I'm happy with the outcome. I just wanted to see Hossa lose. I don't hate the guy but how often do you get to see this kind of story?

Bummer! Red Wings will have to rebuild their dynasty. Oh, I say give us another year.

NHL, as if you haven't seen enough of Crosby get ready for more of Bettman's idolization.

Now it's time for the Pens to finally take it to the Wings in their home town. One more game, and the Pens will have the Cup to a crowd of angry Red Wings fans.Clap

What? The Pens won destroyed the Red Wings 0-5. The team with the least points wins. I mean, why else would the Penguins not try to score or defend their goal.LOL

Red Wings come to Pittsburgh, surprisingly lose, then back to Detroit for a Game 7 victory. PENS! PENS! PENS!

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!!!!

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."

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.
