Didn't get to watch much of the last two games so not sure how they ended up back in Syracuse, but I'm on my way back too!  Can't wait and hope I'm there to help them celebrate the Cup!

Had a great time at the game. Passed Stevie Y a couple times as he came from his seat right past the end of our section. My daughter got
Nyquist's autograph when he came out of the locker room. Missed Tatar but we went out and she waved to him on the bus and he came out for an autograph and a picture. War Memorial is a great old venue. Saw two octopi and a win. Great win!!

My daughter sent this to me so I don't know where it came from. If you didn't see what happened to Krejci last night you have to see that.

Got home at about 1am and was too tired to read much so just got through the GDT. I don't have anywhere near the hockey experience that most on this board do, but after attending my 1st Redwings game I thought I'd share the impressions of someone who took 1/2 a day off of work, drove 6 hours and spent $400 to watch this ...

Ericsson and Kindl stood out as bad even when everyone else played so poor last night. Helm is sure fast, just wish he could put the puck in the net when he gets there. White worked hard all night, even down 6-0 he was hustling and making plays from his knees when knocked to the ice. Hudler is a shooter! Both his goals looked like they were going in when they were still on his tape. Granted the second was into an empty net behind Price, but when he got the rebound it wasn't a deflection or knock in, everything slowed down, Huds controlled the puck and placed it in the back of the net. He needs to shoot more, but I'm just glad I got to see Detroit at least score last night! Really bummed never even got to see Howard at our end of the ice but was almost happy he was pulled and spared the rest of that game. Hope he enjoys the long weekend with his family in Ottawa, has a blast in the All Star Game and comes back top of form ready to start a road winning streak!

Bell Centre was a great place to watch a game (except this one) and my daughter and I still managed to have a great time. Lots of Detroit fans there and never felt out of place. Got ragged on a little during the first intermission, but they were speaking French so I had no idea what they were saying to me! At 6-0 nobody said anything, almost like they felt sorry for us wearing Redwings gear and having to put up such a poor effort from our team. Smoked meat sandwiches were great and the Rickards Dark washed them down well! At least walking out I knew we were still tops in points and know we'll finish the season strong! Go Wings!!
