    Ellis has been masterful in this game...With all of the stops he withstood, 53!!! He is the # 1 star in this game whether the Predators win or not. The defense has been good around hit too. That goal with 43 seconds left suck the wind out the Joe and me.....I don't want to even go back and watch the OT....I will look at sports center later....

    A little stressful, but the Wings got it done. It would be nice to wrap this up in Nashville.

    funniest thing for me has been that "specialists" from various red wings forium started bashing Holland(before OT) that he has not signed with "top line forward". Franzen beated those idiots.

    Composure is back, so it is time to finish this series and pray that others go to 7th game.

    I have to admit, but this resembles the Wings of old. Too many shots and not many quality scoring chances. Yeah, they dominated the game, but you have to be able to score more than once on 53 shots. You are not going to get many shutouts, so you've gotta figure that one goal is not going to be enough on most nights to win the game.

    I honourably disagree with you. Quality chance does't mean always missed empty net. Just shots werent "perfect". And they didnt try to hang on one goal.

    But, yeah, around the net they should be better. Trotz himself admitted that they didnt deserve OT.

    RedWings are notorious for throwing garbage at the net. Some are so wrectless they shouldn't be called shots on goal.
    And when they have the PP they waste time passing the puck around when they should take it straight to the body and crash the crease.

    well this series was maybe one game longer than needed but wings played how they are suppouse to play and preds had only few moments there. Ellis was MVP in this series, no doubt.

    I have to admit, I know Bob Goodenow, the former player union prez, and he didn't think much of the commish. And Bob is not a bad guy in that whole thing, so I can trust his judgement. He wouldn't give me much, but he clearly didn't like the direction that league took.

    Interesting game winning goal from the center-ice. Crazy bounce, I wouldn't fault the goaltender. But Nashville is simply not good enough. Although, I have to be honest, a few breaks going their way and Detroit is coming back for the game 7. With this win Wings can breathe easier and just sit and wait for their second round opponent. It will be decided in the 7th game of the Sharks-Flames series. Should Sharks win, Wings will host Avs. Nothing like Wings-Avs series to get interest up. Should Flames win, they'll be coming to Detroit for the second round series. I'm pulling for Sharks.

    If Ozzie keeps playing this good, we might go all the way. He was fantastic in Game 6.

    Wings Win 4-3 over the Avs. Theodore looks washed up.

    Great game from Franzen, who is one of my favorite players now.
