Shaw must be a mental giant to have such enormous telepathic powers to prevent Howard from moving without even having to touch him.

That no goal was clearly a make up call for the miss on Franzen which led to Kane's goal.
Sounds as if the bad calls were fairly balanced then and in the end the clubs not that far apart on the ice. For the Wings, the impressive thing is they are winning the series, for the Hawks, it means they still haven't beat a good team in the playoffs since they won the cup and questions could start to be asked about their battle level and tenacity.

On paper, and on basis of season, Hawks should be winning this easy. Hawks are in their zenith with star players at prime of career. Red Wings are in transition and with star players in their latter years.

Doesn't speak well for the Hawks that they are having this much difficulty.
