Red Wings fan here. This all about Cal O'Reilly. He really is the Wing-killer. In the last couple of seasons, every time the Admirals have played the Griffins, O'Reilly has been feasting on the Grifs. Now you guys summon him up and the Red Wings get completely obliterated.
In all seriousness, with an effort like that, the Preds deserve to be in the playoffs. The Wings didn't show up tonight and a result like that is only fair.
Just one of the those nights where everything goes in, and quite frankly we deserved it! I really thought we wouldn't win especially since Erat and Bonk were out but we just flat outplayed the wings and they weren't ready. It's an anomaly but its still fun... hehe
Monster save by Rinne. Arnott with the hatty, the SAD line is really clicking again... I really really hope we keep Ward, I'd love to see Poile extend him, he's a real good 2 way forward.
Well we have to keep it up, but they are playing their best hockey at a good time.
Oh my goodness, what homers. Weber went out of his way to elbow Lilja? Are you freaking kidding me?
Their was no elbow to the face lol but what else did you expect mickey to say.
I am a wings fan, and i just watched the replay like 20 times, i have nvr seen lilja do something like that. after that play lilja left the game with an injury, so i decided to watch the replay to see if maybe his hand got caught or maybe weber was biting him (i was fairly certain that their was good explanation to that throwdown). but after watching the replay so many times i have come to the conclusion he threw him down out of mere frustration and babs mustve benched him or he got injured in the fight. this doesnt seem like lilja, but then again most of us dont no how he reacts when being destroyed.
Oh my, that was the best game ever. I'm still in shock at what they did. All anyone could talk about this morning was that game.
HAHAHAHA 8-0!!!!! That was amazing!
They did a new intro at the game. Gnash came out and started banging his drum at center ice, some new video was played. Everything focused on the "rivalry" with the 2 teams. It was like this was April/May already. It was pretty cool.
Sloppy starts had been a problem lately, maybe they got the hang of fast starts now.
We got the first goal and I was thinking this is good we got the first goal, that's key.
Then we got a second, wow that's even better, keep going.
Then the goals just kept coming one after another after another after another.
When the 5th was scored we were like, "Oh my God this is awesome...we got frosty's...10 MINUTES INTO THE FIRST PERIOD!!!!"
They scored so much and so fast that the crowd got tired. Or maybe everyone was in shock at what was happening, haha.
The second period was key. If Detroit had scored and made it 5-2 or 5-3 the game may have ended differently. BUT, the Preds just kept attacking and even scored on the PP.
Plus Pekka played great, that one save was the save of the year for us so far.
Stayed out of the penalty box, too.
Relentless attack. They never once gave up on a play, crashed the net and picked up rebounds.
I'm happy for Koistinen. He takes so much crap (mostly warranted) that it's good to see him get cheered for a while. And for Pihlstrom. He stopped at the net and got the rebound for a goal.
We've had our butts kicked by Detroit many times, so I'm enjoying this for all it's worth!
