Welp. Just left the Honda center. My voice is shot. My review, they looked better. Took advantage of the ducks mistakes early on and have themselves a nice lead. Jimmy definitely didn't play his best game. But the team looked good. Still could be better, definitely gotta work on exiting their own zone. The passes were there for the most part and Pavel played one hell of a defensive game, he had some pretty big hits too that I was jumping out of my seat for. My dad and my cousin were with me. As well as two other wings fans next to us, but other than that we were surrounded by orange. I was about to have a heart attack by the time the third period expired I knew they had to make something happen on hat power play at the start of OT. If the ducks had killed off that penalty then I think the wings would've been in trouble. But as soon as I saw Goose move in and I saw the net fly back after he released the shot I was screaming like a school girl hugging my new drunken friends next to us and jumping like a lunatic. Honestly the most fun I've ever had at a hockey game. Definitely a night ill never forget. If they can carry this momentum over into hockey town for the next few games then I think they can put the ducks away. Now I begin my three hour drive back home and get to wake up for work in the morning. But I wouldn't trade a single second. Now I understand those "because it's the cup" commercials there's nothing like watching a playoff hockey game live. No other sport compares to it
Well, it was a disappointing game. I was hoping the team from last week would show up and play. I'm hoping this isn't the same story on Thursday because I'm actually going to that game. My first NHL playoff game and I hope to god they don't lose, or that I don't have to knock out a Ducks fan. Last time I was there to see a game the Wings got shut out and it was pathetic. Plus I got stuck in the middle of the most annoying fans on the planet, I was ready to drop kick the guy behind me. PLEASE DONT LOSE ON THURSDAY WINGS. PLEASEEE
I couldn't be happier. I live out in CA about 2 hours from Anaheim, so that means im snagging tickets to either game 1 or 2 asap. Are any of you guys gonna be at the games there? I didn't get a chance to see them in the regular season, and i've never been to a playoff game so I figure this is my best chance. The way they've been playing I honestly think they could beat just about any team right now. If they keep this hot streak going and dont mess with the lines then I can see a lot of good things to come in the next few weeks. But for now, let's just celebrate our Wings continuing the greatest streak in any major sport at the moment.
It's playoff races like this that really make you wish the Wings would have just won a few of those extra giveaway games they played earlier in the year. So many games they could have won to avoid this all. But oh well, they've been hittin the juice this week it looks like. Finally scoring some goals. Let's all hope that trend continues on.
I don't understand why they aren't playing Tootoo regularly, especially for hard fought games like this. They scratch their one guy that actually plays with grit? He has twice the amount of hustle as any other given player on this team right now
They looked great tonight, hopefully we get to see a lot more games like this this season. 3rd and 4th lines played great on both ends of the ice, plus Mrazek looks really promising, I like his style. I'm ready for Helm to get back out there though, I miss watching that guy fly up and down the ice, he's desperately missed.
This is my first post on here by the way, I've been a Wings fan for quite some time now. I'm from central Cali so there aren't many people to discuss games with here. I figured I should be with my people.
