I'm sorry but that is absolute b*******. That's fine of you to have your opinion but you are completely wrong. That was by far the Wings' best game of the playoffs. They controlled the entire game up until making 3 mistakes within 7 minutes which unfortunately cost them the game.
Anyone would have thought by your spouting that the Wings had been swept. Let's not forget its 2-2 in a series that most ofd the media thought we wouldn't have a chance to even compete in. And Glendening has been huge. That 4th line has been excellent. There's a reason why the Johnson line has been shut down in this series, and you saw it right there in game 4. Mrazek has been superb, aside from game 2. Datsyuk has looked lost?? Really. Aside from Glendening he's been our best player in this series. Were you even watching game 1?
Helm has been a non-factor? And how about you actually look at the fact that Glendening is a really good solid player instead of the fact that you think he looks better than you think he asctyually is because in your opinion, the rest of the team is s***? Well if the rest of the team is s***, then why aren't we outside of the playoffs looking in, or staring at an imminent defeat in the first round like so many predicted?
continue to share your opinion sir, and that is fine. But when you ignore the obvious and continue to bash the team that we all know and love, then i will disagree with you. Just because we don't ice a lineup made of all stars anymore and future hall of famers, doesn't mean we can't sit here and respect the effort and hard work this team has put in to make it this far.
I was talking about Games 2-4 for Datsyuk. And if you think Detroit controlled the game after the 2nd goal they scored you were watching a completely different game. I saw a Tampa team on full court press taking shots with reckless abandon on Mrazek. Detroit was on its heels for almost half the game, they went into curse control and that's why they lost.
But I will agree with one thing: Mrazek has pretty much run Howard out of town so far. He has been why this series is 2-2 not 4-0. If the Wings had any chance at the cup he would be the only choice for Conn Symthe.
