    These guys earned their stripes the last 3 playoff seasons and it's playing off. Excellent GM work, adding instead of running around with their head cut off.

    2-2 game.

    We get a two man advantage to start the third period. We need to capitalize on it.

    Black Sunday. Black Mother's day. Take your pick.

    Lousy- Tigers are bombed 16-4

    Lousier- Pistons lose ugly

    Lousiest-Wings lose in O.T.

    (The top two shouldn't make a difference, but the hockey loss may hurt).

    Everyone is asking when the Red Wings are going to start playing at a 100%. But maybe they already are? Maybe that is as good as it gets for this team and Anaheim is that much better. I still hold out hope that this year the stars align and the Wings get to the cup, but it is a tough road ahead.

    Hockey is so different from BBall. You can make a lot of mistakes in BBall but hockey is unforgiving.
    Gijere is easily Haseks successor. Got to hold him off---for once.

    Calder out, Kopecky in. By the looks of it and from what I'm hearing Calder must be injured. Kopecky wasn't supposed to be back until the next year, but with Wings running short on bodies he's inserted in the lineup. He missed most of the year with a broken collarbone. Ducks have a couple of people out as well. I bet Ottawa is licking their chops - they should get their series over quickly and then they can just relax and watch Detroit and Anaheim beat each other up.

    The disappointing thing is that Bertuzzi really can't skate with any purpose. The good news is that we have played neck+neck with these guys, and if healthy, we might even have had an edge (Schnieder, Bertuzzi, Kronwall etc.).

    I truly believe we play more inspired on the road. Hopefully we can steal one at the Pond and make it a best 2 out of 3 with home ice.

    Thankfully the Wings are winning tonight, up 4-0 right now.

    GO WINGS!

    Right Roscoe. The Pistons are still up 3 games to 2, The Wings are crushing the ducks on the road, and your fantasy baseball team is beating down that pesky 13 year old for me so all in all it's a pretty good day. :):sssh:

    Great game from Wings, making up for Pistons loss. What's up with the goon squad called "Ducks"? They become the same thing that Calgary became - frustrated and running around looking to hurt someone. I hope NHL puts their foot down on that bull.

    I heard that Pronger might get a suspension, but that Homer was able to come back might hurt that case.

    The talking heads on TSN said that both teams would be lobbying hard. The Wings for a suspension and The Ducks to avoid one.

    I told you guys we can win this series if we just play Red Wings hockey.

    Kudos to Babs for having the guys ready, Hasek for a shutout and Homer for being so great!

    I hope Pronger really does get suspended - I hate that guy.

    Oh yeah, for those of you who missed the game, we chased JS Giguere from the net. Considering how much success that guy has had against us, it's great to hit him in the mouth a couple times with even strength goals.

    Oh and Babcock switched up the lines, separating Datsyuk and Zetterberg. And the Wings just kept throwing the puck in the net.

    This is an entirely new year. There are no goaltenders that are going to keep us down. We're not scoring pretty, but we're putting puck in the net. Just keep it going. At least one Detroit team is trying to move on.

    Here's another good article about Wings. This is from NHL.com:

    This one got me laughing:

    Without Pronger, our chances to win Game 4 just increased exponentially.

    I predicted Wings in 7, but with a little luck, it might come sooner.

    Btw, this is some of the best Detroit hockey I have seen in years. The boys are playing with so much heart and resilience.
