You want adversity? You’ve got it. Nobody (hopefully) was dumped in the making of this 3-1 series hole in which we’ve dug ourselves, but it is time to rely on our old friends for support to dig us out of the emotional depths. And you know what that means?
Yes, that addiction to Sega Genesis (NHL 94 anyone?) and our best and most reliable pal, Pavel Valerievich. Time to pull out all the stops. Time to watch his magic. Time to feel the intensity of our backs against the wall and pull together through the most desperate of situations. Playoff adversity has pushed us to our dire and bitter end, and we will respond. Oh yes we will. Game 5 in the catfish capital of the United States (no Carrie, I’m not talking about you, relax).
The loss of helm was so much bigger than anyone realized and noone stepped up to answer in his place. Helm is one of those unsung heroes that help fuel a team. Howard did look good at times but others he wasnt sharp. Lidstrom had the first series without recording a point in his career. Sucks donkey balls but even when they turn sour we still get to know how good the team is in general. Making the playoffs is much harder now and getting there is great in itself. Time to regroup, reload, and recharge. We need to find a tough guy for this team.
The better team won this one. If they had played they way they did in the 3rd from the start it would've been a different story. Sorry to say it but Nashville outworked Detroit this whole series.
I'm really not angry though, it's what I expected and it was predictable by the team's lackluster performance the last month or so. I'm a bit disappointed but that's the way it is and was always going to be. Roll on next year and I hope Nashville get swept by the Kings (or whoever I don't care).
NHL 94...what a classic. First NHL game I ever owned. I was 9 years old and I was putting people thru the glass with Primeau, and scoring sweet wrap-arounds with my guy Stevie Y. Memories....
Nice touch with Underwood clinging onto the guy her husband is trying to shutdown.
