Anyone else pissed off about the power play? No one is moving their feet, and all they can muster is the same old point shot that gets blocked and cleared. Boyle also decides he's better than everyone else and stays out the entire 2 minutes, meaning he's slow and tired and has poor decision making by the end of it. It even led to a shorthanded chance earlier in the game that came straight off of a Boyle mistake.
Seriously, that lesson/licking the Wings gave us tonight, demonstrates how you play a playoff game in order to not lose in front of your fans. Hope our boys take some notes and show up on Thursday otherwise, we'll go down as one of those few but huge embarrassments of playoff history.
p.s., hope our fans whom will be attending the game, also took notes.
His rebounds are half the reason why the Sharks can't get out of the zone or get a line change when they need it.
So it's Niemi's fault the Sharks get the puck on their sticks look up, and throw it around to the point THAT IS WIDE ****ING OPEN? His rebounds could be better, but he saved the Sharks ass in the first 2 periods.
He was deke'd out of his jock and Cleary missed a gaping net.
You mean someone almost scored on a breakaway? Shocking. How did that play develop by the way?
I spend the same cash. You act like another awesome team, plus the Ref's aren't playing the game. I'll be at game 7. I love hockey, even if we get screwed. This team showed heart IMO.
Hell, they might not be the better team. We may never find out due to the Ref's. When you can't do things because you'll get called and they KNOW the other team likely won't be, what do you do. It changes the whole approach to the game. The RefWings got away with so many too many men, it's not even funny. I've seen it before and I'm gonna try and capture it on camera next game.
I have seen them put a man in the O-zone from the front of the bench with a man still in the D-zone and they were definitely doing it tonight.
A few beers might be giving me a breath, but I'm not that mad. Refs + Great team beating the Sharks doesn't make me that upset, except at the NHL.
Although i wouldnt go so far as to say the sharks lost this game because of that too many men call - odds are they wouldnt have scored in the last 30 seconds.
But the game 4 blown calls are really starting to be big now. Which just sucks, because if not for those the sharks would have won this series already.
I suppose the positive side is that if the sharks do end up losing (god forbid), then we at least know that the red wings have nothing to be proud of since they were pretty much handed game 4..(and ya, the reffing was in their favor in game 6 also...but the sharks also played ****, so dont know which is to blame.)
At least the reffing in SJ has not been as biased. Dont lose game 7. PLEASE
I hope we win in Game 7 by scoring one single goal during the first period. Seriously... and i hope someone like Wallin slaps it in by accident from the blue line while the Sharks are on a change, with too many men on the ice, and it bounces off someone's skate right past Howard.
If we can't win by being the better team, i hope we do it in some disgustingly embarrassing way.
