    TaS, you gotta understand that wielding the stick like a weapon, two handed hacks are usually massive suspensions.

    He swung hard, and if Franzen wasn't wearing pads, that would have hurt like heck.

    I loved the Wings taking a beating, dishing some back and not backing down. They are so much more confident on home ice even with the half empty crowd.

    You know I was just kidding of course. I've seen your passion for the sport many times. It's awesome.

    That's why to this day I despise Bertuzzi. I like the hard hits, but you gotta draw the line.

    I'm not saying he shouldn't be suspended... but when I saw he wasn't hit in the face, I didn't really worry about it.

    Unless it cracked a rib, I'm not sure why he was down for so long though. Once you get hit by surprise and go to the ice, you may as well just act it up a little. It's what they do in soccer... except for the ice part.

    Sorry i wasnt able to reply with u on the game. I was working at the office trying to get my little cubbie hole together. I ddint even know the tigers were on WGN until 2:30PM. Totally missed the game. I showed my girl the slice job by Calgary's backup goalie and she really gasped. Then I told her the repercussions of bringing your goalie and getting him kicked out.
    1. I said if the starter comes back up, its like leading Orlando by 20 with 4 min to go and they cut it to 3. The starters have shut it down AND one can come back in and get hurt. well in Hockey, if the goalie comes back in and gets hurt...WOW.

    2. Then, there's the next game. Is he getting suspended? Will it count now or next year?

    I'll see u at 9Pm...

    Pronger didn't wear a heart protector and almost got killed by a puck to the sternum. Dumb hockey players...armor up! They must like soft foods cause they aint got no teeth.
    What did we do to that goalie?

    Payback by Franzen with the game winner after yesterdays slash to the tummy!

    The pressure would have been on the Wings take care of business at the Joe if they had lost this one after out shooting the Flames 3-1 for this series. Finally they get to the second round. Go Wings.

    Good game by the Wings. Proving once again that a great goalie can steal you a game or two in the series, but the better team usually wins. Kipper was outstanding, but even he can't work miracles. If you give up almost 60 shots, something is bound to go in. Now get some rest, boys, and onto round 2.

    If Dallas wins tonight in Vancouver, the Wings will face the Stars.
    If Vancouver wins Game 7 at home, it'll be San Jose traveling to Detroit for Game 1.



    So who do we want? I think the Sharks have the more exciting team. Nabokov is a pretty good goalie and they have guys like Thornton, Marleau and young Michalek and Carle on their team. Might be a very tough matchup.




    I don't know much about Dallas. Seems like their defense is good. Any thoughts?

    Ok, looks like I should have finished the article. Yep, we fared much better against Dallas this year. The Sharks blew us out on two occassions.

    That wrist flick over the net with Hasek lying on the ice was pretty lucky.

    So was the goalpost Cleary hit with a minute or so to go in the third period. In the game it happens like that, you also need luck to win games. But sometimes you have to make your own luck.

    Kip was making his own luck. 50 saves! I would even argue that he was so much in the zone that he knew that shot was going to his the post and didn't want to waste his energy defending it.

    Kip was my fantasy goalie. It was weird rooting for him all year and wanting him to miss everything in the playoffs.

    Kip was the ONLY reason you won the fantasy hockey. He stole it from me!!

    At least he's gone now. Now, if YOU would only leave. :pound:

    He could've stolen the series from the Wings as well. I think many people are happy to be rid of him this year. Nabokov/Turco - here we come.

    LOL. Bite me Wood shop!

    You had the best goalie (Brodeur) by far and paid less for him. I think Nabokov helped me as much as Kipper in the end. Brodeur had me sweating so much that I wasn't able to pull my goalies as early as I wanted to and it almost cost me dearly.

    I can't wait to resume our battles. Baseball and basketball are mere distractions now, lol.

    I'll bet Brodeur will be the number two pick next year (after Crosby), but I'll pass on him cause I hate the Devils. I've got another goalie in my mind.
