He may have tapped him on the stick between the hands. It was a tap definitely not a slash and Frolick actually maintained control of the puck and shot it well after the tap. Terrible call. Bad officiating affects the outcome of way too mamny games in the NHL.

I seriously dreamt about getting eliminated ALL NIGHT LONG. Granted, we were playing the Rangers for some reason, but it did not make for a restful night by any means. I woke up stressed with a pounding headache. Red Wings, life would be so much easier if I could quit you...

This one hit me right in the feels, folks.

Dunno what is more frustrating.To watch our young D men learning the hard way or refs calls by the book after letting them play the Playoffs style.

Some adjustments need to be be made for game 7.Our top 6 doesn't look good at all lately.

Tuzzi should come in. Hawks won't push him around for 1 second.

Look at the bright side, we are 2-0 in elimination games this year and 1-0 in game sevens.

We just lost two elimination games in a row were 2-2

It was not an elimination game for the Wings, only for the Blackhawks.

No we didn't. What he was reffering to was when we were facing elimination, with our backs against the walls we seem to play much harder. That being said, I really hope we win tomorrow, but I have a bad feeling about game 7 at the madhouse.

Even if they lose - which is very likely odds are against them right now - the team did far better than I expected them to do. Having that said, choking away a 3:1 could shatter their confidence for a long time, I mean this team would be the laughing stock of the NHL. I really hope, the Wings are using it as a motivation and give everything they have left in the tank in game 7, if they fail so be it but at least go down fighting.

Man how cool would it be, if an awesome fan would throw an octopi on the ice IN windycity ˆˆ

My cable is getting cancelled today. IF, and that's a big IF my heart can handle what the refs have in store for us in game 7 and I actually watch it, I'll have to do it on my Xbox. I'm still pissed this morning and the NHL can still go f*** itself. If the Wings lose legitimately in game 7, then I'll renew my cable when hockey starts up again and get Gamecentre. But if it's like game 6 again and the Wings are never even given a chance cause of some of the worst officiating I've ever seen, I will renew neither. I know being an NHL ref is a hard job, but they're PAID professionals and they should act as such. Last night, they did not. I refuse to give TV broadcasters and the NHL what little money I have.

You'll be back. ;)

I consider it an elimination game either way not do or die but still with elimination on the line. So you think last year LA didn't play a single elimination game?

no they did not. they eliminated teams, but they never once faced elimination, or had their backs against the wall.

I still think your record with elimination on the line is a telling stat I always keep track of it during the playoffs.... I just won't call it elimination games anymore I thought everyone considered it the same

CBC HNIC Game 6 intro (for those of us scrubs who are stuck watching NBC). I am amazed that there is all this additional footage from other camera angles for some of these plays and play reactions on the bench. Does NBC just throw them in the garbage? Or do they actually both have their own cameras/cameramen and don't share footage?

WTF, Hawks shenanigans pregame throwing pucks into our nets?

• Along with Jamal Mayers getting fined a half day's pay ($1,600) for shooting pucks into Detroit's net before Game 5, the Chicago Blackhawks were also docked $10,000. Because that'll teach 'em! [@DarrenDreger]

Since 2008 the Red Wings have been considerably worse at closing out series. What stats do you have on that? Just curious...

What's the alternative? An ice cold white?

Colin was cold when he came in and did a good job. Lashoff has the same experience as Smith, but bigger. Babs is caught between a rock and a hard spot. The forwards need to be aware when Smith is on the ice and cover for him.

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 :)

For sure.

I wish the sequence of wins was different in this series. Then if we lost game 7, we could still save face and not feel like we choked. Instead, if we lose tomorrow, it's a choke of sorts.

At this point, either team that loses tomorrow will be considered chokers.

Not sure if you're talking about the same thing, but before we played Dallas in 2008, the Wings had won 12 straight games when the "other" team was facing elimination. That's an NHL record from what I remember. An amazing stat really.

Since that Dallas series in 2008, we're 8-10, when the other team is facing elimination. Obviously, a less effective record, but probably more realistic across the board. The team before this generation's Wings was ridiculously good at putting someone away.

I believe I just heard on Fox Deetroit that the Wings have won seven semi-finals games (?) and the Hawks, one. Did I hear that right? Anybody?

Yea, that answers my question. Thanks.

My entire hockey watching career has involved those killer Wings. Now it's a little strange to see them struggling. On the bright side, 8 series wins!
