Lets face it, there have been 3 times in HISTORY that a team has came back from a 3-0 deficit. (Some people say 4 teams have come back)

The Following Teams Did It:
Toronto Maples Leafs vs Detroit (1942)
New York Islanders vs. Pittsburgh (1975)
Philadelphia Flyers vs Boston (2010)

The real question is...Do the wings have what it takes to make history?

My Answer Is Yes.

Here are some things that need to happen for us to win this series:
  • The Team Needs To Wake up
  • 3rd and 4th Line Scoring
  • Improved Penalty Kill
  • Momentum Shifting Moments
  • LOCKDOWN Defense
  • Intimidation
  • Coaches need to prepare the players better
  • Confuse the other team
  • OUTWORK the opposition

If we can get the breaks and take this step by step, a miracle can occur.
We will need the inspiration from someone to find a way to get ourselves out of this hole.
The only way this can happen is if the Wings play to the ability we've seen. They need absolutely flawless hockey from this point out.

My Predictions:
Game 4: Wings 3-1
Game 5: Wings 2-1[OT]
Game 6: Wings 3-0
Game 7: Wings 4-3[OT]

BELIEVE

I try to be optimistic for Detroit but right now I find it really hard to not be negative. I see the Wings getting one win maybe but after that is over.

Honestly, after Game 4 last year I really believed we could do it. Then we blew a lead and lost another 1 goal game in Game 5. They might win Game 4 again, but that's it.

If the Wings win Game 4, and then SJ's plane crashes on the way to Game 5 and the Sharks were forced to use their AHL team, the Wings still wouldn't win this series. There is no desire to win right now and they proved it in OT last night. If you don't score on a PP in OT (or right after it) you don't win.

if there is a team that could choke that badly wouldnt it be the sharks

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

I absolutely believe we can win this series, but only if one thing changes: puck luck. It's funny how important a concept as abstract as that becomes during the playoffs.

With bounces going our way, the OT goal in game 1 never happens. With pucks bouncing our way, the first goal from tonight likely doesn't happen and the second goal definitely doesn't happen. When teams are as good as these two are, it comes down to something more intangible than working harder on the forecheck or racing to the corners for loose pucks. Yes, those things are absolutely critical but I feel that the Wings have been doing that in this series already. With a little luck, this series would be 2-1 Detroit at the worst. I guess I've just resigned myself to not being angry, but instead just hoping against hope that the hockey gods smile upon us and that a minor miracle is in the works.

THIS.

However, the Wings are done. I was at the game tonight, and they played a good game, and it still wasn't enough. I thought that Kronner hit on Heatley could be the series turning point, but unfortunately it turned back in a hurry. These Sharks are good/lucky.

We might win game five. We won't win any more than that.


Um ... I don't understand. How is this possible?

Anyhow, I wonder if there is no hunger in winning any more cups for this group of veterans. Been there, done that. Why kill yourself, it's not as if you get a whole lot of money. No desire, no hunger, let's just go for 2 rounds, please some of the fans and then get a nice long break till next season.

Atleast we know who the homers are. Wings might have deserved to win tonight, but they didn't. No way they win 4 in a row. Trust me i want it as bad as anyone, but it's not gonna happen.

Na they wont win a game. They had several opportunities to win tonights game and choked. Series over. If they won tonight i would have a totally different outlook but they had the game handed over to them in OT with a PP and failed.

No they're going to win by a blowout in game 4... Franzen may have 5 goals in that game. Then they're done. Seriously Mccrimmon has to go.
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
