I believe the Wings lost two extremely close games to a team that was playing to the best of their abilities while the Wings were playing near the bottom of theirs. I believe that the long break between series will become an advantage as this series goes deeper and the amount of overtime games played and reliance SJ puts on their top 9 forwards will wear their team down. I also believe, despite the shot totals, the Wings have made Niemi look better than he has played by shooting mostly from the perimeter and giving him more 1 and dones than they give most goalies. I believe tonight you will all see a faster, more determined Wings team that will generate traffic, scoring chances and be the Wings team we're all used to

I thought the same thing. Wings were badly outplayed, yet somehow they managed to stay in the race, and lost both games due to fluke (1st game) and soft (2nd game) goals.

I believe that tonight we will see the Wings do what we know they can do.

I believe that they have the will, talent, and skill to overcome this adversity.

I believe that Pavel is going to deke Niemi out of his jockstrap.

time to win already :) Lidstrom needs to score from the blue line, so that Wings follow with 4 wins in a row :)

End thread.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

We've only lost 3 games. It's not over until the end of the 4th loss for which ever team that is. There is nothing wrong with believing the Wings can still do it.

Thanks Offsides

For those that are insistent on saying "I told you so" or being d**ks, do it in a different thread and don't spoil the mood, no matter how unrealistic the chances may be or how stupid you may think pom-pom cheerleading blind faith may be.

It ain't over yet.

I love 55fan's constant blind faith. At least she always puts a positive spin on everything around here.

Despite what I said above I do have to say it's pretty weird that just because of what Philly did last year it seems like every single time a team goes 3-0 now every one in the sports world acts as though there's a legitimate chance the trailing team can now make the come back. I'm not saying we shouldn't believe it can happen or cheer for it to happen. But let's keep some perspective here. Just start with one shift, build on that and try to win a period, then a game, and so on...

I was there. I believe...
The bounces will start going the Wings' way.
The linesmen will drop the puck without throwing someone out of the circle.

I believe the Sharks haven't won a 4th game yet, so there's no sense counting the Wings out quite yet. See how Vancouver feels about this subject, or Boston last year.

The linesmen will drop the puck without throwing someone out of the circle.


Now that's just crazy talk...
