Does anyone know a place to watch the game online?
Predictions on Game:
Det-3 (Hossa 2, Helm)
Pitt-2 (Crosby, Stall)
(I suck! never again)
1-0 WINGS!!! Beat him like a rented goalie.
I like your attitude but have no idea what your saying...
I understand if you're not going to call penalties, but the penalty on Kronwall? Weak.
Well that on top of the no call on Cook against Lindstrom...Rediculous
Especially since the same act was why the penalty was called against Ericsson last game, giving the Pens the lead on a PP. I understand not calling something close, but that was just too obvious. Especially since that was number 2 tonight.
Good first period.
score please (not please score)
Responded before I even got to the end of the thread
I'm lame, score already covered.
period maybe if your a penguins fan. Wings looked sloppy and from now on im just gonna assume that pp=goal for penguins. Wings are absolutly terrible at winning battles/races for the puck, blocking shots, and clearing pucks out of the zone on the kill.
If you had to pick a weakness im sure you wouldn't want it to be at a time where your naturally weak to start off with.
Decent first period by all except the referees. They're screwing up offsides, icing, face-offs.. basics! The officiating has been awful this entire series, I don't understand it. It's like they're operating out of some special "2009 Stanley Cup Finals" rulebook instead of the normal one.
I almost want to think that the NHL doesn't want any team to win, they just want this series to go longer than 4 or 5 games. Then again, calling the high stick during the Pen's PP just turns it back into shitty officiating, instead of the league prolonging the series.
"2009 Stanley Cup Finals" rulebook:
- Malkin can do anything with repercussion...
- Crosby's name must be said in a 10-1 ratio ( 1 mention every 10 words)
What's with the Wings getting kicked out of every faceoff?
They went through it pretty well on NHL Network after the game. The problem was that as the Penguins' centerman was putting his stick down the Wings' centerman kept lifting the Penguins player's stick before he could get it down and they were in effect jumping the draw. It was actually one of the better breakdowns of faceoff situations that I've ever seen done on TV.
Nevermind. Defense just bad.
Defense just bad and powerplay is death.
We need Datsyuk back BAD!!!!
steamed shit served on burnt rice.
Dontrelle Wills this afternoon >> the Wings in the 2nd period
i love steelers, hate the penguins, and have confused feelings toward the city of pittsburgh
that shorthanded goal was just killer
absolute deflation of the team's morale and it showed
agreed Stall goal in effect won the game for Pitt...
my favorite part of the series is how pittsburgh fans get outraged whenever someone on their team gets hit or knocked down. i know crosby gets free penalties like that all the time, but it doesn't apply to everyone on your team pittsburgh fans
I was at game 1 and we do it too...I recall more than a few times I booed ( along with most of JLA) for a few no calls, but damn they did it everytime one of there players hit the ice.
Edit: btw i will no longer be predicting the score on here. I did it the past two games and we lost both. Sorry.
the penguins started playing well, and the second period was a killer for them. they had not had a good second period all series, and now they put in three, the shorthanded goal, completely deflated the Wings, as well as energized the Penguins. then the other two goals within the next 5:40 were pinpoint passing, except for Crosby's where a wings player blocked the initial pass from Malkin. If i were a Wings fan, id be worried, Crosby finally scored. He's been having good chances on goal so far this series, he just haven't been able to put it in, due to Osgood being a great keeper, and the pipes. but now he's scored, so if that opens the flood gates, id be worried for you guys.
The second period is the key period for the Penguins in this year's playoffs. In their 14 wins they have outscored their opponents 18-7 and in their 7 losses they've been outscored 10-7.
4 games in 6 nights dude. They let up a bit, then couldn't bury anything in the 3rd. I don't think it's a positive, but have some faith.
wings drop game 5
pens drop game 6
wings in 7
been saying this ever since midway through the conf finals. it's still a series!
i was thinking the same thing. this reminds me of the recent pistons, for some reason. i get the impression the wings, for whatever reason, take games, periods, plays off because they think they can. im hoping now they're backs are against the wall and they're gonna come out fighting.
and they NEED datsuk. honestly, why isnt he playing. its the stanley cup championship. we need him bad
but I agree. The Wings looked totally out of gas last night and the schedule is killing them.
Quick! Someone get the tin foil!
