Caps all the way for me in that series. I can not stand the pens because of Mr. Crosby.

Caps are on a roll. Fun team to watch.

Wings are playing a tough team in the tall and burly Ducks. Now's the time to say we could use Rafalski and Draper.

DUCKS BITE!

Wings will need to come out flying instead of sit around till the third period. The Ducks were tired by the last twenty minutes but the ref saved their ass. Quick call that killed a Detroit goal in the last minute makes you want to buy a new TV. AngryLOL

How about Pronger and the rest of the sissy savages trying to fight after the game was over? They knew they were out played but still acted like Neanderthals. Can't wait for the next game (and better to watch the game at a bar or it'll be time for more shopping at Best Buy).

lol yeah I saw that Hossa goal. the ref didn't even blow the whistle yet, they ruled that he was just in the motion of it so it was a no goal. I think the wings will come back though, they aren't playing their game right now.

Their playing Anaheims's game. Give the Ducks credit, for a bunch of thugs they sure do plug up the middle. Still, Babcock teams are persistent. Time to play for the full 60 minutes. Then break Getlaf's stick and shove it up Pronger's donger as Franzen lights it up. Heck, he's been about the only player to do so. Need more Datsyuk and all the other guys. Love his grit thoughl. For a smaller dude he sure get's under duck skin. Plucked Duck!

Say what you want about the Ducks but the simple truth is they are winning the series 2-1 against the defending Stanley Cup champs, and although we knew from the start that San Jose wouldn't get far, they were able to knock them out pretty easily. I am still fairly confident that the final will be between the Ducks and either Bruins or Caps.

Great game last night. Wings played like they were supposed to and the final score rang loud, 6-3. Ozzy did let one slide much too soon but after that the Ducks looked wounded. Franzen did light it up, so did Hossa, Samuelson and Zetterberg. Next game will be Datsyuk's turn. Are the Ducks running out of luck?

Another win. Wings are rolling. 4-1. Datsyuk was all over the place. Great effort.

Damn that was hard. Those Ducks still had plenty of fight left in them. Down to the last few seconds. What a relief now that the series is over. Chicago here we come.

How 'bout the Hurricanes? Stealing one at Boston to move onto the next series with Pittsburgh. Trivia - the visiting team has had more luck in overtime then team these playoffs.

New series, same routine. Next! If one shift doesn't do it the next one will. That's how it is when you are part of a machine. Another consistent effort from the masters of hockey. Sure, it took the Wings a collective ten minutes to get used to their latest foe. Check the tires and adjust the steering wheel. That's enough time to sit in the lobby while the machine get's a brief oil change too. Well oiled, with a change in speed and power, get ready for a revamped outlook on this series.

The Hawks are no Ducks. They skate better and are much faster. They are young and restless. But like any youth at the wheel, even in hockey, they need to gain experience. Who better to teach them then Detroit? Driving school is now in session and after the next three games the Hawks will have learned a valuable lesson and may have even earned a permit to hit the road.

Though the Red Wings won 4-1 that still was a tough series against Chicago, especially without two of their top players in the last game. Now onto the Stanley Cup. Detroit-Pittsburgh.

Go Wings!

Now that the Finals are here there is much to say. The two best teams from their respective conferences are in. That's great! It's also a repeat of last year in more ways than one so far. First off my chest, time to get the complaints out. Hockey is a grueling sport. Whoever scheduled back-to-back games must never have played at the professional level, and four games in six days is another mistake. Yet the players play on. The best part, despite the schedule, is that both teams are displaying action packed fun and emotion.

How about the scrum at the end of game two last night? Malkin taking on Zetterberg! You may want to know that instigator penalties at the last five minutes of any game, which it was, are automatic game suspensions. Yet in today's papers the NHL rescinded that part of the rule book. Wonder why? Could it be that Malkin is too high profile for judegment?

Though they played with gusto and had fresher legs the Penguins still have a hard time getting past Ozzie. I love it too! Pittsburgh, be careful what you ask for!

Who have been the heroes so far? The Octopus, Osgood, the walls at the Joe, and a youngster named Abdelkader (who has more goals than Malkin and Crosby combined). Most importantly Detroit plays the game as a team, by rolling four lines and getting productivity from all kinds of sources. They swarm on defense as a team so the likes of Pens dynamic duo have no room to move.

A repeat is in the works in more ways than one. Same teams as last year. Same stituation as last year. Detroit up 2 zip.

Go Wings!

They did. One of their better games. Home crowd and and too many men one ice are some of their fringe benefits too. Wings need to play a bit tougher and with more intensity, so as not to give Pit any fleeting moments of fancy.

Alright Emperor Barbarossa! Good to have you join in on the fun. Before you get too comfortable we've got more games to play. Sure is exciting to watch.

Detroit, get off you rumps! Scratch Drapes, Leino then get Kader and Pav back in there.
Red Wing defense is playing a game that may work with the likes of Columbus but not Pittsburgh (and not very well against Anaheim or Chicago either). Stop the cute little passes that tend to get intercepted in your own zone. Power the puck out past the blue line. Better safe than sorry.

Stuart and Kronwall - mistakes will cost your team. Need to skate much faster.

That's my bitchfest for the day.

Go Wings!!!!

Nice to talk to you again Seko! Last year sucked, but we'll get our revenge. Your Wings destroyed the Pens the first two games. It would be nice to see the Pens win the cup this year. Especially to shove it in Hossa's face for going to Detroit to "get the Cup."

That's more like it. A complete game, if you like the winged wheel that is. Where have we seen a reaction like this before? Determined desperation with class! We also saw major meltdowns too. Ah yes, from the likes of Anaheim, Chicago and now Pittsburgh.

Great 5-0 victory for Detroit.

Now onto Melon Arena to lift another cup. It will be tough but with an extra day of rest and by having Dats back the Red Wings can't be denied.

Go Wings!!!!
