Sick game winning OT goal, Sick series winning Game 7 goal, not being a complete jackass everytime he touches the puck, providing offensive contribution other than letting the puck touch his body on the way into the goal...
Cleary is a scapegoat for a reason. He sucks.
Yet, Dan Cleary has more points than Val Filppula in the playoffs. Filppula has been completely invisible besides two plays against Anaheim. Not sure the goal in Game 7 really qualifies as sick either. Z made the play entirely and Fil threw a backhander on net.
I think the Red Wings will definitely be better today. Question still remains is their high-end game enough to overcome Chicago's skill and depth? This is practically a must-win because winning four of five otherwise will be near impossible against the Hawks.
Abby was great again. The list of positives ends there besides Jimmy.
I am not going to miss Chicago at all next season. Their fans, Chelsea Dagger and Eddie O fan boy broadcasting is beyond obnoxious. Just an annoying little brother that cares more about chanting Detroit Sucks than cheering their own team.
Hope the Wings come out with a much better effort on Saturday.
There's no point in playing White. He's a defensive liability too and has no future here. Smith is struggling badly, but it's a learning experience for him. Let the kids continue to develop in pressure situations.
