I believe it. Down here in Toledo, while we have the Walleye and the nice new arena and family atmosphere now, I remember the Storm days where people attending a game pretty much expected to see a fight, and see the boys kick some ass.
I'm not nearly as worried about this series today as I was yesterday before the game started. The Preds were on their heels for large stretches of the game and benefited from a couple of extremely lucky bounces. Wings take Game 2 and steal home ice.
So exhausted trying to explain/give excuses why the Wings can't just freakin win. Can we get a 2011 Game 4 vs San Jose effort on Friday night....PLEASE?
I guess the fact that the teams put forth equal efforts tonight is inadequate to you. Believe it or not, a loss does not mean that the team completely sucked. Sometimes a team plays a good game but doesn't get the bounces.
I actually think we played pretty well for the last two periods. We carried the play and got a lot of scoring opportunities. They got some lucky bounces. Thats just the way it goes sometimes. I guarantee if we play like that again, we will win more times than not.
