#2413753 WCSF Game 6 GDT- Blackhawks 4 @ Red Wings 3, - (Series tied 3-3)

hockey was so much better back in the day. 

i cant stand this league anymore, theyve destroyed it.

players diving, crying to the ref, embellishing, crying to the media, just to get the upper hand. its cheap and disgusting. 

then you got refs listening to them, calling games one ways. making wrong calls, calling clean hits dirty.

i dont think i will be watching too much longer its just not worth the aggravation. once in awhile but i think its just going to get worse.

 

i miss the good old days where players decided the game. where players were men not boys

Not only all that, but you get the star players hurt, when players like Bickell belt Datsyuk, or players like Erickson go after Toews.  How is it a good thing to have an instigator rule in hockey?  It's NOT!  BRASS, YOU CANNOT MANAGE THE LEAGUE BETTER THAN THE PLAYERS!!!!!!!!!!

 

So tired of watching this crap garbage NHL.

You can't leave a chicago player with all day to score with nobody near them in front of the net.  That penalty shot call was a disgrace by the league.  Absolute ridiculous.  Players earlier in this series were hauled down no call, that was a tap and it's a PS?  LOL

 

I seriously think this is why 10 people watch hockey, or at least it's a big reason why.  You get excited to watch your team, and the refs do nothing but sway the games.  One minute it's a call, the next it's not.

I wanna see Howard make it to round 3 for the first time.  He has earned it in my book.  And I've been a bit skeptical of him the last couple of years.  But this year he's showed a lot.  We've been asking for a goalie that can steal a game or two since Hasek.  And we got em now.  And Hasek had A TON more talent around him to help. 

We have completely blatent breakdowns and Howard has bailed us out countless times all series.  That's what you want.  Just like Quick.

Now babcock has more ammo to use with the wings to lecture them on why it's so important to play hard every shift and that it will take a perfect effort to eliminate the best team in the league.  I'm not worried...yet.  I trust in Babs.

Fair enough, but I just didn't see a great effort and desire to finish the series tonight from the Wings.  

 

I knew Chicago would bring it, but I expected a better fight in return.  

But in a weird way, don't you actually feel a oddly better that we got blown out tonight versus had we lost it in 2OT or something very dramatic like that?  I do.  If we were going to lose I didn't want it to be close, and it wasn't.

We will win game 6 guys.  Just relax.  Chicago was too good to go down in 5.  Simple as that.  I am amazed we won game 4 honestly.  I kept telling people at work all day on game 4 day that it would be 'too good to be true' to go up 3-1 in the series.  But we did.  Now Chicago has the daunting taks of coming to a college like atmosphere in Detroit again.  We are winning this in 6!

How dare the fans be upset when their team doesn't even try?   :rolleyes:   

 

The team essentially didn't show up.  In a playoff game no less.  One thing to lose, another thing not to show up.  What do you expect people to feel like?  

 

I thought we'd try to stage some kind of comeback in the 3rd, but I don't even remember Crawford having to make a save.  Instead, all the pressure was on Howard.

You and most fans fall into this trap that if a team didn't win or score a bunch of goals, they didn't show up.  News flash, there's a competitor on the ice also.  The wings looking 'not as good as last game' has a lot to do with the desperation of the better team they are playing against.  Fans have a hard time distinguishing between a team not showing up and the other team playing better.  Chicago didn't allow us to control the game.  We weren't able to impose our will.  But the Wings showed up.  Game 1 I would say the wings didn't show up, and this was a better effort than game 1 was, much better effort.  Just not as good as games 2-4.

 

But again, you cannot expect a team to win every game, nor play at such a high level, EVERY GAME.

Oh and by the way, because we won game 4 it would appear that we 'showed up to play', but if you ask me, we got very lucky.  Howard was left out to dry but came up big (stole the game), and also had a lot of puck luck and goal posts help him out (not discrediting Howard, but we got the bounces).  

 

I'm just tired of reading "we didn't show up" if we lose a game.  Chicago fans were saying the same after all their losses.  Chicago played pretty decently in games 3 and 4, we just played better.

Also the announcers are making a big deal about Toews scoring.  Well, that's 4 goals now in like 35 or 36 playoff games.  Not that scary.  We'll see what Monday brings.

 

I'll only get nervous if we drop game 6.  Game 5 I fully expected to lose.

We were down 3-0 to the Sharks.  Won game 4, and got killed in game 5.

 

That series was already over.  This one can still go either way.  

You guys are acting JUST LIKE the chicago fans were acting on their boards after a loss.  the same people losing their minds here were praising the wings just this morning.  It should have been expected not to win this game, IN CHICAGO!  You knew chicago was going to show up with everything they had.  It's hard to do that two straight games. 

 

Now we go back home.  If chicago beats us there, they deserve to win the series. 

God man.  Fans are so wishywashy.  People need to stay more even keel.  Look at the bigger picture.

Guys calm the F down.   My god.  We have them by the throat.  Remember a couple years ago when we went down 3-1 to the sharks?  Game 5 we beat their ass something like 5-1, then lost in 6. 

It is not surprising that we were due for a bit of a let down and they were due for a big game.  Actually, I was hoping we'd lose badly.  Sometimes your team needs a good reminder.  We'll get them in 6.

 

If we don't get game 6, then I'd be worried.

But EVEN IF we lost in 7, which sucks, they have over achieved this year.  Chicago should win, they have more talent. 

But just remember, we still have the upper hand.  We'll get them on Monday.  Stop being such fanatics.

how many times have we seen this, where we pepper a team all period with nothing to show for it, then lose?  God I hope we are on the other side of that this time!
