Lets not pull a nucks and complain about s***. It's over and it's time to move on to game 7.

Id like to see a stronger effort from Smith and the first two lines Wednesday eve.

Detroit had all of the momentum in 2011 going into Game 7 at San Jose, too.

Sigh my confidence has reached obviously point zero right now. I know this is a young and learning team, but at the end of the day choking away a 3:1 lead might hinder them for a long time, especially against the stupid Blackhawks. We can blame the refs, league and whatever all day long, the fact doesn't change Wings have to play game 7 IN windy city. This team had two chances to close it out, absolutely sucked in game 5, sucked game 6 periood 3 and now we have to wait and see which team is going to show up on Thursday...

Agreed.

Our horrible pp/pk is what's giving the Hawks another chance at winning this series...These past 2 games out top 2 lines have been mostly AWOL as well.

Just frustrating is all.

Up 2-1 with a PP to close out the 2nd and they can't beat Crapford

inept finishing

I agree, but he should have challenged the shooter better.

Then again, we probably wouldn't have scored that 3rd goal if Howard stopped that shot. Just wasn't happening for the Wings tonight.

OK fine. But then I'm throwing in the fact that Howie had to be floored by that call, like most of the rest of the civilized nation. They're human. That includes Jimmy Howard. I say that the ref's collective, bulls*** calls and non-calls had a definite bearing on this game, including the mind-boggling penalty shot call. Sure he could have stopped it, but first he has to get over the call.

Howard did look pretty unraveled before the shot, but I agree that he's earned some slack.

Besides, he's not a robot. I'd be pretty pissed off after that call too.

Babcock is a great coach, but he's not the reason we beat Anaheim in game 7. Line combos are only as good as the players who either do or don't show up.

If Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Franzen don't show up for game 7, we won't win. Babcock can't turn s*** into candy.

The worst part about this series is that I was just happy to be in the 2nd round. Then we went up 3-1 and I was excited but still in the mindset of just happy to still be playing. Now that we are on the crusp of something really cool I'm starting to buy in and then we start shooting ourselves in the foot.

Its the ultimate blue balls from the only team I've ever loved.

I don't know about you guys but Wednesday is gonna be a hellva up hill battle and I'm keeping my expectations very low. I understand that the Blackhawks were the best team in the regular season for a reason but f*** now that we are that close WE NEED TO BEAT THEM!!

Sorry if this was incoherant, I've had a few adult beverages :)

Is it safe to say cleary outplayed Franzen and fil this series or are we not ready to admit that

They've all been extremely underwhelming. Cleary generally acts like an idiot with the puck except for a few plays in which the best compliment you can say about him is that he didn't f*** it up. Of his four goals, one is an empty net and two, the puck glazed off of him from another persons shot. He's got a few assists that were good plays but nothing extraordinary. He still does a lot of stupid s*** offensively with the puck (read: his 2-1 today in which Fil was wide open and he shots a shot that gets blocked)

Franzen has done nothing except score some really nice goals when Pav or Z do most of the work to set him up. Cleary has been better than him.

Fil has extraordinary puck control and battling ability that results in sustained scoring pressure and scoring chances. Shift by shift, there is no way you can say Cleary has outperformed Filppula.

I tried being positive here once, for a week or so, but got several complaints and wasn't good at it in general.

If I was going to ignore you Iwould've done it years ago. The comedy of your negativity makes me laugh sometimes.

I have the same license plate bracket :lol:

When the Wings went up on the series 3-1 - I began thinking about who I'd rather see Detroit face for the Western Conference finals...I never considered the Blackhawks were outta the playoff picture, but I figured we should be able to knock them out in games 5, or 6.

Now we gotta go back to their barn...

Uh... DUH!... You have "met" GMR before right? Or at least seen his/her work on here? Some people just don't really thrive on the whole positive outlook phenomenon and it works for them.

There's more to this. GMR at least has a twisted, likeable sense of humor. (Yeah, we're talking about you behind your back). Others on here are just Dips*** Debbie Downers, period. There IS a difference.

Personally I find GMR's "man love" for Lilja to be hilarious.

wow frolik admitted he lost the puck on purpose. No surprise there

From the replay, it didn't look on purpose at all.

So I guess he'd rather be known for embellishing than for stickhandling badly? :blink:

Damn ... another lost opportunity. I know we have to prepare for the NHL/refs pushing it to game 7 but did it have to be that obvious ... great penalty shot call on that little tap on the glove.

I like our chances ... wish we closed them out tonight but channel that Game 7 energy in Anaheim and we'll see the Hawks pout in their own home barn.

They had it in the palm of their hands and gave it away ... youth is hard to swallow ... I still think we can win, though ... so depressing ...

Understandable. He was a stud.

I'm gonna go watch Game of Thrones. And eat more ice cream. And cry some more.

Edit: are you seriously telling me there wasn't a new episode of GoT last night?!?! What is life right now I can't even

Trust me, if you haven't read the books, you did NOT want to see episode 9 last night, not after the Wings blew it like that. It would have been too much for you ;)

To do list for this week:

1.) Hide samurai sword so I'm not tempted to commit seppuku.

2.) Buy milk

3.) Egg Toews' house/car/mother

4.) Locate backup samurai sword in case seppuku is necessary.

5.) Buy more ice cream in case of seppuku!failure

6.) Cancel HBO

Why do I get the sinking feeling this is going to be a bad week? *sigh*

Wings need to find an answer against Bickell and that damn Hawks team. If they lose, nobody will talk about Boston Toronto anymore, the chokejob of letting a 3:1 series lead slip away will make headlines everywhere, damn.
