I am curious to see how SJ would respond to a game 5 loss..They have been notorious chokers for a few years so I wonder if the pressure of a potential historical comeback would be enough to hurt their play. Lets hope we get a chance to see.

Hey lets just support our team til the end. Gotta think they'll win every game until they don't. Lets Go Wings

Where do you think you are? The hfboards? This is letsgowings.com. The majority of "fans" here don't support the team unless they are winning in dominating fashion.

How about they wings play game 5 like its nick Lidstroms last game and send him into the sunset with a win(aka: don't even think past game 5, which I think they did last year)

didn't we have a similar thread last year?

I think the win last night will spur them on more than the blow-out last year. You could see it in their body language when SJ tied it 3-3. It was a look of... Crap we need to do something here, and show we're the better team. Then for arguably the first time this series, all lines clicked and Helm finally showed up with what he can do. I think almost throwing game 4 away is going to give them a bigger kick than when they won game 4 incredibly easily

This is the right mindset. We should be supporting them until the final horn. If any team can come back it's the Wings.

I believe if our team plays like they did in game 4, especially towards the last 5 minutes of the period, we can win. If we do not win the series, I hope we can take it to game 7 at least.

GO WINGS!!!!

Yeah, I am glad the Wings won last night but I won't start believing comeback until the series is 3-2 and heading back to the JLA for game six.

I was thinking this, too. This was a good grind-out win that was probably better for the team than a blowout victory. This will make hem feel vindicated, since they felt they should have won Game 3 and probably Game 1, so now they know that CAN win.

Game 5 will be the tough one. If we can win game 5 we then have home ice for 6, and then going into game 7 we will have confidence and anything can happen.
For me, I just want to enjoy watching my favorite team play, even if its just one more game. If we tie the series, then ill get excited again :cool:

Now, all we need to do is win Game #5!! Then, the Sharks will be up against the wall because they do NOT want to come back here for Game #6 and be tied 3-3. Remember, we lost 2 games when we had late leads and lost in OT. If not for that, WE could be up 3-1!! At least the refs aren't officiating like they did last year's series!

As a lot of other people have said game 5 is the key. At this point we just need three wins, these boys can string that together. We will need lady luck on our side however. LGW

So we will have back to back playoffs with a team overcoming a 3-0 series lead. Wings begin by winning tonight, then Sunday in San Jose they will win an overtime thriller. Back to the Joe for game 6, Johan Franzen's hat trick leads Wings past sharks while tying the series. Game 7 is tied 3-3 in third when Dan Cleary breaks the tie and the Wings hold on and Win the game and the series!!!


Well, you're right for one game :)

What we need now is a dominating game. If we lose game 5, well, we all know what the big problem there is finding something else interesting on TV since the Wings won't be playing anymore.

If we win game 5, by a slight margin, we're still down, and probably wearing out faster than the Sharks at this point. Games 6, and 7 will be progressively more difficult. It's not so much about playing the odds of the series score, as much as it is gauging the amount of effort, and exhaustion that comes with making a slow comeback from such a series. Philly did it last year, but they didn't win the cup, and looked beat to death against chicago much of the time. Every game gets harder as a series goes on, and this applies to both teams, but it tends to seem to affect the team that is fighting for survival more. Game 5 will be harder.

This is why, in order to have a shot in this series, we obviously need to win game 5, but even more important is we need to blow them out in game five.

As proven in game 4, a 3 goal lead is not a safe lead. Unfortunate, because usually it would be.

We need to blow them out in game 5, if we want to push it to 7. Blow them out in game 5, put them on their heels, make them question what they have, and create a sense of urgency. Force them to play aggressive, and hopefully sloppy in game 6.

Their goaltending was solid again, but shakier. And now we're scoring on spin-o-rama's, and pond skip bounce style shots. Two "NO WAY DID THAT GO IN!!!" goals in one game, will perhaps inspire the wings to take the uncalculated shot, take the sloppy shot, and just shoot, shoot, shoot. We beat Niemi twice on very strange shots. OK, if he wants to play a perfect game against a perfect system, perhaps we just need to shoot ANYTHING at him. Cause it worked once, and if it works again.... Crush a goalies confidence, and he loses skill points :)

Game 5 really doesn't mean much (Aside from total elimination), because we still have two chances to lose it, versus 1 chance to win it, even if we do win it.

We need a blow out.

Something to make them realize, we are not done. We don't need to squeak by with a 3-2 style win, we need a good solid 5-1 type win.

So my call to all LGW fans is get TWO lucky rabbits foots, pray, meditate, and Sacrifice a goat (I don't care, steal one if you have to, we need all the gods covered).

Your analysis is correct, and I agree with what it would do to Niemi and the Sharks, but I worry about what a blow out would do to the Wings. They have a tendency to get over-confident and lazy after a big win. They don't come out inspired, and then they all of a sudden realize that it's the 3rd period and they have to put on a show to win. Sometimes it doesn't work.

We can't take that chance in these must-win games. I think a one or two goal win is good. Anything more than that might come back to bite us in the butt.

BTW: I can't find a goat, can I just stab some tofu?

I hope your faith is rewarded. I would hate for the Wings season to end now. It's not even my birthday yet. That said, we still have a long row to hoe if that's what we want to do.

Where do you think you are? The hfboards? This is letsgowings.com. The majority of "fans" here don't support the team unless they are winning in dominating fashion.


One thing I've never figured out about "fans" in general. I saw so much ripping and tearing of the Red Wings plus rampant sarcasm on this board last night, I could easily have been on the Sharks' board. Not just frustration. Real nasty, cutting, degrading remarks.

If all you can do is take their iffy play personally, as far as I'm concerned you're not a fan. You're a bandwagoner who's trying to look good via a team by riding on their "coat tails". And by god, if they don't play up to your standards, you're gonna lay it on. Well, f*** you, actually.

If you're a real fan, hell yes, you get frustrated. But at least some of that has to come from the fact that you hurt for the players if they're not doing well. There's GOT TO BE A REASON THEY'RE NOT PLAYING WELL. For instance if you watched Versus's feed of Franzen trying to make sharp turns then you gotta know he's hurting. HELLO? Meanwhile, I personally feel very bad for Cleary, and I would like nothing better than to see his game turn around. He.has.worked.his.ass.off.all.year. and for some reason he's pushing too hard.

I'm ashamed for some of you. You are letting your team down by your sophomoric, sarcastic commentary.

Meanwhile, we'll be leaving town for about three weeks, starting Monday morning. If by some sad and painful circumstance the Wings lose tomorrow night, there's no way in hell I'm coming back here, until it all blows over. There just doesn't seem to be enough of you left here who actually give a s*** about this glorious, historic and talented team.

GO, WINGS!! GO, JUMPIN' JIMMEH!!!
