If you look at the whole series, you've got to be pleased with how our team showed fight and heart after going down 0-3.
But if you look at this game, there are some serious questions. Yes, we lost Bertuzzi and Cleary but still:
1. Why did Babcock put Draper in and not keep Modano in the line up? Or Hudler instead of Modano?
2. What the hell was wrong with our pp - 0 for 4 ??!!
3. We out shot SJ 40-30 but still ended up on the wrong end of the score sheet.
4. Last shift of play, why wasn't Dats on the ice?
I honestly have no issues with Draper playing. I do not understand why Hudler was put back in the lineup for Game 6, then kept there for Game 7 after not doing anything in Game 6. He was the worst player out there tonight, constantly making the wrong play on offense.
The PP was awful -- some credit to San Jose for that, but for whatever reason, the PP was the one situation all game that Detroit wasn't just firing away. They were trying to get a perfect shot instead of just mucking it up in front of Rebounds McGee in net.
As for 4, I have no idea. Dats and Z had been out there for a minute, but ... it's the last 20 seconds of the godda*n season.
