No. Our "worst" team in 20 years was one goal worse than them. We have no rebuild years. Our scouting and drafting and player development is still the model way to run a franchise. Let these idiots write about and think whatever they want but the Wings aren't going anywhere any time soon.
I know Howie wants this game so bad. He has so much emotion in every play and every game, I would feel really bad for him more than anyone if the Blackhawks win especially how he carried our team the hole season. With that said, my pre series prediction was Hawks in 6 so in reality I should be happy with how it's gone so far but I won't be satisfied until it says 00:00 on the clock in the 3rd and a higher number on the visitors side of the score board.
This is why going up 3-1 WAS such a big deal. It's very difficult to win 3 games in a row in any playoff series. If Chicago manages to do it then good for them, but this gives Babcock one more chance to get things right and the players to make some changes. Game 7 could go either way.
even if the wings win game 7 no way they go any further having to play in cali. just embarrassing that they were up 3-1 in the series and now were going to game 7. they were up 2-1 going to the 3rd and they lose 4-2
hawks are in their heads and theyre scared. good luck wednesday your going to need it
Are you serious? How is it embarrassing that we take the presidents trophy winners to a game 7? Regardless of what lead we had. Wednesday is a toss up. The pressure shifts back to Chicago for game 7.
I just love how the Hawks are playing the best they can and they are still getting beat. They aren't beating themselves, they aren't really making many mistakes, they just can't seem to wrap their heads around the fact that the Wings are better than them. Period.
First 3 game losing streak of the season for the Hawks. First time ever Toews has taken 3 penalties in a game. I hope when Howard shook Gordies hand he told him we are trying to make up for the gaffe of a game the Wings played on his Birthday. (Unfortunately Gordie probably doesn't remember.... but maybe.)
This meltdown by Toews is so awesome. If your alternate captain has to come over and cool you off while you sit in the box in shame, you aren't captaining right. We need at least one more in the third. No way this game finishes 1-0.
I've seen more predictions from both sides that this is going to be a blowout when in truth we should know better lol. I will go with 4-3 Wings in OT but wouldn't mind a 7-0 Crawford chasing or something like that.
Not a bad period. The refs started the game like they were going to let them play but then decided they should start calling things here and there and have become completely inconsistent. Crawford looks suspect and Howard seems to be in the zone again. He is not giving up much in terms of rebounds.
Q on that list is a joke. I herd experts saying at the start of the year that if the Wings made the playoffs that Babs should get a nomination for coach of the year because of how much their roster downgraded in the past couple years especially with the defense but I don't really mind the other two nominations.
I've been to a couple Wings v Hawks games at the Joe and there are always a couple aholes who think it's okay to clap and cheer during the national anthem just because they are wearing Chicago gear. As long as you don't do that or try to start a "Detroit sucks" chant, you will be fine.
My Mom was losing her s*** at the end of the game. Then she did the most ridiculous happy dance in front of the TV and started pointing and saying "HAHA Losers" When she saw Perry on his knees. If I recorded it and put it on Youtube, it would be the greatest video of all time lol but I wasn't fast enough.
