Phoenix will not go down without a fight. Normally I would say just take one game at the opposing arena, but since half of Jobbing.com arena will be cheering for the Wings, it would be best if the Wings can just win the next two games. The Wings need as much rest as possible between series, and I just don't see Phoenix hanging with the Wings 5 on 5.


Phoenix has to win 4 of the next 5 to advance. That just is not going to happen. It's not impossible. Pittsburgh did it against us in '09 but Phoenix is not in the same league as Pittsburgh was.

We need to end this as quickly as possible and rest up for San Jose (if San Jose doesn't choke again and they are already showing signs of that) or Nashville/Aneheim.
Do or do not. There is no try

I agree we SHOULD win this, and the sooner the better, but I still think its too early to start looking to next round. Phoenix came dangerously close to tying it yesterday in a game that felt like the Wings absolutely dominated. I'll be surprised (but thrilled) if they don't get at least one game.

Ref controversy aside, the Wings NEED to stop taking so many penalties. A lot of those were questionable yesterday, but a lot of them weren't, and the refs have already made it clear they will make a call if given the chance. 5 on 5 is how we'll win this series I think.

LA in 01 we lost Stevie and Shanny and it was game over. We haven't sustained any injuries in 2 games, Phoenix cant play with Detroit 5on5. Avoid penalties, get decent goal tending and finish Phoenix off as quick as possible.

Also Colorado in '99. I've never been so pissed at a Wings cup run since then. I'm still not quite sure what happened there.

The bottom line is the Wings need to put the stranglehold on the Coyotes tomorrow night.

No I'm just saying that's where the discussion is about that one. We have some pretty good responses in that thread. You should join in.

When a reporter asked coach Mike Babcock if Franzen was kept out of practice as a precaution, Babcock replied, “should I do what happened to him to you and see if you’re here today?”

I think we should be prepared for a lot of bad ref calls tomorrow. The way the refs seem to be calling games is to make them as exciting as possible. The NHL doesn't want sweeps in series. So, just like the Rangers got today, I'd expect a 5 on 3 tomorrow against us and I'd expect 6-7 penalties called on us in the game.

This is how the refs call things now. When one team is up big, the calls all start going the other way. Just my opinion.
U GUYS ARE FUKIN ANYOING IM GONNA COME DOWN THERE AND KILL ALL YALL THE ONLY THING THAT SAVED UR TEAM WAS OSGOOD AND OSSGOOD SUKS 2 JUST LIKE UR WHOLE FUKIN TEAM I HOPE U HEARD THIS AND THINK CAUSE ALL I GOT TO SAY TO U IS UR A BUNCH OF FUKIN IDIOTS BARONS A HOOSER CUSE HE WENT TO UR TEAM AND I HOPE U GUYS SHOULD SEND UR TEAM TO ANOTHER CITY CAUSE U GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF FUKIN WHINERS GO CANUCKS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! --- A canucks fan on stltoday.com

The Wings have gotten a 5 on 3 against in now 7 straight playoff games or something like that. I'd be surprised if they DIDN'T have to kill off a 5 on 3 tomorrow. But there's still hope in that they can kill it off.

The Yotes themselves are probably echoing similar sentiments.

But in any case you can just reply with, 'The Coyotes would like to reveal their new owner. His name is Pavel Datsyuk.'

(Read that somewhere earlier today but I forget where)

Well thanks! Although, I have to admit I stole it off the HF Boards theme.

And just a minor correction: It's Mabuhay. It's mean "Long live" in Pilipino language. So, Long Live the Red Wings!
