Wings vs. Ducks - Round 1 Game 1

Puck is about to drop.  Can the Wings continue the ride?  Can Howard continue to stand on his head?  Time to find out.

My only hope is that I will be able to function completely tomorrow after watching the game.  "Enjoy" the last playoffs with these ever-so-frequent late ass starts.

Wings are hot. The defense is playing great and Howard is proving his worth in these last 18 games. 3 shutouts and a 1.83 gaa.

The problems plaguing the wings the last couple years in the playoff has been their offense. Hope Frazen can stay hot and the other key contributors can step up.

4-1 wings

Thanks. Great suggestion. I'm on 205 now

Btw, I called Directv and the customer service rep couldn't figure out why the wings game is blacked out. The strange thing is that my buddy a few blocks away can see the game on NBCSN through Comcast.

Playoff hockey is the best thing in professional sports. Double OT games. 5-4 power plays late in games. The emotion and intensity is unmatched. The heartbreak at 2 am when you lose in OT. It's everything that is great about sports

in hockey, but that call was complete BS. You can't jam your stick up into a guys armpit and then expect to get a holding the stick penalty called on him. At the worst, if he closed his glove around the stick, Toews was hooking/obstructing as well.

Beautiful game winner though, you fantasize about that opportunity if you're a forward and wake up in cold sweats about it if you're a defenseman/goalie.
