Still trying to figure out why Babcock switched the lines. If it aint' broke, don't fix it.

Oh man! 2-0? I'm at work... Are they playing that bad? :(


Yes. Yes, they are. Aside from the fourth line, they all suck so far.

Haven't you learned anything? They were losing in every game that they won this series, geez, lets save this type of post until about 1:00 left in the third if they haven't gotten better...

...I am a bit upset Modano isn't in, but he didn't bring much more that Draper does, I believe Draper is a faster skater and better defensively though, so....

...again, split up ZDH, it hasn't work all series, why bring it back in game 7?

They never trailed in game 4.

Zetterberg with the worst play of his career. Geez.

Talk about not being switched on, Wings were woeful that period.

After all of that...

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

Remember that year Z won the Conn Smythe? After that turnover, if Babcock is the coach I believe he is, playing with Cleary and hopefully Bertuzzi, we will see that Henrik Zetterberg in the 2nd and 3rd periods.

I have not expected us to win this series after we went down 3-0. Each game that went by I would say "Ah...I think thats it this time". However, each time the Wings have surprised us all and came back to win. Well, Im thinking it again...

Lets just enjoy the hockey game, see what happens, hope for the best and see what the Wings can do this time.

If the Wings lose, their demise will be their face-off percentage. If you can't win a single face-off in your defensive zone, you WILL NOT get control, and San Jose has taken advantage of that. This problem needs to be addressed this offseason, win or lose today.

Wings have done this to me a lot - they play a game where they look unbeatable an dominant (last Tuesday, game 4 against Sharks last year, game 5 against the Pens in 09 and against the Ducks in 07) and then immediately follow it up with a complete dud of a game. What the hell? Did they forget what they did the previous game? Do they think that was enough? Did they blow their nut?

It's not over, but it is playing out exactly as I feared it would so far, after a dominating game previously where they looked unbeatable, they follow it up with a sleep walk.

Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

Its a shame the wings didnt lock up the 2nd seed when they had it. I think this series would be a lot different if they have home ice advantage.

PEOPLE!!! Grab a beer, sit down and watch as the Wings come back again from what looks to be a hopeless set of circumstances.


Hopefully, but you can only flirt with things like that so much.

Can't spot them goals like this every game and win.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Kronwall had a good chance on the 2nd PP. Datsyuk had one on the backhand, too.

If Modano was playing, it'd be 2-2 right now.

And if Osgood was playing, it'd be 0-0.


Please stop this nonsense. Modano was useless. If Osgood had played in this series we almost certainly would have been swept.

WE will know immediately at the beginning of the 2nd whether or not this team has had an attitude adjustment here in the 1st intermission.
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.

They just interviewed Lidstrom and he said, "I don't think we're coming back".

So I agree with you. It's certainly over.


Can you imagine the outrage? Classic.

Pierre: Nick, you guys are down 2-0, and look terrible. What has to change to make you guys successful?
Nick: Well, I don't think anything we do is going to change anything. I think this game is over. Babs was looking into how to forfeit, so we don't have to play the last 40.

Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe.

Yeah, why change a single thing from last game?

It's reallyf****** difficult to win 4 straight.

SJ has home ice and got the all so important first goal to get the crowd roaring. It will take a monumental effort to slow SJ down right now. Can the Wings do it? Yes. No doubt they can. But I for one will not be disappointed in this team and call for the heads of coaches and players if they don't.
Remember they're without Franzen, they're without Bertuzzi now, and Datsyuk is banged up. I believe they're going to give they're very best and we can all just hope it's enough.
