well, if you watch the games you can see that the other team is just playing wrong vs the wings.
actually i am surprised that Joel Quenneville is running into the same trap like anaheim did. didnt they watch the wings before?
a offensive playing team will not beat the wings with babcocks brickwall tactics. they may win 2-3 games but thats it.
i still hear the whining when anaheim was leading 3-2 in games. but on the ice you could see it was only hiller kept them in the series.
now chicago has crappy crawfort. this team is no danger at all. not because they are better its just because babcock plays real ugly but result orientated hockey. is it watchable? no. does it have success? yes.
you can stop every rush when your brickwall is just thick enough.
as long chicago is not changing their game they will not win this series at all.
they may win today or get another win what i highly doubt but the wings will win this series unless chicago is changing their style. but i dont think they have enough time to adopt a new style nor have they the player to do so. but you never know. maybe quenneville can do something.

The SJ-LA game looks very similar to the Wings game tonight.

LA's playing a rough game right now, and the league going overboard on Torres is really hurting SJ.

LA's a tough cookie. Even if you're winning you never get breathing room because they only lose by a goal or two, and you'll be sure to feel it.

You are saying that playoffs hockey is result orientated/defensive hockey? That's nothing New. Even the Wings of 2002 despite all their great offensive players and despite Bowman had to play defensive-minded hockey.
It has been like that for many years now.
It will be interesting to see what wins, Pens' offense or Bruins/Rangers' defence.

well, you can currently watch this matchup with a offensive team and a defensive team in our series. wings will win 4-1 in games. same would happen in boston vs pens i guess. but you never know.

there is still a difference between defensive hockey and babckocks 5vs5 penalty killing hockey. he has no choice with this roster but nevertheless a bit more entertainment would be appreciated. you can skip the first 45 minutes of every red wings game this season and you dont miss much other the ugly hockey chess. but again. the results are on the table.

That article is awesome. Every sentence and paragraph is full of fail. Talk about a homer. If the Wings win this I can't wait to fill his inbox with let's try this again messages.

maybe they really dont want to let the coyotes go to the north. they rather own them until the end. but be brutal for the fans that you dont know wether or not the team will stay. needs a solution.

Pens up 6-2. Ugly series for Ottawa.

Really hope Boston beat these guys. The Pens offense is ridiculous though but the Bruins physicality should make things a little more difficult.

Maloney is such a good GM. Quietly, but he is.

Hopefully Maloney knows that a long-term extension with the Coyotes won't necessarily be in Glendale. I haven't been following that saga very closely lately, but I can't see them staying there much longer unfortunately. New ownership might want a different direction.

Have the San Jose Bettmans ever not given a 5 on 3 advantage in a playoff game? Christ.

To be fair, a puck over the glass is hard to argue against.

Guys, if we beat Chicago, and play SJ then Boston, I honestly don't mind our chances.

Agreed. I'm cautiously optimistic.

SJ has had our number in the past, but Quick is way too scary of a goalie to go up against in the playoffs. Rather see Niemi.

IF we end up making it that is. I'm just enjoying the ride and hoping for the best.

Yeah, and have you seen the amount of borderline hooking calls they always seem to get in their favor? Most protected team in the league behind Pittsburgh and Chicago period. Bettman is clearly trying to cash in on the heavy Latino-American demographic in lower California. The league won't favour teams like us, NY, Toronto, etc. because we'll always blow the revenue roof off.

LA to the conference finals, IMO they'll make mincemeat out of whoever wins tomorrow. A LAK-PIT SCF would be the worst possible scenario for me since I don't want to see a repeat and I ****ing hate the Pens.
So go Bruins

Don't get why the Sharks kept trying to beat Quick low when it seems literally impossible. Elevate the puck FFS.
