    I couldn't believe the penalty call. There was the same thing done to Samuellson a minute before this call, and they decided against putting Detroit 5 on 3. And then they call this with under 2 minutes to go. You knew Ducks will score on that.

    Geez, what a way to lose a game. Dats takes a bad penalty, Franzen can't clear the zone, Lidstrom tips the tying goal in, and then in OT, Lilja loses the puck and Selanne shakes Hasek out of his pants.

    Our shot at four teams in the finals or championship series in a 10 month span (Shock and Tigers last fall), was just blown today i believe. We knew the ducks would pull JS-G in the last minute, but to give them over a minute and a half of 2 man adv due the penalty is just %$@$$%$.

    Credit JS-G (I can't spell his name) for turning back what was it 35 shots and the wings failure to capitalize on 6 or so power play ops. Those little mistakes and Liljia goes from hero to goat in a 3.5 hour span.

    This game was a downer for me today..%^%&*(. Hopefully the Pistons make feel better tomorrow. Oh by the way, nice comeback sweep of the Cards after getting beat up by them last year and being sucker punched by the Sox last week.

    The Wings will play better next game. I just hope Lilja doesn't have a mental setback because he's really improved his play since last year.

    He was the goat for turning over the puck, but the Wings also blew a lot of scoring chances.

    The pressure is on the Ducks now to close us out at home. If we win, I like the Wings in a game 7 on home ice.

    I like your optimism, but I don't know if a team can overcome two heartbreaking overtime losses. I sure hope they can find a way somehow.

    If you follow a lot of playoff hockey, you know that the later rounds tend to go 6 or 7, and that after the first round, it's all grind it out hockey.

    I'll worry when the Ducks win their 4th game and not before. Like San Jose, they haven't shown themselves to be overwhelmingly dominant. They've basically squeaked out some close ones, and with such a young squad, I expect to see Detroit play them even or better in Game 6.

    Patience folks. This is a very resilient Wings team that has continued to exceed everyone's expectations.

    I'LL TAKE UR WORD FOR It BRO. All i know is that i had chest pains up until that OT goal then I had to take a PeptoBismol shake. I really do believe we can take Game 6 IF we unleash all the forces known to man.
    If we lose game 7, it probably wonnt bother me as much as a Game 7 loss would. Like when The Pistons beat the Spurs in game 6 at SA. I was so proud. I wasnt getting a ring anyway, so GAME 6 was my ring(see Lakers vs Isaih game in 88) . Im putting all my eggs in an Anahiem basket!!Go Wings!

    Wings need to capitalize on their chances and play better on PP. They outplayed Anaheim for the most of the game and had two mental lapses that cost them the game. At this level they need to play error-free hockey to be able to move on to the finals.

    Just came on to see the score. Not much interest here at the forum. Hope they can come back and win this one.

    Down 2-0.

    Wings don't have any get up and go. They look collectively jet lagged.

    This is just pure torture.

    Wings cannot get a decent bounce, and when they kinda do the puck is bouncing...
