Stuart trying to make up for his last game 7 no doubt.

Give him at least a little credit?

Nah, why would you? You aren't a real Wings fan anyway. Say hi to my cousin on the Blackhawks fan boards in about 3 years.

Wow, I guess Bettman must not be buying the refs. That should have been a penalty.

What a dominating game by the Wings. I am not even going to ask where this was all series long. This would be a 4 game series if Detroit played like this every game.

This could be the turning point of the game.

I certainly hope so. We just killed it.

Bryz is on his game so far. Wow.

I love the Red Wings pressure.

Something else to chew on.

In every game Detroit has scored 2 or fewer goals in this series, Detroit has lost. 3 or more? They have won.

It is very hard to win a game when you only score two goals. If Detroit scored 3 or more, then they would have tied game 1, and maybe done better in game 3 when they lost 4-2.

Howard is only part of the equation here. They need an all around strong effort. A passionate effort. If they don't play hungry, they will be done on Tuesday night. If they come out with a hard fought effort, they will advance. Its as simple as that.

Why are you saying howard will play big and wings will win, they were supposed to win game 6, too... they didn't... there's too much "We'll be fine"-thinking on these boards DAMMIT. :thumbdown:

Wake the f*ck up, wings play like s*** and being too inconsistent to qualify...

First off, being the fan of a pro team really is quite sobering. I used to feel like you did. If the Wings didn't win, I took it all negatively. I was hard on the team, and more over, harder on myself. After I started playing hockey, I got a whole new appreciation for the sport. When I watch the Wings now, I want them to win, but ultimately I know that its up to them to make it happen. When I play my games, I want to win, and I know that my performance and the performance of my team dictates the outcome. You feel that you have more control over the outcome because you are playing the game.

The Wings were not supposed to win game 6 anymore than the Wings were supposed to win the Stanley Cup. The Wings had to come out with a hard fought intense effort to win, and they didn't. Fault Howard alone? No. Fault the team? Yes. No one brought their A game Sunday afternoon.

The general thinking on these boards is what most fans do. If you are a glass half full kind of guy like me, then you think the Wings will be fine and you believe it. If you are a glass half empty kind of guy, like you are, then you think the world is coming to an end and the Wings are going to lose it. So who is right? We will see on Tuesday. No one knows what the final outcome will be. It just all depends if you are a pessimist or an optimist.

You can get pissed off at the Wings or members on this forum for being positive all you want. Just like I can continue to call out people like yourself for being bandwagon fans. The simple fact of the matter is that people will behave like they want to. In the end, the Wings will play their game and none of this really matters. Well, except for the bandwagon fans like yourself that will head off to root for the Blackhawks, Sharks, Caps, or other winning team down the road after the Wings have a few tough seasons.

There should be no doubt in the eyes of Wings fans when it comes to who should start in net for the Wings. Howard is the clear cut starter. As anyone who is a true hockey fan knows, the team has to show up in front of him. Otherwise, it will be just like when Luongo played for Florida. Sure, Luongo was good, but unless the team helps you out, there is no way you are going to win games. The team in front of the goalie has to come out with intensity and work hard.

I cannot say that Detroit has deserved to win in the games that they lost. Game 1 they played lazy. Game 2 they played reckless but came out on top because Phoenix did the same thing. Game 3 they played lazy. Game 4 they were dominant and clicking on all cylinders. Game 5 they played well, but didn't pick up the intensity until the last period of the game. Game 6 they were lazy again.

Inconsistent hockey will not win you championships. Inconsistent efforts will get you eliminated quickly.

The Wings are fortunate to be in this position. I have faith they will win on Tuesday. If not, well, just like I said last year when the cup final went 7 games.....if they lose they will have no one to blame but themselves.

We won the Cup in your building too.

And in less games I might add.

A majority of pens fans that are posting this disrespectful drivel weren't fans back about 6-8 years ago when the team was on the verge of bankruptcy.

The East is a joke? Who owns the cup? :)

Crosby beat you losers last year in your own building when it counted. Check that: The Pens won even w/o Crosby in the final stanza in your building. A little respect would be nice. All he's doing is leading the NHL in playoff scoring by 5 points.

I think you need to worry about Phoenix first before worrying about the kid who currently owns the cup and scored the OT game winner for the Olympic Gold Medal.

Cheers.

I only agree with two parts of your post.

1. Crosby should be respected. You don't have to like someone to respect him thats for sure. He is leading in the playoffs for a reason.

2. The Wings should worry about Phoenix as they haven't played their best hockey in 2 games out of the 5 they have played so far.

Aside from that, don't be a disrespectful moron.

Pens and Hawks both win today, when they should have lost.

Hope this isn't a preview for tomorrow.

They should have lost? Please.

They lost their intensity and tried sitting on leads. The Preds collapse was even worse as they didn't play smart. Yet they deserved to win? The better team won in both games today so far. Thats for sure. It wasn't like the Preds outplayed Chicago all game long or the Sens outplayed the Pens consistently in this game.

Jimmy with a shutout !

Damn, that will upset the LGW forum members who hate Howard. Bertuzzi getting a 2nd star? Maybe he will be the LGW whipping boy.

Datsyuk, wth lol..

Trying to give the LGW forum members a reason to blame Howard for letting in a goal.

15 minutes to go? May as well turn over the puck a half dozen consecutive times.

They are trying to provide the LGW forum members a reason to blame Howard for letting a goal in.

We had home ice tho. Even if we tie it up 2-2 they still have home ice.

I'm afraid the fat lady is warming up :(

Home ice doesn't mean crap anymore. Hell, every series was 1-1 up until this point. So every home ice team has ALREADY LOST home ice until tonight.
