saying "shane doan sucks." Not too creative, but it gets the point across.

Watching on the fly final is painful... Homlstrom embellished the hook in the second. Forget the fact of Franzens laser that took the lead. Coyotes couldn't get the puck to their snipers on the PP. Christ Mike Johnson is a massive tool to me right now. All they would do is acknowledge that Pav is a great defensive player. Claimed Babs was begging for calls after the game. Makes me wonder if they even saw the first period.

"It was like I planned before the game throw everything at the net and try to jam it," Datsyuk said. "Good things happen when you shoot a lot. After we scored once, we took control."

From The Detroit News: http://detnews.com/a...1#ixzz1JW3p0ENC

I do believe this is the main reason why the Wings won the game. Very little cutesy passing in the offensive zone. JUST SHOOT AT THE DAMN NET. And jamming and screening doesn't hurt either. :)

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

My only beef is the 2nd and third line. Neither seem to be doing that great. I'd put Cleary up with Filppula and Hudler and then drop Miller down with Abdelkader and Bert.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

After his fight in game 1, the crowd was chanting Dat-syuk the entire five minutes he was in the box. :D

Home ice advantage has come back I'd say. Just 1 game, but that was an "old barn" style feel to it in there last night. One of the best crowds I have ever heard at a game in all the years I have gone and I have seen a Cup clincher in '02 and Lemieux-Mac part 2. Just great stuff Hockeytown! Posted Image

The Wings showed a lot last night, and despite their issues during the regular season, you couldn't tell that they even had any. That was just a great, solid hockey game. I'd like 15 more.

Awesome pictures! Any chance you can post the Franzen celebration and Datsyuk celebration pictures in a larger, more wallpapery size? If not, no problem. Cool pics either way!
