About an hour out. SJ favorites to go up 2-0.
Let's go wings!!!
60 minutes, I feel that they will do fine. If there is another letdown like early in Game 1, well it might be a short series.
There is no doubt in my mind this is going to the Wings. 2 days off and plenty of motivation. I say 5-2 Wings.
Depends on how Howard plays. I think he'll play well and we win, but it's far from a certainty.
are a joke, they choke in the playoffs every year, hopefully the wings can dominate tonight.
Eaves out with an elbow injury, Williams in. Howard needs to have his A game today. Go Wings.
Wings will win the series if they win this game. Nabokov has played relatively well in the playoffs so far, but he's a choker and won't keep it up.
I seriously think you guys are setting everything up for a mass jinx with all the Sharks=chokers talk. Let's keep that stuff quiet until after the series.
stupid PP led to heroic PK but i think the second period might be more telling as to who will win this than the first
has been inconsistent these playoffs, however, it seems like he's brought one of his A games tonight. knock on wood.
highly doubt anyone in San Jose will be naming their kid Pavel any time soon
1-0 Wins via Datsyuk wrister from just past the blue line
Anyone else see Helm go down looking hurt after hitting someone?
edit: nevermind he is back on the ice
....becoming a common theme in this series already. Another common theme is that the penalties have been unwarranted.
Since I know I have on red wings goggles, I try not to complain about the calls. But I have to say that there have been some pretty soft penalties. The 2 minute minor to Franzen for getting hit in the face with a stick in game 1 comes to mind.
Both penalties that led to the GW 5 on 3 goal were questionable calls.
<blockquote>We don't need no stinkin' defense.</blockquote>
on a more serious note, it looks like neither team is really interested in playing solid D tonight. 2 -- 2 with 4 minutes left in the first? WTF?
Daysuk just walked right in and almost scored; two seconds later the puck is being fired at Howard.
breathe, breathe. okay now go get another beer. remember work is overated anyway.
Another SJ dive, another SJ power play goal.
Welcome to the new NHL.
has to be a point of contact in order for the penalty to be called - not saying they're not diving and the Wings aren't getting hosed. but they have to play smarter and adapt or else they'll be facing this shit allllllll series. they wised up game 5 in the phoenix series.
about to have a big house 500th size meltdown.
Whaddya know....a legitimate goal by San Jose.
Whether it's hockey or football, you're always the first to jump off the cliff. Get a damn grip; there's still a LOT of hockey to be played.
I could do without all of this "they have to score on this pp" crap. More than 2 periods left, down by 1. It is not a make or break pp.
inaccurate but ok.
was an awesome save. I thought we were going down 3-1 for sure.
jesus howard is playing out of his mind.
fucking dogshit penalties.
and i really hate versus coverage.
holy shit a wings on the PP
A Shark in the box?
slashing at 8:30
These announcers, or at least the side commentary, is so pro San Jose it is sick. Plus, the guy just said a goal was "sassy." Sassy? come on
Yeah, tied up!
Tomas Holmstrom= the most underappreciated Wing ever. He's been screening goalies since 1732
I like him in front of the goal. But when he handles the puck he looks like he is choppin wood.
As long as he gets it to a teammate, it doesn't have to look pretty.
