I don't think Boston took us lightly. They played really, really good. It was a very even game. I think we just saw that Detroit is, in fact, on the same plane as the Bruins. Very closely matched team. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2
This. Could have gone either way. Proud of the team nevertheless. Thats wasn't just dumb luck, that was hard work paying off. They were the better and more clever team over two periods.
I think the issue with Franzen is not that he's a floater it's that he gives up on a play too easily. That being said I think he looks good today.
Kind of. He played two or three nifty passes but also missed a great chance and lost that puck in a horrible way on the PP. He's a double edged sword right now. Strange for a player of his caliber and experience.
Is anyone else as pumped as I am today? I mean, seriously pumped? A lot of good games the last two days and now...finally...it's our turn! Anybody see that St. Louis win last night. How can you not love playoff hockey? Tonight can't come fast enough.
Don't know about the others but I'am. Bring the Bruins.
If Jimmy plays par to last years playoff appearance we can pull the upset. Let's GO Wings !
Hard to choose with a season with so many injuries and so many players that played for the team. Gustavsson was a good backup when healty. stood tall when he needed to. Without him we wouldn't be in the playoff. But beeing a good backup doesn't qualify one as MVP, if the goalie then this honour would belong to Howie. And Howie was to inconsitent for that imho. Nyquist was great obviously but it's the same as with Gustavsson : Without him we wouldn't have made it but he also didn't play enough for my taste. Wiht Z out for equal reasons that leaves only Kronwall and Alfredsson. Hard to decide but (Spoiler Alert) I'm going along with Nev here. Kronwall never was spectacular like Nyquist and he also had a few outright bad games. But despite that he manged to pile up piont after piont . You could almost say the same about Alfie but what impresses me more about Kronner is that while he constantly scored he was also usually our strongest D-man by far. And that's why Kronner is the MVP.
