Watching this game makes me excited for playoffs, the game had the playoff instensity and the playoff type of play. Defense first, offense second. Defense and special teams were a huge part on how the game was won today. Great Job wings! Now go to Montreak and show them that they dont own the game!
Everybody had an awesome period. Howard making huge saves for when st.louis had great chances, Datsyuk with the sickest goal ever, and Franzen capitalizing on the huge pp goal to take the lead, If the wings play like they did this last period, st.louis doesnt have a dream about winning this game. Keep the winning streak at the Joe rolling!!!
Slow start for Red Wings, it was all St.Louis for the first 10 minutes of the game. After the 10 minute mark of the 1st period it was all Red Wings. If the Red Wings can capitalize on this pp and continue to play how they ended the 1st, with out a question will win this game. Good thing Jimmy Howard is having a good game, score could be a lot worse if he didnt make some of the saves he made.
Look to see Detroit win the series. If Detroit wins and sweeps this series, then we wont even see Chicago in the playoffs and see Deroit in as a #2 seed! Id love to see Dallas in the playoffs instead of Chicago.
