Can't wait to see Babs' reaction.


He's not whining as much as you guys are doing.

I don't love or hate Abby.

I just don't want him to play for a while after that screwup, especially since I can envision better line combos overall where he wouldn't be missed. And I don't think he's outplayed Eaves or Miller.

It really doesn't matter what you suspect or not. This isn't a detective mystery.


Ok, I can respect this and I understand your reasoning. I've always had a soft spot for him, thanks for clarifying your perspective.

I think i'm still a little hot from the OT...

Here's how they win the next game:
  • Watch Game Four of last years playoffs against San Jose
  • More Shots
  • More Puck Possession
  • More Forechecking

That game was jokes.

Team played terrible. If we bow out in this round something needs to be done.

This is a real game where everyone is supposed to play TO THE BEST OF THEIR ABILITY. Meanwhile, the diver does NOT trust his own talent and creativity enough to play by the rules. It sickens me, and it pisses me off that the refs will not acknowledge what's actually happening out there. Did you see the bearded wonder sitting on the bench, laughing while he rubbed his chin?


The problem is that even when the Wings try to sell a call, nothing happens. Anyone remember Zetterberg getting clipped with a high stick in the first, throwing his head back and reaching for his face, but not getting a call? Or Helm getting nicked and laying out while on a rush a few minutes later? Neither was a call and both easily could have been. But rather than just putting the whistles away, the refs TAKE OVER in the final minutes. It's completely against the unwritten rules of the NHL ... let the players decide the game. Or if you're going to buy the bulls***, buy ALL of the bulls***. For some reason, San Jose's acting jobs get more respect.

Wow, seems not much changes around here. Team loses a game and the only possible excuse is officiating. If this is true, I would suggest the wings learn to flop better. Clearly that is the key to winning a series against the sharks.....LOL

To the rest who saw a fairly tight game, lets see what happens game 2, have a feeling the wings players are going to shake off the rust and come out firing. Have a feeling this is going to be a much tighter series then last year, wouldn't be surprised with low scoring and 7 games. Good luck guy's!

What I'm saying you can't sit back with a 1-0 lead for 2 and 1/2 periods. Niemi isn't that great a goalie, we will have to get more than one damn goal; that said I think they will come out play with
some attitude next game. I hope anyway. See you all Sunday.

Really the only reason we're even debating what Abby did or the high-sticking call is because Howie stood on his head against a barrage of shots.

That has to continue.
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

We're all hot from the OT, but I don't expect the Wings to win when it goes to overtime.

We haven't been a good OT team for a long time.

Starting to look like the Dave Lewis days, when we always lost in OT.

It can't be Homer - refs won't call anything short of decapitation for him.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Yep. Sharks are still a bunch of divers. It's disgraceful.

As soon as I saw the blantant trip on Helm right in front of the refs, I knew Detroit were going to have an uphill battle against the refs. Sure enough. Refs decided that game. Wings played the perfect road game defensively and Howard played like the best goalie in the entire playoffs. If the game was called fairly, Wings would be up 1-0 right now.

Is that really the best comeback you could muster? You ARE a total pessimist. You DID say that the Wings had little or no chance. What is it that you're up in arms about?

OK, you and Buckeye, enough, please.
