"We're g-g-g-going back to D-D-D-Detroit, bitches!"
#1 Star - Jimmy Howard kept us alive ALL GAME LONG
#2 Star - Niklas Kronwall puts Ryan Clowe down AND scores a goal...the Cerebral Assasin
#3 Star - Henrik Zetterberg/Pavel Datsyuk the Euro Twins got it done in both ends.
Ohhhhhhhh hell yeah!
So, my insomnia rages on again tonight...In between loads of laundry at 3 in the morning, I decide to cruise on over to the Sharks message boards to see their reactions as the game unfolded. At first, their comments were full of enthusiastic positivity. As the game wore on you could tell that their confidence was falling faster than a cheerleader's panties on prom night. By the end of the game, that's when things got REALLY interesting. They turned on their team so damn fast. They were bitching about everyone! Honestly, they had more bad things to say about their team than they did about the Red Wings. I was actually shocked. I just can't understand how a "fan" can say they support a team, but turn on that team so quickly. It must be that "bandwagon" thing... We grumble and complain about certain things, but in the end, we cheer them on to do better next time and we BELIEVE they can. This win really seemed to take the confidence out of Sharks fans for games 6 and 7.
Franzen looks terrible out there. I hope Bab's finally makes the call to put Mo in.
This guy would be so fired up that I think he would offer twice as much potential as Franzen. And Hulder would never match Mo's intensity.
The Wing's do have a few holes in the lines that we might not want to admit. I am sure Bab's is afraid of a Mo that just skates around swinging his stick all night but he proved in his one game that he knows what the post season is all about.
@tplamon I really would like to see Mo out there, too. I feel bad for the guy. You know he wants to play so damn bad, but he has to be diplomatic and just accept his fate.
The win tonight was a great Mother's Day gift! Bring it back home Tuesday and make the Sharks remember just who they're dealing with.
@Reddy he is hurt...but at the same time, the wings seem to play better when they're "making up" for someone being gone. Look at the regular season when Datsyuk was out, and the first series with the coyotes when Zetterberg was out...
so, I made away color cookies to inspire getting a game 5...we got it. I made home color cookies to inspire getting a game 6... we got it...do I have to make some more away color cookies?
@Fin If you go to Google Images and type in "Red Wings Octopus Cake", the first picture is this amazingly insane cake of Al. It is sick, whoever made that cake has some serious culinary arts skills.
@Fin my wife went out yesterday and bought a octopus cookie cutter thanks to your pic.... You and your culinary confections rule the land!
@D.M.N thanks...I'm contemplating either cupcakes or an octopus shaped cake for next game. I have a bit of time to think about this...there will be something though
@Fin Do what you gotta do, Turps.
