I'm really happy for this guy:

Brunner!!! Hell of a game for him last night! He was flying, carrying the puck, and making smart good plays. Looked very confident. Love our third line! Just wish Tatar could be put in somewhere

it was absolute 'holly s***' game at honda last night!

terrific red wings crowd, countless 'lets go red wings' and 'refs you suck' chants - we lost our voices. :D

I saw at least two octopis thrown on the ice...

 

the last 10 minutes of 3rd, it was heart pounding and hand trembling that didn't stop during 3rd intermission.

 

I was jumping like crazy when Gus scored this beauty!!

 

GO WINGS (in 5)!!

Howard has to be better if we wanna win this series. The defense is going to give up those chances, and some of those goals were soft even if the defense did leave him out to dry. Hes a 5mil goalie, and a huge part of the team. Time to show it.

Agreed. He really impressed me last night.
 
Gotta wonder - what happens if he lifts that puck behind the net and scores lacrosse-style? We probably win, blow-out-style.

I said it in the GDT earlier tonight: Nyquist is hungry.

 

Tears up the AHL, then struggles to light the lamp on The BIg Stage. Can't imagine it's been sitting well with him - which makes this goal that much sweeter.

Honestly if he struggled as a first time NHLer then so did Datsyuk.

Datsyuk had 14 points in his first 40 games,  Nyquist had 13 in his first 40 games. Datsyuk was 23 btw for all of those games, Nyquist was 22 for half of them. People that wrote off Nyquist because he didn't put up Calder numbers needs to realize he wasn't playing 16 minutes a game like Zetterberg did his rookie year. Nyquist is producing for the minutes he's playing, if we played him as much as Rangers play Hagelin he would be just as effective. Nyquist played 8 minutes and 45 seconds last night. I mean come on.

IMO if Jimmy stops that Getzlaf goal the Wings would have won 4-1 or 4-2, the Ducks got so much energy from that goal and without it I don't think they would have even come close to knotting it up. Oh well they won in the end so no harm done.

I'm hoping Jimmy can shrug it off and come out strong next game, he usually plays quite well after a rough game.

 

Also can't believe some people wanted Nyquist or Brunner to sit in favor of Bert, that would have been a massive mistake both of them had great games.

Ya I know that the lacrosse move didn't work, but him attempting that is a sign. Shows he feels confident and isn't playing timid or basic

It's true.

 

He was dumb for even attempting the Michigan move during a playoff game. I cringe when I see players try it during the regular season. During the playoffs, I could just see Babcock cringing hard. Showing confidence? Maybe, but in reality, it was dumb to even attempt. Just dish the puck and get it moving.

 

**edit** for the uneducated: this is why it's the "Michigan move" and certainly never should be called the "Crosby"

Dunno if I'd call him dumb for trying it. Our team could use a little moxy.

my favorite part about the gw goal (besides that it was the gw goal) is that it was #10 for the lame ducks who got burned by flip's excellent toe drag delay move before he dished it to gus. i'm gonna focus on how well gus and brunner played rather than the breakdowns that led to the ducks getting back in the game.
