That was the series in a nutshell right there.

For anyone else just tuning in, we never just had a 1 goal lead,

WE HAD A 3 GOAL LEAD in this game.

We have had all the power plays in this game.

The game is tied at 3.

How can you do anything but laugh or cry at this? It's just absurd.

Has this team forgotten that they're still facing elimination?

The pace we had at the beginning of the game is gone.

News flash, the pace was only like that because SJ wasn't skating as hard. Now that SJ smells blood, they've picked it up, and it has gone back to looking like the last 3 games. This is no mystery.

Time for us to stop thinking we're the ones dictating this series. We're not. We're a step down from SJ and Vancouver.

And, I hate to admit that. But it's true. The last 2 years have proved it. We have to retool a bit and get back on top.

Here we go. ca'nt wait to hear everyone and their mother look at the glass half full and be saying "they held serve now that's what we need to do".

How about you justf****** play hard and take it to them? Where are all the big hits?

No, actually this stat line says it all for this game.

Shots: SJ 46; Det 25
Score: SJ 2; Det 1

They give up 46 shots to only 25 and you guys are bitchin about dives? 18 shots in the 2nd period alone? Sheeyaat.


Half way thru the 3rd my wife said "One goal isn't going to do it for this game. The Wings better pick it up". She was right.

Dive schmive, the Wings had no jump after the 1st period.


While I agree with you that the wings didn't get enough offense going, I disagree with how you disregarded the dives. The dives have nothing to do with red wing offense. They do however, have something to do with putting the sharks on fake power plays and having increased chances at scoring goals, and oh they tied it on one of those bulls*** powerplays.

So, while I do agree the wings need to pick it up, the fans have every right to ***** about diving and bad calls. Sorry.

It bothers me about 10,000 times more because this is exactly how last year's series got away. Outside of the Game 3 collapse, the Wings were right with the Sharks last year and all the diving and embellishment gave San Jose every chance in the world to win the series. The fact that this series started with the same B.S. is just extremely frustrating.


The problem is that some people around here would say you're simply whining about the refs. I tell those people to go f*** themselves. There is no other sport where referees can have such a profound impact on a game. The NBA comes somewhat close but only in the last couple minutes of a game. In this game anytime in the game it can have a hugely profound affect. So, when the refs decide to give penalties to a team that doesn't deserve the penalty, then yeah we feel robbed.

6 to 2 the power play advantage for san jose. Mmm. yeah. 6 penalties to a team that was the least or second least penalized team in the league. MMMMmMmmm yeahhhhhhhhhh

Oh but the refs are human and make mistakes. MMMMMMM right. How long will people continue to actually believe that bulls***?

Wings definitely need to play better otherwise. They didn't have the puck enough, and didn't sustain much offensive pressure. They let Niemi off the hook. Most of the shots he faced were not threatening in the least.

But the question continues to be, why do the wings continue to be penalized one of the most in the league in the playoffs but the least in the regular season?

The wings didn't have the puck enough, and they need to play better.

That said, anyone here who is going to continue to defend the referees can lick my white ass. You clowns need to wake up. This league needs to either tell the refs to stop calling s*** they THINK happened, and only call it when they really see it, AND CALL IT EVERY TIME THEY SEE IT.

Stop calling chincy hooks while letting players get annhilated into the boards with elbows and all other s*** with no call.

f*** that. Never going to convince me the refs are "just human" and "miss the calls". Bullf****** s***. Often they are looking right at the play and don't call it. That's MANIPULATION.

The NHL sucks. If i weren't in love with the red wings for the last 20 years I'd seriously have walked away from it by now.

Pardon my french, or don't. f*** it.

Knowing the sharks he probably bit his lip

So they let obvious trips and boards go in the game and call a phantom slash they 'thought' they saw?

And then people actually defend NHL referees. Genius

Are we going to hate on Thorton and the rest of the dive team out of San Jose as much as we hated on Doan? Because if we are, I am going to make sure I get creative this time around cause I REALLY HATE the Sharks

Also, does anyone want the over/under on penalties against the Red Wings at 5??

Doan has many qualities that a fan would like. He plays with heart and passion. He may hammer people and take some cheap shots, but he tries to lead his team.

Thornton is a loser and until he wins something he'll always be an overhyped piece of s***. Same goes with much of the SJ team. s***agucci is the leading diver. Last year I think he drew 3 5 on 3 penalties from diving.

I hate ****** teams that dive. I hate it on the occasion a wing does it and I hate it when other teams do it. It just shows a disrespect to the game.

Ill get off my high horse now.

... both of whom have had some horrendous games thus far.

Uhh yeah both of those goalies have done jack s*** in the playoffs, so until they win a cup the verdict is out on both of those goalies, Luongo and Miller.

I still think Luongo is overrated. We'll see this year.

I don't know what the f*** that Phoenix player was doing with the puck just before we scored that 2nd goal but my god. Phoenix has brain lapses regularly. THey keep that up and this series is over tonight.

I'd like to see Bertuzzi get a goal, get him goin.

The refs are not cooperating with my theory LOL. I am surprised we have not had a ton of penalties called on us since we are up 2-0 in the series and had a nice cushion earlier. Lot of game left though.
