Roast the Ducks!
Fucking right. We appear to be ready to skate/play tonight.
Getzlaf with the trip. Wings sure could use a PPG.
Wow so many chances. I like the energy!
A lot of shots that weren't on goal.
Sigh. No joy.
Anyone have a link?
Damn, that was close!
Datsyuk!!!! 1-0 Wings!
^ Good call!
Amazing as usual Datsyuk. WOW!
Sick fucking shot
Awesome to score late in the period. What a wicked backhand.
Really a very good period for us. It felt like we were in control the vast majority of the time
Indeed. And even though we didn't score on the power play, it was nice to get off more than one shot.
Great pass and play by zetterberg and datsyuk
I'm pulling for the wings. A Hawks/wings series would be great.
Really good period. One of the sexiest goals of the playoffs. Z with the great pass and a beauty of a move/shot from Datsyuk.
What a save!!! No idea how he stopped that.
these refs suck. It is like McInchek is reffing out there.
Dammit! Bad bounce, tied 1-1.
fucking Brendan Smith
This kind of shit has happened every single game for the ducks in this series...
How's that for luck.... gahhh!
Kyle Quincey sucks. Why do they keep playing him? Ian White is a much better player.
I hoped he would be better but White hasn't played in a long time. Just couldn't get it going this season.
True but Coliaccivo (or however you spell it) hadn't played in forever and he's been pretty decent tonight - much better than Lashoff had been. That DeKeyser injury has been huge. He was probably our 3rd best d-man, which is saying something since he spent most of the year at Western.
Yeah, I don't know. I really like White last season but he seems to have ended up on the shit list this year. DeKeyser was amazing. Excited to have him for a full season next year! The good news is that all of the D-men are free agents next year or the following. The bad news is that I'm not who is going to be available to upgrade.
Here's my list players I want gone for next season: Brendan Smith, Kyle Quincey, and Franzen. I'll take a bag of pucks for Franzen and Quincey at this time.
How about Filppula? He's done nothing. At least Brendan Smith is a rookie with upside. We've been waiting for Filppula to take the next step to consistent scorer for 5 years and he's never done it.
at least filpula has some trade value, unlike Franzen.
True that but he's unrestricted FA this off-season, so do we let him walk or try to re-sign him? It's a pretty weak FA market and someone might throw $5m a year at him. I don't think the Wings can pay him that.
Pretty sure all three will be here next season but hopefully when Qunicey is a UFA the following season they will have his spot upgraded. Filppula is a UFA next season so it will be interesting to see if they keep him and if so, at what price.
FML then. Franzen is the new Brian Raburn. zero trade value and will probably blow up at his new place of employment.
Cleary is the new Inge? He's also a FA this off-season. I can see the Wings Not bringing him back.
Does Cleary have a Mott patient tattooed on his arm like Inge?
At least Inge is a Michigan hockey season ticket holder.
How is that not a penatly for hauling down Z? HOWWWW?!?!
It must be Red Wing season.
WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is the CCHA reffing this game? #GongShow #Sergott
I really want one player to just knock out a ref for a missed call - I realize the refs have there own system to hold them accountable but a public reprimand or better yet a beat down would make me feel better (and my feelings are all that matters amirite)
Please tell me you're kidding.
Yeah I really wouldn't want that to happen, especially if it was something similar to what happened to this guy:
I'd settle for punching Corey Perry into the ref. Might be easier to get away with to!
Reprimanded some umps recently, the NHL should take note.
Smith needs to not play
That should have been a hooking call.
this guy disagrees
Is that a rat's head on Gary Bettman's body?
