    Sharks scored and it was only 30 seconds into the game and then another goal by the Sharks. Not a good start for the Wings.

    This is as bad as the draft.

    We need one of the next two. Preferably the 3rd one. But Wings struggled on the road the entire year and in the playoffs, so it is going to be extremely tough.

    Good game today, though. Got that win that they had to have.

    I got to dinner and it was a banquet with a lot of people I don't know. The guy in line in front of me is a friend, and as I walk in with him, I tell him the Pistons won.

    He tells me the Wings won as well. All I had known at 6:00 was that the Wings started off the game down 0-2.

    Fantastic. We can beat these guys. Now we just have to hope the 'Nucks can take out the Webbed Feet.

    Hey, that series is tied as well, so anything is possible.

    I'm still very worried about the webbed feet eaters. I dunno if we can beat these guys 4 times.

    D H stopped the BS at 2 goals. The first one was him. :+[
    I think he's ready for a shut out.

    It'll really be up to Hasek to come up big. It's hard to win at the Shark Tank and the Wings haven't done well away from JLA as Mikhail points out. Seems to me that you gotta win on the road in the NHL (and NBA) playoffs to get that trophy. They won on the road in the first series.

    You gotta look at this series as a 7 gamer now.

    If we steal one in San Jose, we've got a great opportunity to take the series lead in Game 5.

    I think Anaheim peaked too early. Vancouver is going to give them all they can handle.

    If we make it past the Sharks, we'll get Homer and possibly Lebda back for the next round. Opportunities abound because I think we're better than every East team except maybe Buffalo.

    it's all about the team's confidence now. This group is fairly young. I like the way they battled back to STEAL game 2. Now let's go to the shark pond and filet some fish.....................

    Go WINGS !!!!!!!

    We're lucky Sharks are nowhere as pontent at home as Calgary was. And we managed to win a game at Clagary. So, the chances are there, just keep playing.

    I can't believe the stupidity of the NHL in scheduling the Wings games at the same time as the Pistons games.

    Both clubs are having a hard time selling tickets. Why make it impossible for the people with means to watch/attend both events?

    When did NHL have any brains? Look at the state of the organization. Owners can't agree on things, players can't. They lost their TV revenues and the games are on Versus (???). The last thing their going to concern themselves with is NBA schedule.

    I hear Shark steak is pretty good.
    I guess Lebda never fully recovered or did he get brained again?

    Lebda, twisted ankle and concussion.

    Shark steak is really good.
