I'd rather have a retired Boyd Devereaux than a Hudler.

I am so proud of this team the last two games. So much heart was displayed by the Wings tonight. It is moments like these that make me really proud of the team and organization. Thanks for reminding to never give up Wings! Onto game 6 now.
Playoff Time. Let's Go Red Wings!!!!

I finished the game shaking like a leaf and with eyes filled with tears. I cannot find the words to say how proud I am of the guys and their never-say-die attitude tonight. What a game! And for all those who ever thought that Pasha didn't know how to step up and play in the clutch, this year's performance should shut them up once and for all time.

Congrats, boys...I do believe.

Go team. Never say die.

You can't blame anyone for thinking that. But holy s***, what a turn around. Incredible.


Sure you can. There are "fans" who, when things get rough, turn to giving up and making cutting remarks toward the team rather than keeping up hope. When the team wins, they of course flip-flop again, and so they prove that they cannot stay steadfast in either the hopeful or hopeless ends of the arena of fandom. Like I've said many times, I think the team deserves far better.

Does that go for fans of all teams, or just the teams you support? Is a Lions fan who thinks they'll lose every game not a fan in your eyes? Once again you show that you do no understand the difference between hope and expectation.

I hope that this post doesn't get deleted, but I expect that it will.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I really wish I could hate Dats, but he's such an amazing player that plays with class that I can't do it. I can still hate you guys for having him on your team though. :) Don't get me wrong though, I am pretty disappointed with the game. I felt my team controlled the majority of the play...for the first 41 minutes anyway. Wings PK was huge tonight. Well done by your boys. See you guys in game 6.

You know, you could have had him. But you and how many other teams passed him up through six rounds of the draft. Now, as they said in "O Brother, Where Art Thou?", "That's your misfortune."

Me, I worship the ice that man skates on. :wub:

The sign in the Wings dressing room says: "to whom much is given, much is expected."
Quit talking about the fans who were pissed after Game 3. This team showed NOTHING up to that point - lucky bounces and s***ty refereeing aside. There was NO passion. NO competing. And NO desperation, which was shocking considering the makeup of this team is likely going to be much different next season.
And this is HOCKEYTOWN. Just making the playoffs or winning a round is FAILURE. Nothing short of a Cup and the season will always be considered a failure. Personally, that's what makes this team/organization so special to me. While other fans shrug and say "oh well, we at least MADE the playoffs...." the Wings expectations are always, and rightfully so, much higher. Our awesome owner Mr Illitch is not a man to smile and say, "hey, great season guys, even if we lost in Round 1."

Moving forward, there's much work left to do. The Wings are not a team the NHL cares about or a team that means much to the NHL when they win. It doesn't look good to see such dominance in this type of business. The refs, dare I say it, have let them "play" the past 2 games and that's been the difference. I'm still surprised they caller ORDINARY JOE THORTON for his dive, when they've been letting them get away with that s*** ALL YEAR!!! The Sharks, the Nucks, the Preds ... THESE are who the NHL wants to advance. So I hope we build on this win, and do even more next game, as our special teams are killing us - and we are not gonna see such calls if/when we get to a game 7. The Wings need to get back to that us vs. the world mentality that has been lacking.

Just a bit better. Just a bit more hustle. Just a little quicker in those battles and we will soon get to the semis and 8 wins from OUR trophy!!!


GO WINGS!!!!

I would venture to say that Ryan Clowe might choose his words a little more carefully next time when it comes to who he calls out. Nik Kronwall let him know that you should always be careful what you wish for.

I had posted after game 3 that this one goal San Jose s**t had to turn around at some point.

Tonight however completely shocked me! We had no will, no fight, no determination through the first 2 periods.

WAY TO GO JIMMY FOR HOLDING US IN THERE!!!!

If we can just play the way we did in the 3rd, I think we have a real shot at this series and the cup. We demonstrated that when we want to impose our will on another team, that there is NO ONE BETTER THAN US!

Just play that way all the time.

i have to listen to most of these games on the radio at work...stupid night shift. <_<

anyway, amazing game. i was fist-pumping the air while listening to the game-winning goal...i'm sure people thought i was a little weird. just a few picks from the GDT.

Games like this are what alcohol is for.

Anyone see the irony from the last few years when we lost games when we dominated and outshot teams like Calgary?


i posted about this in the "Howard..." thread -- i feel like that's happened to the wings so many times, where they've outshot the opponent by like twenty shots, and yet their goalie has a .930 save percentage and ours has a .840 save percentage. it's nice to be on the other side of that s*** for once.


unreal win, i am veryf****** impressed and eating a plate of crow


yeah, i never want to be the slap-happy fan that always sees the bright side only to get crushed, but i think a LOT of us felt like we were out of it after that early third-period goal to make it 3-1 sharks. plus, they were talking about how neimi gives up goals in the first, less in the second, and almost none in the third. plus, there was always the fear of one bad PK, which has plagued us in these playoffs. to jimmy's credit, and to our PK's credit, and to the whole team's credit, they kept fighting even when a lot of us had given up on them.

Zetterberg's dive was amazing and now we have a f***in' series. Great effort in the third.


i'm wondering if you meant "drive" and not "dive." i didn't get to watch the game; had to listen on the radio at work. but, if you meant "dive," i'm curious what you're talking about. if you meant "drive," i think i know what you're saying. :)
