This game had it all. Extreme highs, matched with heart breaking lows. I may have even cried at times. We saw Zetterberg pull this team up on his shoulders and lug them down the ice into the offensive zone. As much as I hated to see this game almost go down the toilet in the 3rd, there is no better feeling than seeing Zetterberg rocket a shot past Hiller in OT while the Ducks skated to the locker room with their heads down.

Datsyuk’s goal was incredible, not only did he dangle the Ducks right out of their pants he was the sole reason the puck stayed in the zone. He should have gotten an assist to go along with the goal. I think Perry even cheered him on.
Detroit was lucky to get out of the 2nd with the game tied 1-1. Quincey + Smith = Garbage. Though I don’t fully blame Smith on the own goal since it was just one of those unlucky bounces. I have no idea how that pairing is still intact.
Howard robbed Selanne.
Tinfoil hat time. Zetterberg gets hooked and hauled down but no call. CNBC announcers accuse him of diving. Then in Intermission, Bill Patrick says that very disciplined hockey is being played because only 1 penalty was called. How’s that for logic.
The Wings get the power play and I think to myself why’s Sammy on the point, then he immediately sets up Z for a rocket. Smith drew the call to get the Wings on the PP, so at this point he’s redeemed himself
Wings go up 3-1 on a Abby/Cleary goal, and at this point I finally stopped biting my nails down to bloody nubs.
If you want a definition of classless, look no further than Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. To slash at a players ankle after the play because you are jealous of his hair, not to mention his skill is just plain bad sportsmanship. I understand getting frustrated, but as a captain you need to hold your composure and not act like a goon. Perry kept his mouth shut once he looked over and saw it was Bertuzzi hanging over the boards with his murder stare.
How is it that they have let two games this series slip away to overtime? Filppula made a boo boo, and Hank had to come in and clean up his mess.
It all comes down to game 7.
- Zetterberg. He couldn’t have picked a better time to break his goal drought. From start to finish he never gave up.
- Jimmy Howard. Not one of Anaheim's goals were his fault. He made some of the best saves of his career, while keeping Detroit’s in the game.
- Nyquist, Brunner & Andersson. They may have not ended up on the score sheet, but they played their hearts out.
LGRW! Game 7, 10 PM, Sunday.
I was at the game. After Abby's goal the place was crazy. Everyone stayed standing and cheering pretty much up to Etem's goal. After that goal everyone was still optimistic. The only goals Anaheim had were ones we gave them. After the 3rd Duck goal the place went silent, and I mean silent. Even in overtime you could feel the tension in the crowd. Z's goal was the biggest feeling of relief. It was a great game.
The were so many penalties not called in this game. Blatant penalties in front of refs. That third goal would have never happened if the ref called Perry for tripping Quincey.
Smith seems to be in the wrong spot a lot. I also noticed at times he would lose the puck because he was too busy getting one last check on a guy who checked him. But that's because he is young, Kronner will teach him as time passes.
Yep..it's official..the Ducks have retaken the spot from the Pens as my most hated team. Not that I even want to give them that much credit but man..I really hate them. Esp Getzlaf and that Rob Dyrdek lookin motherfucker Perry. Can't believe we let their bullshit trash talk get to us. MUST stay focused..thats why we got guys like Bert, to handle shit like that. Bert was having NONE of that shit. Thank you Captain Z for not sending us all to an early grave, in more ways than one. Game 7..here we come!!
Filppula gave me a Robert Lang flashback. The game has been over for three hours and I'm still a little creeped out by that.
Dear Boys: STOP STRESSING ME OUT LIKE THIS!!!!!!
Regardless of what happens next game, I would very much like to see Fairy and/or Getslapped lying on the ice writhing in pain after being either Kronwalled or Bertuzzi'd within an inch of their miserable lives. Fuck those fucking douchebags.
@Old Fat Bald Guy Nah, he doesn't do it unless provoked, and if anything it gets them pissed off when he's actually not that bothered, just winding them up.
