Good series. Not the outcome I wanted, but definitely a thrill ride. Would have liked to see how it would have played out without the injuries, but oh well. At least the refs didn't impede much, and there weren't too many fluke goals.
Thornton is no longer a choker in my books, Marleau still is...that goal changes nothing. Couture is a beast, he's gonna (already is) be something special. Niemi was solid throughout.
Anyway, good luck in the WCF, please beat Vancouver.
Now I'll go drink myself to sleep, see ya next season .
Wings always bring it. No matter what. Game could have gone either way, but Im sick of playing you guys. Wings are so fricking good, and zetterburg is off the hook. Please stop playing us in the playoffs, I cannot handle it anymore...
Great series guys!! You Wings fans should still be damn proud (and I'm sure you are) of your team even though you didn't get the outcome you wanted. Coming back from 0-3 in the series and still taking it down to the wire.......impressive. What a team you have there in Detroit!
It's nice that we faced a class act like Detroit. I can honestly say that if we had to lose Detroit would be far more respectful than LA/Ana/Chi. I like our chances in the Conference Finals. Traveling from Vancouver to SJ won't be too hard on our players. I'm glad we don't have to deal with Manny. I think we just need to play the same game against Detroit. The twins to me are a lot like playing against #13 and #40. That's my take. I'm glad Marleau woke up. Hopefully he has a copy of the Roenick talk on an Ipod to listen to during practices and intermissions.
LET'S GO SHARKS!!!!!
Much respect to the Red Wings, 6 out of 7 games decided by 1 goal? I can't remember a series being this tight before. Thanks for a heart stopping series. I officially hate when Datsyuk has the puck since he so damn good he makes a scoring chance happen.
Man, props to the Red Wings and their fans. If there is one team you can never count out in a playoff series it is honestly the Wings. To me the Wings are like the Patriots of hockey. They are ALWAYS that team that you have to watch out far even if they're not having a good season. I may have a bit of a big mouth sometimes when my Sharks win a series but its hard not to get caught up in the moment. Anyways great series Detroit.
